Tour Overview

The western provinces of Alberta and British Columbia are draped in spectacular natural riches. On this 14-day Canadian Rockies tour, you’ll twist along the highs and lows of the vast landscape through sweeping scenery, mighty mountains, deep forests and pristine lakes and rivers. We contrast the natural landscapes with city stays, too, spending time in Vancouver and Victoria. You’ll soon realise it was more than the promise of gold that tempted settlers here during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s…

Highlights

  • iconSeeing glacier-fed lakes ringed by the high peaks of Banff National Park.
  • icon Their fantastic turquoise hue - caused by the levels of rock flour in the water - almost looks unreal.
