Day 1

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA
Transfer from the airport to your hotel. Meet the guide and fellow travellers for the pre tour information in the hotel.

Pre trip meeting time 18:30.

Day 2

BANFF NATIONAL PARK
After breakfast you board the bus for the drive through ranch country in the foot hills into Banff National Park. After an orientation drive of the surrounding area you check into the hotel for the next two nights  in this lively little holiday town of Banff. Now it is time for the first hike along the shores of Minnewanka Lake or on one of the many mountain trails near Banff. Hiking time 2 – 3 hours.

Day 3

BANFF NATIONAL PARK
On a full day hike you explore passes above the tree line and alpine meadows. For example 7.5 km with 725 m gain (4.6 mi, 2414 ft) to a small lake and possibly 2 km further into the pass at 2470 m (8225 ft). After the hike you might want to relax in the warm sulphur pool or walk along the busy streets of Banff with its many stores and visitors from around the world. Hiking time 5 – 7 hours. 

Day 4

YOHO NATIONAL PARK / LAKE LOUISE
You would not want to miss the picture postcard scenery surrounding Lake Louise. The guide suggests the 3.5 km (2 mi) path with 400 m gain (1325 ft) to the historic tea house by an alpine lake. Here a network of easy to demanding trails is tempting you to hike further and higher. For example the 15 km (9.3 mi) circuit into the Plain of Six Glaciers or a 2.5 km (1.6 mi) climb with 515 m (1705 ft) gain to a summit with exceptional views of nearby peaks and distant landscapes. Hotel in Lake Louise. Hiking time 3 – 5 hours.

Day 5

YOHO NATIONAL PARK / LAKE LOUISE

Day 6

JASPER NATIONAL PARK
Frequent stops and short excursions along the Icefields Parkway on your way into the heart of the Rockies. Famous names like Peyto Lake and Bow Summit. At the Columbia Icefields huge glaciers spawn rivers, which eventually reach three different oceans. Saskatchewan Glacier is best viewed from far above after hiking 2.5 km (1.6 mi) to a windy ridge at 2260 m (7525 ft). Then on to Jasper and your hotel in this small mountain town. 
Hiking time 2 hours.

Day 7

JASPER NATIONAL PARK
So many possibilities, swimming and a picnic at Pyramid Lake, mountain biking, trail rides, canoeing and more. Or join the guide for a side trip to Maligne Lake and a 8 km (5 mile) loop hike with 460 m gain (1532 ft) into the hills above tree line at 2150 m (7160 ft) elevation and possibly all the way to the 2790 m (9290 ft) peak overlooking this beautiful lake. Hiking time 2 – 6 hours.

Day 8

CALGARY or JASPER
Mighty Athabasca Falls count among the attractions of this park.
