Day 1: Australia –  airplane-takeoff – Vancouver

Today, depart Australia to begin your Canada & Alaska holiday! On arrival after clearing customs and immigration formalities make your own way to your hotel. The hotel provides a 24/7 airport shuttle. You can request the hotel shuttle with the direct dial phones located on arrivals Level 2 of both the International and Domestic Terminal. On arrival at your hotel the rest of the day is at leisure. Tonight, your Webjet tour guide will welcome you to Canada.

Hotel: Accent Inn Richmond or similar

Day 2: Vancouver (B)

Today is a full day to either relax or explore Vancouver at your own pace!

Hotel: Accent Inn Richmond or similar

Day 3: Vancouver – Othello Tunnels – Kelowna (B)

This morning after breakfast, we leave Vancouver behind us and make our way across British Columbia towards the town of Hope. Enroute, we visit the famous Othello Tunnels. The Othello Tunnels are a series of old train tunnels and bridges that cut through the solid granite walls and pass over the wild Coquihalla River. They are located just east of the town of Hope, BC, in the Coquihalla Provincial Park.

The Coast Mountain Range proved quite a challenge to build a railway through and walking over the bridges in the Othello Tunnels area, it becomes quite evident how difficult it must have been. The sheer rock cliffs, the violently rushing water below, and the remoteness makes it seem incredible that any infrastructure could be built in such an environment, let alone over 100-years ago with limited engineering equipment.

We then continue into the wine region of the Okanagan valley. “The Okanagan”, also known as the Okanagan Valley and sometimes as the Okanagan Country, is a region located in British Columbia, defined by the basin of Okanagan Lake and the Canadian portion of the Okanagan River. It is part of the Okanagan Country, extending into the United States as Okanogan Country. The region’s main hub is Kelowna, our resting place for tonight. 

Hotel: Accent Inn Kelowna or similar

Day 4: Kelowna – Revelstoke National Park – Yoho National Park – Golden (B)

After breakfast, we embark on another day of sightseeing through the Trans-Canadian Highway taking us through some of Canada’s awe-inspiring National Parks. Our first park visit is to the mighty Revelstoke. Home to Canada’s only inland cedarhemlock rainforest, Mount Revelstoke is the only national park in Canada where you can summit a mountain five minutes from your vehicle. The Giant Cedars boardwalks invite us for a relaxing stroll, or we can enjoy a panoramic view & the meadows of subalpine wildflowers from the summit of Mount Revelstoke.

There is truly not a bad view to be had over this scenic stretch of the Trans-Canadian Highway, and following further West from Revelstoke National Park, we pass through Yoho National Park. Cree exclamation of awe, “Yoho” applies perfectly to this park’s big peaks, expansive glaciers, and impressive waterfalls. Add Yoho’s famous fossils and it’s easy to see why this park in the Canadian Rockies is part of a UNESCO World Heritage site. Although many of its highlights are accessible by road, Yoho is also a hiker’s dream and a railway buff’s delight.

Tonight, we overnight in the small mountain town of Golden.

Hotel: Days Inn or similar

Day 5: Golden – Columbia Icefields – Lake Louise – Banff Area (B)

After breakfast, we start by heading north on the “Icefields Parkway”, an exciting excursion atop the Athabasca Glacier. To travel the Icefields Parkway is to experience one of Canada’s national treasures. Stretching 232km (144mi.) through the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site, this world-class journey offers access to a vast wilderness of pristine mountain lakes, ancient glaciers and broad sweeping valleys. Our destination on this parkway, is the “Columbia Icefield”, the largest icefield in the Rocky Mountains of North America.

Optional Tour: This tour takes visitors onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier by Ice Explorer; a massive vehicle specially designed for glacial travel. An experienced driver-guide shares a wealth of fascinating information about glaciers, icefields and their impact on our environment during this one hour and 20 minute journey—Must be booked prior to departure.

We leave the Columbia Icefield Discovery Centre shortly after lunch, and head back South over the parkway towards Lake Louise, about a 2-hour drive. Lake Louise is often referred to as the ‘Diamond in the Wilderness’, and it is easy to see why.

In the afternoon, we leave Lake Louise behind us and head for our final destination, Canmore. The rest of the evening is at leisure.

Hotel: Coast Hotel or similar

Day 6: Banff Area (B)

Today is a free day to relax and explore this incredible alpine region. Banff is only a short distance away from Canmore with regular shuttles operating every 30 minutes or why not journey out on one of Canmore’s famed walking trails ranging from short strolls to longer hikes through the Alpine scenery.

Hotel: Coast Hotel or similar

Day 7: Canmore – Glacier National Park – Kamloops (B)

Today, we leave the Rocky Mountains behind us and make our way to the town of Kamloops. However, not before visiting our 3rd National Park, Glacier. Glacier National Park, not be confused with its twin in Montana, USA, offers us exceptional alpine scenery and deep valleys filled with ancient forests. It’s a year-round paradise for nature lovers.

We then continue our drive on the Trans-Canadian Highway towards the town of Kamloops. Located at the confluence of the South and North Thompson rivers in BC’s semi -arid grasslands, Kamloops is true Canadian heart land at it’s best.

Hotel: Doubletree Hotel or similar

Day 8: Kamloops – Whistler – Vancouver (B) 

After breakfast, we check-out of our hotel bright and early today, as an exciting journey back into British Columbia takes us to Whistler!

After arriving in Whistler, you will enjoy some time off to eat or stroll around this picturesque mountain town. Whistler is only about 2 hours North of Vancouver, and roughly about 4 hours West of Kamloops. Over two million people visit Whistler annually, primarily for alpine skiing and snowboarding and, in Summer, mostly mountain biking. Its pedestrian village centre has won numerous design awards and Whistler has been voted among the top destinations in North America by major ski magazines since the mid-1990s. 

After lunch, we leave Whistler behind and continue straight onwards towards Vancouver. Along Highway 99, between Horseshoe Bay & Squamish, has to be one of the most beautiful roads in the area. With the ocean glimmering on the left and the mountains rising on the right, it is truly enchanting.

Hotel: Accent Inn Richmond or similar
