1 Vancouver
Welcome to Vancouver! Your Tour Director is on hand late this afternoon to answer any questions.
2 Vancouver
This morning, an included city tour highlights Stanley Park, Chinatown, the harbor, beaches, and more. The rest of the day is at leisure; your Tour Director can suggest ways to further explore the city. Maybe take a water taxi to Granville Island with outdoor markets, street musicians, and waterfront cafes. Or, visit historic Gastown with its steam - powered clock.
3 Vancouver - Kelowna
Our journey begins in British Columbia's fertile valleys and continues through rich mountain forests to Lake Okanagan. Travel along the lake to the resort city of Kelowna, beautifully situated on the lake shore and surrounded by orchards and vineyards. Sample local wines on the included winery tour.
4 Kelowna - Banff National Park
Motor north through the Okanagan Valley, famous for its peaches and vineyards. Climb up 4,379 - foot - high Rogers Pass in Glacier National Park. Take a break at the pass, perfect for photos of the rugged mountains, glaciers, and waterfalls. Enter Yoho National Park and ascend Kicking Horse Pass at 5,421 feet. Reach Banff National Park, gateway to the majestic Canadian Rockies. An orientation tour includes Banff's unspoiled beauty.
5 Banff National Park
Banff is one of Canada's favourite year - round resorts, and home to 53 species of mammals. The most commonly seen are deer and big horn sheep. If the timing is right, you may spot black bears, grizzlies, or wolves. Your Tour Director will also have suggestions for an optional helicopter ride over the Canadian Rockies.
6 Banff National Park - Lake Louise - Columbia Icefield - Jasper National Park
First, to Lake Louise, its turquoise waters a perfect natural mirror that reflects the mountains and glaciers. Precipitous gorges, snowcapped summits, and lakes of exquisite blues and greens come into view as the motorcoach continues northward into Jasper National Park. A highlight today is a stop at the Columbia Icefield to ride the Ice Explorer that travels on ice measuring 750 feet thick. This afternoon, join our optional float trip down the Athabasca River. Enjoy an orientation tour of Jasper townsite upon arrival.
7 Jasper National Park
Today, join our optional excursion to Maligne Lake and Spirit Island, and embark on a narrated cruise. The balance of the day is free to enjoy everything Jasper has to offer - from quaint shops to meandering wildlife.
8 Jasper National Park - Mount Robson - Sun Peaks
Leave Jasper and follow the Fraser River to the base of Mount Robson, the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies, peaking at 12,972 feet. Continue following the Yellowhead Highway south along the North Thompson River - a route pioneered by fur trappers. Overnight at the Sun Peaks mountain resort.
9 Sun Peaks - Lillooet - Whistler
Head south, following the once treacherous Cariboo Wagon Trail. Via Lillooet, "Mile 0 of the Gold Rush Route," your motorcoach will follow the shores of Seton and Duffey Lakes with a late - afternoon arrival in Whistler.
10 Whistler
Spend the day in the alpine resort of Whistler, nestled at the base of breathtaking Blackcomb Mountain. Enjoy free time to explore many sites of the 2010 Winter Olympics held here. You may decide to join one of many optional excursions, including a flightseeing excursion by floatplane over the glaciated peaks, or a gondola ride between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains - the perfect bear - spotting vantage point.
11 Whistler - Ferry Crossing - Victoria
Set sail across the Strait of Georgia, known for its Mediterranean - type climate. Afternoon sightseeing in Victoria includes world - famous Butchart Gardens, Bastion Square, and Thunderbird Park with its unusual collection of totem poles.
12 Victoria

This trip is a must I really liked the relaxed way, no meals were included but that did not bother us as there are so many places to eat, we took cereal with us, bought...read more

“Great tour”
- TAS, Australia Jul 2019 5 Helpful Votes

We thoroughly enjoyed our coach tour of the Rockies. Booking online with Global Journeys was very easy and efficient. On the tour our guide Dan was very knowledgeable, not only about the area in which we were travelling, but he also gave us lots of information about Canada generally, all the while keeping us entertained with music, DVDs and the occasional quiz. Our driver Keith was courteous, helpful and always cheerful, but most importantly, a careful driver.

“Fantastic Experience”
- NSW, Australia Jul 2019 5 Helpful Votes View Photo

This trip was my first overseas experience and it was fantastic. Elaine Wright the tour director was fantastic and was extremely knowledgeable and had everything and all 43 travellers organised and on time every day. Mike the driver was great as well. The scenery in the Rockies was fantastic and no photos actually do it justice and I enjoyed the tour and the company of the other travellers so much. Would definitely recommend Cosmos in Canada again.
