A few questions from first-time visitor to Banff/Canmore
My family is travelling to Banff in July to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. The first part of the trip we are staying in Canmore, then the second part we are staying at Cathedral Mountain Lodge in Field. I'm trying to get a feel for travel time from Canmore to some of the destinations we are considering. We've got two kids, 7 and 9 years old, who aren't great car travelers (prone to motion sickness), so I am trying to select activities/hikes that don't require too much driving to reach a trailhead. Lake O'Hare at Yoho Natl Park looks so beautiful that it may be worth the drive. Can anyone give me an idea how long it would take to get there from Canmore and also from Field?
And what about from Canmore to the Fairmont in Banff?
Thanks so mich in advance for any help!
