  • Getting around in Edmonton

    Banff National Park Transportation

    This is a one day excursion I took whilst I was in Banff (in July 2005) and it took me across Great Divide of the Rocky Mountains, Johnstone Canyon, Lake Louise, Valley of the Ten Peaks, Victoria Glacier, Moraine Lake, Yoho National Park's Takakkaw Falls, Spiral Tunnels, Emerald Lake and Natural Rock Bridge. It was a wonderful day and we had...

  • By Car./Motorhome

    Banff Transportation

    We hired our PT Cruiser at Calgary Airport and returned it to Alamo / National Car Rental in Banff ( cnr Lynx & Caribou St) 8 days later. The vehicle performed well and was covered in mud and dirt when we returned to the depot. No extra fees, there is no car wash in Banff and the staff were not concerned about the dirt.

  • THE ICEFIELD PARKWAY

    Jasper National Park Transportation

    One of the easiest ways to get to know the area is from the comfort of your own vehicle. The ICEFIELD PARKWAY(Highway 93) is often called the most scenic highway in the world. The 230 kilometre(143 miles) parkway got its name from the numerous glaciers that flank its westward side. The highway weaves through Jasper and Banff National Parks and...

  • Getting to Edmonton

    Edmonton Transportation

    ~ Arrivals ~ If you're flying into Edmonton you are going to land at the Edmonton International Airport (EIA). Each time I have returned from overseas and was required to go through Customs I found that it was a relatively reasonable time to get through. It could be quicker but it was fast enough that I couldn't complain about it. The baggage...

    Banff National Park Transportation

    When you're in Banff, most people go to Lake Louise as well. The route to take is Highway 1. Or alternatively, you can take the Bow Valley Parkway. It is slower, more curvy, and you get less grand vistas. But you feel much closer to nature on this route. Many places to stop off for a hike or camping or just to take pictures.

  • Trolley/Bus

    Banff Transportation

    Greyhound operates buses to Banff from the station at 327 Railway Avenue. It used to share the bus terminal with the local tour bus company until a few years ago. Honestly, checking the greyhound site it seemed a whole lot easier to take the shuttle bus to Calgary and go from there. (1.75 hours, $27)

    Banff National Park Transportation

    You have two choices - an open chair or enclosed bucket.......guess what I choose? Half way up I began looking at the floor of the bucket (Gondella they called it) every time it passed a piece of machinery to haul it further up it shuddered but when it came to a complete stop very near the top I was scared witless as it swung precariously in thin...

    At Calgary International Airport the offices of the on-airport car rental companies are all located in the building just across the street from the arrival terminal and are well signposted.

Churchill through Corona stations are for...

  • Unpaved roads in Kananaskis Country

    There are many unpaved roads in Kananaskis Country with dusty gravel surfaces. Many of them are really wide, like the Smith Dorrien Spray Trail connecting Kananaskis Country (near Kananaskis village) and Canmore. Some of them are closed for the winter and open in May or even June (like road 40 or 68). So, before going out there, check the road...

  • More tips for driving in Alberta

    1. Turn signals will give away your next move. A confident Albertan driver avoids using them.2. Under no circumstance should you maintain a safe distance between you and the car in front of you, because the space will be filled in by somebody else, putting you in an even more dangerous situation.3. The faster you drive through a red light, the less...

  • Get out of the way!!!!

    Alberta has some of the most aggresive drivers in Canada, and some of the busiest highways. Large transport trucks are always on the road - and in a hurry. When driving in Alberta, please note - go the speed limit, or higher! Driving below the speed limit, unless in extreme weather conditions, only makes others mad. If you are taking a picture,...

  • Air Canada, or is that Jazz?

    Air Canada has several different sizes of planes they fly you around in, large jets to 16 seaters. Fear not however, on each of the planes they have a stewardess, peanuts, and a toilet. However the smaller planes, usually operated under the name Jazz, don't have movies, or much leg room. Make sure when you are taking flights with Air Canada that...

    If you plan on making quick jaunts around alberta, or bc, try flying Swanberg Air. Started by two brothers who took charter planes to a fishing spot, this airline is a very relaxed, calm atmosphere. You can check in 20 minutes before your flight, meaning no waiting around the airport, fly right into the City Centre Airport in Edmonton (if you take...

    You should have a car or truck, so that you can travel from town to town. Additionally most of the better areas to go hiking, require that you drive to them. We decided to travel the Ice Fields Parkway. Here there are many trails and sights to see.

  • Rental Car

    I had booked a Compact car from Budget rentals a few weeks before we were due to head west. I find that you usually get much better prices than when you just walk up to the counter. In this case, for US$270, we had a great little car for 10-days as we put almost 2000 km (1250 miles) on it.It was an automatic, without either air conditioning or...
