  1. Hi me and my friend (2 dudes) want to come to canada mid sep / start oct for 3 weeks! im struggling to put together a plan of what to do. we want to go to vancouver and are flying over from australia. is it worth driving the loop from vancouver through banff to whistler? im worried about snow on the roads as we have never driven in snow (ive never seen it). we love pubs bars and brewerys. anything that means meeting locals and new people and making friends. is this a good trip idea for us? any insight would be very appreciated

    1. It’s hard to say what the snowfall will be like next year, but usually during that time most of the roads are snow free. The Vancouver to Banff drive is a beautiful one, particularly on the coast near Whistler and towards the Canadian Rockies. You can see here for some of our recommendations for stops: If you can fly into Vancouver and fly out of Calgary the one way airfare might be worth your time.

  2. Thank you so much for this fantastic blog post. I am planning a trip to the Rockies in the fall and your article has been the most complete, detailed, thorough and useful so far. Being a blogger myself, I know exactly how much work this represents. Thank you for putting out this great post, you rock! Let’s hit the road in the fall then :-))
