I need your sage advice please! Thinking about a June Rocky Mountain road trip, with family plus a few nights in Toronto to start, then flying to Calgary and stopping off at Bow River, Lake Louise, Golden Municipal Campground for Glacier NP, Revelstoke, Kamloops, Fountain Valley, Pemberton and finishing in Vancouver, via Whistler for 3 nights. Aside from Vancouver and Toronto it would be one night at each stop (Toronto would be staying with family and would include a trip to Niagra falls ) which I worry is too short a time to see much wildlife. I confess I know very little about this sort of itinerary and would appreciate your advice. It will be self drive either with hiring an RV or a car and staying in hotels.
I’m not sure exactly how wildlifey this trip would be and whether it’s worth my while going (it’s been orchestrated by my dad ho wants to see family n Toronto). Any advice welcome.. Also my dad has mobility issues and wouldn’t be able to do much walking so I’m not sure how much the would limit us as well in terms of wildlife viewing.
Here’s what I have so far:
The attractions that my dad has suggested we focus on:
The plan and costings:
There may be a possibility to add a day in Vancouver, but family are only available to show us around at the weekend and I’d be limited to 2 weeks due to already hoping to join Tomer’s Borneo trip later in the year. The plan doesn’t currently include any time on Vancouver island, would this be a mistake?
