All the highlights of Western Canada in one self-drive tour. Enjoy the wines of Kelowna, a stay at Emerald Lake Lodge, leisure time in Banff and Jasper NP's and drive the Icefields Parkway. Explore Wells Gray Provincial Park and Whistler before heading over to Vancouver Island's Pacific Rim National Park near Tofino and a final two nights in Victoria.

Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:

When in Jasper, be sure to make the drive to spectacular Maligne Lake - it was one of the highlights of my visit.  Once there walk some of the trails along the shoreline or take a scenic cruise.
