  2. Day 2

    Calgary to Banff

    First stop today is Kananaskis where you will enjoy the highlight of the day, a 12-minute Summit Helicopter tour over the remarkable landscape of the Rockies.

    Banff to Lake Louise

    A half-day tour takes you into Yoho National Park to view some of its natural wonders.

Arrive in Lake Louise and spend the afternoon exploring the Jewel of the Rockies at leisure.


  4. Day 4

    Lake Louise to Kamloops

    Travel on board the Rocky Mountaineer from Lake Louise to Kamloops, in the heart of the British Columbia Interior. Your journey takes you through a spectacular array of scenery as you travel between the glacier and snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Rockies, over mountain passes and through remarkable tunnels, along rocky lakeshores and across the ranch lands of the Interior. Today’s highlights include the Continental Divide, the Spiral Tunnels, Kicking Horse Canyon, Rogers Pass and Craigellachie, where the last spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway was driven. (B, L)


  5. Day 5

    Kamloops to Vancouver

    On today’s journey you will again see dramatic changes in scenery, from the desert-like environment of the Interior, through winding river canyons and pristine forests, to the Coast and Cascade Mountains and the lush green fields of the Fraser Valley. Highlights include the steep slopes and rock sheds along the Thompson River and the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate in the Fraser Canyon. You arrive in Vancouver this evening. (B, L)


  6. Day 6


    You have a choice of activity today. Will it be a North Shore Tour with Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain or a 5 hour cycling Grand Tour of Vancouver’s highlights. Or perhaps a Made in BC small-group culinary walking tour to Granville Island is more to your liking or for the adventurous perhaps a Sea Safari to Howe Sound.
