Western Canada & Rockies
Canada has much to offer the adventurer. Why not take a cruise out of Vancouver through the Strait of Georgia? You can spot the resident orcas travelling in a pod, leaping from the water and flashing their black and white bellies as they swim by! Chug across the Canadian Rockies on an epic train journey, carve your way across deep powder drifts on a snowboard, and try white water rafting on the Kananaskis River. At Banff National Park, you can soak in the Upper Hot Springs amongst snow-draped vistas or try heli-hiking – where you fly up the mountains and trek through the remote snowfields. You can glimpse wolves, moose and caribou in Jasper National Park before driving to the world famous Columbia Icefield. Visit Jasper National Park in January for great skiing, the annual snow festival (where there is a chilli cook-off!), slide down the mammoth hills on a toboggan and kayak across the glistening Lake Louise. Relax after this adventure at one of Whistlers 20 spas. You can stay in the famous Fairmont Chateau Whistler resort for ultimate luxury. You deserve it! From here on, visit Calgary to see the world’s largest outdoor rodeo, or hop on your trusty steed and join experienced cowboys on a cattle drive! If all this is too much, why not travel between Vancouver through to Banff and see the sights in luxury aboard the Rocky Mountaineer. It is an unforgettable train journey to enjoy on your honeymoon and a holiday you will never forget!
Canada has many opportunities for wildlife and resort adventures for everybody to enjoy.
