About This Trip

The Canadian Rockies are sublime beauty made reality. Immaculate mountains, valleys and lakes marked with vibrant colour, combined with the purest, freshest air you can imagine creating this seemingly everlasting wonderland of natural beauty. We want you to see every corner of this mountainous paradise and this trip explores it all.  

 

Starting in Vancouver, spend time getting to know this great city with in-depth tours of the eclectic city. You will visit the stunning Vancouver Island by ferry, returning on a scenic seaplane flight. Then it is off to the winter sports haven of Whistler, for a mountaintop experience that will provide breathtaking views and everlasting memories. Then you board the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer Scenic Railway, stopping off in Kamloops before arriving in Jasper. With gloriously huge windows you can soak in the ever-changing scenery on this extraordinary voyage.  

 

After a bit of time in Jasper, you board your Ice Explorer vehicle for an incredible wild experience, traversing a massive icefield, stopping off at mind-blowing sights before staying the night in the most iconic hotel in the Rockies, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Then we hit Banff, with incredible mountaintop experiences and a cruise on placid Lake Minnewanka. Your Rockies adventure finishes up in Calgary, where after immersing yourself in its fantastic culture and gastronomy, it is time to take your compendium of memories back home.

highlights

It would be easy to hire a car and drive through the Rockies and it would be nice. But we want to go beyond nice. We want you to experience nothing less than spectacular! This is an immersive adventure, not a simple sightseeing trip. We created this experience to ensure that you covered every aspect of the region, by land, air and water, taking you to the beautiful highlights that are must-see, but also getting you off the beaten track to see parts of the Rockies that people don’t often see.  

 

With deep dives into Vancouver, Whistler, Jasper and Calgary, we cover the impact of people on this area, by exploring these wonderful towns and cities. Wildlife opportunities about everywhere, crossing to Vancouver Island poses a massive chance of seeing whales and flying back over gives you the most amazing perspective on the Georgia Strait. Your Journey Through the Clouds rail experience takes you through scenery as you have never experienced before and then your glacier exploration will literally take you into the middle of nowhere, in glorious fashion. Don’t just visit the Rockies, explore it!


location

Your journey begins in the stunning coastal city of Vancouver. We explore this area in great detail before heading into the heart of the Rockies before finishing up in Calgary. We will provide accommodation details for your hotels in both of these cities when you book so you can arrange transport to/from them well in advance.
