Straddling the Continental Divide is a swath of the Canadian Rockies that is home to three of the world’s most picturesque mountain landscapes.  On our 14-day Canadian Rockies Tour, you will create everlasting memories as you enjoy a scenic drive past snow-capped mountains in a landscape so pristine it will take your breath away.

Our tour begins in Seattle, Washington with the evening at leisure to simply relax at your hotel or perhaps take the Light Rail downtown to visit Pike Place Market or the Space Needle.  The next morning, start with a scenic drive through the lush forestlands of the Pacific Northwest to the Columbia River Plateau with included sightseeing of the impressive Grand Coulee Dam and nearby Dry Falls.  We continue to travel east into the “Big Sky Country” of Montana passing by the beautiful lakeside communities of Couer d’Alene and Flat Head Lakes.  You will discover pristine forests, alpine meadows, rugged mountains and spectacular lakes as we drive through Glacier National Park in the US and Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada. 

Your mountain journey then takes you along Highway 93 through stunning Kootenay National Park, crossing the Continental Divide by Radium Hot Springs and continuing north visiting Bow Falls and Lake Louise in Banff National Park. You will travel along the Icefields Parkway, stopping along the way to experience an included ride aboard a specially designed “snow cat” vehicle onto the massive Athabasca Glacier.  Then, visit the small resort town of Jasper in fabulous Jasper National Park which is the largest of Canada’s Rocky Mountain Parks. Within its boundaries there are an abundance of elk, big horn sheep, grizzly bears, mountain lions and wolves making it one of the great protected ecosystems remaining in the Rocky Mountains.

Our tour of Canada’s great national parks continues with a visit to Yoho National Park witnessing its rock walls, waterfalls, snow-topped mountain peaks and silent forests. We then travel through Salmon Arm and into the Lake Okanagan Region called the “Napa of the North” because of its many wineries and delicious wines. The trip nears its end as you enjoy traveling scenic Highway 99 into the Coast Mountain range reaching Whistler, the Olympic mountain resort with European flair. You can visit Olympic Plaza where the medals ceremonies for skiing, bobsled and luge events of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games took place learn about the local Aboriginal culture at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Center or simply stroll the village. Your two-week Canadian adventure wraps up in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia with plenty of leisure time to explore the city or take an optional excursion via ferry to Victoria’s Butchart Gardens, before traveling back to Seattle to depart for home.
