We refer to several itineraries on our website as ‘The way we’d do it’. Well, at the risk of this term becoming slightly over used that is without doubt the case with our ‘Ultimate Canada Rockies’ itinerary, which we consider to be our ‘Signature’ Canada itinerary!

This is a very exciting itinerary; it really does not get much better. You start with 3 nights in Vancouver giving you time to acclimatise and savour what we consider to be simply one of the best cities in the world.

Vancouver is bursting with style, vibrancy, character and beauty. We will take you across to Vancouver Island for 1 night staying in the capital Victoria, from there you can take an exciting whale watching trip. It’s then back to Vancouver before you board one of the most famous rail journeys anywhere in the world as we whisk you to the rugged beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains aboard the Rocky Mountaineer Train.

DISCOVER THE CANADIAN ROCKIES YOUR WAY.

Take it as you see it, or change it to suit your party! All C.N.A. holidays can be tailored to suit your own tastes and budget.

This morning we suggest you collect your Avis car from downtown Banff, at least then you can utilize the guide for sightseeing information and the car is there if you need it dependent on your daily plans whilst in Banff. We give you three nights and two full days in Banff and you’ll need every minute of it. Take a gondola ride to the summit of Sulphur Mountain (included) for spectacular views, take a cruise on Lake Minnewanka (included), visit the Hot Springs, the Cave and Basin, Banff Park Museum, Banff Indian Trading Post and the Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum, the Bow River Falls at the Banff Springs Hotel and why not take one of the very easy 1, 2 or 3 hour horseback rides along the river. Other activities you can easily book up for are bike rides, fishing trips and rafting on the Bow River. There are also some amazing scenic drives in the Banff area, details of which you can obtain from your hotel.

Overnight – Banff


Day 10
Banff to Jasper
181 miles

You need to set the alarm, grab a quick breakfast and get started today as this is likely to be one of the most scenic drives you are ever likely to take, with lots of pull out’s for stunning waterfalls, lakes and glaciers. You will be heading north along the famed Icefield Parkway, one of the most scenic routes in the entire world. We suggest a stop at Peyto Lake and a visit to Maligne Canyon in Jasper National Park, however there’s so many other well signposted pull-off’s to visit that you’ll be spoiled for choice. At the Columbia Icefield, take an Ice Explorer ride (included) onto the massive glacier and experience the thrill of walking on centuries-old glacial ice where you can sample the pure glacial water. Take in views of the Sunwapta Valley on the Glacier Skywalk, a 500 metre interpretive boardwalk and glass-floored observation platform (included). Of course you will have your friendly GPS travel guide system to keep you well informed along the way so you do not miss a thing!

Day 11 & 12
Jasper

By now you will almost certainly have witnessed some of the amazing wildlife in Canada but keep you’re eyes peeled for bears, moose and the hundreds of elk that roam freely around Jasper. We give you three nights in Jasper allowing you two full days to explore. Be sure to visit Medicine Lake, Cavell Road, Pyramid Lake Road and the ‘Old Banff/Jasper Highway’. Another must is a visit to Maligne Canyon and Maligne Lake where we recommend you hire a canoe. The gift shops at these two attractions are excellent and also worth a visit. We also recommend a visit to Athabasca Falls and Sunwapta Falls, both of which can be done in the same day from Jasper.

Overnight – Jasper


Day 13
Jasper to Moraine Lake
157 miles

Today you return south along the Icefield Parkway. Today’s journey will take about 3 hours 30 minutes if you just drive non-stop but of course you will want to stop to see more of the sites you were unable to visit on the way up to Jasper. Travelling south along the Parkway gives you a whole new perspective of your surroundings and really does feel like you are on a different road.

As you head south you have every right to get excited about the finale we have in store for you on our ‘Ultimate Canadian Rockies’ itinerary. Your stay at Moraine Lake Lodge, just 8 miles from Lake Louise is, we feel, an experience that will last a lifetime. Time and time again our customers tell us how much they enjoyed their stay here, please see a small selection of these comments below.

  • ‘The decision about selecting Moraine Lake ahead of Chateau Lake Louise was undoubtedly the right one, Moraine Lake was the highlight for us. Thanks again’ – Dave
  • ‘We thought that Moraine Lake Lodge was a superb hotel in an unbelievable setting, and waking in the morning to look over the lake and mountains (before the tourist hordes arrived) was something we will never forget. So much more intimate and peaceful than Lake Louise’ – Peter and Margaret
  • ‘Our 30th wedding anniversary will be one to remember. Moraine Lake and Lodge is something close to heaven’ – Gary & Barbara
  • ‘The arrangements were perfect (Moraine Lake Lodge was our favourite hotel)’ – Robert and Susan
  • ‘The upgrade to the Moraine Lake Lodge was well worthwhile’ – Lesley and Graham

Overnight – Moraine Lake


Day 14
Moraine Lake

Today is a free day to explore Moraine Lake and Lake Louise. Enjoy breakfast overlooking the lake, relax by the fireplace in the library, take a walk along the lake shore or maybe take one of the canoes out onto the lake.

Overnight – Moraine Lake

Important Note

Moraine Lake Lodge is a small luxury lodge and is very popular for obvious reasons, early booking is essential. When we are unable to obtain a room here we will look to use the equally impressive Emerald Lake Lodge located a very short distance away. This substitution also applies to stays prior to June 1st and after October 1st when Moraine Lake Lodge is closed.


