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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Glacier March 23 2014
By Donald J. Kerns - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed that the Glacier National Park discussed here is the American Glacier NP in Montana, not the one in British Columbia that I plan to visit in conjunction with Jasper and Banff. This should be made clear in any advertising for the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok, but..... Jan. 17 2014
By VA in CT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In general I count on Lonely planet to give the real scoop on the worthiness of various tours and attrations within a country from a responsible and ecological stand point. This guide seemed to be vague, and was mostly a list of accomodations and places to eat.
