Day 1 UK to Montréal
Our VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Montréal.
Day 2 Montréal to Québec City
Consistently rated as one of the ‘most liveable cities in the world’, Montréal is the perfect introduction to French-speaking Canada.
A guided tour takes in many of its historical and architectural highlights, before we proceed to the equally impressive Québec City.
You stay at Clarendon Hotel Québec City (4*), Hotel PUR (4*) or Hotel Château Laurier Québec (4*).
Day 3 Québec City
UNESCO-listed Québec City is the only fortified city in North America, boasting a perfectly preserved old town.
Our morning guided tour sets the scene; afterwards, you’ll have free time to discover the city’s sights for yourself.
Day 4 Ottawa
This morning we are bound for the Canadian capital of Ottawa.
Once again, its fine architecture and natural setting make for memorable hours of wandering.
We’ve included a short orientation tour with time at leisure to follow.
Day 5 Toronto
The 1,000 Islands Parkway, following the north shore of the St Lawrence River and the shoreline of Lake Ontario, makes up a scenic portion of our drive from Ottawa to Toronto.
This friendly city is sure to charm - we include an orientation tour, before the remainder of the day is yours to explore.
Day 6 Niagara Falls
Toronto is ideally located for our full-day excursion to experience one of the great spectacles of nature - Niagara Falls.
Picturesque in their parkland setting and awe-inspiring in their power, the Falls are a true icon of world travel, which you may choose to view up close from a Hornblower boat.
We return to Toronto in the evening.
Day 7 Toronto to Calgary to Banff
We fly to Calgary today.
Upon arrival, we transfer to Banff, a wonderful gateway to the Rocky Mountains.
Day 8 Lake Louise
Our included tour today is to Lake Louise, justly famed for its beauty - a turquoise jewel encircled by snow-capped mountains.
The gardens of the Chateau hotel present the ideal vantage point of the lake and the Victoria Glacier, which constantly replenishes its waters.
Day 9 Banff
Often described as the loveliest small town in North America, Banff rewards exploration in its own right.
Enjoy a day at leisure here - perhaps scale neighbouring Sulphur Mountain aboard a gondola for breathtaking views of the Bow Valley.
Day 10 Columbia Icefield to Jasper
Our journey continues north through the Rockies by way of the stunning Columbia Icefield.
Take an unforgettable ride on the Ice Explorer (weather dependent). An experienced driver guide shares a wealth of information about glaciers and icefields as the vehicle negotiates the surface of the ice itself.
We then continue beyond forests and jagged peaks to Jasper.
You stay at Lobstick Lodge (3*), Jasper Inn & Suites (3*) or Jasper Park Lodge (3*).
Day 11 Jasper
Take a full-day sightseeing tour of the environs of Jasper, including the intricate limestone gorge of Maligne Canyon, Medicine Lake (named for the local tribespeople’s beliefs that the waters had special healing powers) and the outstandingly beautiful Maligne Lake, one of the most photographed natural attractions in the world.
This evening we enjoy an included dinner with an interpretative talk.
Day 12 Sun Peaks
Another spectacular drive through regions of wild and rugged beauty dotted with aquamarine lakes and soaring mountains delivers us to the prestigious resort town of Sun Peaks.
Day 13 Vancouver
The final leg of our epic journey westwards takes us through ever-changing scenery to Vancouver, perhaps Canada’s most entrancing city.
Day 14 Vancouver
Sophisticated and spectacular, set between Grouse Mountain and the glittering waters of the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver mesmerises.
After an orientation tour of its highlights, you are invited to make your own discoveries.
Day 15 Vancouver
Spend the day at leisure.
Day 16 Vancouver
Transfer to the airport for your overnight return flight to the UK.
Day 17 UK
Upon arrival, your vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
