Welcome back to my blog:) This post is all about our weekend camping in Banff! If you have already watched my vlog, you will have seen what we got up to already but I thought I would also write a blog post just to cover the finer details about where we stayed etc. so here it is!
Jasper to Whistler
Our week long road trip was brilliant! We seen so much and enjoyed it all the more as my sister and brother in law flew over from Ireland to visit us for a couple of weeks. They first came over in October of 2015 so we had already showed them some of Edmonton, Banff and Lake Louise, so we all agreed that this time a short road trip would be fun.
As I tend to ramble a bit, I decided to break this trip up into two blog posts, so keep an eye out for Part 2!
Camping in Jasper was surprisingly a lot more pleasant than I thought it would be! Considering my last camping experience was at Oxygen years and years ago, I thought that camping with bears would be much worse, but it turns out, camping at Oxygen was!
I am by no means an expert on camping but I have compiled a short list of tips that may help any first time visitors camping in Jasper. I definitely recommend it, it is lots of fun and made all the more pleasant by having clean bathrooms and hot showers on the campgrounds!
As we knew we wouldn’t be settling in Toronto, we decided we would take a trip to Niagara Falls before we left for Edmonton. We are soooo glad we did. It is so beautiful and definitely worth a trip to see. We rented a car for 3 days and made the short hour and twenty minute journey to the Falls. Buses also run regular from Toronto or Richmond Hill and are about a two hour journey if renting a car is not an option for you.
