ITINERARY
Day 1: Arrive in Calgary, AB

Welcome to Calgary, the largest city in the western Canadian province of Alberta. While you are here to experience the bucket list adventure experience of travelling through the breath-taking Canadian Rockies, take some time to explore the award-winning architectural masterpiece of Calgary’s Public Library, walk along the scenic Bow Valley River pathways and experience the buzz of downtown Stephen Avenue with its stores and restaurants.
Overnight: Calgary
Day 2: Calgary to Banff, AB

This morning we drive through the heart of Calgary and see some of the highlights including Calgary Tower, the Stampede Park and Princess Park area of the riverfront before we make our way past Canada Olympic Park and then through the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. On our way West, we’ll drive through the scenic town of Canmore and experience Dog Sledding! We will meet our team of dogs, travel through the snow-capped mountains surrounded by beautiful landscapes, and then enjoy some time with the animals, while warming up with some hot chocolate and cookies. Following our Dog Sledding adventure, we then continue to Banff, at the centre of Canada’s very first National Park. Nestled high in the Canadian Rockies, the town of Banff is located within the Banff National Park. Once “Siding 29” on the Canadian Pacific Railway, the town of Banff was intended to be a tourist town from its very inception. The park’s first superintendent, George Stewart, even oriented the town’s first street so that it offered the best possible view of Cascade Mountain. With easy access to pristine wilderness, outdoor adventures, jaw-dropping landscape, and a vibrant history, there are many places to visit in Banff and Lake Louise. After checking into our hotel, the evening is yours to browse through Banff village centre.
Overnight: Banff
Meals: Breakfast
Day 3: Banff, AB

The town of Banff is a spirited place and in every direction you are surrounded by strikingly beautiful and rugged mountains that seem to burst straight out of the ground including Mount Rundle, Sulphur Mountain, Mount Norquay, and Cascade Mountain. The town site of Banff covers almost 4 km2 at an elevation of 1,383 meters (4,537 feet), making it the highest town in Canada. You may even see a herd of elk wandering down the main street in the early morning. The lively streets of downtown are lined with top-class restaurants, bars, and shops, as well as a vibrant range of art galleries and museums. We will explore Banff and area on a sightseeing tour and finish with a scenic ride on the gondola up Sulphur Mountain for an unparalleled view of the mountains and valley below.
Overnight: Banff
Meals: Breakfast
Day 4: Johnston Canyon Ice Walk and Lake Louise

This morning we will drive along the famous Bow Valley Parkway, where wildlife sightings of caribou, elk, and occasionally, bears, are common so keep your eyes and cameras handy. We will stop at Johnston Canyon for a self-guided ice walk through the deep rugged canyon with several frozen waterfalls. We continue our drive to Lake Louise, a jewel of the Rockies surrounded by glistening glaciers and towering snow-capped mountain peaks. Late in the day, with the glowing sun dropping behind Mount Victoria, you have likely never seen anything so dramatically beautiful. We will take some time here to enjoy the surrounding sights and explore at our leisure before returning to Banff.
Overnight: Banff
Meals: Breakfast
Day 5: Banff to Calgary, AB

Our epic Rocky Mountain journey comes to an end this morning as we depart with memories of the stunning landscapes that we have passed through and the hospitality of the people who call this home. We will drive back to Calgary today to begin the journey home.
