Itinerary

We'll meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel where a welcome dinner awaits later on in the evening. Stay Two Nights: Delta Hotels Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort, in a Deluxe Water View Room (D)

After this morning's experience, the rest of the day is left to spend as you like. (B)

Signature Experiences:
  • Visit The Butchart Gardens for breakfast in the original Butchart residence. You've been granted special access to the gardens before the crowds arrive, so use this time to explore the floral gardens in serenity.

Pay a quick visit to Chemainus before taking your BC Ferries service across Georgia Strait. Take pause at Shannon Falls before arriving in Whistler. If you'd rather forgo the journey by land and ferry, take a floatplane flight instead (own expense). Stay: The Westin Whistler Resort & Spa (B)

Wave goodbye to Whistler, travelling past Duffey and Seton lakes, as well as the rural towns of Pemberton and Lillooet, on the way to Kamloops. When you've arrived, you'll have the chance to settle in and become familiar with the inn. Set at the base of rocky cliffs, you'll get a real sense of what it's like to be in the heart of Canada's countryside. Stay: Kamloops, South Thompson Inn (B/D)

Head to the British Columbia Wildlife Park this morning and pay a visit to their resident Kermode bear – a black bear whose recessive genes make its fur entirely white! On the way to Jasper, you'll pass towering Mt Robson, before crossing from British Columbia to Alberta, arriving in Jasper National Park. Stay: Jasper National Park, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge (B/D)

Freedom of Choice:
  • Choose one of the lodge's restaurants for a delicious dinner.

Travel along the Icefields Parkway through the iconic Canadian Rockies.

Freedom of Choice:

It's a pleasure to see what all the commotion is about at the famous Calgary Stampede, and you're able to stay among the excitement for two nights at the iconic Fairmont Palliser. Stay Two Nights: Calgary, Fairmont Palliser (B)

Signature Experiences:
  • Grab your cowboy hat and spurs, getting into the swing of things at the annual Calgary Stampede! Starting as an exhibition way back in 1886, the Stampede grew to a live show with performances and events, and grew even more to be known as the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.

Today is spent at the Calgary Stampede. Celebrating Calgary's western heritage and values, the Stampede attracts over one million visitors to the town every year. Some of today's events include bareback-riding and steer-wrestling, as well as chuckwagon racing, stage shows, parades, concerts, agricultural competitions and First Nations exhibitions. (B)
