Canada is a country of wide open spaces and offers a world of contrasts no more so than in Canada’s West, home to the beautiful harbour cities of Vancouver and Victoria and the majestic Rocky Mountains with the picturesque communities of Banff, Lake Louis and Jasper and the bustling oil city of Calgary with its famous once a year “stampede”.
RAIL & COACH TOURS
Board the Rocky Mountaineer, Canada’s own VIA Rail or take one of our many coach tours to explore these spectacular mountains, lakes and glaciers and no visit to this area would be complete without travelling the Ice Fields Parkway one of the world’s most scenic routes.
SELF DRIVE & MOTOR HOMES
Alternatively you can enjoy the experience of fully independent travel using one of our car or motor home rentals. Take one of our pre arranged self drive programmes or let us customise an itinerary for you and pre book your accommodation along the way from our extensive range of hotels, wilderness lodges and ranches.
No introduction to Western Canada would be complete without mention of it’s fantastic opportunities for wild life and adventure experiences either on the west coast or at Churchill on the Hudson Bay. Wildlife viewing along the west coast features bear, whales, orcas, otter, seals, dolphins, sea lions wolf, cougar, lynx and fox not to mention the eagles, hawks and the multitudes of sea birds of all varieties.
Set in pristine wilderness surroundings many of our premium wild life viewing lodges are nevertheless remarkably easy to get to from the major cities, the last leg usually only involving a relatively short boat or float plane trip.
Visits to the unique Hudson Bay area necessarily involve a longer journey either by train or plane there to see the iconic polar bears, beluga whales and perhaps to take a ride or overnight on the famous “Tundra Buggy”.
For the adventurous there is a world of choice from sea kayaking, heli hiking, mountain bike riding, canoeing, fishing and much more.
Finally your Canada visit does not necessarily have to be confined to the warmer months as we offer a fascinating Winter Canada programme for those who would like to experience a real snowy Christmas, go dog sledding and view the eerie Northern Lights.
