Then see the interesting Spiral Tunnels of the railroad and visit the memorial where the Last Spike was driven in to complete the Trans Canada Rail line. Spend the night at a unique resort complex on an inland lake, where you’ll enjoy a tour of the ghost town and a barbecue dinner this evening.

Day Eleven

Take a scenic drive to Vancouver today, where you’ll spend the next two nights.

Day Twelve

A guided tour shows you the best of the city. This afternoon enjoy free time for lunch and exploring on Vancouver’s Granville Island, full of unique shops, restaurants, and a charming atmosphere all its own.

Day Thirteen

Day Sixteen

This morning, board a ferry for a full day cruise through the Inside Passage. The coastal scenery as you wind our way north through this famed and rugged passage is spectacular; spend the day taking it all in where coast meets mountains. Disembark the ferry in Prince Rupert, just south of the Alaskan border, and check into the hotel for the night.

Day Seventeen

A once-in-a-lifetime experience awaits you today, as you take a day-long adventure to view the area’s outstanding northern wildlife. Board a catamaran and cruise north along the coastline to the Khutzeymateen Inlet, where we view grizzly bears along the shoreline from the safety of the vessel. Enroute, keep your eyes peeled for porpoises, seals, sea lions, whales, and a variety of sea birds. This excursion is often counted as one of the highlights of the tour, and for good reason! A light lunch is included onboard. Return to Prince Rupert this afternoon for our final night in this stunningly beautiful area.

Eighteen & Nineteen

Enjoy a scenic drive on the coach, arriving at a hotel near Prince George for one night. Then, board a VIA train and travel through some incredible scenery today. Ride the rails through the Rocky Mountains, winging along the mighty Skeena River. There is access to a dome car, offering sweeping, panoramic views from extra-large panoramic windows. Meals are included onboard. Arrive in Jasper this evening, where you’ll spend the next two nights.

Day Twenty

This morning visit the Jasper Yellowhead Museum and Archives. This fascinating exhibit showcases the life of the people who built this part of Canada, and gives us a glimpse into what it must have been like settling an area so geographically unforgiving. This afternoon, you have the option of enjoying a casual walk in the area, or you may wish to board the Jasper Sky Tram for a bird’s eye view from atop Whistler’s Mountain (extra cost). The choice is yours.

Day Twenty-One

The scenery today is beyond compare! With magnificent mountains on both sides, we wind our way through the Parkway to the Columbia Icefields and Athabasca Glacier aboard the coach. Take a unique Snowcoach ride right up the glacier and experience walking on it. Continuing along the Parkway, arrive in Calgary, where we spend the last night together.
