GLACIER NATIONAL PARK & THE CANADIAN ROCKIES - 2017

Tour Code - CS 9 days - CALGARY to CALGARY $3149 AUD
This Canadian Rockies & Glacier National Park tour delivers the pristine wilderness of several national parks and the soaring beauty of the Rockies on both sides of the Canada/U.S. border. In Canada, travel to Waterton Lakes National Park, an UNESCO World Heritage Site with rugged mountains and beautiful water. Visit the historic mining town of Fort Steele; Kootenay National Park; and Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, another UNESCO World Heritage Site with one of the world’s oldest and best-preserved buffalo jumps. Also in Canada, stay two nights in both Banff and Jasper National Parks. In Banff, enjoy a ride on the Banff gondola up Sulphur Mountain and leisure time to explore on your own. As you head to Jasper National Park, stop for a memorable ride aboard an Ice Explorer at the 1,200-foot-thick Columbia Icefield. In Jasper National Park, journey to Maligne Lake, the largest glacially formed lake in the Canadian Rockies, and take a cruise to Spirit Island. Also visit gorgeous Lake Louise, another highlight of your vacation. In Montana, visit stunning Glacier National Park, where you’ll enjoy a thrilling drive on the spectacular Going-to-the-Sun Road aboard a famous, vintage red “Jammer" bus. The Going-to-the-Sun Road is one of North America’s most spectacular drives. It crosses 6,664-foot-high Logan Pass and offers alpine scenery where jagged mountain peaks, deep green forests, pristine lakes, and meadows dominate the landscape. A breathtaking experience indeed!

On this Canadian Rockies & Glacier National Park tour, Globus has also arranged special experiences for you. In Glacier National Park, enjoy a made-from-scratch piece of huckleberry pie or ice cream. Or how about entertainment by a local cowboy poet in Calgary? The region’s Western heritage will come alive through the cowboy poet’s stories and songs.
