Day 1 – 2: Vancouver – Whistler

When we leave Vancouver, you enter a land of snow-dusted mountains, dark conifers and sparkling lakes as you cross the landscape of British Columbia. Travel the old Gold Rush Trail and head to the adventure capital of Western Canada! Don’t let the fact that Whistler is widely known for being the ultimate winter resort fool you; Whistler has plenty of action all year round! It is an absolute playground for your mountain bike enthusiast, beginner or pro. For a very different view, try the zip line through and over treetops or enjoy a ride through the skies in a glass-bottomed gondola. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie or someone who likes to be at one with nature, there’s something for everyone in Whistler. In the summer you’ll find locals hanging out by the beautiful lakeshores, so why not join them for the perfect afternoon?.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 3-4: Wells Gray Provincial Park

Wells Gray is what Canadian dreams are made of and nature will never feel as close to nature as this. Suck in the stillness, silence and isolation. Don’t let the fact that Wells Gray is not a national park fool you, this place is stunning! Home to the famous Helmcken Falls, Canada’s fourth highest waterfall, the park is famous for beautiful meadows full of wildflowers and bears literally roam freely around the park. Enjoy views of high mountains, deep canyons, brooding old-growth forests and raging whitewater rivers. Tonight you’ll stay at a rustic guest ranch for an authentic Canadian experience inside the park itself.

Accommodation: Cabins included (multi-share)

Day 5-6: Jasper National Park

The legendary Jasper National Park is your next stop! This is the largest national park in Canada, Jasper will leave you in absolute awe from the get-go, with jagged mountain peaks surrounding you at every turn and wildlife roaming through the wilderness. The sharp-eyed may spot a Grizzly or even a caribou here. People travel from far and wide to marvel at this stunner of a park and to hike or bike its famous trails.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 7-8: Icefields Parkway – Yoho Ntional Park

Today’s drive will blow your mind as you cruise along the stunning Icefields Parkway. Running parallel to the Continental Divide, it’s one of the world’s most stunning drives, seriously, it’s insane!  Next on our list, you will reach Yoho National Park. ‘Yoho’ comes from the Cree word for awe and wonder and as soon as you start hiking through this national park, you’ll soon see how it got its name. The scenery will continue to fill you with complete awe as you walk to Takakkaw Falls, cascading from the mountains to the valley below, lay your eyes on the incredible Emerald Lake with its glacial hues and forest backdrop. Your group leaser will guide you on the Wapta Falls & Emerald Loop Trail to explore the best of Yoho. If you’re feeling adventurous, embrace your wild side with some optional white water rafting down the aptly named Kicking Horse River, which offers some of the best rapids in the world – not to mention the coldest!

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 9-10: Lake Louise – Banff National Park

A nickname like the ‘Gem of the Rockies’ has a lot to live up to, but that’s easy for Lake Louise. The imposing chateau looks on as mountains cluster around turquoise waters that you literally have to be seen in order to believe it! Once you’ve closed your mouth and rubbed your eyes, after staring at the incredible scenery that surrounds you, walk the beautiful lakeshore trail, hike out to the Plain of Six Glaciers tea house, or maybe rent a canoe and soak up the scenery by paddle power and explore the lake at your leisure.

Boot up and breathe in the crisp alpine air with the resident Marmots, bears, porcupines and elk. Whether you explore Banff National Park from the road or on the trails, you’ll be left speechless by its endless beauty. With 1600 km of trails, a town full of heritage and some incredible wildlife, you won’t want to leave this mountain wonderland. One of the more popular trails in the park is the Sundance Canyon Trail, a laid-back walk past rolling hills and flowing streams and through narrow canyons. You may choose to ride the gondola to the peak of Sulphur Mountain, or for something really special, take a scenic glacier flight. End your active day with a recharge in Banff’s heavenly hot springs.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 11: Banff National Park to Calgary

After a free morning in Banff, make your way to ‘Cowtown’ or Calgary! This one-time Mountie outpost is a unique city with the epic Rocky Mountain Range as its backdrop, so stay on after your Canada tour if you want to check out the western saloons and rodeo.
