  • Banff National Park is an incredible wilderness nestled in the heart of the Rockies. Our morning tour will take in the Hoodoos of Bow Valley, imposing spires of rock carved by wind and water, and Surprise Corner, so named because as we drive out of Banff, the view suddenly opens into a fantastic mountain vista, featuring the famous Banff Springs Hotel. Later, we'll take the Banff Gondola to the top of Sulphur Mountain for sensational views. Get to know your travelling companions over drinks and an included dinner this evening.
  • Day 3 Banff

    In 2011, Jasper was designated a dark sky preserve, an area where almost no artificial light is visible at night. This evening, you could choose to join our optional excursion, the Jasper Dark Sky Planetarium and Telescope Experience. You'll take a virtual tour of the night sky in a 50-seat domed theatre and then step outside to see the largest telescope in the Rockies. Experts will offer you tips on astrophotography and, if conditions are favourable, you will have a chance to view the night sky for yourself through a telescope.
