    Default The Basics

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    If this is going to be a loop trip ending up back in Seattle, then the route is obvious: Go through Banff National Park going one way, and through Jasper National Park the other. The difference between those two routes is about 60 miles and an hour of driving, with the route through Banff being the slightly longer of the two.

    Both routes will share I-5 and the Trans-Canada Highway through Abbotsford to Kamloops BC. Doing the loop in a clockwise direction, you'd then take BC-5 up to T黎e Jaune Cache BC and then BC-16 (another branch of the Trans-Canada) through the Rockies and into Jasper National Park. The route becomes AB-16 on crossing the provincial border and continues all the way to Edmonton. Returning, take AB-2 south to Calgary and then the Trans-Canada (AB-1) west through Banff National Park. Hitting Lake Louise will require a slight detour farther north into the park than a strict loop requires, but it's well worth it. And by all means try to time your arrival at Lake Louise so that you can have lunch at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

    Also on the return route (if done in a clockwise direction) are two other very worthwhile Canadian National Parks: Yoho, and Glacier

    As for the dogs, you will need to be aware of Canadian regulations which will depend on the age and purpose of the animal.
