Vancouver’s North Coast Mountains are just the appetizer for this journey from the Pacific Coast to the Canadian Rockies. Beginning in beautiful Vancouver, travellers will hit the ocean in search of whales before heading east into the enveloping mountain wilderness of Banff and Jasper National Parks, where sulphur springs, canoeing excursions, and glaciers older than time abound. And since we camp out most nights, you’re guaranteed maximum natural contact at a minimal price. You might even find yourself face-to-face with a moose, deer, or maybe even a bear. The Great Outdoors — now all yours.
