Join us for a journey into the Canadian Rockies, one of the world's most majestic wonderlands. Discover this dramatic landscape and enjoy a scenic journey from Whistler to Vancouver on the Sea to Sky Highway. Explore Lake Louise, Jasper and Banff, and experience the 'Wild West' at the world-famous Calgary Stampede.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Vancouver to enjoy a three-night stay on the edge of the Pacific Rim, overlooking the Georgia Strait and backed by the snow-capped Coast Mountains.

Day Two

Discover Vancouver on today's optional guided city tour - see restored Gastown, colourful Chinatown, and Burrard Inlet waterfront, then cross over the Lion's Gate Bridge into 'North Van'. Take a cable car to the summit of breathtaking Grouse Mountain, and brave the famous Capilano Suspension Bridge over a vertiginous gorge.

Day Three

Spend another day at leisure in Vancouver, or join today's optional excursion to beautiful Vancouver Island and the unashamedly 'British' provincial capital of British Columbia, charming Victoria. Explore the vast Parliament Buildings and grand Empress Hotel, and visit the world-famous Butchart Gardens, boasting over a million plants including several hundred floral species.

Day Four

Travel through the coastal ranges, and along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway, to the famous mountain resort of Whistler, for a one-night stay. Spend the afternoon exploring the delights of this world-class winter sports and summer hiking resort.

Day Five

Drive through beautiful mountain scenery to the resort of Sun Peaks, a modern alpine village high in the BC interior.

Day Six

Don't miss today's included cruise through 'Grizzly Bear Valley' where sightings of grizzly and black bears are almost guaranteed from the boat. Later, we'll continue our tour. We'll head past towering Mount Robson, the Rockies' highest peak, and through beautiful scenery, to Jasper, at the gateway to scenic Jasper National Park, where you'll stay for two nights.

Day Seven

Join today's optional excursion, which will include a ride on the historic Jasper Tramway - Canada's longest - to the scenic heights above, and a journey to the stunning Medicine and Maligne Lakes, in their spectacular settings, as well as beautiful Maligne Canyon.

Day Eight

Today you'll travel along the renowned Icefields Parkway, calling at beautiful Lake Louise, where stunning turquoise waters are set against the awesome backdrop of Victoria Glacier. You'll continue on to Banff, the delightful, bustling 'capital' of the Rockies, with its many shops and surrounding mountain scenery.

Day Nine

Take the opportunity to join an optional Banff sightseeing tour, which includes a cable-car ride to the summit of Sulphur Mountain and a trip to scenic Surprise Corner viewpoint overlooking the famous Banff Springs Hotel. Also today, perhaps enjoy an optional Rockies helicopter ride over the mountains.

Day 10

Spend a morning at leisure in Banff before you travel to the mountain resort of Kananaskis for a three-night stay.

Day 11

Visit the Stampede showground in Calgary. You'll have plenty of time to experience this iconic outdoor event and soak up the fantastic atmosphere as you watch authentic rodeos, chuck-wagon races and grandstand shows.

Day 12

Today you'll return to the Stampede showground for another taste of the Wild West. As well as thrilling rodeos, there'll be entertainment in abundance with live music, rides and games, and the Skyride that takes you from one side of the park to the other.

Day 13

Today you'll transfer to the airport to board your overnight flight back to the UK.

Day 14

Arrive back in the UK.

Passports and visas

British citizens require machine-readable passports when travelling to Canada.

The current charge is seven Canadian dollars for British Citizens. British subjects, and anyone who has a criminal record or has ever been arrested, should consult the Canadian Embassy as a visa may be required.

Tipping

Gratuities are a way of life in North America, and it is generally accepted that they form part of a person's earnings. Customary gratuity to a coach driver or tour manager is about $5 per person per day; in a taxi or a restaurant leave 12-15 per cent of the bill and, in the bar, leave a dollar or so per drink.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted on any coach forming part of your holiday; regular stops will be made though for your comfort en route. The majority of hotels in North America are non-smoking throughout including in all bedrooms. In general smoking outside is acceptable, but do look out for signs prohibiting this close to public entrances or bus stops.

On your flight

All outbound flights depart and arrive on the same day. All return flights leave in the evening and land in the UK the next day. On-board meals will usually include lunch and a snack on outward flights, and dinner and breakfast on your flight home. Soft drinks are complimentary, but some airlines will charge for alcoholic drinks.

Luggage allowance

You are permitted to take one suitcase per person on the aircraft, which should not exceed 23kg.

Helicopter flights

Sightseeing flights by helicopter are weight controlled and balanced. Please contact us if you wish to book a helicopter flight and your bodyweight exceeds 250lb. (In such cases, a seat may have to be left empty, and some companies may charge a premium.)

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

Changes to your hotels

Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.

Hotel rooms

Standard hotel rooms in North America will contain one or two double- or queen-sized beds, and it is not possible to add extra beds to the room. Parties consisting of more than two travellers, but who have only booked one room, will be expected to make use of the two beds provided. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Confusion about booking in on Line some of the group were able to. Others, including ourselves were told we could not. This was talking to the Air line direct.

I can thoroughly recommend this holiday. The Canadian scenery is breathtaking and our tour manager took us to all the beautiful places you see in the brochure. Lynn, our tour guide was brilliant, very knowledgeable and sensitive to everyone's needs. Our coach driver, Bill was also entertaining and an excellent driver. All the hotels were good or very good and well situated. The Calgary Stampede was a great experience with a wonderful finale show and fireworks. I can honestly say it is one of the best holidays I have had and would definitely return to Canada.
