Why we don't do online booking?

Online booking sites prefer you do not bother them at all. Our approach is completely the opposite – instead we put visitors directly in touch with our Canadian travel insiders because we believe the best vacations are personal.

Itinerary

Please note, like most of our Canada rail packages & tours, this railway vacation can be customized to your needs – just ask one of our local experts when you call.

Day 1 – Arrive in Vancouver
Vancouver is considered to be one of the most desirable places to live in the world – it is rich with culture, art, cuisine and diversity while being surrounded by wild mountains, oceans and forests. Walk out of the airport and right into a private vehicle. Your driver will help orient you to our hometown, Vancouver.

Feature Dinner in Vancouver
Did you know Vancouver is one of the top culinary destinations in the world? We want to make sure you experience our hometown’s gastronomic delights to their fullest, and have the best meal in the best setting that ensures you make memories over a great meal!

Day 2 – Explore Vancouver
Today it’s your choice - you have
3 options to choose from to help you discover Vancouver and its magnificent surroundings.

• Option 1: Vancouver and North Shore Tour
Find out why Vancouver is consistently voted one of the world’s most livable cities. Uniquely gifted with the juxtaposition of mountains and ocean, this tour allows you to explore Vancouver’s highlights and also venture to the local mountains. Take an exciting walk over the treetops and Cliff Walk at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and learn about the delicate temperate rainforest ecosystem.
Activity rating: Easy

• Option 2: Bicycle Tour of Vancouver
The bicycle is the Vancouverite’s quintessential mode of transport! With an extensive cycle lane network this tour travels along well maintained bike paths. It highlights the best of Vancouver food, history, ecology, and culture. Visit the Seawall and Stanley Park, eat lunch at Granville Island Public Market and see historic Gastown and Chinatown.
Activity rating: Moderate

• Option 3: Walking Tour in Stanley Park
Did you know that Stanley Park is 10% larger than New York’s famous Central Park? And that it was home for hundreds of years to the people that inhabited this ancient forest. This tour offers an enriching cultural option for those interested in First Nations culture, and showcases another side of history. A unique perspective is shown as you stroll amongst the trees and learn how First Nations people utilized the flora as technology, to make medicines, and for food. Hear myths passed down in oral history and understand just why this park is so unique and important to the First Nations.
Activity rating: Moderate

Day 3 – Vancouver to Victoria
BC’s capital city - Victoria - is located on wild and beautiful Vancouver Island, where it offers a fascinating blend of West Coast culture and British charm. Explore excellent museums, art galleries and the rich history.

Today you have
3 transportation options to choose from – each delivering an exciting journey.

• Option 1: Bus & Ferry (approx. 4 hours)
Take a bus that drives right onto the ferry. The passage takes about 90 minutes, offering magnificent views of mountains, ocean, and the Gulf Islands as you navigate the waters of scenic Active Pass.

• Option 2: Whale Watching Adventure (approx. 4 hours)
Did you know that the waters of Haro and the Juan de Fuca Straight are teeming with marine wildlife? Orcas, humpback whales, porpoises, and sea lions are just some of the species you might encounter. This tour will deliver you to Victoria’s Inner Harbour just before lunch time - and with experiences to reminisce about over your meal!

Activity rating: Easy

• Option 3: Float Plane (approx. 35 min)
Have you ever wanted to take off and land on water? An exhilarating floatplane flight from Vancouver’s Harbour to Victoria’s Inner Harbour will let you experience the thrill and a gorgeous bird’s eye view of the Gulf Islands on the way.

After arriving into Victoria, check into your hotel and spend the rest of the day exploring at your leisure.

Day 4 – Explore Victoria
Victoria has much more to offer than initially meets the eye, and we’ve made sure you get to discover the city’s hidden treasures while leaving your free time to explore the regular tourist attractions that interest you.

You have
3 options to choose from today:

• Option 1: Kayak Victoria’s Inner Harbour
Discover the unique waterways of Victoria, while being part of the hustle and bustle of harbour life. This tour does not require any previous kayaking experience and is suitable for the entire family. Wildlife sightings such as river otters, eagles and seals are common, and with the backdrop of the BC Legislative building and the historic Fairmont Empress hotel, you are sure to have a unique experience!
Activity rating: Moderate

• Option 2: Explore Victoria’s Natural Surroundings on a Hike
We’ve partnered up with a special guide who happens to be a professional photographer. You’ll be taken on an afternoon adventure that explores the beauty around Victoria and culminates in spectacular views of the Juan de Fuca Straight and the Olympic Mountains in Washington State. You’ll even get a picture of yourself with a spectacular backdrop as a souvenir of your adventure.
Activity rating: Moderate – Challenging
Distance: 6.5 km (3.8 miles); Elevation Gain: 200 m (650 ft.)

