Beautiful Vancouver is the starting point for this two-week circular tour that showcases the national parks of the Canadian Rockies. Eastbound from Vancouver, the itinerary ventures through the Okanagan Valley, Glacier National Park, and Banff and Jasper national parks. Drive west from Jasper through the Yellowhead Pass, Wells Gray Provincial Park and Garibaldi Provincial Park before returning to Vancouver.
Spend 2 days in Vancouver and the surrounding area. Climb aboard a San Francisco-style trolley for a fully-commented Vancouver city tour. Sightsee at your own pace as you hop-on and hop-off for any length of time at many premier attractions, parks, gardens, galleries and restaurants.
Travel through the Coastal Mountains and Manning Provincial Park. In the park, you can take a walk on the remnants of the Dewdney Trail or the Rhododendron Flats. The town of Penticton lies at the lower end of Okanagan Lake and the lush orchards and vineyards of the Okanagan Valley. The region is also renowned for its beaches and hot, dry climate.
Morning is at leisure to enjoy the Okanagan Valley. Then drive past spectacular waterfalls, towering peaks and beautiful lakes en-route to the Revelstoke area.
Scenic drive through Glacier National Park and Rogers Pass en-route to Canada's oldest national park and the bustling resort town of Banff. Enjoy a full day to tour Banff and the surrounding area. We suggest a visit to the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel or Bow Falls or ride the Sulphur Mountain Gondola. You may also try river rafting or a boat tour on Lake Minnewanka.
Drive to Jasper via the spectacular Icefields Parkway. We suggest a stop at Peyto Lake and an Ice Explorer ride on the Columbia Icefield. Have a full day to relax and tour Jasper and the surrounding area. We suggest a ride on the Jasper SkyTram or a visit to Miette Hot Springs. If time permits, the Athabasca River can offer exciting white-water rafting excursions.
100 Mile House
Drive through the Yellowhead Pass, beside Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Rockies, and continue south along the Thompson River, skirting the perimeter of Wells Gray Provincial Park. We suggest stops in Blue River and Clearwater en-route to 100 Mile House.
100 Mile House was founded during the days of the Cariboo Gold Rush, when a roadhouse was built here to service gold seekers heading to the goldfields. They travelled along the Cariboo Wagon Road, beginning in Lillooet and frequently stopped at the roadhouse that became known as 100 Mile House. The area is now known primarily for prime cattle ranching and leisure activities.
Scenic drive south along the Cariboo Highway and Duffey Lake Road to the edge of Garibaldi Provincial Park and the popular year-round resort of Whistler. Enjoy a full day to relax and enjoy outdoor activities including hiking, sailing, windsurfing, golfing, tennis, and boating, as well as shopping in Whistler Village.
