  1. Default Travelling from New York City to Calgary/Banff National Park in Canada?

    I know the drive from New York City to Niagara Falls is usually around 6/7 hours, and then I plan on driving up the QEW and then drive up to Northern Ontario on Highway 400 before heading west on Highway 17/TCH West 1 to Banff National Park and Jasper, where we planned a two week vacation.

    I was wondering if 10 hours is enough to go from Niagara Falls Border to Banff using the route I just described?

    Default Not Even Close

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    You're looking at around 3,700 KM from Niagara Falls, ON to Banff, AB going by way of the Trans-Canada. That's 5+ days, not 10 hours!

    Default Lost in Translation

    This is one of those things that is just sooo far off, I have to wonder if we're missing something.

    Just for comparison sake, The distance between Niagara Falls and Calgary is about the same as the distance between Niagara Falls and Las Vegas. I will also note that if getting from NYC to Calgary in the fastest time possible is the priority, then you'll find that it is quite a bit faster to drive across I-90 and cut north in Montana than to travel via the Trans-Canada

    Is there a reason you think you could cross 2/3rds of North America in just slightly more time than it takes to cross New York State, or is there something that has been left out here?

    I just mapped NYC to Banff on MS S&T, and came up with 2463 miles, 38 hours, 40 minutes. This is most direct route and does not go anywhere near Niagara Falls, much less northern Ontario.

    The route you propose maps out at 2700 miles and 49 hours.

    Just a tad more than 17 hours.........
