Itinerary:

Day 1 Calgary, Canada
Welcome to Calgary, also known as “Cowtown” & the heart of the country & western culture in Canada, however, don’t let that fool you as it is still an amazing metropolitan city. Head to Calgary Two for a view of the city from the Clouds or Calgary Zoon for a fun & informative day out. If you are looking for something a little deeper then head to the Glenbow Museum & seasonally see Heritage Park Historic Village.

Your Tour Director is on hand late this afternoon to answer any questions.

Day 2 Calgary – Banff National Park
The discovery of oil converted this ranching town into a sophisticated city. It is also home to the world-famous Calgary Stampede.

An orientation tour includes Banff’s unspoiled beauty.

Day 4 Banff National Park – Lake Louise – Columbia Icefield – Jasper National Park
Enjoy a day of scenic grandeur. The first stop is Lake Louise, whose turquoise waters create a natural mirror that reflects the surroundings. Up next: a stop at the Columbia Icefield to experience the Ice Explorer, an all-terrain vehicle that travels on ice that is 750 feet thick. Then, journey north into Jasper National Park, where precipitous gorges, snow-capped summits, and lakes of exquisite blues and greens come into view as the motorcoach scales two mountain passes. Later, your Tour Director suggests an optional float trip down the Athabasca River. Enjoy an orientation tour of Jasper townsite upon arrival.
