One of North America’s great unspoiled wildernesses, the Canadian Rockies offer bountiful rewards for outdoor-loving travelers.

What to Expect

Activity Level 3

Busy pacing may include multiple hotel changes plus long drives. Full days of touring will include 1-3 miles of walking per day, up to two hours, sometimes during the heat of the day. Travelers will need the ability to get on/off the motorcoach frequently, without assistance.

This trip involves considerable walking on uneven terrain in a natural environment. You should be in good physical condition to enjoy the tour to the fullest. Elevations at hotel locations are not severe, ranging from 3,400 ft. to 5,200 ft. The relatively high altitude reached on two excursions – Columbia Icefields (9,800 ft.) and Going-to-the-Sun Road (6,700 ft.) – could pose problems for guests with certain health conditions. You should consult your personal physician if you have concerns.