Day 15
Moraine Lake to Calgary Airport
121 miles

From the Lodge return back to Lake Louise and follow the Trans Canada Highway out of the Rocky Mountains to the Great Central Plains that roll to the east for 2000 kilometers and extend south as far as Mexico. In the late 1700’s, over 60 million Buffalo roamed these plains, but by 1900 they were facing extinction. Only concerted efforts and the establishment of National Parks kept these massive beasts from extinction. Arrive into Calgary in the late afternoon/early evening.

Depart Vancouver – 22:05
Arrive London Heathrow – 13:45 (Next Day)

Do I need a visa to travel to the usa?

In most circumstances, no visa is required for travel to the USA for any British Citizen passport holder and many other European passport holders, whose countries qualify for the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). This program permits entry for up to 90 days for business or leisure purposes. Everyone must apply to use the VWP via the online Electronic System of Travel Authorization (ESTA).  Advice states this should be done online at least 72 hours prior to departure. On payment of the $14 fee this system usually issues an electronic confirmation within minutes but this is not guaranteed and there are certain criteria travellers must consider before applying via ESTA to use the Visa Waiver Program. Once granted the VWP authorization is valid for 2 years.

It is essential that everyone who plans to travel to the United States reads the information contained on the following page – Visa Waiver Program

Please note : From 21st January 2016 The United States implemented changes to the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) as part of the Terrorist Travel Protection Act of 2015. One of the major changes implemented in January excludes any British National who has travelled to Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, or Yemen since March 01st 2011 from using the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Full details are contained on the above link but those affected will need to apply for a Visitor Visa with the U.S. Embassy before booking their travel arrangements.

You are advised to complete your ESTA prior to confirming any travel arrangements.

To use ESTA now please only use the following website – Official ESTA Website

Complete North America Limited cannot be held responsible for cancellation charges incurred by travellers who have booked travel and are subsequently unable to travel as part of the VWP or who are unable to obtain a Visitor Visa. If you have any questions after reading the information supplied above please speak to a member of our team.

Do I need a visa to travel to Canada?

British Nationals and travellers from other European countries can enjoy visa-exempt travel to and via Canada but must first use the online Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) at a cost of CA$7.00 per person. Most online applications are approved with minutes by email but the process can take longer particularly if supporting documentation is requested. An eTA is valid for 5 years and allows you to travel for up to 6 months on any one visit.

You are advised to apply for your eTA prior to confirming any travel arrangements.

For applications and full information on the scheme please only visit – Official Canadian Government eTA Website

Complete North America Limited cannot be held responsible for cancellation charges incurred by travellers who have booked travel and are subsequently unable to travel as part of the eTA scheme or who are unable to obtain a Visitor Visa.

Do I need a visa to travel to the usa?

In most circumstances, no visa is required for travel to the USA for any British Citizen passport holder and many other European passport holders, whose countries qualify for the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). This program permits entry for up to 90 days for business or leisure purposes. Everyone must apply to use the VWP via the online Electronic System of Travel Authorization (ESTA).  Advice states this should be done online at least 72 hours prior to departure. On payment of the $14 fee this system usually issues an electronic confirmation within minutes but this is not guaranteed and there are certain criteria travellers must consider before applying via ESTA to use the Visa Waiver Program. Once granted the VWP authorization is valid for 2 years.

It is essential that everyone who plans to travel to the United States reads the information contained on the following page – Visa Waiver Program

Please note : From 21st January 2016 The United States implemented changes to the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) as part of the Terrorist Travel Protection Act of 2015. One of the major changes implemented in January excludes any British National who has travelled to Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, or Yemen since March 01st 2011 from using the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Full details are contained on the above link but those affected will need to apply for a Visitor Visa with the U.S. Embassy before booking their travel arrangements.

You are advised to complete your ESTA prior to confirming any travel arrangements.

To use ESTA now please only use the following website – Official ESTA Website

Complete North America Limited cannot be held responsible for cancellation charges incurred by travellers who have booked travel and are subsequently unable to travel as part of the VWP or who are unable to obtain a Visitor Visa. If you have any questions after reading the information supplied above please speak to a member of our team.

Do I need a visa to travel to Canada?

British Nationals and travellers from other European countries can enjoy visa-exempt travel to and via Canada but must first use the online Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) at a cost of CA$7.00 per person. Most online applications are approved with minutes by email but the process can take longer particularly if supporting documentation is requested. An eTA is valid for 5 years and allows you to travel for up to 6 months on any one visit.

You are advised to apply for your eTA prior to confirming any travel arrangements.

For applications and full information on the scheme please only visit – Official Canadian Government eTA Website

Complete North America Limited cannot be held responsible for cancellation charges incurred by travellers who have booked travel and are subsequently unable to travel as part of the eTA scheme or who are unable to obtain a Visitor Visa. If you have any questions after reading the information supplied above please speak to a member of our team.

We wanted to thank you for arranging such a wonderful holiday.  Everything was organised perfectly, the package which awaited us at our first hotel was very comprehensive and extremely informative.

Daniel Party (Ultimate Canadian Rockies) -

We returned from our Canadian Holiday a few days ago and had a wonderful time.  We wanted to say thank you for all the arrangements, bookings and planned trips etc. which all fell into place at the right time without any problems or worries.

Farmer Party (Western Canada) -

We loved Jasper, very laid-back and relaxing. The drive to Banff was amazing. As always, your instructions and attention to detail were spot-on. Thanks again.
