  TOUR ITINERARY  
 
Day 1 (Vancouver to Kamloops - by Rocky Mountaineer Rail)
Travel aboard the Rocky Mountaineer from the coastal city of Vancouver to Kamloops in the heart of British Columbia’s
interior. 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 and Cascade 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 ever 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) and Pyramid Falls, as well as the climb
over the Yellowhead Pass and 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 gorges,
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 Chateau Lake Louise. Afternoon
highlights include Moraine Lake, the Banff Springs Hotel, the Upper Hot Springs and the views from the top of Sulphur
Mountain. Overnight in Lake Louise.

Day 5 (Lake Louise to Kelowna - by Coach)
Re-board your coach and head west, following the Trans-Canada highway back into British Columbia. Catch a
glimpse of the Spiral Tunnels in Yoho National Park, then follow the historic route of the Canadian Pacific Railway
as it climbs through Rogers Pass, high in the rugged selkirk Mountains. In the afternoon, arrive in Kelowna, in the
heart of the Okanagan Valley, famous for its orchards and wineries. Check into your hotel and enjoy the rest of your
day strolling the beach at Okanagan Lake or exploring Kelowna core lined with shops, parks, and outdoor cafes.

Day 6 (Kelowna to Vancouver - by Coach)
After breakfast, explore the Okanagan Valley's fruit-growing history at one of Kelowna's oldest operating orchards.
Take a free wagon tour and enjoy a complementary tasting of apple ice cider. Next head to Mission Hill Eastate
Winery and enjoy a tour and tasting, followed by lunch on the outdoor patio with gorgeous views across Okanagan
Lake. Your trip continues through the cascade mountains, and concludes in Vancouver in the evening.
