Get off the beaten path

Add a Private Tour – either for a day or your whole tour – and see sights in the Canadian Rockies most tourists don’t even know exist!

Immerse Yourself

Add nights at any destination and get to know Canada even better. Our tours are even more luxurious with a free day in the mountains to hike, soak in the hot springs, or go to a world-class spa. There’s nothing like a coveted second night at the Chateau Lake Louise – but you must book that early!

Take More Adventures

You can do anything in the Canadian Rockies! With an extra day in the mountains, you could:

Go whitewater rafting | Float the Bow River | Play Golf at one of Canada’s best courses | Go hiking | Take a helicopter ride | Go horseback riding | Lay by Lake Louise, or hike to a mountain tea-house | Arrange a cycling tour with our founder Martin Flanagan

In winter, you could:

Ski | Snowmobile | Enjoy a day at the spa | Soak in historic hot springs | Mush a dog sled | Learn cross country skiing | Explore by snowshoe

What else have we done for our clients? 

Chase the Aurora Borealis in the Yukon? We’ve done it.

We work with a lovely little lodge just north of Whitehorse called Sun Dog Retreat. At the lodge, you’ll have your own private cabin in the woods. Our guides there will make sure you learn everything about the north, hear some stories, see some animals and watch for the Aurora.

Heli-ski in the Purcell Mountains? We live down the street!

We literally lived down the street. Most of our staff have lived and worked in Panorama, BC. This is where we all go on vacation. RK. Heliski is right there. We’ve shuttled many guests over the years to this heli ski operation who are celebrating over 50 years in business. Panorama Resort will be worth staying for a few nights. In the winter, there’s plenty of skiing or snowmobiling with Toby Creek Adventures. In the summer, Greywolf Golf Course, one of Canada’s top golf courses is there to enjoy too.

Ride every train in Canada? We’ve made it happen too.

We had a guest contact us in 2012 saying she wanted to ride every possible passenger train in Canada. We made this happen. Our guest started her five week train journey out east. We had so much fun putting this trip together, our company owners Heather and Martin went up to Jasper and rode the final three days with her. It was literally a trip of a lifetime.

Cycle the Canadian Rockies? Hint – a tour is being created.

Our company owner Martin Flanagan has ridden with, and is friends with, ex-pro cyclist Tyler Hamilton. We know Martin and Tyler are working on a tour of the Rockies together. Ride the Rocky Mountaineer train in style from Vancouver to Jasper. Then ride bikes on a fully guided tour with Martin and Tyler as your guides.

Interested in a photography tour of Western Canada? We know some pros.

We love to recommend and work with Neil Zeller. This Calgary based photographer loves to guide and loves to show off Western Canada. He’s ridden aboard the Rocky Mountaineer with us. In fact, many of the photos on our website are his. He’s a busy man and books out early, but if you’d like a special photography tour with him, we’ll be happy to arrange it.

Have a special interest group who want to come to Canada? We’d love to work with you.

We’ve hosted everything from bird watchers to police and firefighter groups to sports teams. Maybe you’d like to come run the Calgary Marathon with a group and then ride the train or perhaps your curling team needs a ride across Canada, everything is possible.

Is your business looking for a place to hold a meeting? We’ve hosted business meetings on board the trains.

There are two very special train cars that can be added on to the train. Perfect for board meetings, these lounge cars can be set up for groups to sit together.
