Western Pre-Cruise

Calgary – Vancouver (9 Days/8 Nights) 

Western Pre-Crusie MapThis popular one-way tour leads from the Rockies to the Pacific and works spectacularly as a tour that introduces you to Western Canada before a cruise program. 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. Afterwards, you drive along the Yellowhead highway and have stunning views of Mount Robson, as you continue to make your way down to Kamloops. The next day 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.
