Canada Place Vancouver Western Canada Explorer

Western Canada Explorer

This one-way interpretive, overnight tour from Banff to Vancouver (or Vancouver to Banff) takes you through the still-wild west of Alberta and B.C. The first pioneers attempted to lasso the wilds of Western Canada with long stretches of railway track. The steep rocky terrain fought back and, at times, the mountains seemed too enormous to tame. With blood, sweat, tears and dynamite they carved a path through the sky-piercing peaks. The route is still used to this day. Now you can journey in modern comfort in a deluxe mini coach, traveling 850kms through four of Canada’s earliest national parks. The tour includes stops in Lake Louise and the famous Spiral Tunnels, Giant Cedars Boardwalk, Glacier National Park, the Cascade Mountains and the Gold Rush country along the Fraser River.

Throughout the tour as we move from Banff to Lake Louise and return your guide will do their best to point out local wildlife and explain what its like living in a national park with animals sometimes literally, on our doorsteps!
