Day 1 Arrive Vancouver
On arrival at the Vancouver International Airport, take a private vehicle to your downtown Vancouver hotel.

Day 2 Vancouver Sightseeing
Today you'll learn how Vancouver’s fascinating past and present come together in the tour that traverses through urban cityscapes, seaside parks and ancient rain forests. Begin with the highlights of downtown, including Canada Place, the Arts and Financial Districts, and Robson Street. Enter the 1,000-acre urban rainforest, Stanley Park, where you visit the First Nations Totem Poles. Continue across the Lions Gate Bridge to Vancouver’s scenic North Shore and the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Don’t miss the impressive collection of First Nations artwork and the historic Story Centre. From the spectacular Cliffwalk, gaze out over the Capilano River before you walk across the Capilano Suspension Bridge to the other side. Return to downtown Vancouver and get ready to engage all your senses as you step out into Granville Island Market. Carry on through bustling Chinatown and continue to historic Gastown, the heart of Vancouver. The rest of the day is at your leisure.

Day 3 Vancouver to Jasper (Rail)
This afternoon, check in at Pacific Central Station and board VIA Rail’s ‘Canadian’ for the famous train journey to the majestic Canadian Rockies. Step back in time to the days of classic rail travel, riding in the original stainless steel ‘streamliner’ railcars made famous by the ‘Canadian’ in the 1950s. Each has been restored with air conditioning, a café car, lounge car, and access to the dome car.

Exclusive to Prestige Class: Guests traveling in Prestige Class enjoy an unparalleled level of elegance, comfort and privileged service. Relax in your own private cabin with a double bed, flat-screen TV and shower plus access to the bar and lounge areas and perks like priority boarding, reserved seats and a personal concierge. Don’t forget to visit the Dome Car – the true essence of traveling by train is all in the panoramic views.

Day 4 Canadian Rockies by daylight onboard VIA Rail. Arrive Jasper late morning (Rail)
Rise to the snowy peaks of the Canadian Rockies today as you arrive in Jasper and transfer to your hotel. The day is yours to explore this unique alpine community.

Day 5 Jasper Exploring
Experience the wonders of Maligne Canyon from the ground up! The canyon has withstood 10,000 years of erosion and has created a 50 meter gorge. Certified guides will lead your group along the frozen canyon floor and its ice-clad limestone walls while super soles and winter boots will keep you warm and secure.

Day 6 Jasper to Banff (Coach)
Travel southward along the Icefields Parkway to Banff. This spectacular drive through glacier country features massive snow-covered mountains, frozen waterfalls and broad-reaching valleys. Banff is situated in Banff National Park, a charming town with much to offer including winter walks, ice skating, world-class shopping and unique dining.

Day 7 Banff Sightseeing
A morning tour of the Banff area will take you to many of Banff’s landmarks and historical places. This will also be one of your best chances to see wildlife while in the park. Photo opportunities and short walks to viewpoints with your guide are abundant on this tour. Later this afternoon, make your own way to the stables, a short walk away from downtown. Your ride in a horse drawn sleigh will manifest the magic of winter.
