  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 harbour, 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, antique shops, and art galleries.

  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, attractively set on the lake shore and surrounded by orchards and vineyards. Sample local wines on the included WINERY TOUR.

  4. KELOWNA-GLACIER NATIONAL PARK-YOHO NATIONAL PARK-BANFF NATIONAL PARK.
    Motor north through the Okanagan Valley, famous for its peaches and vineyards. Climb up 1,334-metre-high (4,379-foot) 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 scale Kicking Horse Pass at 1,652 metres (5,421 feet). By early evening, reach BANFF NATIONAL PARK, gateway to the majestic Canadian Rockies.

  5. BANFF NATIONAL PARK.
    Full day at leisure. Banff is one of Canada's favourite year-round resorts, and your Tour Director will suggest 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 that's 1,200 feet (365 metres) thick. This afternoon, join our optional float trip down the Athabasca River. Enjoy an orientation tour of Jasper town-site upon arrival.

  7. JASPER NATIONAL PARK.
    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.

  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 (3954 metres). Continue following the Yellowhead Highway south along the North Thompson River-a route pioneered by fur trappers a century ago. 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. Free time to explore many sites from the 2010 Winter Olympics or to join one of the many optional excursions, including flightseeing by floatplane over the lakes and glaciated peaks of Garibaldi Provincial Park.

  11. WHISTLER-FERRY CROSSING-VICTORIA.
    Set sail across the Strait of Georgia and through the spectacular Gulf Islands, an archipelago known for its Mediterranean-type climate. Afternoon arrival in Victoria. Sightseeing includes Marine Drive, Bastion Square, and Thunderbird Park with its unusual collection of totem poles. Then, visit world-famous BUTCHART GARDENS, rated among the most beautiful gardens in the world. Stroll through the colourful Sunken Garden, the Japanese and Italian Gardens, the English Rose Garden, and the magnificent Ross Fountain.

  12. VICTORIA.
    Today is at leisure to discover some of the attractions this splendid city has to offer, including the Royal British Columbia Museum, Afternoon Tea at the Empress Hotel, an IMAX presentation at the National Geographic Theatre, whale watching on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and fine shopping along Government Street.

  13. VICTORIA-FERRY CROSSING-VANCOUVER.
    Early this morning, enjoy a scenic ferry crossing to the mainland, where the trip ends with guests departing on individual schedules. Transfers to Vancouver International Airport are included. Please schedule flights after 1:30 pm.

Departures marked are guaranteed to operate.

Where "GD" appears next to a departure, the itinerary is a “Guaranteed Departure” and therefore guaranteed to operate. Tours without the “GD” indicator are still planned to operate, however may be subject to rescheduling. Many factors determine whether a departure becomes guaranteed.

A Force Majeure event is an inevitable or unpredictable event including fire, flood, earthquake, storm, hurricane (or other natural disaster), act of war, invasion, act of foreign enemies, hostilities (regardless of whether war is declared), civil war, rebellion, revolution, insurrection, military or usurped power or confiscation, terrorist activities, nationalisation, government sanction, political unrest, blockage, embargo, labour dispute or strike.
