Day 1 - Banff to Sun Peaks

Depart Banff and travel along the scenic Bow Valley Parkway through the heart of Banff National Park. Stand on the shores of Lake Louise, surrounded by towering mountains, and take a quick stroll around the lake. Continue into the province of British Columbia, as the highway ascends through the spectacular, untouched wilderness of Rogers’s Pass. Stop for lunch in the alpine town of Revelstoke before continuing towards Okanagan Lake Country. The landscape transitions from rugged peaks to forested hills and expansive lakes. Continue through the desert-like hills surrounding Kamloops, as the road climbs through the Shuswap Highlands into the mountain region of Sun Peaks.  

Day 2 – Sun Peaks to Vancouver

Continue your journey toward Vancouver, passing from forested mountains into the dramatic desert scenery of British Columbia’s cowboy country.  Follow the Thompson River Valley through Spence's Bridge, a small town established during the Cariboo Gold rush of the 1850s. Continue south toward Hell’s Gate and the spectacular Fraser Canyon. Lunch and a tram ride at Hell’s Gate offer a chance to witness the power of water as it churns and pushes through the narrow Hell’s Gate gorge. Following lunch, wind along the mighty Fraser River through lush pastoral valleys, passing into the urban centres of Abbotsford, Langley, and Surrey. Conclude in the coastal city of Vancouver, surrounded by spectacular ocean views and the impressive peaks of the Coast Mountains.
