Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park
July 3rd through the 10th, 2016
Join Jeanne in the summer of 2016 as she takes you on a magnificent adventure across some of the most spectacular natural areas of the North American continent. You’ll get up close and personal with fields of ice, rushing streams, lovely waterfalls, glacial peaks, stampeding chuck wagons, and towering summits. These are just a few of the scenic wonders awaiting you in the Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park. And perhaps the highlight of this adventure will be the world famous and best known rodeo, the Calgary Stampede.
The soaring majesty of the Canadian Rockies and the brilliance of Montana’s Glacier National Park will be on full display as you begin your Canadian adventure in the stunning town of Banff, Alberta.
A wonderful day of sightseeing awaits as we set out along the unforgettable Icefields Parkway with its lofty waterfalls, rushing rivers, glacial peaks, imposing cliffs and snowcapped mountain ranges. We’ll visit the Columbia Icefield and choose a fun ride across this mass of glacial ice which is over 1,000 feet thick – the largest accumulation of ice south of the Arctic Circle; or, take a walk on the Glacier Skywalk to experience the breathtaking views of the Sunwapta Valley and witness this dramatic landscape from the glass-floored platform. This afternoon, stop at stunning Peyto Lake, a turquoise glacier-fed lake that evokes pure serenity. Better be on the lookout for Grizzly bears and Elk on the return to Banff.
On our fourth day we’ll travel south to Waterton Lakes National Park. We’ll pass through quaint villages and travel roads sometimes traversed by grizzly bears, black bears, mountain goats, cougars, wolves, moose and elk. We’ll spend the next few nights at the stunning Prince of Wales Hotel.
