Itinerary

Day 1 Vancouver

After checking into your hotel the time is yours for touring Vancouver. A two-day “Hop-on Hop-off” bus pass provides you with convenient access to some of Vancouver’s biggest attractions including Chinatown, Stanley Park, Gastown, English Bay Beach, the Robson Street Shopping District and Granville Island.

Day 2 Vancouver to Kamloops

You’ll travel northeast out of Vancouver aboard a Rocky Mountaineer train. Your route glides through the Fraser River Valley, skirting past the fir-covered Canadian Cascade Mountains and Hell’s Gate, the valley’s most famous landmark. The route bends east at the Thompson River and enters a stark landscape of barren hills. You’ll spend the second night of your Canadian vacation in Kamloops.

Day 3 Kamloops to Banff

Today’s rail-ride snakes into the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Upon crossing the Continental Divide, you’ll enter Alberta and continue east into Banff, a designated world heritage area. The route winds in and around a labyrinth of snow-capped peaks, cascading streams and ancient glaciers. Some of the more notable landmarks include the Spiral Tunnels, Rogers Pass, and Craigellachie, the historic site where the Canadian Pacific Railway’s last spike was pounded in 1885. You’ll arrive in Banff in the early evening.

Day 4 Banff to Jasper

Your tour shoots northwest up the Icefields Parkway, hailed as one of the world’s most scenic stretches of highway. Snow-powdered peaks frame both sides of the route, providing view after spectacular view of mountain awe. To maximize your mountain experience, along the way you’ll board a specially designed Ice Explorer bus and venture onto the Athabasca Glacier. This massive flow of ice and snow is part of the Columbia Icefield. You’ll spend the night in Jasper, another of Canada’s famous mountain resort towns.

Days 5, 6, 7 and 8 Jasper to Toronto

An evening train departure will allow time for a boat cruise on Maligne Lake, located in Jasper National Park. Towering, snow-cloaked peaks ring the lake with mesmorizing alpine beauty. A stop on Spirit Island, for photo purposes, highlights the cruise. (A substitute excursion will be provided in May until the lake ice is melted). Canada’s geographical diversity will then come into full view as you travel east aboard VIA Rail’s Canadian train. From Jasper you’ll journey through Edmonton and then into the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, home to Canada’s vast prairies and grasslands. Your train then continues into Ontario and travels just north of the Great Lakes, passing through scenic towns and villages hemmed by thick hardwood forests. You’ll arrive in Toronto in the morning, giving you all day to tour Canada’s largest city. Enjoy an amphibious bus tour that combines the city's landmarks with the scenery of the waterfront. On land, you will see the CN Tower, legislative buildings, and much more. Then, dive from the hustle and bustle of downtown into the serenity of Western Lake Ontario. Cruise the waterways of Ontario Place and take in the views of the magnificent Toronto skyline. The continuous commentary en route is topical as well as historical and focuses on the heritage of the city. Overnight in your Toronto hotel.

Day 9 Side Trip to Niagara Falls

The Niagara Falls full day tour will bring you to one of Canada’s most spectacular sights. You will make your way to Niagara through the towns of Hamilton - "the steel capital of Canada", St. Catharines - "the fruit basket of Ontario", and the wine region of the Niagara Peninsula. An ample amount of time will be spent at the falls to give you every opportunity to take pictures and admire the thundering waters. Included is a thrilling boat ride on the Hornblower for a unique view of the spectacular Horseshoe Falls. Other highlights include a meal and a trip along the beautiful Niagara Parkway which winds its way along the Niagara Gorge passing through the historic community of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Overnight in Toronto.

Day 10 Toronto

Your tour ends upon checking out of your Toronto hotel.

This itinerary is also available in reverse on Mondays & Fridays.
