Holiday Reference: 16460
Take a trip to Calgary and Banff and discover the best of Canada’s awe-inspiring landscapes and cultural phenomenon all in one trip. From the incredible scenery of the Canadian Rockies to the electric ambience of ‘The Stampede City’, we can arrange this multi-centre trip to be as jam-packed or relaxing as you desire.
After arriving into Calgary Airport, pick up your rental car and drive straight to the mountain hamlet Banff to check into your hotel. Spend some time familiarising yourself with the small downtown area and then have dinner in one of the many local restaurants.
Today we suggest you get up early and head for famous Lake Louise. Make sure you make time for a stop at Moraine Lake – one of Canada’s most photographed cities - along the way. Hike around Lake Louise and make a stop at the picturesque observation points scattered around the area. Grab a quick lunch and then reward yourself with a relaxing soak at Banff Upper Hot Spring, before indulging in a leisurely dinner downtown.
Today we suggest you drive the Bow Valley Parkway to Johnston Canyon and hike down to the awe-striking lower falls. Journey back to Banff for the late afternoon and take in the view from the skies with a ride on the Banff Gondola. This evening, take some time to linger around your favourite parts of Banff and enjoy one last meal before you depart.
Today you will depart Banff and head back to Calgary. Have a good breakfast and pick up some picnic item, setting out by car to enjoy lunch at the beautiful Jack Lake. Arrive in Calgary and head to your hotel before enjoying an evening at leisure.
Spend today seeing the key sights of Calgary. We suggest you start off by taking in the view at the Calgary Tower, followed by some time exploring downtown on foot. For an unforgettable evening and dinner with a difference, do a Calgary Food Tour to try the finest local produce while learning more about this fascinating city.
If you’re a thrill-seeker, we suggest you spend the day today at WinSport. Packed with both summer and winter sports activities, this is the perfect a day full of adrenaline. Later, return to the city and do a Brewery Tour followed by dinner at a farm-to-table restaurant, such as the ever-popular Rouge.
Today, take in some of Calgary’s more traditional attractions in the astounding Calgary Zoo and, of course, the world- famous Calgary Stampede Park. After a tiring day full of fresh air, enjoy a delicious meal in one of the many downtown restaurants.
Today is your last full day to experience Calgary so absorb any remaining culture and return to your favourite sights one last time. For those looking to explore something new, we suggest the Glenbow Museum, Devonian Gardens and Prince Island Park.
Today you will return your rental car at the airport and board your flight back to the UK.
