  1. Day 1 Arrive Calgary

    Welcome to big hearted, fun loving Calgary! A beautiful city packed with trendy restaurants, a lively nightlife scene and all the honky tonk fun you could ever want, Calgary is best known for hosting the annual Calgary Stampede, which happens every July. After settling in to your hotel you’ll meet up with your Travel Director this afternoon, then head out to discover the city for yourself. Need a good coffee to wake yourself up after a long flight? Then the neighbourhoods of Inglewood and Kensington should be high on your agenda.

    hotel Ramada Plaza Downtown
  2. Day 2 Calgary – Banff (2 Nights)

    After one final orientation tour of Calgary, you’ll be hitting the road this morning in the direction of Banff. The journey is part of the adventure so enjoy watching the changing landscape from the comfort of your seat as the craggy, snow-capped peaks of the Rockies come into view. Banff is famed for its world class national parks, glassy emerald green lakes and dramatic vistas, a taste of which you’ll be getting on a sightseeing tour that will take you along Tunnel Mountain Drive, spotting sights such as Cascade Mountain, Mt. Rundle, Bow Falls, and the surreal, nature beaten hoodoos rock formations, which have formed their bizarre twisted shapes over years of erosion from water and wind.

    hotel Banff Caribou Lodge and Spa
  3. Day 3 Banff Free Time

    Waking up today we hope you're full of energy, as the vast natural playground outside of your front door isn't going to explore itself. Venture into the stunning wilderness of Banff National Park, or better still you could take advantage of our enticing range of Optionals to truly unlock this region in real Costsaver style. A variety of helicopter flights to see you soaring over sights including the Three Sisters Peak, the Sundance Ranges and the Gloria and Assiniboine Glaciers. Or perhaps you'd prefer to catch the gondola to the very top of Sulphur Mountain for a bird's eye view of six mountain ranges within the Rockies, spotting glorious Lake Louise and Moraine Lake in the distance. Enjoy golf with a view at Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course, join to the Plain of Six Glaciers hike, or head to Via Ferrata (“iron road”) for a heart-pumping blend of hiking and rock climbing. If you’re seeking a more “kick back and relax” activity, join a Bow River gentle float trip or pair with the Sundance Loop Ride through marshes and pools of bubbling thermal water—eyes peeled for wildlife along the way. However you choose to explore today, one thing’s for sure: Banff will be an experience you'll never forget.

  4. Day 4 Banff – Icefields Parkway – Jasper (2 Nights)

    The magnificent Icefields Parkway awaits you today, a striking 232km stretch of road that cuts straight through the backbone of the Rockies, serving up ancient glaciers, mountain lakes and broad sweeping valleys en route. Make your way up to stop at the 'Jewel of the Rockies', the vibrant turquoise Lake Louise, before heading on to explore the Columbia Icefield which covers an area of over 200 square miles and is as deep as 1000 feet in parts. Here, you'll ride the giant Ice Explorer across the Athabasca Glacier before trekking across the massive marvel of nature and filling your water bottle with fresh glacial water. After this unforgettable experience, head to unpretentious, heart-warming Jasper, which sits at the heart of one off the most beautiful, protected wildernesses in the world for a relaxing evening on your own or a three-course dinner followed by a 2-hour twilight wildlife tour & interpretive “Horns and Antlers” talk at Beckers Chalets set along the beautiful Athabasca River. Optionals copy: You’re in for a relaxing evening combining food, nature, and fun. Settle in at Beckers where you’ll enjoy a satisfying meal and views of Mount Kerkeslin and the banks of the Athabasca River. After dinner head into the great outdoors with your guide for a sunset wildlife stroll to learn about the diverse wildlife of the area. Our tip: Don’t forget your camera. You never know what you might spot!

    hotel Lobstick Lodge
  5. Day 5 Jasper National Park Free Time

    Today promises to be action packed! Stepping outside and smelling the fresh mountain air, let the prospect of a day exploring stunning Jasper bring a smile to your face. As the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies your options are limitless, and as always we’ve also got a range of exciting Optional Experiences on hand to help personalise your experience. Perhaps you’ll choose a gentle float trip down the Athabasca River^, which provides ample wildlife spotting opportunities, or maybe a guided walk on the “Path of the Glaciers” as you make your way to the emerald green “Lake of Forgiveness”. Have your heart set on exploring beautiful Maligne Lake? Then a boat cruise around the largest glacially fed lake in the Canadian Rockies has your name all over it.

  6. Day 6 Jasper – Sun Peaks

    Heading out of Jasper today you’ll continue your journey through Jasper National Park, passing towering pine forests, surging rivers, vast waterfalls and alpine meadows on the way. The crowning glory of your journey will undoubtedly be catching your first glimpse of Mount Robson, the most prominent mountain in the North American Rockies and the highest point in the Canadian range. You’ll then finish your journey in Sun Peaks.

    hotel Sun Peaks Lodge
  7. Day 7 Sun Peaks – Victoria (2 Nights)

    Today you will drive to the coast where you will board a ferry bound for Vancouver Island. After docking at Swartz Bay and making the short drive into Victoria, you’ll no doubt be struck by the English influence of the city. An introductory sightseeing tour will take you along the waterfront district and into the downtown area, passing the Parliament Buildings, Government Street and through Beacon Hill Park so you can really get your bearings. Keen to explore even further? Victoria has more cycle routes than any other Canadian city, so the best way to get around is undoubtedly on two wheels.

    hotel Red Lion Inn and Suites
  8. Day 8 Victoria Free Time

    Breakfast this morning is a real treat: you'll head to the world famous Butchart Gardens in the Blue Poppy Restaurant where, surrounded by beautiful blossoms and blooms, you'll eat a fresh, seasonal breakfast with sunlight pouring in from the vast skylights above. We want to roll out the red carpet for you: You’ll have a chance to visit the gardens on your own, before the gates are opened to the regular visitors. Feeling full, the rest of the day is yours to explore Victoria whichever way you please. Taste all Victoria has to offer in a guided food and history tour of Chinatown or sweeping views of the Olympic Mountains, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, James and Sydney Islands, and the Saanich Peninsula in the Victoria Panorama tour.

    meals Iconic Breakfast
  9. Day 9 Victoria – Vancouver

    The outdoorsy, trendy city of Vancouver awaits today, which you'll reach by ferry. Regarded as one of the world's most naturally beautiful cities, Vancouver is framed by dramatic vistas on all sides, and is the kind of place where, given its proximity to nature, you can ski in the morning and swim in the ocean in the afternoon! You'll kick off your stay here with a sightseeing tour of historic Gastown, vibrant Chinatown and the green jewel in the city's crown, the much-loved Stanley Park. With the rest of the day to explore Vancouver your way, you could choose our Capilano Suspension Bridge Optional, which at 200 feet (60 m) above the Capilano River will really test your head for heights, or pop on your trainers and take to the streets and explore Vancouver's diverse culinary scene which boasts some of the best Asian cuisine in North America. This evening, why not join an optional Farewell Dinner in the Gasworks neighborhood’s Steamworks brewery—their unique pours are the perfect way to celebrate your adventure.
