Experience the natural beauty of western Canada on this 9-day escorted tour from Vancouver to Calgary. We’ll begin in the “jewel” of North America’s Pacific Coast – Vancouver where we’ll explore city highlights like Stanley Park, Robson Street, Gastown, and more. We’ll continue to the “Cowboy Country” ranch land of Kamloops and the Canadian Rockies’ largest park – Jasper National Park – where we’ll take in the crystal blue-green lakes, and snow-capped mountain peaks, and visit the Columbia Icefield. We’ll visit iconic Banff and Lake Louise which offer breathtaking beauty and enjoy an excursion to Yoho National Park which offers spectacular waterfalls and soaring peaks. Our tour comes to an end in Calgary where we’ll explore the city’s downtown area, the Stampede Grounds, and more!

I am very glad I choose to travel with Smartours. The tour director was excellent, very friendly and accommodating. The itinerary covered all the highlights plus a few extra sites. The hotels were for the most part satisfactory. If you want luxury hotels and included dinners, Smartours is not for you.

We greatly enjoyed this tour. It was well planned, we got to see all the areas we wanted to. We could have used more time to stay in Banf or Jasper. The tour director and the driver were very skilled, professional and caring. Very good experience.


This was a terrific trip with an excellent guide. We really got to experience the Canadian Rockies with all of its glory. We even got to meet a retired Canadian Mounty Police Officer! The accommodations were generally very comfortable. It’s an active trip but one that can be balance to your abilities. Luckily we saw lots of wild life and the weather was wonderful. The price was wonderful compared with many other groups.
