Western Canada Discovery SELF DRIVE Land Tour

Canada’s Western Discovery SELF DRIVE TOUR

This Self Drive Tour can be started on any day after your cruise disembarkation in Vancouver. So why not consider 1 or 2 post cruise nights in Vancouver before collecting your Rental Car?

Day 1: VANCOUVER

Arrive in Vancouver, pick up your car and proceed to your hotel. The remainder of your evening is at leisure to create your own urban adventure amid the stores, parks, restaurants, theatres and various other attractions of downtown Vancouver.

Day 2: VANCOUVER - WHISTLER

Depart Vancouver and follow the spectacular Sea to Sky Highway to the resort of Whistler. En route, admire Shannon Falls and explore the dramatic canyons, ravines and lofty peaks of Garibaldi Provincial Park. Once in Whistler, located at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, you might enjoy a hike along the endless trails and high alpine meadows.

Day 3: WHISTLER - CLEARWATER

Follow the Cariboo Highway north, visit towns and villages that echo the past, as this route was travelled by gold seekers and traders during the famous Cariboo Gold Rush in the late 1800s. Drive through the region known as Lakes Country, towards the breath taking vistas and unspoiled wilderness of Wells Gray Provincial Park. Don’t miss a visit to Clearwater's Yellowhead Museum to see frontier life or Spahats Creek Park, where the volcanic origins of the area are still in evidence.

Day 4: CLEARWATER - JASPER NATIONAL PARK

Explore Wells Gray Park’s mineral springs, serene lakes, dormant volcanoes and don’t miss towering Helmcken Falls, located near the entrance to the park and over twice as high as Niagara Falls. Then set out for Jasper following the scenic Yellowhead Highway through the water and lava-shaped valley of North Thompson River. En route, enjoy panoramic views of Mount Terry Fox as well as Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies often shrouded by mist.

Day 5: JASPER NATIONAL PARK

Jasper National Park's serene lakes and gentle meadows stand in stark contrast to its jagged peaks and spectacular glaciers. Perhaps take an early morning hike on one of the many trails for a chance to observe bears and deer. The wilderness of the park also offers wonderful opportunities for canoeing, white water rafting and horseback riding. Great sites to visit include Miette Hot Springs, Medicine Lake and Maligne Canyon.

Day 6: JASPER NATIONAL PARK - LAKE LOUISE - CANMORE

Experience the Icefields Parkway today, meandering through a landscape of peaks and glaciers before pausing to admire the picturesque alpine waters of Peyto Lake and Moraine Lake. The sparkling turquoise colours and the impressive glacier at Lake Louise are not to be missed. Take a moment to stop at the inspiring Columbia Icefield, where you may even be moved to embark on an unforgettable ride by ice explorer over the glacier's surface. (Optional)

Day 7: CANMORE - BANFF NATIONAL PARK - CANMORE

Today, explore the region from the ground. Maybe start by walking on the area's numerous hiking trails. Keep your eyes open, you are bound to encounter a variety of wildlife along the way. Consider a thrilling helicopter ride that offers an unforgettable aerial view of the Rocky Mountains (Optional). You might also visit the Sundance Range, the Bow and Spray river valleys, Hidden Glacier and the indomitable peaks of the Three Sisters.

Day 8: CANMORE - CALGARY

Leave the majesty of the Canadian Rockies behind and set your sights east. We suggest a visit to Canada Olympic Park where the bobsled and luge events of the 1988 Olympic Winter Games were held. Enjoy an evening in Calgary.

Day 9: CALGARY DEPARTURE

Enjoy your remaining time in Calgary before returning your rental car to the airport for your departure flight back to the UK.

Excellent staff, really clean, not sailed with Celebrity before but it won't be the last.

Ship okay and trip around Inside Passage of Alaska was great, but we were hoping for a bit more on the wild life. The expert was okay but didn't really engage and spent more time joking about things than actually telling us anything interesting or useful. One Korean person walked out of his talk saying she expected something about the wild life, but he was very dismissive and pretended not to understand! We were disappointed as we had heard some of the other cruise lines had much more in the way of wild life experts available. I guess it doesn't fit in with Celebrity's image. We only used Celebrity as we had vouchers to use from a previous disastrous cruise experience with them. We won't be going with them again. Nor will we be using Iglu as we are not happy with their organisation and treatment of our requests. Hey ho, you live and learn.

Great holiday, I thoroughly enjoyed it. All arrangements went to plan. Don't want to be negative at all but you need feedback on the flight to Rio arriving around 2100 and the next flight to Iguazu not leaving until 0700 the following morning. I did ask you on several occasions about this but didn't get any help from you. I discovered a free shuttle bus to the Lynx hotel nearby but when I got there they were fully booked. You could have easily booked this hotel for me for one night, instead of which I was wandering around until after midnight on my own. The details are too long to tell but if you want to contact me I can enlighten you, although I think it's your job not mine to know these things. I'm not encouraged to use you again, even though all other details were perfect.
