7 day tour, available July, 2018 - September, 2018

Day 1

Tour Pick Up- After we pick you up from your Calgary Hotel we head 2 hours West, into the mountains. Watch the landscape go from flat plains to rolling hills to jagged rocky peaks in the span of 15 minutes. We set up camp in Kananaskis Country, eat a hearty meal and go on a quick hike in the area.

Day 2

Banff and Lake Louise- We wake up in the fresh mountain air, and after a tasty breakfast, we take the scenic route past Spray Lakes and Canmore. Experience world renown Lake Louise and Moraine Lake, before turning North on the slightly less explored Icefields Parkway. We make sure to check out impossibly turquoise Peyto Lake and thundering Mistaya Canyon before pulling in to Bow or Abraham Lake, where we camp for the night. Feel free to explore the area, or go for a dip in the breath taking water, if you dare. Feast on local delicacies, and lay back as the first stars come out. Now your on mountain time.

Day 3

Icefields Parkway- We hit the road and continue North on our journey towards Jasper. Along the way we stop and enjoy countless waterfalls, views, and the Columbia Icefield, where you get up close and personal with the Athabasca Glacier. Look over the edge of Maligne Canyon and watch the tumultuous path of water far below your feet. We camp near Jasper, with fiery orange mountain skylines in all directions.

Day 4

Jasper- Put your spurs on because today you can explore the area on horseback to get a unique perspective on the rugged landscape. Take your time to wander around the Jasper town center before riding the Jasper Tram high up to a mountain ridge. Try your photography skills during the evening light, with epic panoramas in all directions.

Day 5

Jasper and Yoho- Today we head South then West into Yoho National Park, where we stop at lesser known treasures such as Takakkaw Falls and the ingenious Spiral Tunnels of the CPR. Check out Emerald Lake and the Natural Bridge, where millions of years of water has taken its toll on the rock. Listen to the distant roar of the falls or lay below towering Chancellor Peak before we camp for the night on the tranquil shores of Kinbasket Lakle.

Day 6

Yoho and Rafting- Wake up to the crisp air of Yoho and head out for a day of scenery and excitement on the Kicking Horse River. Hike among the sheer mountains Yoho is famous for and maybe even circum navigate Emerald Lake, before relaxing for the evening.

Day 7

Kootenay and Banff Drop Off We continue West, then South along the “Valley of a Thousand Peaks”, stopping for a dip in the hot springs at Radium. Watch for wildlife as we turn East through Kootenay National Park. As we cross the park we meet Banff National Park and arrive in the town center by 3 pm. Here you end your adventure tour and we drop you off at your hotel or at the bus station for a connecting shuttle to Calgary.
