Good Morning! It’s your first day in the Canadian Rockies and today is going to be wonderful! Take some time and get acquainted with your surroundings. This afternoon, it’s high tea at the Banff Springs hotel. Even non tea drinkers will enjoy the experience. This evening you are off to the Sulfur mountain tram for a tram ride to the top of the mountain followed by dinner, the scenery will be a feast for your eyes too.
Today we have an Iconic activity, the Lake Minnewanka boat cruise! You will head out on the turquoise water of Lake Minnewanka, surrounded on all sides by enormous, majestic mountains. On the way back plan a short drive up Mt. Norquay road for terrific photo opportunity of Mt. Rundle across the valley. It’s fine spot for an afternoon coffee too.
Every spectacular image of Lake Louise was taken from the Lake Louise ski resort. So, today we have a beautiful ride up the frontside of Lake Louise ski resort that will give you a chance to create your own brilliant image of Lake Louise. A short walk away is Whitehorn lodge with a tasty Bistro snacks and a huge deck overlooking the valley and Lake Louise. Following your descent it’s time to head to Moraine lake for the views that adorned our $20 bill for years. Naturally, while you’re in the area a stop at the shore of Lake Louise is in order. Perhaps, some refreshments at the Chateau Lake Louise?
Today is about taking in the most scenic highway in Canada! A driving day heading north to Jasper. Along the way, you’ll stop at the Columbia Icefield interpretive Centre. You get a ride on the legendary Giant Ice Explorer as it takes you out on Ancient ice. Fill your water bottle with fresh glacial water before heading to the Skywalk portion of the tour. Here you can enjoy the views of the valley and beyond. With stops at Peyto and Bow lakes for some “scenery breaks”, you’ll be ready for your comfy hotel in Jasper!
Your day today is quite mellow, you can take a short drive up to Pyramid Lake to enjoy your morning coffee. Check out Jasper townsite and pick a spot for dinner tonight. This evening a driver will pick you up and take you out to visit some local wildlife. Plan to see Elk, Big horn sheep, possibly mountain goats and bears too.
You have two iconic activities today, a lazy river float down the Athabasca River in a giant rubber raft! Plan on a fun afternoon with some great photos! Next a drive to the Maligne Canyon with Cretaceous fossils right in the rocks as you stroll by. Soon the roar of the water builds as you near the canyon and you can feel the mist on your face! As you stroll deeper down the canyon you cross the water several times by bridge. By now, a meal at the sensational Wilderness Kitchen will seem like a great idea.
Today you have two options, head to Edmonton or back to Calgary. We can talk about the best choice for you and your itinerary. OR Consider a train ride through the Mountains to Vancouver for the flight home.
