Your Canada travel itinerary:
Day 1: Calgary
Check out the city’s lively food scene, or take a relaxing stroll along the riverside, to get your adventure started. The following morning, take a walking tour around the city centre highlights, including Fort Calgary and the various museums.
Days 2 - 3: Banff
Get set for world-class skiing, natural hot springs, main-street shopping and hikes through one of the world’s oldest national parks in beautiful Banff, nestled in the mountains and surrounded by spectacular scenery. Do not forget your camera as you head off on a mountains, lakes & waterfalls day tour, including the twinkling blue expanse of Lake Louise. Then, in the evening, set off on a wildlife safari in search of deer, bears and wolves. Plenty of outdoor activities are on offer here too – in winter, why not try tubing and ice skating, while in summer, have a crack at climbing or biking.
Days 5 - 7: Jasper
Continue on to Jasper and let the SkyTram whisk you up to 2277 metres for a spectacular view of the Rockies. Sail the serene waters of sapphire blue Maligne Lake to peaceful Spirit Island and the view that’s graced a thousand postcards. Absorb the unspoilt nature of Jasper National Park, dotted with shimmering glaciers, abundant wildlife, crystal-clear lakes, thundering waterfalls, deep canyons and evergreen forest. Jasper is located 180 picturesque miles north of Banff at the end of Alberta’s Icefields Parkway, one of the world’s most breath-taking drives.
Day 8: Sun Peaks
Further West, Sun Peaks is a great spot for downhill and cross country skiing as well as snowboarding in winter. For non-skiers, dogsledding or snowshoeing are fun alternatives that still allow you to soak up the twinkling landscapes. In summer it’s all about the hiking, golfing and mountain biking, although canoeing and kayaking on the lakes and rivers is a popular way to see the area too. Or perhaps just tee off in what has to be one of the most spectacularly situated golf courses in the world.
Days 9 - 10: Whistler
Take the longest and highest lift in the world for an unparalleled view of the snow-covered mountain peaks. Suspended 436 metres above the ground, let the Peak2Peak gondola whisk you between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, taking in the far-reaching mountaintop views along the way. The area is popular with adventure enthusiasts who come for its downhill and cross-country mountain bike trails, along with rock climbing at the nearby town of Squamish. Plus there’s always a cosy fireside pub or a sunny patio bar to chill out and relax in after a hard day’s adventuring.
Days 11 - 13: Vancouver
Finish your trip in vivacious Vancouver, a city which is voted Most Liveable City in North America so often that it just doesn’t notice any more. In town, walk along the waterfront or hop over to foodie Granville Island for art and fresh farmers’ markets. Outside the city, head to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and cross the famous Capilano Suspension Bridge, swinging 70 metres above the Capilano River. Take a hike along the precarious Cliffwalk and get a squirrel’s eye view from the Treetops walk. If you’re here at Christmas, gaze in wonder as the whole park is lit up by thousands of twinkling fairy lights –magical!
Days 14 - 15:
Depart Vancouver and return to the UK.