• Option 3: Butchart Gardens
If you are a garden enthusiast, no visit to Victoria is complete without seeing these magnificent and historic gardens. Spend as much time as you like exploring the stunning displays and small pathways. The shuttle between Butchart Gardens and Victoria runs several times a day, so take your time to enjoy at your own pace.
Activity rating: Easy.

Day 5 – Drive from Victoria to Alert Bay
Alert Bay is a small town nestled on Cormorant Island. It’s a bit out of the way, but getting here is well worth the extra steps. Once home to a salmon saltery and cannery and known as the fishery capital of Vancouver Island, this quiet town now impresses with pristine and spectacular natural surroundings, abundant marine life, and a very rich aboriginal culture and history.

Pick up your rental car early this morning and drive along the scenic roads of Vancouver Island from Victoria to Port McNeill, a little town along the northeast coast. From here, catch a ferry to Alert Bay – a quick 40 minute crossing – and settle in to your charming and historic waterfront accommodation.

Day 6 – Johnstone Straight and Blackfish Sound
We have the following tour included for you today to explore the magnificent wilderness that surrounds you:

Grizzly Bear Viewing
You’ll be picked up in Alert Bay this morning. Join a guide and small group on a marine excursion to a small cove in one of BC’s many coastal inlets to encounter grizzly bears feasting in the rich waters of the estuary. On route, chances are you might encounter marine mammals such as orcas, humpback whales, pods of Pacific white-sided dolphins, and porpoises. This is an amazing way to view wildlife far away from the disturbances of civilization.
Activity rating: Easy


Day 7 – Drive from Alert Bay to Port Hardy
The drive today is short, giving you the opportunity this morning and afternoon to enjoy Alert Bay if you chose the grizzly tour yesterday. Also, well worth a visit is the quaint little town of close-by Telegraph Cove, showcasing an exceptional whale museum and the best clam chowder on the island! This afternoon, weave your way north along the scenic roads of Vancouver Island until you reach Port Hardy. This small fishing port is located on the northern tip of the island and is surrounded by wild and rugged scenery. Drop off your rental car and prepare for your Inside Passage ferry tomorrow morning.

Day 8 – Port Hardy to Prince Rupert – The Inside Passage
Inhale the fresh clean air on the deck of the ship as you admire the views along the Inside Passage. Lush green coastal mountains, thick old-growth forests, tranquil grey-blue water and perhaps even a soaring hawk or eagle or a breaching whale - this unspoiled scenery will captivate you. Arrive in the town of Prince Rupert in Northern BC in the evening.

Day 9 – Explore Prince Rupert
There is plenty to discover in this Northern BC town. You have 2 options to choose from, showcasing the best of this area.

• Option 1: Canoe Adventure
Join a guide for an out-of-the-ordinary yet quintessential Canadian experience – a canoe paddle. Head out to paddle on the silence of a lake surrounded by mountains, or discover the shoreline of a nearby island.
Activity rating: Easy to Moderate

• Option 2: Wildlife Viewing (Seasonal)
On specific dates, you also have the option of venturing into the Khutzeymateen Wilderness in the heart of the protected Great Bear Rainforest by boat for additional grizzly bear or whale watching. Please inquiry with your Vacation Advisor for seasonal availability when you call!

Day 10 – Board VIA Rail Prince Rupert to Prince George
Board the VIA Rail Skeena Train and glide down the tracks alongside the raging Skeena River. You’ll pass by canyons, valleys, and mountain ranges where fur traders and First Nations people once traveled. Did you know the Skeena Train still delivers mail and other necessities to remote communities along the way? Reach the city of Prince George where you will spend the night.

Day 11 – VIA Rail – Prince George to Jasper
Continue your train journey toward the Canadian Rockies. The Skeena Train has large windows perfect for viewing the rugged peaks and dense green forests all around you. Sit back while enjoying your included meals and admire the views. Upon arrival, pick up your rental car and spend the night in Jasper, a quiet mountain town surrounded by pristine alpine wilderness.

