Full Itinerary

Day 1: UK - Calgary

After arrival at Calgary International Airport you will be transferred privately to your hotel. Spend the rest of your first day at leisure, perhaps explore the Eau Claire Market, take a ride up the Calgary Tower, and enjoy one of Calgary’s wonderful restaurants. Your Tour Director will be in contact with you in the late afternoon to discuss joining your tour the next morning.

Day 2: Calgary – Banff National Park

Begin your day with a hearty Canadian breakfast, before joining your fellow travellers for a tour of Calgary. You’ll then travel west on the Trans-Canada Highway into the rolling foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The majestic peaks of the Rockies will soon fill the sky as you approach the charming town of Banff, your home for tonight. 
Accommodation: Mount Royal Hotel or Banff Aspen Lodge


Day 3: Banff National Park

After another lovely Canadian breakfast, you will enjoy a tour of the Banff region. The area became Canada’s first national park in 1885 to protect its natural hot springs. You’ll have the option to take a helicopter sightseeing tour over the eastern ranges or a gondola ride to the Sulphur Mountain – so be sure to bring your camera (both at own expense)! The rest of the day is at leisure to explore the surrounding area, possibly taking a stroll along Banff Avenue.

Accommodation: Mount Royal Hotel or Banff Aspen Lodge


Day 4: Banff National Park – Jasper National Park

This morning, after breakfast, you will head on a journey through Banff and Jasper National Parks that will prove to be one of the highlights of your trip. Shortly after leaving Banff, you’ll visit stunning Lake Louise, one of the most photographed lakes in Canada. You’ll then travel north on the famed Icefields Parkway, through rugged wilderness. At the Columbia Icefield, board a specially constructed Ice Explorer vehicle to ride on the surface of the ancient Athabasca Glacier. Before arriving at tonight’s destination, Jasper National Park, you will have the opportunity to go on an optional raft trip along the Athabasca River (own expense). 

Accommodation: Lobstick Lodge (or similar)


Day 5: Jasper National Park – Kamloops

Before leaving Jasper National Park this morning, you can take part in an optional Spirit Island Cruise on Maligne Lake, the most picturesque and largest glacier-fed lake in the park; or perhaps take a motorcycle tour of Jasper, riding in the comfortable sidecar providing unmatched views of the forests and mountains (both at own expense). You’ll then travel west along the Yellowhead Highway and into the heart of British Columbia, where breathtaking, unspoilt views await. The route to Kamloops takes you along the Thompson River, before arriving there for your overnight stay. 

Accommodation: The Thomson Hotel & Conference Center Kamloops (or similar)


Day 6: Kamloops – Whistler

Expect a day of dramatic scenery changes, as you travel through ranch lands and head for coastal mountains. You’ll journey along the Duffey Lake Road and have the opportunity to take a Floatplane Sightseeing Tour over Garibaldi Park (own expense), providing an inspiring view of a natural preserve of volcanic peaks, alpine lakes and meadows. Enjoy the rest of your day at leisure in Whistler, where you will stay tonight.

Accommodation: Delta Hotels by Marriott Whistler Village Suites (or similar)


Day 7: Whistler – Victoria 

Today, travel south through the spectacular scenery of the Sea-to-Sky Highway. You will visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge, where you can cross the impressive 450ft-long bridge over a spectacular canyon. Then, from Horseshoe Bay, you’ll cruise by ferry across the Strait of Georgia to Vancouver Island and continue by coach to Victoria, British Columbia’s capital city. After arriving in Victoria, embark on a city tour of this former British enclave.

Accommodation: Coast Victoria Hotel & Marina by APA (or similar)


Day 8: Victoria

Today, you’ll explore quaint Victoria after breakfast. You will love the tour of the Butchart Gardens, one of the world’s great floral displays, set in a reclaimed stone quarry. Perhaps take part in an optional Floatplane Sightseeing Tour over downtown Victoria and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, or head on an optional whale-watching excursion, where you can try and spot magnificent orcas and the abundance of marine wildlife (both at own expense). The remainder of the day is free to explore the city at your leisure. 

Accommodation: Coast Victoria Hotel & Marina by APA (or similar)


Day 9:  Victoria – Vancouver
After breakfast, you’ll continue through the region of the Gulf Islands to the ocean-side city of Vancouver. Upon arrival in Vancouver, enjoy an all-encompassing city tour that takes you to iconic sights, including Stanley Park, English Bay, Chinatown, and much more. The remainder of the day is free for exploration or relaxation, and this evening you will be treated to a wonderful farewell dinner before spending the night in Vancouver.

Accommodation: Sutton Place Vancouver (or similar)


Days 10-11: Vancouver 

Your tour comes to an end this morning, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to go home just yet. After some sad farewells to the rest of the tour group, you have an additional two nights in the vibrant city of Vancouver. The rest of your time here is at leisure, so explore the sights as you wish, or perhaps get in some last-minute shopping.
