About the Author

Having grown up around the cliffs of Cornwall, wandering around in high places has become something of a habit for Oliver. He's since explored the trails of countries all over the globe, including the United States, New Zealand, France, Corsica, Scotland, Austria and the South Pacific, but he's never found anywhere that can measure up to the Canadian Rockies. Obviously he jumped at the chance to write the second edition of this book, and seems to have come through relatively unscathed despite the obstacles posed by high-altitude thunderstorms, a recalcitrant compass and a potentially nasty episode with an enraged marmot. He's currently back in the UK working on other projects, but hopes to get back to Canada as soon as the snows thaw.

If you're doing the road between Banff and Jasper. I would recommend stopping by Peyto lake. Morraine lake tour and Lake Louise Gondola are very fun, but if you're looking to cut expenses a little, I would cut out these two. Banff upper hot springs was a disappointment, they really could make it look a little more like nature.

This Book is more for Hikers, Bikers and Campers, rather than the average tourist. As such,however, it is very detailed and complete!

1.0 out of 5 stars too difficult to use July 25 2012
By J. C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this guide book very difficult to use, and I have read quite a few guide books before. I used this primarily for the section on the Canadian Rockies and found the problem was that the book doesn't give a general overview of the area, and keeps on jumping back and forth through various areas without a well thought out organization. As I was reading through the attractions, I had to look up a lot of background information to come up with a mental map to picture where the attractions are located relative to one another. In the end, I had to get another guide book, which was much easier to use, to help me plot out my itinerary. Given the difficulty I had with this guide, I can not recommend this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing July 17 2012
By SSS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book has some pretty big errors. For example, in the Regions at a Glance section which highlights the best parts of each park, they say that Icefields Parkway is referred to as the world's most spectacular road and then say it is Highway 1 between Banff and Glacier which is completely incorrect. It is actually Highway 93. This one error could cause people to drive in a completely different area to try to see "the most spectacular road. . ." I also think that the getting there section is extremely important because most people will be driving in. Although aesthetically pleasing, also really disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was hoping for Oct. 11 2013
By SUSAN LOVELAND - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not indexed well to use as a Kindle book. I could never find the sections I wanted to read even after a lot of clicking around. Also seemed to lack the most basic information I look for in a guide--practical reccomendaions about what to do and how to do it. I was very disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Lonely planet May 31 2012
By A S - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a lonely planet loyalist and have 2 shelves of LPs as souvenirs for every place I have visited. This is by far the worst written guide book in the history of guide books. No good maps or directions or details for suggested hikes. The getting there section has disappeared. Every time I was trying to navigate to a place / activity, vital details were missing and I had to look at multiple page references to get to any necessary info.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth Buying - Even in The Age of TripAdvisor and Yelp May 4 2012
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's easy to think that TripAdvisor and Yelp are all you need to plan a trip, particularly to a popular destination like the Canadian Rockies. But this book reminded me of the usefulness of a well-written, recently updated travel guide.

This is the first Lonely Planet I've purchased in about 5 years, and the first I've purchased for such a well-traveled destination. It's great to see that the series is still doing well. Thanks to the guide's advice we've changed our hotel reservations to cheaper, better accommodations, modified our itinerary to include a few out-of-the way spots we wouldn't have likely otherwise discovered and generally improved our plans for our upcoming trip.

User-powered review sites to a great job of finding a few stand-out locations, but this guide goes beyond that with a broader and more in-depth look at places to stay, things to do and (perhaps most importantly) things to eat in the park - not to mention history and context you'll never find on Yelp or TripAdvisor.

Plus - with this guide in hand on your trip, you won't have to worry about finding cell-service on your iPhone so that you can remember the name of that great little restaurant you were planning to stop at.

Do yourself a favor, if you're headed to Banff, Jasper or Glacier - even if you've been there before - get this book.
