Rockies West Mini-Safari: Leg 2

8 days  ·  Banff, AB → Vancouver, BC  ·  Easy

This sightseeing tour of Canada travels from Banff, Alberta to Vancouver BC by SUV/ Van. You will experience an ideal mix of iconic Rocky Mountain sights combined with explorations that take you off-the-beaten path into provincial and national parks.

Tour Summary

This active holiday of the Rocky Mountains and BC starts in Banff by exploring the Rocky Mountains before crossing into BC and winding its way down to the west coast.  Highlights of this small group trip include Banff, Chateau Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, the Icefields Parkway, Jasper, Helmcken Falls and Whistler, BC.

We explore four parks including Banff National Park, Jasper National Park, Mt. Robson Provincial Park and Wells Gray Provincial Park. Examples of walks and hikes include Johnston Canyon, the Berg Lake Trail, Pyramid Lake and the Trail of Six Bridges. As always, the emphasis is on easy walking and hiking, with walks averaging 20 minutes to an hour. Our guests love taking secondary roads to isolated towns and this tour won’t disappoint - Lillooet is one of our personal favourites. From here we take a backroad through the Coastal Mountains to Whistler.
