With so much to do and so much to see, there is no time to be wasted in Western Canada. A journey up into the Canadian Rockies is a must where glistening glaciers and misty alpine lakes become the backdrop to your everyday along the Icefields Parkway, one of the most picturesque highways in the world. Marvel at the beauty of Lake Louise, one of the most famous lakes on earth and go grizzly or black bear spotting in Banff National Park, Canada’s oldest park - or experience it all from the warmth of the glass-roofed Rocky Mountaineer. Over in Victoria, explore the cobbled streets by traditional horse-drawn carriage and go whale watching just off-shore. And when you’ve had your fill of Japa dogs (Vancouver’s original Japanese inspired hot dogs), boat through the waters of Vancouver Island to spot whales, elephant seals and porpoises. Visiting in July? Don your boots and blue jeans - the Calgary Stampede is a rodeo you don’t want to miss.
The best way to explore Western Canada’s quirky towns, lakes and national parks is by fly drive, when you can travel by hire car at your own pace, stopping whenever and wherever you want. Give our Canada Travel Specialists a call to plan your perfect Fly Drive itinerary.
