We'll begin our stunning Canadian Rockies tour from Calgary and travel into Banff National Park, Canada's first national park.

First, we'll travel up to the top of Sulphur Mountain aboard the Banff Gondola (admission not included) for a 360 degree view of Banff and the Canadian Rockies (90 minute stop). Next, we'll travel to Johnston Canyon and walk along the scenic trail (1 hour stop).

From here we'll see the majestic Bow Falls, which was seen in the film "The River of No Return" (15 minute stop). Then we'll travel to Surprise Corner for a stunning view of the region (15 minute stop). Afterwards, we'll discover the famous Hoodoos - what's a Hoodoo? You'll have to join us to find out!

We'll end the day in Banff, a charming alpine town.

Day 02
Icefields Parkway

Banff - Bow Lake - Columbia Icefield - Peyto Lake - Crowfoot Glacier

Hotel: S-Package (Town area) -- Spruce Grove Inn or Voyager Inn or Inns of Banff or similar

Today we'll explore the nearby Jasper National Park.

First, we'll travel along the amazing Icefield Parkway. Stretching 232km through the heart of Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site, this world-class journey offers access to a vast wilderness of pristine mountain lakes, ancient glaciers and broad sweeping valleys.

This amazing highway will lead us to Bow Lake, one of the hidden gems of the Rockies (20 minute stop). Next, we'll arrive at Columbia Icefield where you can choose to join the Ice Explorer ride across Athabasca Glacier and step out onto the Glacier Skywalk (admission not included).

From here we'll journey to Peyto Lake, a glacier-fed lake in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. During the summer, significant amounts of glacial rock flour flow into the lake, and these suspended rock particles give the lake a bright, turquoise color. (20 minute stop)

We'll end the day with a visit to Crowfoot Glacier, which is named for its odd shape (15 minute stop).

Tips:
Breakfast is included.

Day 03
Yoho National Park

Lake Louise - Calgary

Hotel: L-Package (Downtown area) -- Delta Bow Valley Hotel or Sandman Hotel / S-Package (Airport area) -- Coast Plaza Hotel or similar

Our Canadian Rockies tour will lead us to the Gem of the Rockies, Lake Louise!

We'll enjoy a 2 hour stop here to enjoy the beauty and splendor of the lake. Take some time to walk along the shore or visit the nearby Chateau.

Next we'll travel to another stunning lake, Moraine, which is surrounded by the rugged and imposing Ten Peaks Valley. Its waters shine with the most amazing color, a vivid shade of turquoise that changes in intensity through the summer as the glacier melt. Moraine Lake is surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and rock piles, creating a scene so stunning it almost seems unreal (45 minute stop).

Afterwards we'll explore Yoho National Park, the third national park that makes up the Rockies with Banff and Jasper. Named for a Cree expression of awe and wonder, Yoho lies on the Western slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

Here we'll visit Spiral Tunnel, one of the most bizarre feats of engineering to get the grade of a train line to be at or below 2.2%. The current two spiral tunnels where the railroad forms two spirals, crossing beneath itself twice, almost forming a figure eight, before continuing in the proper direction down the mountain were completed in 1909.

Then we'll arrive at Emerald Lake to enjoy the beauty of this amazing Canadian lake (20 minute stop) followed by the Natural Bridge. Sculpted by the erosive forces of rushing water over what had once been a waterfall, the Natural Bridge is a powerful reminder of how much influence water has in shaping the landscape (15 minute stop).

Finally we'll return to Calgary.

Tips:
Breakfast is included.
Day 04
Calgary

Calgary - Waterton National Park - Calgary

Today, we'll visit Waterton National Park, the only park in the world that has three designations - UNESCO World Heritage Site, an International Peace Park and a Biosphere Reserve!

First on the agenda is a visit to Prince Wales Hotel, the park’s most recognized landmark (30 minute stop) From here we'll visit the charming and vibrant town of Waterton (1 hour stop).

Next, its off to Cameron Falls, a highlight of any Waterton visit. Crystal clear cascading mountain water rushes steadily over 1.5 billion year-old Cambrian rock, throwing off a delicate mist that dusts the skin of those who stand-around admiring it. (15 minute stop)

Then we'll explore Red Rock Canyon. The layers of red and green colored minerals offer a brilliant contrast to each other and the lush surroundings (30 minute stop). Afterwards we'll encounter the Buffalo Paddock. During spring, summer and autumn, direct descendants from the original herd of Great Plains bison live and graze in their natural habitat (15 minute stop).

Then we'll return to Calgary and end our Canadian Rockies tour.
