 Itinerary
Day 1  Arrive in Calgary
Welcome to one of North America’s most rugged and beautiful cities, Calgary. Known for its cowboys and spectacular beauty, Calgary was brought to the world’s attention during the 1988 Winter Olympics. Meet your Tour Manager in the hotel lobby at 6:00 p.m. for dining suggestions.
Day 2  Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park
Today, travel south from Calgary to Waterton Lakes National Park. Embark on a boat cruise of Waterton Lakes, with its deep scenic bays, sheer vertical mountains and beautiful wilderness surroundings. In the afternoon, visit the Prince of Wales Hotel, one of the most photographed hotels in the world and the setting for your included lunch before arriving at scenic East Glacier. Meals: B, L
Day 3  Glacier National Park
Welcome to Glacier National Park! Founded in 1910, the park is a land of mountain ranges carved by prehistoric ice rivers. The vistas seen from Going-to-the-Sun Road are breathtaking and a photographers paradise. The best way to travel is via the Red Buses whose drivers are known as “Jammers.” The antique red buses are both a symbol of the park and a reminder of a time when adventurous travel was done with style. The name “jammer” is carried over from the days when the buses had standard transmissions and the drivers could be heard “jamming” the gears as they drove up and down the rugged mountainous highway. Journey from East Glacier to Rising Sun and then across to Lake McDonald on what has been named one of the world’s top 100 most scenic drives. Meals: B, D
Day 4  Travel to Banff National Park
Traveling back across the border, arrive in Canada’s first National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site, Banff for a two-night stay. Meals: B, D
Day 5  Banff Sightseeing
In Banff, see Bow Falls and Tunnel Mountain. Also take a gondola ride in enclosed cars to the peak of Sulphur Mountain for a spectacular panoramic view of the village and valley below. Later, travel to beautiful Chateau Lake Louise where majestic mountains soaring skyward are reflected in the vibrant blues of the glacier-fed Lake Louise. The remainder of the day is free to explore this quaint village, full of wonderful shops and charming boutiques. Meal: B
Day 6  Athabasca Glacier Snocoach Ride and Glacier Skywalk
Trade in your motorcoach for a “snocoach” and venture on to North America’s largest glacier, the Columbia Icefield’s Athabasca Glacier. You will travel in a specially designed vehicle to the middle of the glacier, as your driver points out interesting geological features. At the icefall below the glacier headwall, you will step out onto ice formed from snow which fell as long as 400 years ago. Then, take a walk on the incredible Glacier Skywalk, a glass-floored observation platform perched 918 feet above spectacular glacier-formed valleys and rushing waterfalls. Later, arrive in the mountain town of Jasper. Meals: B, D
Day 7  Maligne Lake Cruise
Today, in spite of its highways and railroad, Jasper National Park looks very much like it did when David Thompson, Canada's great fur-tradeera explorer, first saw it. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery of Jasper National Park as you cruise Maligne Lake with its unparalleled vistas. Learn of the local history, geology, wildlife and glaciology of Maligne Lake and Jasper National Park as some of the most spectacular scenery in the Rockies drifts past your window. Watch moose lazily wander the shoreline and look for other wildlife that are native to the area. In the afternoon, return to Jasper in plenty of time for exploring the city. Meal: B
Day 8  Travel the Icefields Parkway
Aboard your motorcoach, you’ll travel along one of the world's most spectacular mountain highways, the Icefields Parkway. Unsurpassed scenery paralleling the Great Divide in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, the Columbia Icefields, Bow and Crowfoot Glaciers, Athabasca Falls and Peyto Lake, come into view. See snow-capped mountains reflected in the turquoise waters of Moraine Lake and watch for black bear, moose and caribou along the way. Meals: B, D
