Overnight in Calgary, AB.
Calgary the fifth largest city in Canada. Located at the sunny foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains towards the eastern side, Calgary is the major city for the entire southern half of the Province of Alberta. There is countless stunning, glimmering skyscrapers in this ever vibrant and ever-growing cosmopolitan city. However, surrounding the city is the profound beauty and unspoilt natural environment. The Canadian Rockies on one side and where the Bow and Elbow rivers meet, on the other. Calgary is rich in natural resources with the main one being the oil industry after oil was discovered in 1914 in Turner Valley which had a dramatic effect on the cities economy, for the better. Before the discovery of oil, Calgary was full of ranchers and cowboys/ cowgirls. To this day there is still a huge Rodeo called the ‘Calgary Stampede’ held annually. The roots of this rodeo go back to 1886, but the first official rodeo and festival started in 1912.

Guided tour of Banff National Park, during which our experts offer interesting facts on the history, culture and tales surrounding the Canadian Rockies. On your tour, stop at the wide-river Bow Falls, climb to the Surprise Corner Viewpoint for panoramic views of Sulphur Mountains and beyond, see the unique Hoodoos rock formations carved out by water and wind over centuries. Surround yourself with the sounds of nature as you visit the dramatic Johnston Canyon, which is carved into the limestone bedrock and features waterfalls, overhanging rock walls and deep pools of the Johnston Creek.

Next, visit the rejuvenating thermal waters at Cave and Basin National Historic Site of Canada. Stroll past steaming waters into the ancient cave, where the natural hot springs were first discovered as your guide unravels tales of Banff National Park.

Enjoy the complimentary hot chocolate and cookies at the summit, which features a multi-sensory theatre, interactive exhibits, the Sulphur Mountain Boardwalk and an observation deck with 360-degree views of the mountains, Bow Valley, and Banff.

Overnight in Banff, AB.
Drive into the Yoho National Park.  Our first stop will be at the Lower Spiral Tunnel Viewpoint.  This highway pull-off offers perfect views of the famous Spiral Tunnels, an engineering feat in which the railway line creates a giant figure-8 under the mountains to tackle the steep altitudes. 

The tour will next visit the Natural Bridge, an impressive rock formation that the powerful Kicking Horse River has cut through to resemble a bridge with a small waterfall on the other side. This is also a great viewing spot to see the meeting point of the three Emerald, Amiskwi, and Kicking Horse Rivers.  From here, we will make a short drive the up road to the gorgeous Emerald Lake, a bright turquoise glacial-fed lake that is surrounded by rugged mountains and pine-tree forests.
