Beginning at the foot of the Coast Mountains, overlooking the modern city of Vancouver, British Columbia, you’ll roll along the timeless fjord of Howe Sound. Prepare to be amazed as you make your way past cliffs, canyons, and bridges. You’ll arrive at world-famous Whistler, co-host of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. There, you’ll explore the picturesque village and enjoy a relaxing stay at one of Whistler’s finest hotels.
The next day, you’ll depart from Whistler and travel up the Pemberton Valley, gliding beside gorgeous Anderson and Seton lakes. Turning north and west, the landscape becomes more rugged, with sheer cliffs on one side and milky-green lakes on the other. You’ll emerge into the arid ranchland near Quesnel, Canada’s gold rush capital. Gold fever may be cured, but there are still many treasures to be found in this historic region.
After an overnight hotel stay in Quesnel, you’ll head north again, experiencing mountainous terrain, untouched lakes, and towering waterfalls. You’ll gradually gain altitude and enter the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The monumental sight of Mount Robson, the range’s highest peak, will greet you as you wind your way to the alpine town of Jasper, Alberta. Every step of the way, your emotions will mirror the peaks of the journey, from awe to elation.
