This wild, 10,878-square-kilometre park is home to world-famous natural sights and some of North America's rarest animals, including grizzly bears, moose, caribou and wolves.

Our tour takes us to Maligne Canyon, Medicine Lake and Maligne Lake.

Our journey today takes us from one national park to another. We’ll travel along the Columbia Icefields Parkway, a spectacular road which winds its way through endless wilderness, passing pristine mountain lakes and sweeping valleys.

On our way, we stop to experience an unforgettable drive in a specially adapted Ice Explorer onto the Columbia Icefield Glacier, one of the biggest accumulations of ice and snow south of the Arctic Circle.

Day 9 Banff

On today’s tour we experience some of the stunning locations which surround Banff. The beautiful Banff National Park is possibly best known for its lakes and we visit two of the most stunning: glacier-fed Moraine Lake and Lake Louise.

Enjoy the extraordinarily photogenic settings of these two iconic alpine lakes in turn.
