Itinerary

Day 1, Seattle & British Columbia

From Seattle, we cross the Canadian Border and enter an up-and-down landscape of grey, snow-dusted mountains and dark conifers. At our first stop, we set up camp beside a pristine glinting lake, where chin wagging may last long past sundown by the flickering campfire. Accommodation: Camping included

Day 2 & 3, Yoho National Park

View the alpine meadows of Mount Revelstoke National Park en route to Yoho National Park. Hike or negotiate the rapids of well-named Kicking Horse River. In any case, the tumbling cascades, glassy lakes and glinting peaks are drop-dead gorgeous... not to mention the glaciers. Accommodation: Camping included

Day 4-5, Banff National Park

Boot up, saddle up and breathe in the crisp alpine air where nature's bonanza includes beavers, bears, porcupines and elk. Ride the Banff tramway to Sulphur Mountain's peak and recharge your batteries in the heavenly hot springs. Accommodation: Camping included

Day 6, Lake Louise

A nickname like the "gem of the Rockies" is a lot to live up to, but it's no sweat for Lake Louise. The imposing chateau looks on as mountains cluster round the turquoise surface. As for you, well, you could always hike out to the Plain-of-Six-Glaciers or inspect the scene by paddle power on an optional canoe trip. Accommodation: Camping included

Day 7-8, Jasper National Park

The widescreen scenery keeps on coming. The Icefields Parkway provides a peach of a drive with panoramic views of endless valleys, sheer ridges, glaciers and spruce forests - truly one of the world's ultimate drives. Jasper's wildlife puts up a fight for your attention too; the sharp-eyed may glimpse grizzlies, wolves or caribou. This sprawling natural expanse offers bike trails, helicopter flights and ice-walks through the most spectacular scenery that the Canadian Rockies offers. Accommodation: Camping included

Day 9-10, Wells Grey Provincial Park

The stillness, silence and isolation go up another notch. Drive through secluded Wells Gray to the end of the road and our awaiting canoes and overnight on the shores of Clearwater Lake. Nature surely never felt closer than on your included outback canoe trip. A unique and unforgettable experience! Accommodation: Camping included

Day 11, Cache Creek

On the old Gold Rush trail, this town still packs a frontier punch. All around, prickly cacti, brush and tumbleweed add to its appeal. Accommodation: Camping included

Day 12-13, Vancouver

There is ample time to explore all this vibrant metropolis has to offer. With its stunning combination of mountains and coastline, the city boasts outstanding views. Stride, rollerblade or pedal your way round Stanley Park, or relax and let the free shuttle take the strain. Walk the Capilano Suspension Bridge, 230 head-spinning feet above the river before checking out the city nightlife in Gas Town or the eclectic "Robsonstrasse". Accommodation: Camping included

Day 14, Seattle

Puget Sound gives you one final wilderness vision before returning to Seattle, home of the original Starbucks! Tour ends at approx 17:00 hrs in Seattle on day 14.
