The World Next Door

It’s not just the scenery that evokes superlatives on this Alberta and British Columbia tour in Canada’s alpine playgrounds. In this Canada vacation package, it’s also its regal resorts that inspire with a tradition of hospitality and service in unsurpassed settings...

From the castle-like Fairmont Banff Springs hotel, lakeside Chateau Lake Louise, crystalline Sparkling Hill Resort & Spa, and The Fairmont Whistler to the grand Fairmont Empress and the Four Seasons Waterfront Hotel – along with activities unique to life in each destination. Think a float trip on the Bow River, a drive on Icefields Parkway and a glacier ride in Banff National Park; a choice of a distillery tour or a nature walk in Vernon;  visits to a wildlife park and First Nations cultural center in British Columbia; a wine tasting lunch in the vineyard-rich Okanagan Valley and discovery of Whistler, your way; and a private whale watching charter, visit to The Butchart Gardens and a floatplane excursion on the Canadian coast (weather permitting).

Explore Whistler by gondola

Day 8

If soaring over stunning 360˚ alpine views has some appeal...

...then a trip aboard the Peak-to-Peak Whistler gondola is the perfect choice on Day 8. From mountain peaks to glacial valleys, soar over a pristine alpine landscape of forested valleys carved by glacial forces where pine trees rule, glacial lakes sparkle, forests harbor wildlife and the mountains envelop you. The gondola is a marvel of engineering in itself... and did we mention the views are astounding?

Private whale-watching cruise off Victoria, BC

Day 6

A whale of a cruise off Vancouver Island

A whale-watcher’s paradise, the waters off Victoria at the tip of Vancouver Island are home to a wealth of marine life. Along with seals, porpoises, sea lions and countless seabirds, there’s a population of resident killer whales (orcas); humpbacks, the region’s largest whale, singing loudly to announce their oversized presence; minke, the smallest of the locals here, also quite vocal; and migrating gray whales, often surfacing close enough for a friendly hello during your private whale-watching cruise by Eagle Wing Tours. Climb aboard their cozy, semi-covered catamaran 4 Ever Wild – offering multiple outdoor and inside viewing options, onboard restrooms, comfortable leather seating and more – for an enriching, inspiring and unforgettable nature-viewing experience.

Experience exquisite floral landscapes at The Butchart Gardens

Day 11

A flight of fancy...

Over a century ago, one very enterprising Mrs. Jennie Butchart transformed an abandoned limestone quarry on her family’s Victoria estate into a sunken garden of world renown. Her goal, at first, was to hide the hideous excavation from sight. As she covered the tall mounds of dirt with terraced rock gardens, and dangled ivy over the sides of the pit, her imagination took root along with her flowers. She invited friends to marvel at her horticultural masterpiece over tea, extending her hospitality to a growing number of visitors over the years, a gesture that earned her the community’s best citizen award in 1930. While many think of her as an accomplished gardener and consummate hostess, we know that she was also a very adventurous lady who enjoyed ballooning and flying. Which is why, when we fly our guests on a floatplane from Victoria, home to The Butchart Gardens, over the picturesque Gulf Islands to Vancouver, we think she’d be pretty delighted indeed.

Sparkling Hill Resort

Nights 5 and 6

A premier resort that's a destination in itself...

Stunning views... peace and quiet... and first-class service are hallmarks of Sparkling Hill Resort overlooking Lake Okanagan in British Columbia's beautiful Okanagan region (known for fruit orchards and wineries). Enjoy stunning Monashee Mountain or Okanagan Lake views – and the window walls can be opened to instantly transform your room into an outdoor oasis and let fresh mountain air in – beautifully appointed with Swarovski crystal architecture and custom soaking tubs... farm-to-table-style dining... the state-of-the-art health facilities at KurSpa, offering a range of amenities and services that combine a European-style approach to wellness hospitality with cutting-edge crystal architecture and state-of-the-art spa facilities... and much more.

I think the biggest compliment we could ever give a tour organization as Tauck is to say we couldn’t have planned or arranged a better trip, from the amazing accommodations, to the gourmet meals to the incredible sights. I really hadn’t expected to enjoy a trip like this as much as I did. I usually prefer the city trips. This was a welcome surprise.

Most Memorable Moment:

While the scenery at every stop and along the way was amazing, the view of Lake Louise, for me, could not be surpassed. And being able to see the magnificence from the comfort of our room just added to the experience.

Very informative, with a great trip guide, and bus driver. Both were with us from the start to the end of our trip. The side trips that were included were informative with fantastic scenery. Some negatives were several 5:30 - 6am early rises, and a couple of long days on the bus!

Most Memorable Moment:

All the accommodations and the areas they were located. Very exciting and interesting. Overall the whole trip was memorable, and would recommend it to anyone.
