About the tour
This 10-day expedition exposes the breathtaking frozen panoramas of the Canadian Rockies and the warm ambiance of Western Canada's cities and resort towns in the winter. Our journey begins in Vancouver, where a sightseeing tour showcases the city's eclectic neighborhoods and famous sites. Vancouver is the gateway to the Rockies, and it's here where we board one of Canada's most iconic trains, VIA Rail's Canadian, for a journey to Jasper. Enjoy a taste of classic overnight train travel on the one-night journey into the Canadian Rockies. While on the train, relax in your private accommodations, visit the domed-glass sightseeing lounge, and dine on delectable chef-prepared cuisine. On arrival in Jasper, witness the stunning beauty of Maligne Canyon frozen in time on a guided ice walk across the canyon floor. Next, a drive along the Icefields Parkway finds us first in Lake Louise to visit this famous hamlet and then in Banff. Here, a guided tour introduces us to all of Banff's natural wonders from the ground and from the top of Sulphur Mountain. Enjoy a free day to enjoy a variety of seasonal activities ranging from sleigh rides to skiing before returning home from Calgary. The beauty of Western Canada in winter is undeniable, and with this tour you have the grand opportunity to experience it first-hand.
We arrive into Vancouver, checking into our hotel for a three-night stay. Overnight Vancouver.
