Driving from Seattle to Canada on vacation - what should we see?

What would you recommend for two adults to see in Canada? We're driving up from Seattle, only want to spend 4 or 5 days, and are planning our visit for mid-August. We're in our early 40s, and love beautiful scenery, easy to moderately difficult hiking, arts and music, shopping (especially books and antiques), and just relaxing. We've looked into Banff (looks gorgeous), Harrison Hotsprings (were told it can be boring), and Lake Loiuse (also looks beautiful). We'd like to avoid big crowds. One possibility involves seeing Victoria, a stop at Butchart Gardens, then heading north to the Banff area; is that too much or not enough for 5 days? Anything we should absolutely not miss? Thanks, travelling MeFites!
