Itinerary

Day 01: Calgary

Fly Direct with British Airways. Arrive at Calgary International Airport, pick up your car and drive to your centrally located hotel. The remainder of the day is at your leisure to create your own urban adventure and form your first impressions of Western Canada. Overnight in Calgary.

Day 02: Banff

Leaving Calgary behind, you will set your sights today on the magnificent Rocky Mountains. Experience the majesty of the mountains as you first travel through the foothills and then enter Banff National Park where the craggy peaks look larger the closer you get. After you have arrived in the bustling town of Banff, the remainder of the day is free to explore its charms. Overnight in Banff.

Day 03: Banff

Banff National Park is a stunning wilderness and your outdoor playground for the day. Enjoy a gondola ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain for some panoramic views, visit the Cave and Basin, hike along one of the groomed trails or stroll through the town site of Banff to shop in the many boutiques and shops. Overnight in Banff.

Day 04: Lake Louise

Today you will be driving through the Bow Valley to get to beautiful Lake Louise. Lake Louise is the acclaimed “Jewel of the Rockies” and said to be Canada’s most photographed lake. With the Victoria Glacier in the background, this emerald-coloured lake is sure to leave an indelible impression. Admire the beauty of the lake from inside the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, which stands atop a giant glacial moraine. From across the valley from Lake Louise Village, you can take a chairlift up Whitehorn Mountain. Overnight in Lake Louise.

Day 05: Jasper

Drive to Jasper via the spectacular Icefields Parkway, said to be one of the most scenic routes in the entire world. We suggest a stop at Peyto Lake and a visit to Maligne Canyon in Jasper National Park. At the Columbia Icefield, take an Ice Explorer ride onto the massive glacier and experience the thrill of walking on centuries-old glacial ice. After this exciting experience return to the road for the final stretch to the resort town of Jasper. Overnight in Jasper.

Day 06: Jasper

Today is at your leisure to explore the uniquely beautiful landscape of Jasper National Park where serene lakes and gentle meadows stand in stark contrast to its jagged peaks and spectacular glaciers. We suggest a Maligne Lake boat cruise, a visit to Miette Hot Springs, or a ride on the Jasper Tramway. Overnight in Jasper.

Day 07: Clearwater

Drive the scenic Yellowhead Highway to Wells Gray Park. Before leaving the Rocky Mountains you will encounter one of its most spectacular sights, the mist-shrouded peak of Mount Robson. The highest peak in the Rockies can be seen for miles as you wind your way south through a vast unspoiled landscape. A visit to the volcano-shaped wilderness of Wells Gray Provincial Park is worth the detour. Explore the park’s mineral springs, serene lakes, dormant volcanoes and rushing falls. Not to be missed are the towering Helmcken Falls near the entrance to the park. Overnight in Clearwater.

Day 08: Tyax Wilderness Resort & Spa

This morning perhaps visit the Yellowhead Museum for a taste of frontier life or Spahats Creek Park before travelling through the ‘Lakes Country’ region. As you follow the Cariboo Highway south, you will visit towns and villages that echo the past, as this route was travelled by gold seekers and traders during the famous Cariboo Gold Rush of the late 1800s. Be prepared for the largest log lodge in the west: Tyax Wilderness Resort Here you will be able to indulge in all your adventurous dreams. Everything from bird and wildlife watching to horseback riding, mountain biking and gold panning. Overnight at Tyax Wilderness Resort & Spa.

Day 09: Tyrax Wilderness Resort & Spa

Additional outdoor adventures to suit every taste are available for booking onsite. Overnight at Tyax Wilderness Resort.

Day 10: Whistler

Start early today to allow yourself as much time as possible in the premier resort town of Whistler. The winding road leads through an arid landscape that gradually changes to lush forests lined with snow-capped mountain ranges. Once in Whistler, you may decide to play a round of golf in the shadow of towering mountains, hike along endless trails and high alpine meadows, ride on horseback past spectacular glaciers or white water raft down one of the turbulent rivers. You may wish just to relax in the enchanting setting of the pedestrian village and enjoy the boutiques, restaurants and cafés. Overnight in Whistler.

Day 11: Pacific Rim National Park

Travel the Sea-to-Sky Highway through a landscape carved out by glaciers and edged by craggy fjords. After a brief stop at Shannon Falls continue to Horseshoe Bay where you will board a ferry to sail across the Strait of Georgia to Vancouver Island. Your drive to the Pacific Coast will take you through ancient rainforests and provincial parks. You are venturing into true wildlife territory here, and you might even catch a glimpse of bears, deer or wolves. The Pacific Rim National Park is a marvel of ecological and geographical diversity as you will see as you pass through dense rainforests, steep ravines and windswept beaches. Overnight in Pacific Rim National Park.

Day 12: Pacific Rim National Park

Your day is at leisure to explore the rugged coastline along the network of hiking trails or walk the shoreline of Long Beach in search of shells and driftwood. Overnight in Pacific Rim National Park.

Day 13: Victoria

This morning’s drive will take you back to the east coast of Vancouver Island. En route you might want to visit Horne Lake Caves or Cathedral Cove. The coastal road winds through quaint seaside towns and the murals of Chemainus and the quaint Quw’utsun’ Cultural and Conference Centre in Duncan are well worth the visit. The day winds down in Victoria, the capital of British Columbia. This beautiful city has a fascinating maritime heritage and has carefully preserved its colonial charm. Visit the harbour area, the totem poles of Thunderbird Park or the Royal British Columbia Museum. For an unforgettably elegant end to your day, visit the Fairmont Empress Hotel for traditional High Tea. Overnight in Victoria.
