Hiking at Lake Louise and Jasper National Park

Trekking through the Rockies' wilderness wonderlands

Breathe in the fresh mountain air and expect to see some pretty dramatic sights – not to mention the moose, deer, bighorn sheep or mountain goats you might spy along the way – as you join our local guide on a hike along the shores of shimmering Lake Louise that's alive with wilderness fun in Banff National Park. More hiking opportunities await in magnificent Maligne Canyon and at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in the heart of Jasper National Park, as you explore this amazing natural playground with your family!

Whitewater rafting adventure on the Athabasca River

Day 4

Making a splash on the Athabasca River

Pile into a rubber raft with your family and new Tauck Bridges friends for an adrenaline-pumping ride along the whitewaters of Alberta's glacier-fed Athabasca River, fresh from the Columbia Icefield, where the wilderness and the sparkling waters will take your breath away. Check out some waterfalls and other amazing scenery on the way. It's a perfect adventure for beginners... and experienced rafters too!

A "cool ride" across Athabasca Glacier

Day 5

Frozen magic aboard an Ice Explorer

Glaciers owned the landscapes of the Canadian Rockies for centuries, "freeze-framing" the wilderness you see today. So how do you walk on a glacier whose ice is hundreds of years old? Very carefully! Actually, on your family's visit to the Columbia Icefield's Athabasca Glacier in Jasper National Park, a giant Ice Explorer vehicle takes you to a spot where you can get out for a slippery stroll across glacial ice more than 400 years old! But if you hear ice cracking, don't worry... it's just a glacier thing.

Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

Day 1

At Lake Louise, a true gem in the Canadian Rockies

Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in Banff National Park was originally built in 1890 as a magnet for well-heeled travelers – a "railway hotel" designed to accommodate the wealthy visitors who began flocking to Banff in the Canadian Rockies in the late 19th century. Offering your family the most modern amenities – including an indoor pool and a state-of-the-art fitness center – in one of the most picturesque lakeside settings on Earth, the "diamond in the wilderness" is one of the most-frequently photographed hotels in the world.

This was the first Tauck Bridges trip. Each member of our family found something special and memorable from the scenery, which is magnificent, to the varied and fun activities. This was tour # 15 for me and my husband. Unfortunately, the farewell dinner was held in the last hotel and it was a very unpleasant end to the trip.

Most Memorable Moment:

The way the whole group bonded over the Canadian duck pin bowling!

About the third day our family looked at each other and said this is the best trip we have ever taken. Each day after it got better and better. Our guide brought us all together as family. Each day was planned to perfection. If you have a chance take this trip. You won't be disappointed.
