THE CANADIAN ROCKIES—a grand outdoor wonderland of dazzling peaks, lush alpine meadows, turquoise lakes, virgin forest, towering waterfalls and epic wildlife. Start in Waterton Lakes National Park, where Alberta’s sprawling prairies meet the towering mountains, and discover Head-Smashed-in Buffalo Jump—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—meet a Blackfoot guide to learn about the culture of the Plains people. Experience Glacier National Park—magnificent and pristine—whose over one million acres are the only place in the lower 48 where grizzlies still roam in abundance. Travel up Going-to-the-Sun Road (“a strong contender for the most spectacular road in America,—Lonely Planet) to the Continental Divide with a landscape of impressive glaciers, wildflower-strewn valleys and cascading waterfalls. In Banff enjoy stops at Bow Falls and Surprise Corner for its picture perfect panoramic views. We’ll traverse the Icefields Parkway (ancient glaciers and dramatic waterfalls), see the glowing turquoise water of Peyto Lake, trek the Athabasca Glacier on a mammoth ice explorer, and stop at Chateau Lake Louise, surrounded by a panorama of chiseled mountains. An outdoor wonderland, indeed!
