Departing June 20, 2017 7 Days
We will fly to lovely Spokane, Washington today. Next, we'll take a short tour to beautiful Coeur d'Alene for the evening.
We'll tour north, today, through Sandpoint and on into the British Columbia Rockies. While not as famous as the mountains in Alberta, brace yourself for some spectacular scenery as we view Alpine-like peaks, pristine lakes, wonderful waterfalls, scenic ski resorts and rejuvenating hot springs.
It doesn't get much better than this! At least until tomorrow.
We'll view the peaks, valleys, lakes and glaciers of Kootenay, and Banff National Parks. Moraine Lake is so spectacular that it was featured for years on the Canadian $5 bill. Lake Louise is world famous for its setting next to the Victoria Glacier.
Today we'll tour one of the most famous highways in the world, the Banff/Jasper Highway.
Along the way, we'll see over 30 glaciers including the Athabasca Glacier in the Columbia Icefields, Peyto Lake, Athabasca Falls, Pyramid and Patricia Lakes and so much more.
This will be a full but wondrous day.
We leave Banff this morning, and drive past cattle ranches, oil wells, and the beautiful yellow fields of rapeseed en-route to Calgary, home of the Calgary Stampede.
Later, we'll drive on to Waterton Lakes National Park, the Canadian side of Glacier National Park. Wait 'til you see the unique Prince of Wales Hotel...one of a kind!
We'll cross the border back into the States, this morning, and enter Glacier National Park on its east side. A highlight of the day will be the tour through the park on the Going to the Sun Highway...an experience that you'll never forget. You'll love the hotel which is right on Flathead Lake.
We'll be returning home, today, with a
collage of memories of the sights, sounds, and experiences of the
