Itinerary / more information

  • Day 1 - Kick Start Your Journey In Calgary Tip your Stetson to Canada's 'Cowboy Country', kick-starting your adventure through the inimitable Rockies in Calgary. This evening, gather at your hotel joining your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception.
  • Day 2 - Uncloak The Ethereal Canadian Rockies Embark on a spiritual encounter with the Canadian Rockies, admiring the ethereal beauty of Lake Louise, the surrounding summits and Victoria Glacier, before we continue along the Icefields Parkway. Skirt the craggy peaks, waterfalls and luminous glacial lakes keeping an eye out for bears, elk and mountain goats as you make your way through the wilderness to Jasper.
  • Day 3 - Enjoy The Wonders Of Jasper National Park Soak up pristine natural surroundings enjoying a morning at leisure. Then venture to Maligne Lake and indulge in a Regional Lunch with wine at the Maligne Lake Chalet, a rustic log building situated on a rise of land offering magnificent views of beautiful Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park. Take to the aqua waters of Maligne Lake later this afternoon (seasonal), admiring views of its three glaciers and Spirit Island, named by the Stoney Nation indigenous people for the experiences their ancestors had at this place centuries ago. It's a tiny grove of trees set in pristine nature separated from the mainland by an isthmus. Spirit Island becomes a true island for a few short days during the summer. Then enjoy the dramatic views as you take a guided walk to Maligne Canyon.
  • Day 4 - Take An Excursion To The Athabasca Glacier Your adventure begins with a ride onto the Athabasca Glacier in an all-terrain Ice Explorer--a massive vehicle specially designed for glacier travel. On this thrilling trip, an experienced driver-guide will share a wealth of fascinating information about glaciers and their impact on our environment. Take a sip of ice-cold glacier water and admire the surrounding snowcapped panorama before continuing your journey to the alpine village of Banff. Enjoy a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER(R) Experience as we meet a Cree Guide who will give some insight on how Buffalo were so important to survival, the interconnected relationship we have and the teachings of the Buffalo around the sacred contract we hold and how we may have become part of that sacred contract. Tonight, enjoy dinner with your fellow travellers.
  • Day 5 - Shoot Your Shot In Canmore Learn the art of playing the puck like a pro when you meet a real Canadian hockey player in Canmore. Dive into Culture and embrace Canada's national sport, learning the secrets and superstitions of hockey players as a professional coach walks you through a day in the life of a player. Go inside the players' dressing room and put on the full hockey gear. Grab your stick and it's off onto the ice where you'll soon find out whether you are a lefty or righty and learn how to score the big goal. A sightseeing excursion around Banff reveals the exquisite natural beauty of the area. Admire the classic viewpoint of Surprise Corner, spectacular Bow Falls, and the hoodoo rock formations.
  • Day 6 - Breathe Fresh Air In Banff Join your Travel Director for an optional excursion in the morning to explore the jewels of the Rockies, and head to Yoho National Park and Moraine Lake in the Valley of Ten Peaks.
