Me and my wife planning to travel to jasper and banff end of Aug/2018. we are trying to plan the trip and since we are 1st time traveling we are trying to put to gather itinerary so we can spend times do/seeing things with out rushing. we will be staying-little out of jasper and banff since we are unable to find accommodation with our last min planing budget.
we are good with starting the day around 7ish and ending at 9ish so we can have some time for dinner.
is there anything in both town site to visit?
what can we do/see in jasper area with the time we have?
which must do/see spots can be covered and how much time required at each spot on the drive from jasper to banff ?
is visiting Columbia ice field tour must or can be skipped and just do glacier sky walk?
which hike spot is must in jasper and/or banff?
which skytram should we pick jasper or banff?
what can we do/see in banff area with the time we have?
also i noticed there is many canyon's and lake suggested but considering the time we have we are sure not going to be able to visit all therefore few suggestion of which one is must visit will help.
lastly any suggestion for good place to eat(breakfast,lunch & dinner) at both location and on the drive will help.
suggestion for this question will help us prioritize places to visit.
thank you in advance for taking time to make suggestion which will help us plan our trip.
