Western Canada


Western Canada consists

of indescribable nature!

SUGGESTION:

West Canada

North of the United States is a larger country, which also contains a wealth of experiences. Canada is known for its world-famous cities, magnificent and wild nature, and for its abundant wildlife. You may be lucky enough to see bears, elk, and whales while visiting Canada. The country is currently experiencing thriving tourism, partly due to the interest in the world-renowned cities. The French put Canada on the map nearly 600 years ago, which means that in many places in Canada today, there is still a mix of the English and French languages. Canada can be experienced either by itself, or in combination with a US trip. If you stay in the East, for example, you can combine it with a trip to Boston, New York or Niagara Falls. In the West, you can combine it with a trip to Washington, Oregon, and even California. Whatever you choose, we promise you that the experience will be unforgettable!

Itinerary

DAY 1 - 5: VANCOUVER

Your Canada adventure begins with four nights in the city of Vancouver. Vancouver is a modern city located on the Western Pacific coast, and was originally founded by the Chinese. It is a multicultural city packed with adventures waiting to be had. Whale watching, skiing, hiking, shopping, and beach tanning are just a few of the many things that Vancouver has to offer.

Start by exploring Stanley Park – North America’s largest urban park, which lies just North of downtown. This massive park is almost completely surrounded by sea, and is packed with trees. You can rent bikes, take a walk, or even ride in a horse-drawn carriage. Stop by a café for lunch, or bring a picnic lunch along! Beneath the Granville Bridge near downtown Vancouver you’ll find Granville Island, a place where something is always happening. Take a mini-tugboat ferry to get there, and upon arriving, get ready to indulge your senses in a variety of shopping, entertainment, and dining experiences. Browse through stores or visit the Public Market, grab a beer, and meet foodies, musicians, and artisans. All on one cozy little island.

The original settlement, before it came to be known as Vancouver, was called Gastown. Visit the Gastown district, where you can walk around and look at the Victorian style buildings while you experience some great shopping. Here you will also find the charming Steam Clock, which steams and plays music every hour.

Set aside some time to drive 15 minutes out of town and visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge, the world’s longest suspension bridge. This 140-meter-long bridge hangs 70 meters above the Capilano River, and is surrounded by lush and beautiful rainforest. The Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is full of adrenaline-pumping activities, if you dare to try them. Drive a bit further from there to Grouse Mountain. This beauty stands over 1,200 meters tall at its highest point, and you can ride a gondola up a considerable part of it. During the summer, you will see the dense Douglass fir forests, where you can go for hikes. From May to October, you can experience the lumberjack show at the top of the mountain, as well as visit Grinder and Coola, two grizzly bears living in a fenced-in wildlife reserve. During the winter months, you will see plenty of white snow, ready for skiing.

DAY 5 – 7: KAMLOOPS

(354 km /220 miles – 3 hour-and-50-minute drive)
The North and South Thompson rivers meet at Kamloops, a beautiful city in British Columbia. Mountain biking, fishing, skiing, snowboarding, and golfing are just a few of the many things you can find to do here. Between the towering alpines and the grasslands, Kamloops offers diverse geography and something for everyone.

Immerse yourself in Kamloops’ cowboy heritage with a visit to Douglass Lake Ranch. Just South of Kamloops, this ranch is the largest in Canada, and has 20,000 head of cattle. Douglass Lake Ranch is the size of Luxembourg – which is quite large for a ranch! You will have the opportunity to explore the surroundings on horseback, as many guest-ranches rent out horses.

DAY 7 – 10: JASPER NATIONAL PARK

(274 miles/441 km – 4 hour-and-40-minute drive)
Today we head towards Jasper National Park, located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. This is the first of two national parks that you will visit, and is the larger of the two, but with the smaller town. With friendly locals, over 2.7 million acres of wilderness, and a quaint town, you are sure to enjoy your time in Jasper. The national park has everything from rivers to lakes, bears, and moose, and miles and miles of hiking trails to enjoy. In the middle of the park is the cozy town of Jasper. Get a beautiful view of Jasper and the surrounding scenery from the 2,277-meter Whistler Mountain. Jasper’s SkyTram is an unforgettable experience, and the perfect way to reach the amazing viewpoint. The SkyTram is an aerial tram that transports you up to the mountain ridge in 7 minutes. A further hike to the top is suggested for more spectacular views.

