  TOUR ITINERARY  
 
Day 1 (Vancouver to Kamloops - by Rocky Mountaineer Rail)
Travel aboard the Rocky Mountaineer from the coastal city of Vancouver to the interior's largest city,
Kamloops. On today's journey, you will see dramatic changes in scenery, from the lush green fields
of the Fraser River Valley, through forests and winding river canyons surrounded by the peaks of the
Coastal Mountains, to the desert-like environment of the interior. Highlights include the rushing
waters of Hell’s Gate in the Fraser Canyon and the steep slopes and snow sheds along the
Thompson River. Your day concludes as the Rocky Mountaineer travels along the shores of Kamloops
Lake and into your overnight destination of Kamloops.

Day 2 (Kamloops to Jasper - by Rocky Mountaineer Rail)
Your journey continues North and East to the mighty Canadian Rockies and the province of Alberta.
Once again you will be surrounded by dramatic scenery as you follow the banks of the North-
Thompson River through the Monashee and Cariboo Mountains, climbing even nearer to the high
peaks of the Continental Divide. Today's highlights include Mount Robson, the highest peak in the
Canadian Rockies at 3,954 metres (12,972 feet), Pyramid Falls, as well as the climb over
Yellowhead Pass into Jasper National Park. Your rail journey ends upon arrival in the resort town of
Jasper this evening. Overnight in Jasper.

Day 3 (Jasper to Banff - by Coach)
Start the morning with a refreshing hike in Maligne Canyon, one of the world's largest and deepest
limestone gorge criss-crossed by 6 narrow bridges. Head South on the Icefields Parkway to
experience the thundering waters of Athabasca Falls, picturesque Peyto Lake, and majestic Castle
Mountain. At the Columbia Icefield, ride the "Ice Explorer" on the Athabasca Glacier! Overnight in
Banff.

Day 4 (Banff National Park - by Coach)
Enjoy scenic views including the spectacular Lower Falls as you walk through Johnston Canyon. At
Lake Louise, stroll the shores of the glacier-fed lake and enjoy the atmosphere of the world-famous
