Rockies to the Pacific

Calgary – Vancouver (14 Days/13 Nights) Rockies to the Pacific

This popular one-way tour leads from the Rockies to the Pacific but can just as well be enjoyed the other way around. Starting off in Calgary, visitors begin their journey right in the hear of the Rocky Mountains, taking in the spectacular sights of snow-capped Mountains, dramatic vistas, glacier-fed rivers and abundant wildlife. Travelling further, Wells Gray Park invites visitors to a memorable, short canoe trip in its pristine wilderness. The year-round resort town of Whistler is a popular mountain playground with international travelers. A scenic ferry ride to Vancouver Island gives way to a visit to Victoria, the charming capital of British Columbia, and attracts visitors with its elegant British flair. The journey ends in Vancouver, the”pearl of the Pacific”, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Coastal Mountains, and countless sights and attractions await to be discovered.