Day 12 – Jasper
Spend the day exploring all the exciting opportunities of Jasper National Park. You have 3 options to choose from today to help you enjoy Jasper:

• Option 1: Maligne Lake Cruise & Jasper SkyTram
Visit the natural wonder of Maligne Lake, where you will take a boat cruise to scenic Spirit Island. You also have admission to the Jasper SkyTram –
the longest and highest guided aerial tramway in Canada. Providing visitors with unprecedented views of six mountain ranges, glacial fed lakes, the Athabasca River and the scenic mountain town of Jasper.
Activity rating: Easy

• Option 2: Nature Walk or Hike
Admire rare alpine wildflowers, track wildlife, and see stunning valley views with one of the best, hand-picked mountain guides in Jasper. Enjoy a leisurely pace, and plenty of time for photos and discussion. For those who prefer a hike, Mount Edith Cavell is a fantastic destination for the day.
Activity rating: Moderate (approx. 4 miles) – more challenging hikes available on request


• Option 3: Sidecar Motorcycle Tour
Explore winding mountain roads and beautiful scenery on a thrilling sidecar motorcycle tour through Jasper National Park (for 1 or 2 passengers).
Activity rating: Easy


Day 13 – Icefields Parkway from Jasper to Lake Louise
Drive along what is surely one of the most scenic mountain roads in the world – the Icefields Parkway.

Here are
3 options for exploring:

• Option 1: Guided Icewalk along the Athabasca Glacier
Walk along the Columbia Icefields – the largest mass of ice in the Rocky Mountains. The most accessible part of the Icefields is the Athabasca Glacier, where you can venture by foot. Join a guide and small group of travellers on a hike along the glacier – experience a place few people get to see firsthand.
Activity rating: Moderate

• Option 2: Icefields Helicopter Experience
Step away from the crowds and take a helicopter tour abundant in natural beauty, glaciers and waterfalls. Leave from an exclusive Icefields base and soar over Cline Pass and over Cline, Lion and Lioness Glaciers. You’ll also view a spectacular 900ft waterfall flowing from two aqua green lakes!
Activity rating: Easy

• Option 3: Columbia Icefield Glacier Adventure Package
Your adventure begins with a ride onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier in the all-terrain Ice Explorer – a vehicle specially designed for glacier travel. Your tour includes a stop on the glacier, where you can stop onto the ice and fill your water bottle with fresh glacier water. Your package includes the jaw-dropping walk along the glass-floored Glacier Skywalk at the cliff’s edge. Experience waterfalls, wildlife, fossils and more on this exciting 1 km cliff-edged walkway that leads to a platform where glass is all that separates you from a 918-foot drop.
Activity rating: Easy

Upon arrival in the Lake Louise area, you can either choose to stay at the iconic Chateau Lake Louise, or at the intimate Moraine Lake Lodge.

Feature Dinner in Lake Louise

No matter how you choose to tour, this evening you’ll relax and refresh with an indulgent dining experience. Surrounded by spectacular lake views and attentive service, indulge in a 3 course meal in Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise’s Fairview Dining Room, or Moraine Lake’s Walter Wilcox dining room.

Day 14 – Drive from Lake Louise to Banff
Before driving the short distance to Banff, explore our Lake Louise Activity Menu for some exciting options to enjoy the area. At your leisure, journey to Banff, a friendly and vibrant town surrounded by mountains on all sides. Spend the afternoon enjoying the fun, relaxed vibe. Unwind in the park alongside the Bow River and visit the many quirky local boutiques and cafes along Banff Avenue.

Day 15 – Explore Banff
Take a full day to discover the wilderness surrounding the town of Banff. Enjoy the views from the Banff Gondola located atop Sulphur Mountain.

Additionally, you have the choice of one of
3 options today to help you enjoy Banff:

• Option 1: Sunrise Photography Tour
Wake up early to experience the magical wilderness of Banff National Park at sunrise. Explore with a private guide and learn how to take great photos. Ideal for the amateur photographer wanting to increase their skills with a manual camera. This is a sure way to make friends and family at home jealous!
Activity rating: Moderate (some walking involved)

• Option 2: Banff Alpine Walk and Picnic
Soar above majestic peaks and get away from the crowds of Banff on a guided heli-walk and picnic. Marvel at pristine and breathtaking vistas that will leave you speechless. Tours are also available with the picnic only.
Activity rating: Moderate

• Option 3: Kananaskis Wilderness Adventure (seasonal)
Looking to escape the crowds and getting on the path less traveled? This guided wilderness adventure will get you out into beautiful and pristine Kananaskis Country – jagged peaks, lakes, and glaciers are your backdrop for the day. Encountering wildlife on this outing is more likely than on the well-trodden paths around Banff. The tour culminates at the summit of Highwood Pass at 2200 m (7200 ft). Now that’s something to write home about! Please inquire with your Vacation Advisor for seasonal availability when you call!
Activity rating: Moderate

Hidden Gem!
As the insiders, we have been to many restaurants across Canada. End your vacation with a bang and allow us to help you make reservations for the evening. Just one part of Fresh Tracks Canada’s value added service. Psst! Head up the mountain to Sky Bistro for dining with a view!