Drive an hour out to Maligne Lake, one of the most photographed lakes in the world. This nearly 14-mile-long river is one of the best views that Jasper National Park has to offer, so don’t miss it if you can help it. Cross the narrow lake on a boat trip, or perhaps by canoe, and head out to Spirit Island. For those adrenaline seekers, rafting on the Sunwapta river is something that you won’t regret. You can also find other river rafting tours of varying difficulties, including some which are much less wild. There are also many beautiful waterfalls and canyons in Jasper National Park, such as Athabasca Falls and Maligne Canyon, both of which are unique places.

In the Southern part of Jasper National Park you can experience the Athabasca Glacier, which moves an average 6 of centimeters a day. Here you can take a bus trip out and stand on the glacier, which is considered the largest accumulation of snow and ice South of the Arctic Circle. Nearby, you can walk out on the Glacier Skywalk, a bridge with a glass floor that hangs 280 meters above the glacier-made valley. Here you get amazing views of cascading waterfalls and green forest.

DAY 10 – 13: BANFF NATIONAL PARK

(228 km / 141 miles – 3 hour-and-30-minute drive)
Next stop is the smaller of the two parks, with over 1.6 million acres to explore, but with a larger and more vibrant town. Banff is Canada’s oldest national park, and is rich in history. This park offers a postcard-like setting with several glaciers, glacial lakes with azure water, coniferous forests, waterfalls and beautiful mountain peaks. Take your time when you drive from Jasper to Banff along the beautiful Icefields Parkway – one of the most beautiful roads in the world. You will find one beautiful vista after another, and be sure to make a stop at the two breathtaking lakes, Peyto Lake and Bow Lake. Both of these lakes have absolutely crystal blue water with forest and mountain peaks as a backdrop. Make a stop 36 miles North of Banff, where the unique Lake Louise is located. Here you can also see one of Canada’s most spectacular hotels, the Fairmont Chateau, which is located right next to the beautiful lake.

When you arrive in Banff, look around and admire the charming architecture and quaint mountain feel. Banff is the highest elevation city in Canada, and has completely dazzling mountain views in the Rocky Mountains – all around. The city itself is filled with countless restaurants, hotels, happy travelers, and a great atmosphere. If you were a fan of Jasper’s SkyTram, then head over to the Banff Gondola for some equally incredible views. You will be taken up to Sulphur Mountain to see Banff and the surrounding area from a different perspective. The hot springs are what first attracted tourists to Banff, and you can experience some of the wonder yourself. Hike down partway and then relax in the Upper Hot Springs Pool, surrounded by towering trees, and fresh mountain air.

DAY 13 - 15: CALGARY

(109 km / 68 miles – 1:10 timers kørsel)

Then we head to Calgary, where you spend the last two nights. Still in the beautiful province of Alberta, this city springs up like a metropolis in the middle of the wilderness. Here are great views of beautiful countryside, mountains, and lakes, as Calgary is located at the convergence of the Bow River and Elbow River. Visit Calgary Tower and get 360-degree views from 200 meters up. This steel and concrete building was built in 1967, and was the city’s tallest structure until 1983. Although it is no longer the tallest, it remains a wonderful place to visit. The old city hall is another beautiful building in Calgary. Standing strong and in great condition for over a hundred years, the clock tower is something fine to admire. If you haven’t gotten your fill of nature on this trip, take the bridge over to Prince’s Island Park. Here you will find gardens, walking paths, bike lanes, and the opportunity for relaxation as your trip comes to a close. Note the nearby Peace Bridge, a spectacular bright red pedestrian bridge at the West end of the park.

Calgary has been nicknamed “Cowtown,” due to its history as the center of the Canadian cattle industry, and during the summer you will find rodeo shows, which testify to the city’s origins. Calgary also offers several interesting museums to visit, as well as their famous zoo and dinosaur park. Enjoy this perfect last stop after a West Canadian holiday with unmatched views and experiences.
