Tour Overview
Canada’s awe-inspiring Rocky Mountains and the stunning city of Vancouver combine to fill this tour with scenic wonders. Your adventure begins in Banff, with a ride of the Banff Gondola for unrivalled views. Explore the UNESCO-listed National Park in the heart of the Rockies, an incredible wilderness of glistening glaciers, ice-covered lakes and swathes of pine forest where wolves, elk and deer roam. Visit the glacial, jade-green waters of Lake Louise, said to be one of the most beautiful places in Canada, then head to Jasper to explore the world-renowned Jasper National park, home to abundant wildlife, thundering waterfalls and Maligne Lake. You’ll then journey to Kamloops in British Columbia, where you’ll embark a Rockies river safari through Grizzly Bear Valley on the lookout for, you guessed it, grizzly bears! There’s a chance to go whale-watching in Victoria, before visiting Vancouver, where highlights include Gastown, Stanley Park and the beautiful harbour.

Vancouver - North Shore

Vancouver - North Shore

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.
