    Any suggestions on where to stay in that area? Is it possible to drive half of the highway on one day, stay somewhere in the middle, then the 2nd half the next day? Or should I drive it in one day with some stopping, then spend time in both jasper and banff at each end before heading back? I would rather spend more time on one thing than shortchange all 3.

    There are numerous campgrounds along Hwy 93, and there's also the NumTiJah Lodge, right by Bow Lake. I'll warn you now, it's quite expensive.

    They have some absolutely stunning artwork in the dining room :rolleyes:

    Regardless of where you stay, you'll have to make reservations ahead of time. Check out http://www.num-ti-jah.com/, and http://www.pc.gc.ca/pn-np/ab/jasper/visit/index_e.asp for more information.
    Cheers!

    Fantastic advice. I'm going to Banff and Lake Louise for a fortnight's skiing end February, beginning of March, and hope to take a few days off for photography. How much light will there be at that time of the year? I'm used to the cold and the dark, I live 60deg north in Norway.

    Stay in Canmore which is about 15minutes East of Banff and outside the park. Canmore is just a little quieter, tons of very good restaurants and accommodation.

    In February the sun should rise about 7:30am and set about 6pm. There are a lot of photo opportunities close around the Lake Louise ski area.
