After meeting our travelling companions we enjoy a scenic drive to Sault Ste. Marie, beginning with the Chi-Cheemaun cruise from Tobermory to Manitoulin Island.
We visit Wawa this morning on our way to Thunder Bay, stopping at the Terry Fox Memorial, located where Terry was forced to end his Marathon of Hope.
A visit to the hauntingly beautiful Kakabeka Falls is a lovely way to start our day as we travel through Kenora and into Manitoba. We spend the night in Winnipeg.
Today we visit the Assiniboine Zoo, where we’ll experience their attraction, "Journey to Churchill", which will get us up close to Arctic fox, snowy owls, muskoxen, and polar bears. This afternoon, we’ll visit the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. The first national museum to be built outside the National Capital Region, this facility is dedicated to the evolution, celebration and future of human rights.
A local guide joins us for a tour of Winnipeg, followed by the short drive to Regina.
This morning we visit the RCMP Museum, followed by the fascinating Moose Jaw Tunnels and learn about the rum-runners during the prohibition era. After a unique Fabric of Canada event, we spend the night in Medicine Hat.
We soon see the foothills of the Rockies in the distance as we approach Calgary, our home for the next two nights.
We spend the day at the Calgary Stampede. Enjoy hundreds of exhibits, entertainment and events and reserved seats for the evening Chuckwagon Races.
This morning we visit spectacular Lake Louise, where we stop for pictures and see Victoria Glacier reflected in the lake before continuing on to Banff. We take a ride up Sulphur Mountain on a gondola, for glorious views of the mountains and the town below. Take some time to walk the well maintained boardwalk trails, or just sit and enjoy the view. Enjoy the evening on your own in the beautiful town.
Today we 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. We spend the night at a fascinating resort complex on an inland lake, where we enjoy a ghost tour and barbecue dinner for a unique experience.
A scenic drive takes us into Vancouver today, where we spend the next two nights.
A guided tour shows us the best of the city. We have lunch and free time for exploring at Granville Island this afternoon.
We take a ferry from Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay on Victoria Island. A local guide joins us this morning for a tour, followed by an afternoon at Butchart Gardens. The evening is free for you to perhaps stroll the harbour waterfront, enjoy dinner on your own or take in an evening boat cruise.
Enjoy a free day in the beautiful city of Victoria today. Tour the impressive parliament buildings, have afternoon tea at the imposing Empress Hotel, wander the waterfront, or grab some fresh and chips for lunch at Fisherman’s Wharf.
We travel through Vancouver Island today, stopping in Duncan to see the famed totem poles, and Chemainus, for their famous murals which cover most of the exterior walls in town. We spend the night in Port Hardy.
This morning we board a ferry for a full day cruise through the Inside Passage. The coastal scenery as we wind our way north through this famed and rugged passage is spectacular; spend the day taking it all in where coast meets mountains. We disembark in Prince Rupert, just south of the Alaskan border, where we spend the night.
A once-in-a-lifetime experience awaits us today, as we take a day-long adventure to view the area’s outstanding northern wildlife. We 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. A light lunch is included onboard. We return to Prince Rupert this afternoon for our final night in this special place.
Eighteen & Nineteen
We board our VIA train and travel through some incredible scenery. We ride the rails for two days, travelling through five mountain ranges, winging along the mighty Skeena River. There is access to a dome car, offering sweeping, panoramic views from extra-large panoramic windows. Meals are available for purchase onboard. We spent the night in comfort at a nearby hotel in Prince George, before boarding the train again the following morning for the rest of this incredible journey. We arrive in Jasper this evening, where we spend the next two nights.
This morning we visit the Jasper Yellowhead Museum and Archives. This fascinating exhibit shows us 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.
The scenery today is beyond compare! With magnificent mountains on both sides of us, we wind our way through the Parkway to the Columbia Icefields and Athabasca Glacier. We take a unique Snowcoach ride right up the glacier and experience walking on it. Continuing along the Parkway, we soon arrive in Calgary, where we spend our last night together.
