Do More in the Canadian Rockies
I work with local tour companies to curate custom vacation packages in different Canadian Rockies destinations, making it easy to continue exploring using Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper or Vancouver as your base. These are amazing journeys to add on to your Rocky Mountaineer train journey.
Here are four great ideas.
1. Explore more in the national parks: Spend the day exploring the highlights of Banff or Jasper national parks, explore the wild beauty of Maligne Lake, or take a walk on the Athabasca glacier.
2. See the Rockies from the sky: Take in the view from up above with a panoramic helicopter tour, giving you a dramatic appreciation for the rugged landscapes of the Canadian Rockies.
3. Explore Vancouver’s North Shore: Sway your way across the Capilano Suspension Bridge and walk among the treetops before heading up to Grouse Mountain to see the resident grizzly bears and enjoy the stunning views back to downtown Vancouver.
4. Grab some island time: Take a trip over to Vancouver Island to visit the world-famous Butchart Gardens, and the charming capital city of Victoria.
And if you are a golfer, remember there is amazing golf opportunities throughout the Rockies. Not only do you get long days for late night golf in June and July, but your shots will be longer and truer at the higher altitudes! The scenery is breathtaking with amazing panoramas and sometimes you might experience some interesting wildlife.
