An escorted tour through the Rockies offers raw, colourful scenes of life: mineral lakes shining on a summer’s day, the glaciers approaching or receding with the seasons, or even a young bear creeping out of hibernation.
The Canadian Rockies are resplendent with idyllic scenes, from moose sipping from rivers to fairytale forests to scenic railways that snake right around the mountains and through the valleys. If you think about it, the “Rockies” is a quaint name for what is actually North America’s largest, most significant mountain range. While these mountains certainly boast these tranquil scenes, it packs a punch with deposits of copper, gold, silver, and zinc, and average heights of 2,000 metres.
A visit to the Rockies offers infinite opportunities for discovery, exploration, and relaxation. There is the turquoise Lake Louise, Canada’s most picturesque lake, the historic Jasper Skytram, Canada’s longest cable car, and the capital of the Rockies, the lively town of Banff. You can journey through the most spectacular parts of the country via legendary roads including Icefields Parkway and the Trans-Canada Highway, or even on board the world's most scenic railway, the Rocky Mountaineer, taking in the ever-changing environments of coastal ranges, glaciers, and waterfront cities.
The Rockies spans 3,000 miles from northern British Columbia to central New Mexico. In the Canadian Rockies, Mount Robson is the highest peak at just under 4,000 metres high. As you might imagine, it can be difficult to know just where to go and what to see. There is so much beauty in these diverse and colourful ecosystems. But that’s where an escorted tour comes in.
We have thoughtfully curated sights and experiences, from exploring royal museums in Victoria to summiting the breathtaking Sulphur Mountain, so that you don’t need to plan, you just need to enjoy. Travellers over 50 love our Rockies holidays, not simply because of the comfort provided - high-quality accommodation and coach travel - but because of the variety offered within our Canada tours. No two days are the same. You could start the day with a delicious pancake and maple syrup spread, and finish it off by spotting moose, elk, or even black bears while the sun sets over the mountain. Here's to an adventure in the Great White North!

We answer the most frequently asked questions about holidaying in The Rockies.
The weather in the Rockies can be cool during all seasons, so fill your suitcase with warm base layers (thermals are a great idea), jumper, waterproof jacket, full-length trousers, scarf, gloves, woollen socks, sturdy and waterproof footwear, and a hat. Remember, layering is key!
If you are travelling in summer, you might like to bring shorts, sandals, and your swimsuit - just in case.
Of course! Sweet tooths will enjoy our Rockies adventure as there is the option to stop off and sample plenty of local produce. Check out our Staff Stories for more insider’s information.
For some travellers, the Canadian winter might be bordering on the extreme, with temperatures hovering around -8°C to -14°C. Spring in Canada can still be fairly chilly, but summer offers long, sunny days to spend in the outdoors. As such, this can be a busy time of year to visit.
Between September to November, the scenery is transformed with fall colours, so we recommend booking a Rockies holiday for autumn. Check out our guide to Canada’s mountains for more details.
