A June 2005 trip
to Banff by ilovegrayling
Quote: My parents surprised us for our 25th wedding anniversary with a trip to Banff. The two-hour drive from Banff to the ice fields took over four hours because of the camera opportunities. We stayed at the Caribou Lodge -- affordable, yet first-class! Lake Louise was also indescribable!
Don't forget to budget in the per day per person for national park passes. We did a lot of research for sight-seeing and places to stay and that was a surprise when we got there. The fill-up price for an Avis return was 10-20 cents Canadian less than the price per liter on the streets. We booked our entire trip through Priceline for about 1/3 of the cost of specials provided through United, Avis and other packages. Trout fishing is only in lakes by boat; streams are too silty.
