Scenic Canadian Rockies Fly Drive

Calgary * Banff * (Lake Louise) *Jasper * Sun Peaks * Whistler * Vancouver

A classic fly drive holiday through the beautiful Canadian Rockies - one of our most popular itineraries of Western Canada which visits the best of both Alberta and British Columbia including famous National Parks of Banff and Jasper before driving to Whistler, with its range of activities and then continues to the Pacific Coast to experience the beauty of Vancouver.

2018 - 13 days from £2,027 per person twin share + flights


Day 1 U.K. – Calgary

Your Canada holiday starts with a scheduled flight by Air Canada from London Heathrow to Calgary - regional departures are available on request. On arrival, you will be met and transferred to your downtown hotel. The rest of your day is at leisure.

Overnights (2): Calgary 

Day 2 – Calgary

Widely regarded as the "gateway to the Rockies", and home to the famous Stampede, Calgary is a stylish and friendly city. Your day is at leisure to start to explore this city of contrasts or for some shopping. Visit TD Square, the Eaton Centre or Hudson's Bay shopping areas, all of which are linked by Calgary's Plus 15 walkway system.

Day 3 - Calgary - Banff (77 miles)

The Canadian Rockies beckon. Collect your hire car from downtown before heading west into the Rockies and the pretty town of Banff.

Overnights (2): Banff

Day 4 – Banff

Sometimes regarded as one of the most attractive small towns in North America, Banff is compact enough to comfortably explore o­n foot. Situated o­n the doorstep of spectacular scenery, Banff nestles amidst the glory of the Canadian Rockies. With a wealth of attractions, ranging from the Hot Springs to the gondola ride to the summit of Sulphur Mountain, Banff boasts an attractive main street with numerous cafes and craft shops.

Day 5 - Banff - Jasper (175 miles)

Today enjoy a spectacular drive today through stunning scenery along the Icefields Parkway. En route visit the Columbia Icefield, the largest accumulation of snow and ice in the Rockies and take the "Ice Explorer" onto the Athabasca Glacier. Lake Louise, with its sparkling blue waters and mountain goats on Mount Fairview, is also worth a stop as are the thundering Athabasca Falls.

Overnights (2): Jasper 

Day 6: Jasper

Enjoy a day at leisure to delight in the peaceful, magnificent surroundings of Jasper National Park. A showcase of glacial blue lakes, long ridge-top hikes, canyons and a world-class golf resort, the town of Jasper is a sleepy sanctuary, known as a refuge for bighorn sheep, elk, deer and moose - all of which have been spotted wandering its streets. A trip to the exquisite Maligne Lake, the second largest glacier-fed lake in the Rockies, is well recommended where a cruise will take you past glacier-studded mountain peaks to world-famous Spirit Island.

Day 7 Jasper - Sun Peaks (276 miles)

Drive west and then south along the scenic Yellowhead Highway with views of Mt. Terry Fox, Tete Jaune Cache and, at 3954 m. Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies. A visit to Wells Gray Park, accessed from Clearwater, en route is recommended. Here you’ll discover a multitude of rapids, cataracts and waterfalls – two of the most spectacular being Dawson Falls and Helmcken Falls. Continue south towards Kamloops and to the mountain resort of Sun Peaks.

Overnight (1): Sun Peaks 

Day 8 - Sun Peaks - Whistler (193 miles)

Meander through "Gold Rush Country", passing Cache Creek and Lillooet. Both townships are rich in historic lore, dating back to the days when wagon trains and prospectors followed the trail to the Cariboo Gold Fields in the 1800s. However, Cache Creek owes its origins, and name, to the earlier fur traders who cached, or stored, their furs in the area before taking them east to trade. Continue your drive to the mountain resort of Whistler.

Overnights (2): Whistler

Day 9 – Whistler

Established in the late 19th Century, with just half a dozen wooden huts as a remote honeymoon resort beside a lake, Whistler today is a top mountain resort, nestling between world-renowned Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. The natural setting of Whistler offers numerous activities from winter sports to golf, hiking, fishing, canoeing and mountain biking in the summer. The pedestrian only Whistler Village has superb dining, intriguing shops, boutiques and sunny sidewalk cafes as well as, for the young at heart, a vibrant nightlife. 

Day 10 Whistler - Vancouver (78 miles)

Head south through Squamish on the beautiful Sea to Sky Highway, which skirts Howe Sound, into sparkling Vancouver. For those interested in railroad history Squamish is home to the West Coast Railroad Heritage Park with numerous locomotives, items of rolling stock and rescued railroad buildings from British Columbia. Once in Vancouver, return your hire car downtown after checking in to your hotel.

Overnights (2): Vancouver 

Day 11 - Vancouver Tour

Enjoy a fully narrated tour of dynamic Vancouver, nestled o­n the shores of the Strait of Georgia, in the shadow of the Coast Mountains. Travel through Vancouver’s past, present and future as you visit historic Gastown, colourful Chinatown and the lively entertainment district. Discover the beauty of 1000-acre Stanley Park and English Bay as well as the bustle of Robson Street in the heart of the shopping district. Continue to the prestigious Olde Shaughnessy residential mansions area and Granville Island. Optionally why not take a whale-watching excursion or a trip across to Vancouver Island and the city of Victoria. Looking for a unique experience, you could spend the day on a floatplane in the company of the flying "postie" delivering mail to the outlying islands.

Day 12 - Vancouver to UK

Time for last minute shopping and a final look at the stunning backdrop to Vancouver before being transferred by limousine to the airport and your overnight flight home.
