Day by Day

    Welcome to Vancouver! Your Tour Director is on hand late this afternoon to answer any questions.

    This morning, an included city tour highlights STANLEY PARK, Chinatown, the harbour and beaches, and more. The rest of the day is at leisure, and your Tour Director will have suggestions for your further exploration of the city. Maybe take a water taxi to lively Granville Island with its outdoor markets, street musicians, and waterfront cafes. Or, visit historic Gastown with its steam-powered clock, antique shops, art galleries, and street vendors.

    This morning, set sail across the Strait of Georgia through the spectacular Gulf Islands, an area known for its Mediterraneanlike climate. Afternoon sightseeing in Victoria includes world-famous BUTCHART GARDENS, Bastion Square, and Thunderbird Park with its unusual collection of totem poles.

    Be sure to discover some of the attractions this splendid city has to offer, including the Royal British Columbia Museum, Afternoon Tea at the Empress Hotel, a whale-watching cruise on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and fine shopping along Government Street.

    An early departure from Victoria follows the eastern coastline of Vancouver Island, stopping at Chemainus, the unique village with more than 30 murals depicting pioneer settlement of the area. Then, it's through the port of Campbell River, the "Salmon Capital of the World."

    Early this morning, embark on one of the world's most beautiful ocean voyages. The scenery is spectacular, with towering mountains, roaring waterfalls, endless islands, and virgin rainforest. Marine life abounds, often with sightings of sea lions, eagles, and porpoises-you may even spot a killer whale! Late-evening arrival in Prince Rupert. NOTE: Cruising time through the Inside Passage is approximately 16 hours. Please come prepared with all medications, eyeglasses, and any other items you will need.

    Depart for an orientation tour of Prince Rupert, then visit the NORTH PACIFIC HISTORIC FISHING VILLAGE, a National Historic Site, for a guided tour of British Columbia's oldest cannery village. Learn of the canning process and what life was like in the village during peak production in the last century.

    This morning, board VIA Rail's Jasper-Prince Rupert train for the trip of a lifetime. Sit back and enjoy an alldaylight journey that winds its way through the majestic Coast Mountains, follows the mighty Skeena River-often referred to as the "River of Mists"-and concludes in the Pacific Coast rainforest. You'll retrace ancient First Nations trading routes and follow the paths of the earliest fur traders. Soaring bald eagles, inquisitive black bears, browsing moose, and other wildlife may be spotted from the glassed-in observation dome that provides 360-degree views. (CB,L,D) NOTE: On departures June 17, July 15, Aug. 26, Sept. 5 & Sept. 9, there are no included meals or dome-car access. However, meals are available for purchase.

    As we continue onward to JASPER NATIONAL PARK the peak elevations grow, culminating with Mount Robson, the highest of Canada's Rockies at almost 13,000 feet (3962 metres). Overnight in Jasper.

    Today, join our optional excursion to Maligne Lake and Spirit Island, where you embark on a narrated cruise of the lake. The balance of the day is free to enjoy everything Jasper has to offer, from guided hikes and quaint shops to meandering wildlife.

    Winding our way down the western fringe of Alberta, our journey takes us through some of the Canadian Rockies' most breathtaking wilderness. Our first highlight on today's agenda is a stop at the COLUMBIA ICEFIELD to experience the Ice Explorer, an all-terrain vehicle that travels on ice measuring 1,200 feet (365 metres) thick. Next, Lake Louise, its cold waters perfectly mirror the surrounding mountains and glaciers. Precipitous gorges, snowcapped mountain ranges, and lakes of exquisite blues and greens come into view as we continue the journey south to BANFF NATIONAL PARK.

    Banff is one of Canada's favourite year-round resorts, with summer activities including hiking, boating, horseback riding, and fishing. Cosmos has arranged for an optional helicopter ride high over the Canadian Rockies.

    The trip ends today with the final leg of your journey taking you to Calgary International Airport for those with homebound flights. Please schedule flights after 2 pm. For those wanting to extend their holiday, consider the Banff extension or extra nights in Calgary.
