Day 1: Vancouver & Kelowna, Okanagan Valley

From Vancouver, we cross the up-and-down landscape of grey, snow-dusted mountains and dark conifers. Set within a glorious range of mountains; Kelowna is blessed with lakes, pine forests, vineyards and beaches. We set up camp beside a pristine glinting lake, far removed from the city you started in, before you enjoy getting to know your fellow travellers on your first evening together in wine country.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 2-3: Yoho National Park

View the alpine meadows of Mount Revelstoke National Park en route to Yoho National Park. Hike or negotiate the rapids of the well-named Kicking Horse River. In any case, the tumbling cascades, glassy lakes and glinting peaks are drop-dead gorgeous… not to mention the glaciers. Your leader will take you to see some of the most incredible vistas within Yoho national Park, first Takakkaw Falls falling from the mountains to the valley below, followed by the incredible Emerald Lake with its glacial hues forest backdrop.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 4-5: Banff National Park

Boot up, saddle up and breathe in the crisp alpine air where nature’s bonanza includes beavers, bears, porcupines and elk. Ride the Banff Gondola to Sulphur Mountain’s peak and recharge your batteries in the heavenly hot springs.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 6: Lake Louise

A nickname like the “gem of the Rockies” is a lot to live up to, but it’s no sweat for Lake Louise. The imposing château looks on as mountains cluster round the turquoise surface. As for you, well, you could always hike out to the Plain-of-Six-Glaciers or inspect the scene by paddle power on an optional canoe trip.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 7-8: Jasper National Park

The widescreen scenery keeps on coming. The breathtaking Icefields Parkway provides a peach of a drive with panoramic views of endless valleys, sheer ridges, glaciers and spruce forests – truly one of the world’s ultimate drives. Jasper’s wildlife puts up a fight for your attention too; the sharp-eyed may glimpse grizzlies, wolves or caribou. This sprawling natural expanse offers bike trails, helicopter flights and ice-walks through the most spectacular scenery that the Canadian Rockies offers.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 9: Wells Grey Provincial Park

The stillness, silence and isolation go up another notch. Drive through secluded Wells Gray and experience the stunning vistas of high mountains, deep canyons, volcanic cones, brooding old-growth forests and raging white-water waterfalls – you’ve never seen anything like it. Nature surely never felt closer.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 10-11: Whistler

Travel the old Gold Rush trail through Cache Creek and on to the adventure capital of Western Canada! Perhaps better known as a winter resort, Whistler has plenty of heart-pumping action and well as being an area of stunning beauty all year round.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 12: Vancouver

Return to Vancouver along the Sea-to-Sky Highway, and stop by Stanley Park, a 4,000-hectare green wonderland. See the authentic totem poles erected in the 1920s and try some moreish maple sugar candies. Stop by Prospect Point, a scenic lookout where you gaze out at spectacular views of Lion’s Gate Bridge, North Vancouver and West Vancouver – the perfect ending to the perfect trip!

Travel onto Vancouver where your tour finishes at approximately 17:00. Vancouver is a vibrant metropolis and there is plenty to occupy your time, we recommend you extend your stay to enjoy this buzzing city.
