Get all your transportation, hotels, and sightseeing arranged and coordinated.

Have your trip personalized to perfectly suit your timeline and budget.

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.


Please note – all of our Canada vacation packages can be customized to suit your time frame, budget, group size, and interests.

Day 1 – Your Canada Train Trip Begins – Welcome to West Coast Living
Vancouver is a delight – a modern oasis of restaurants, shopping, and cultural activities nestled in the spectacular scenery of dramatic mountain ranges plunging into the Pacific Ocean. Vancouver is the home of Stanley Park, it has been dubbed ‘Hollywood North’, and the city most often heading the top of the list of the world’s ‘most desirable’. So grab a coffee and stop at a sidewalk café to watch the world go by.

Day 2 – All aboard from Sea to Sky to Whistler
Step aboard the world-class Rocky Mountaineer train, and start the day in style with rich coffee and a breakfast served as you wind your way along the shores of Howe Sound. Take in the spectacular scenery of lush green mountains topped with dramatic peaks that rise from the water just a few feet away. You’ll arrive in Whistler just before lunch time.

This afternoon, choose from a round of golf at the Chateau Whistler, or enjoy a 60-minute classic massage at the Vida Wellness spa, sure to soothe away any tension. Then, explore Whistler Village with its excellent shopping, dining, sightseeing, and lounging opportunities.

Day 3 – Onboard the Rocky Mountaineer – Whistler to Quesnel
You may be reluctant to leave behind the luxurious comfort of your Whistler escape, but today’s rail journey is sure to entice. Departing Whistler in the morning, the Canadian Rockies train winds its way through some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.

While drinking in this breathtaking landscape, every desire will be accommodated with delicious meals, friendly service, and expert interpretative narration of the region’s most delightful highlights. In order to maximize this once-in-a-life time luxury Canada train trip and its incredible views, all travel is done by daylight so you will stay overnight in comfortable and scenic Quesnel.

Day 4 – Onboard the Rocky Mountaineer – Quesnel to Jasper
It might be hard to believe it possible, but today’s scenery may surpass yesterday’s, with the breathtaking arrival of the Canadian Rockies. The forest in this region is thick, lush, and home to all sorts of lively creatures – so be sure to keep an eye trained on the window to catch a lonely moose or wandering bear.

Step off the train in Jasper and into the embrace of these natural gems. You’re on top of the world, far from the stresses at home, and with the Canadian wilderness surrounding you and luxury awaiting, you’re truly at ease. The luxurious experience of the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge awaits upon check-in as you’re welcomed to the Grand Canadian lodge experience.

Day 5 – Golf or Spa – Jasper
The proximity of today’s indulgences is sure to delight – more time to spend relaxing in bed! If the skies are blue and the green is calling, step onto the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge’s famous golf course and start working on your game. Don’t let the challenge of playing in the distracting scenery of the Canadian Rockies affect your swing! Alternatively, choose another way to relaxing massage at the Jasper Park Lodge.

Day 6 – The Icefields Parkway – Jasper to Banff
Today you enjoy a private transfer along one of the most spectacular drives in the world – south down the spine of the Canadian Rockies on the Icefields Parkway. This scenic highway offers unsurpassed views of the Canadian Rockies. You’ll arrive in the bustling yet beautiful mountain town of Banff. Tonight, explore the excellent restaurants and fascinating boutiques of the town. Overnight in Banff.

NOTE: This private transfer takes you from Jasper to Banff, with possible photo stops at scenic viewpoints. If you wish to experience the Athabasca Glacier with a ride on the Ice Explorer, and/or walk on the Glacier Skywalk, please ask your vacation advisor for alternative Icefields Parkway tour options.

Day 7 – Golf or Spa – Banff
Banff is considered by many to be the gem of any Canadian Rockies train vacation, and, after today, you may be tempted to agree.

Another round of golf or spa treatment is the way to spend the day, taking in the majestic mountains of the Canadian Rockies. This sense of natural calm contributes to the soothing atmosphere of the 18-hole Stanley Thompson golf course – the perfect place to lower your handicap. Or choose to feel as fresh and beautiful as your wilderness surroundings with a signature spa package
the perfect way to relax.

Day 8 – Banff to Calgary Airport
Filled with memories of your Canada train trip and the Rocky Mountains, you bid farewell to the Rockies and gradually descend through the foothills by luxury private vehicle, arriving in Calgary in time for your flight.

Common Questions

Will it be cold when I visit Canada in summer?

The temperature varies from mild to hot, depending on location. Northern Canada will range between 50°F to 64°F (10°C – 18°C) in summer. The interior of BC, prairies, Ontario and Quebec can reach temperatures around 95°F (35°C). Canada's west coast, mountain regions, and Maritimes enjoy milder summer temperatures. They range on average from 59°F to 77°F (15°C – 25°C).

What are the best ways to travel around Canada on my vacation?

Canada has a network of spectacular roadways, train routes, ferry crossings, and float planes. We can arrange for you to travel by car or to sit back and relax.

Is it safe to drive in the mountains?

New visitors will drive with ease because of the wide and well maintained roadways. We'll ensure your trip includes the most spectacular and safest routes throughout your trip.

When is the best time to see wildlife?

That depends on the destination and type. As a rule, the main feeding and migration seasons are best for wildlife experiences. Tell us which animals interest you and we'll make your trip coincide with the best viewing season.

Are your tours escorted?

No, but you'll feel like it is with all your connections and experiences prearranged. Our clients love the freedom and flexibility it gives them. Some of our wildlife experiences are small group tours led by specialist guides.
