Lets explore the Canadian Rockies with this amazing 10 night itinerary that takes us from Vancouver to Calgary. We'll spend 2 nights in Vancouver, 2 nights in Victoria (Vancouver Island), 3 nights in Jasper, 3 nights in Banff, and depart for home via Calgary.

Our first stop on our Canada adventure is the coastal seaport city of Vancouver with its spectacular vistas. Vancouver is a bustling west coast seaport in British Columbia, is among Canada’s densest, most ethnically diverse cities. A popular filming location, it’s surrounded by mountains, and also has thriving art, theatre and music scenes. Majestic mountains, sparkling ocean, rainforests and beautiful foliage throughout all four seasons make Vancouver one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Canadians are known for our friendly nature, and Vancouver's citizens take great pride in our welcoming, clean, safe streets - day or night, all year round.Our hotel is perfectly located to enjoy some walking tours.


We'll visit Gastown, the city's oldest neighborhood and designated a National Historical Site in 2009. Gastown grew from a single tavern founded by John 'Gassy Jack' Deighton back in 1867. Today, the district retains its historic charm and independent spirit and it's just a 15 minute walk from our hotel. We'll also visit Chinatown, one of the largest China towns in the world and one of Vancouver's few distinct cultural historic neighborhoods, The distinct character of buildings are preserved by a heritage designation with murals and window art telling the stories of early Chinese pioneers. We'll venture to Stanley Park, ranking one of the top 25 parks in the world on Tripadvisor. We'll explore the 400-hectare natural West Coast rainforest and enjoy scenic views of water, mountains, sky, and majestic trees along Stanley Park's famous Seawall. You can rent a bike and enjoy the one hour loop around the Stanley Park seawall. We'll have 2 nights in Vancouver to enjoy the sites and activities.

Then we will ferry to Victoria from Vancouver for 2 nights. Victoria is a relaxed, vibrant city on the edge of an island packed with spectacular natural scenery. It has a bit of everything – fascinating history and culture, parks, great food and drink. Add in a temperate climate, with sunny spring days during our visit, and a compact and walkable city centre and you’ve got a perfect 2-day destination. Enroute to hotel, visit the world-famous Butchart Gardens. Here, you'll see one of the world's greatest floral displays in the amazing 55 magnificent acres of flowers and show gardens, including the Japanese, Italian, and Rose gardens. Our hotel is perfectly situated in the harbor area where we'll be able to walk to a number of attractions.

The next day will be a free day in Victoria. You can join me for a walk along the waterfront to Fisherman’s Wharf with rows of colourful floating homes mixed with food stalls, fishing boats and the occasional friendly seal. On one side are boats gliding past and seaplanes above coming in to land and on the other are smart waterside apartments and hotels. From Fisherman’s Wharf we'll take the water route back to the inner harbour on board one of the Victoria Harbour Ferries. Old Town Victoria's cobblestone streets and alleys are best explored car-free, so taking a walk or ride a bike in the historic center is the way to go.. Alternately you can opt for a hop on- hop off sightseeing bus to enjoy other parts of Victoria or take high tea at the famous Fairmont Empress Hotel, just a short walk from our hotel.

After 2 nights in Victoria, we will ferry back to Vancouver and fly to Edmonton where we will bus to Jasper National Park for 3 nights. Our hotel there is the phenomenal Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge.

The largest of Canada's Rocky Mountain parks, Jasper is famous for its wildlife, such as elk, moose, deer, coyotes, grizzly bears and mountain lions, as well as smaller mammals and birds. We will offer a full day tour included in this package that will cover the highlights of Jasper National Park. We'll see Pyramid Lake area which offers some amazing sights and great chances to see the wildlife of the Canadian Rockies. The beauty of this area will leave you breathless! We'll visit Medicine Lake, which exists only during the summer months when melting glaciers bring water into the valley. See the tranquil blue color of this glacier formed and fed lake during this calming wilderness experience. We will visit the incredibly beautiful Maligne Lake and have the option to take a boat cruise to the world-famous Spirit Island. The road to Maligne Lake has some of the best wildlife viewing in the Canadian Rockies. Look for mountain goat, moose, elk, bear, bighorn sheep, caribou and bald eagles. We'll have time to walk along the canyon's trails with breathtaking views of waterfalls and unusual rock formations.

We'll be working on putting together some optional tours for our 2nd day here. There are several river rafting tours that sound beautiful and exciting as well as taking a ride on the Jasper SkyTram is highly recommended, as it provides stunning views over the township and surrounding mountains. The Jasper Tramway brings you up to an elevation of 2285 meters (7496 feet). There are also hiking options to bring you to the top of the mountain where the view is awe inspiring. Another option is a visit to Miette Hot Springs, the hottest in the Canadian Rockies, actually cooled to 39 degree Celsius (102 degrees Fahrenheit).

Our final stop on this magnificent journey to the Canadian rockies is Banff National Park, where we'll spend 3 days enjoying some of the country's most picturesque scenery. Nestled in the very heart of the magnificent Canadian Rockies, the snow-capped mountains, glistening glaciers and sweeping panoramas are just one part of the allure of Banff. We'll enjoy the unparalleled mountain scenery as we explore wondrous Banff National Park, named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On our way to Banff we'll stop to visit the massive Athabasca Glacier (weather permitting) and tour the Columbia Icefield. We'll learn about the formation of glaciers, the interesting geological features of the area and step out onto the surface of the powerful ancient ice.

We'll take two full day tours in Banff (included in the package) where we'll begin at magnificent Lake Louise, a symbol of the quintessential Canadian mountain scene. Known for its sparkling blue waters, and nestled at the base of impressive Victoria Glacier, this area is one of the most picturesque of Banff National Park. Next we'll ascend by gondola to the summit of Sulphur Mountain experiencing stunning views at every turn of six mountain ranges and the village below. Truly an exhilarating experience!

The next day we'll travel northwest through the lush Kananaskis Valley (road permitting), a recreational playground and gateway to the national parks. We'll enjoy a very scenic drive to Lake Minnewanka ("Water of the Spirits"), a gorgeous glacial lake in the eastern area of Banff. Then, view freshwater Two Jack Lake, a mecca for anglers from around the world, en route to cascading Bow Falls in a valley eroded by glacier activity. We'll also visit the Cave and Basin National Historic Site to experience the birthplace of Canada's national parks and learn about the natural and cultural history of the mountains. Bring your swimsuit to bathe in the hot water that seeps from the rocks.

We'll have a relaxing morning on the 28th to enjoy other optional activities before heading to Calgary for our early evening flight.

This is a completely custom package that you won't find anywhere else. We were hoping to keep the cost of this trip down but the hotels and buses were very expensive. Check the rate for the Fairmont Jasper Lodge and you will find $655 with taxes per night! But still, for a 10-night trip, with air, at these very nice hotels, is not bad and certainly better than you will find offered by any other tour operator.

This trip promises to be another amazing experience with some of the most beautiful and captivating scenic wonders in the world.
