HIDE FULL ITINERARY

Day 1 UK/Montreal

Today you'll fly to Montreal. On arrival we will transfer you to your hotel for a two-night stay.

Day 2 Quebec City

​Spend today exploring Montreal at your leisure or enjoy an optional full-day tour of Quebec City. It stands on the mighty St Lawrence River, and we will see highlights including the picturesque Old Town, the Cathedral, Château Frontenac and the Plains of Abraham battle site. You'll also be able to admire views of the Laurentian Hills and Mont St-Anne from the Dufferin Terrace.

Day 3 Montreal & Ottawa

Discover the highlights of Montreal on a sightseeing tour. Located in the French-speaking province of Quebec, Canada's second city boasts a wealth of 17th century buildings, beautiful gardens, bustling street markets and open-air cafés. It's most iconic site is probably the magnificent Notre-Dame Cathedral.Later we are going to head to the country's capital, Ottawa and get our bearings on a city tour. Highlights here include the National War Memorial, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Confederation Square, the grounds of Parliament Hill, the Rideau Canal and ByWard Market.

Day 4 Rockport & Toronto

On our way to Toronto today, we're going to make a stop at Rockport, gateway to the 1000 Islands. We will discover their beauty from the water on a sightseeing cruise. Later we'll arrive in Toronto, our base for the next three nights. 

Day 5 Toronto

You're going to discover the best of Toronto on a short city tour. Once you have your bearings you will be keen to explore further and you can do so at leisure this afternoon. The city's skyline is dominated by the 1,815ft CN Tower and the views from the top are simply incredible.

Day 6 Niagara Falls

Your day begins with a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake, often described as Ontario's loveliest town. Then we're going to head to one of the greatest sights in the New World, the mighty Niagara Falls. You'll have plenty of time to explore and can choose how you want to view the thundering waters. One option is to take a boat ride, or perhaps you'll enjoy a unique view from below and behind, at the 'Journey Behind the Falls' attraction.

Day 7 Banff

Today you're bound for Banff in the Rocky Mountains. We'll fly to Calgary and then continue our journey by road. We'll get our bearings on a short orientation tour when we arrive.

Day 8 Banff

Stunning vistas appear at every turn in Banff National Park and you'll be keen to get out and explore. Snow-capped mountains, crystal-clear lakes, sparkling streams and swathes of forest are just some of the attractions, and the wildlife is equally as impressive. Look out for black and grizzly bears, wolves, elk and deer on land, then keep your eyes peeled for eagles, hawks and ospreys in the sky. There's plenty to see and do in Banff and lots of optional excursions to choose from. How about a cable car ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain or a helicopter flight over the Rockies.

Day 9 Lake Louise

Today we are going to Lake Louise, a glacial, jade-green lake high in the mountains. It is surrounded on all sides by towering peaks and is described as one of Canada's most beautiful locations.

Day 10 Kelowna

We'll travel through the Rockies, via Revelstoke and Vernon to Kelowna. Situated in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, this will be our base for the night.

Our day begins with a photo stop at the beautiful Okanagan Lake before leaving Kelowna, and travelling on our scenic journey towards Vancouver. 

Day 12 Vancouver

You can spend today just as you wish. If you'd like to join an optional excursion, come with us to Vancouver's North Shore.​

Day 14 Victoria, Vancouver Island

We're heading away from the mainland today, to spend two nights in Victoria on Vancouver Island, which we reach by ferry. On arrival, we'll head off on a sightseeing tour of this city, which is often said to resemble an old English town. Later we will head to the famous Butchart Gardens, considered to be one of the most spectacular floral show gardens in the world.​

Day 15 Victoria, Vancouver Island

You can soak up Victoria's old world charm at your own pace today as you explore at leisure. As an alternative, you could choose to join an optional whale-watching excursion. The waters here are home to an array of marine mammals, so this promises to be an experience to remember.​

You will see the old town, the Cathedral, the giant star shaped Citadelle and much, much more.

Full Day - Moderate Walking - Must See

ADD TO TOUR AT CHECKOUT

Canada - Vancouver - North Shore

FROM £120.00

Appreciate the spectacular views in a cable car to the top of Grouse Mountain, the ‘Peak of Vancouver’, where there is also plenty to do. In summer months the city’s winter ski area is transformed into a summer activity centre. Visit the mountain’s two resident grizzly bears - Grinder and Cooler, perhaps watch the entertaining Lumberjack Show or a birds in motion demonstration. From the beginning of October onwards, the summer activities break as the resort prepares for the Winter season, the summit is still worth a visit and the Theatre in the Sky, restaurants, cafes and shop remain open.

We also take the opportunity to visit Vancouver’s oldest tourist attraction - the Capilano Suspension Bridge. The bridge stretches 450ft across and 230ft above Capilano River. Cross to the other side and there’s an eco-friendly walk in the treetops waiting for you to conquer. There is also a Spectacular Cliff Side Walk, looking down onto the Capilano River as you wind your way through the rain forest, as well as the full history and photo’s on display.

This is a private tour for you group escorted by your tour manager and includes all transportation and entrances to both attractions.
