Transportation
Secrets

We used our guide last week during a trip with our daughter’s family. The 43-page guide provided more and better information than we received from the Travel Company we had used to “plan” our trip. We would certainly order your guide for any other trip we might take out West. Thanks for your efforts and expertise.

Frequently Asked Questions (Banff)

Certainly! If you’re visiting for fewer days, just pick the days that interest you most — we provide a suggested priority order as well. If you have 5 or 6 days to visit, follow the itinerary in the order presented. Each day has additional activities for you to choose from. Our itinerary is designed for the vast majority of people who are entering Banff from Calgary. 

No problem! Each day works as a stand-alone day, so simply reorder the days as needed.

We design our itineraries for first-time visitors — those who want to see the best of an area. We don’t want you “missing out” on famous attractions! But we also place a high value on variety. So we might have a day where you do a hike in the morning and a boat ride in the evening; or a historical site and then a gondola ride. We consider many different things when designing each day.

Our itineraries are extremely detailed. If we tell you to do a scenic drive, we will tell you where to stop for the best views and, when necessary, give you some historical background. If we tell you to go to a popular location, we will cover parking tips. For hikes we include accessibility, terrain, and elevation gain.

Yes! Our philosophy is that it’s better to over-plan and cut things out on the fly than it is to have extra time and try to plan something on the fly. We efficiently group together many activities in our itineraries because we don’t ever want you wondering what to do next. But you can easily cut things out and adjust it to meet your needs. We have both worked with the elderly and disabled. Though we often suggest day hikes, we try hard to make the itinerary accessibility-friendly.

The itinerary and audio guide are available immediately upon purchase, right on this webpage. You will also receive an email within 30 minutes with download links in case you need to revisit the links and download the items later. If you don’t receive your email, check your junk mail folder. If it’s not there, contact mattandcheryl@wereintherockies.com and we’ll be in touch with you within 1 business day. 

Since the download is a PDF file, you can do it on any device: computer, iPhone, Android, tablet, etc.

Reach out to us at mattandcheryl@wereintherockies.com. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible to help. We’re even happy to jump on a phone call with you, if needed.

Anyone who wants to get a good overall feel of Banff and see the most famous sights, with some lesser-known sites as well. We travel with our children and with our retired parents. We are aware of the needs of multiple generations and we strive to provide variety that fits all ages.

Yes! Though our itinerary is designed for the vast majority of tourists who visit in the summer, Banff is open in the Winter and the itinerary still works! We cover what you need to know about the winter in the itinerary, including to check for closure of some roads and activities.

Yes!! Although we update our guides as needed, the concepts on how to view each park are meant to be timeless. We encourage you to purchase the guide as soon as you know you will be traveling. It will help you determine which areas to stay and how many days to obtain lodging. Upon purchase, you’ll be guided to create an account on our website. If we update the guide, it will automatically show in your account up to 18 months after purchase.

Because we think that’s how many days you need to see Banff properly.

No, you do not have to set up an account. But we encourage you to create an account when purchasing the guides because you’ll have access to the links at any time.

You will have access to the updated guide through your account (another reason to create an account) for up to 18 months. 

Frequently Asked Questions (Jasper)

Certainly! If you’re visiting for fewer days, just pick the days that interest you most — we have organized the days with our highest priorities first. If you have 3 or 4 days to visit, follow the itinerary in the order presented.

Not at all! You can enter Jasper from a few different locations. Each day of our guide works as a stand-alone day, so simply reorder the days as needed.

We can help! We have another guide specifically for Banff National Park to help coordinate your visit. We recommend that you take time to visit the stops on the lower (Southern) half of the Icefields Parkway on the day you leave Banff and drive to Jasper (Lake Louise to Parker Ridge) and then complete this guide as written with the Northern half of the Icefields Parkway on Day 2. There simply is not enough time to fully explore the full Icefields Parkway in one day.

Additionally, if you want a slower pace, feel free to add a day or two to your trip and do fewer activities each day. Use our provided maps to locate activities that are grouped together and choose several to move to a later date.

Because we think that’s how many days you need to see the best of Jasper. You can spend more, of course, but 3 days is perfect for the majority of first-time visitors.

  1. We love watching “We’re in the Rockies ” on YouTube. They give good advice and are practical. We went to Banff and Jasper in September. We ordered the guides from them and they were so helpful. They had information on booking tours, what was best for money and time, and when to visit different areas. Getting around in a new place and figuring out what and when to do things can be overwhelming, so they were a great help. Lots of good information.

  2. I’ve bought these guides before and this is the second one I bought. I went to Banff in June 2023 and this was a great and up to date guide. Every single thing that is important to see is listed. And then if you’re on a time crunch, there’s alternatives offered as well! Wherever my next national park trip is, I will for sure be using a We’re in The Rockies guide!
