7 days in Banff and jasper


We are a family of 4 adults and 2 children aged 7 and 4.

I will be staying in Banff and jasper for 7 days. I am trvelling end of May. Need help in framing my itinerary. Will be renting cAr from Calgary airport.

What activities and sight seeings would be possible with such small kids?

I was thinking of staying 4 nights in Banff and 2 nights in jasper.

There is plenty to see and do in the national parks. I would recommend you get looking for accommodations first, in case your itinerary is dictated by availaiblity. (That may not be the case in late May/early June, but many posters coming even a bit later are reporting having difficulty finding accommodations, especially in Jasper townsite, which is smaller than Banff and doesn't have another nearby town that is a good alternative to stay.) Then, for information on things to do and see, you can read the "Things to Do" section here on TripAdvisor, visit the national park websites, and also the official tourism sites, which list paid attractions, tours and activities.

Do you have accomodation reserved? If not that is will dictate how you spend your time.

Edmonton Mamma - why do you insist on repeating the same advice provided in previous posts? Don't you read them before commenting?
