National Parks of the Canadian Rockies Westbound

The Rockies are a great reason to explore the Canadian West, but why stop there? We asked that question, then answered it with this trip — a sprawling, nature-rich mini-epic that melds some of Canada’s best national parks with time on the mist-shrouded shores of Vancouver Island. Find yourself face-to-face with moose, deer, and maybe even a bear on this trip loaded with diverse experiences — whale-watching, glacier hikes, hot springs, and much, much more — you’ll stuff a lifetime’s worth of adventure into the space of a mere two weeks.

National Parks of the Canadian Rockies Eastbound

Vancouver’s North Coast Mountains are just the appetizer for this journey from the Pacific Coast to the Canadian Rockies. Beginning in beautiful Vancouver, travellers will hit the ocean in search of whales before heading east into the enveloping mountain wilderness of Banff and Jasper National Parks, where sulphur springs, canoeing excursions, and glaciers older than time abound. And since we camp out most nights, you’re guaranteed maximum natural contact at a minimal price. You might even find yourself face-to-face with a moose, deer, or maybe even a bear. The Great Outdoors — now all yours.
