First Passage to the West Discovery Calgary

First Passage to the West Discovery Calgary I Hero

Independent Tours

This independent road and rail tour takes you west from downtown Calgary to the bright lights of Vancouver. In between you’ll get to experience the snow-capped peaks, glacial lakes and weather-worn rock formations of Banff and Yoho National Parks. You’ll have plenty of time to explore independently with days at leisure spent on the shores of Lake Louise and around the mountain town of Banff, adding to the air of easy-going touring. For many, the thrill of riding on the Rocky Mountaineer train from Lake Louise to Vancouver will be the absolute highlight. This is where you’ll experience ever-changing scenery as the British Columbian interior morphs from dusty cattle-grazing plains to lush green valleys. You’ll also enjoy overnight stays in a variety of superior or deluxe hotels, depending on whether you choose to travel in SilverLeaf or GoldLeaf Service onboard the Rocky Mountaineer. This is for anyone wishing to discover Western Canada at a laid back and immersive pace.
