Explore five Rocky Mountain national parks – Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, Waterton Lakes and a Glacier National Park tour – on a journey to the best of Western Canada's national parks.

The World Next Door

Explore five National Parks – from the inside, out... craggy peaks, buffalo jumps, stunt-riding cowboys and vintage “Jammer” buses set the tone throughout the timberlands of the Canadian Rockies and Montana’s Glacier National Park... Kootenay’s canyons and hot springs... alpine vistas and glaciers along the Icefields Parkway... a cruise on ice-blue mountain lakes... a ride in an Ice Explorer on Athabasca Glacier... luxury mountain resorts in Banff National Park, Jasper National Park and at Lake Louise... and so much more. 

Kick up your heels at a Wild West welcome dinner where cowboy stunt riders and Calgary fiddlers raise the bar in uplifting live entertainment. See the vertical drop that spelled doom for buffalo being hunted by the Blackfoot people for some 5,500 years and enjoy soul-stirring views of an alpine lake in Glacier National Park. Red "Jammers" have been the mode of choice for travelers “going-to-the-sun” since the 1930s, the timberlands lead the way to the mountains, canyons and hot springs of Kootenay, scenic landscapes provide a natural high on a drive along Icefields Parkway and wilderness resorts from Lake Louise to Jasper and Banff national parks ensure the “peak” of awe-inspiring discoveries.

Explore Glacier National Park in a vintage touring car

Day 3

Red "Jammers" have been the mode of choice for travelers along the famed “Going-to-the-Sun” track since the 1930s...

In the 1930s, visitors to Glacier National Park toured in style aboard flashy red coaches called “Jammers,” affectionately named for the noise of jamming gears the drivers frequently made while tooling the buses around mountain roads. A fleet of these vintage vehicles are still in operation, and still equipped with canvas tops which (weather permitting) can be rolled back to give you a better view of the spectacular scenery, and a timeless sense of freedom. And you'll get a taste of 1930s touring aboard one traveling the "Going-to-the-Sun" engineering marvel of a road.

Enjoy a private Canadian Wild West welcome reception and dinner

Day 1

To fully appreciate Western Canada's scenic beauty you need the stories...

A private welcome reception and dinner at Heritage Park Historical Village is a perfect introduction to Western Canada. Canada's largest living history museum brings the region's history, from the 1860s through the 1950s, to life through knowledgeable interpreters, a variety of transportation (steam train, horse-drawn wagons, a paddle wheeler...) and historical exhibits. A special private evening in a western town includes a Wild West cowboy stunt show... toe-tapping hot fiddle music by The Calgary Fiddlers... a reception, dinner and more... for the perfect introduction.

Spend a night at Many Glacier Hotel, only open three months a year

Night 2

If solitude in a remote natural alpine setting sounds appealing...

Many Glacier Hotel is the largest hotel within Glacier National Park; the historic, Swiss-themed hotel dates back to 1914, built by the Great Northern Railway. Its location on Swiftcurrent Lake, with panoramic views of Grinnell Point and Mt. Henkle, make it unique in the Rockies. The hotel is surrounded by panoramic beauty – a harmonious blend of nature's best that captures the imagination. The cozy guest rooms reflect both the era in which the lodge was built and the rustic area in which it lies.
