Tour Overview
Our 10 day escorted tour of the Canadian Rockies is truly magical - seeing the snow and ice bringing this spectacular landscape to life. Our escorted tour starts in Calgary, and after a restful day to recharge post flight, we head to the UNESCO listed Banff National Park. Here the Banff Gondola cable car ride takes you to the top of Sulphur Mountain for unrivalled views of Banff - a sight that will astound and delight. You'll also be taken on a horse-drawn sleigh ride followed by a relaxing visit to Banff's natural hot springs. The adventure continues with a journey to Jaspar National Park followed by a trip to the picture perfect Lake Louise - a sight made all the more perfect by our hotel for that part of the trip - staying at the famous Fairmount Chateau Lake Louise Hotel, which is situated right on the shore of the lake itself. We head back to Calgary for the flight home - but not before a trip to the Canada Olympic Park and plenty of time to sight see in this cosmopolitan city.

Itinerary

Day 1 UK - Calgary

Make you own way to the airport or be collected by our Private Chauffeur (if you've pre-booked) for your flight to Calgary and on arrival we'll transfer you to your downtown hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to spend at leisure.

Day 2 Banff

This morning, we'll drive through the spectacular snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains to Banff, and when we arrive, we'll head out straight away to explore UNESCO-listed Banff National Park. Nestled in the heart of the Rockies, this incredible wilderness is home to snowy mountains, glistening glaciers and ice-covered lakes. You'll see vast swathes of pine forest, where wolves, elk and deer roam free, so keep your eyes peeled. Other scenic highlights are the Hoodoos of Bow Valley, imposing spires of rock carved by wind and water, and the sensational views at Surprise Corner. You'll then take a ride on the Banff Gondola. This cable car takes you to the top of Sulphur Mountain for unrivalled views of Banff and six scenic mountain ranges.

The rest of the day is yours to do as you please. Perhaps you'll decide to take advantage of your hotel's facilities or maybe take a stroll around Banff. There's a great selection of bars and restaurants just a short walk away, where a warm welcome and possibly a roaring fire await.​

Meals included: B

Day 3 Banff

There can be no better way to travel through a snowy landscape than on a horse-drawn sleigh, and that's the plan today. You'll be treated to magnificent views as you listen to the jingle of sleigh bells on this unforgettable journey.  Later, you can warm up – and soak up some history – when you visit Banff's natural hot springs. They're located in an historic spa and bathhouse but with lovely modern amenities. As you relax in the soothing hot waters of a mountain spring, you can take in views of snow-covered peaks in every direction.​

Meals included: B

Day 4 Banff - Jasper

You can sit back and take in more stunning scenery today as we journey by road to Jasper, a former railroad town. At this time of year its national park is described as a Christmas card come to life, with its snow-dusted evergreens and frozen waterfalls. You'll get to see it for yourself tomorrow. But for now, just relax and enjoy your hotel's facilities, or head into town to one of its many cosy bars or restaurants.​

Meals included: B

Day 5 Jasper

Jasper National Park has been deemed by the World Heritage Committee to be among the most significant sights on earth. Today's the day that you get to explore for yourself and see what all the fuss is about! It is home to abundant wildlife, shimmering glaciers, crystal-clear lakes, thundering waterfalls and evergreen forests. And all this is surrounded by rugged snow-capped mountain peaks. We'll take all these wonderful sights in before you have the option to join a thrilling winter adventure on our optional excursion. In the company of a Local Guide you'll head off on an icewalk in the Maligne Canyon. As we head to the bottom of this deep gorge, we'll see frozen waterfalls, ice caves and incredible ice formations. You'll also learn about the spectacular landscape of the Maligne Valley and hear tales about the mysterious 'disappearing' Medicine Lake. This evening we'll gather around an open fire to make S'mores, a sweet treat made from marshmallows, chocolate and biscuits, served with mulled wine.

Day 6 Jasper - Lake Louise

Today we travel to picture-perfect Lake Louise, said by many to be one of the most beautiful places in Canada.

This evening is yours to enjoy everything this luxury resort has to offer.​

Meals included: B

Day 7 Lake Louise - at Leisure

How you spend today is entirely up to you. You might choose to stay exactly where you are and revel in your hotel's excellent facilities and wonderful surroundings. Another way to spend some time is on an amazing optional excursion which takes you on a snowshoeing tour of Lake Louise. This ancient and efficient mode of transport simply involves wearing specially designed snowshoes which distribute your weight over a larger area. This allows you to walk on the snow with ease, without sinking into it. Tonight we've a real treat in store , as we settle down by an outdoor fire-pit to enjoy a drink together.​
