Travel Itinerary

Destination 1: Vancouver

Majestic mountains, sparkling ocean, rainforests and beautiful foliage make Vancouver one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The Pearl of the Pacific is the first stop on your western adventure, and, rightfully, the best way to begin: whether enjoying Granville Island’s artful charm or Stanley Park’s limitless walking trails, this is a city that shines in its mix of the urban and the natural.

Destination 2: Chase

The petite village of Chase is known for its forestry and its charm. As a western gateway to the Shuswap Region, the town is quite ideal. But its activities extend beyond a simple stopover: include a variety of water activities, outdoor adventures, excellent shopping, arts and culture, and an array of superb culinary experiences all await you here.

Destination 3: Lake Louise

Situated in Alberta in Canada and in close proximity to the Trans-Canada Highway, Lake Louise is famous for its turquoise-sparkling waters. Your stop here will involve strolls along the riverside with countless photo opportunities, be it of the glistening lake itself or the Victoria Glacier above. No matter where you look, western Canada’s nature enraptures you strongly here.

Destination 4: Jasper

Jasper retains its timeless appeal as a peaceful, unpretentious former railway town that just happens to be set smack in the middle of some of the world's most gorgeous protected wilderness. Explore this town full of pristine adventure, whether paddling through crystal clear waters, hiking trails, and wildlife viewing. No matter the activity, let the Rockies surround you with their nestling qualities.

Destination 5: Prince George

Whether you’re after a bit of culture or history or keen on immersing yourself in the wilderness, there is a little something for everyone in Prince George. The Two Rivers Gallery is the perfect way to explore one of the most northern cities in Canada, a place where local meets global art. If you’re feeling more adventurous, freshwater fishing, hiking trails, and golf facilities also abound here. Cap it off with an amber sunset in the evening and you'll get the full Georgian experience.

Destination 6: Smithers

With the enchanting snow-capped Hudson Bay Mountain as its backdrop, the small northern British Columbian town of Smithers (population 6,000) is as welcoming as its vistas. Be sure to pay a visit to the Smithers Art Gallery the Driftwood Canyon Provincial Park, home to one of the world’s most significant fossil beds. Art or nature, Smithers delivers on both fronts.

Destination 7: Prince Rupert

Prince Rupert holds a variety of treasures, among them its charming downtown district. But this port city on Kaien Island has more than meets the eye: take a ‘flightseeing’ tour of remote coastal villages on the island, as well as the grizzly and black bear sanctuary in Khutzeymateen Valley, and the Cambria Icefields. Explore the Museum of Northern British Columbia if you are feeling something more cultural.

Destination 8: Port Hardy

The Cape Scott Provincial Park, North Coast Trail and British Columbia Marine Trail offer spectacular wilderness adventures in Port Hardy. Here, you can kayak, take world-class scuba diving tour, fish, and camo. Black bear and bald eagles sightings and a host of other fauna and birdlife—so keep an eye out.

Destination 9: Tofino

Tofino is located in the middle of the Clayoquot Sound, a UNESCO biosphere reserve whose scenic beauty and ecological diversity provide excellent conditions for all kinds of activities. Leisure activities range from fishing and kayaking, whale, bear and bird watching, camping and hiking, to storm observation and guided cultural hikes over the First Nations. Discover why this remote town is affectionately called the “Tree Loving Capital of the World.”

Destination 10: Victoria

Situated on the southern end of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, the charming town of Victoria serves as the provincial capital. Numerous outdoor activities, heritage architecture, and its colourful gardens continue the natural feel of western Canada, but with an urban touch: the city’s castles, mansions, and fish restaurants all make you feel like you’re in a perfect mix of the old and the new.

Destination 11: Richmond

Your trip ends in Richmond, part of the Metro Vancouver area. Though close to its bigger brother, this city’s pristine environs are networked with an array of walking trails that take in woodlands, meadows, beaches and coast, and offer the chance to encounter the area’s rich wildlife. It’s the perfect way to cool down after a stunning trip across the heart of western Canada’s natural offerings.
