Our Canadian Rockies trip was excellent value and a comprehensive itinerary. It was a great mix of activities with choices to suit all. Julien, our leader, was truly exceptional and we can’t recommend him or this trip highly enough. Thankyou

I can highly recommend this trip! The organization is excellent and with the local guide you get a very deep impression and knowledge about the region. A special highlight of this trip was the canoe trip to a lonely bay! Enjoying the time without zivilisation is an amazing experience!

This was an amazing trip, filled with many memories and beautiful friends from around the world!
Everything about this trip was made so easy thanks to the tour guide. He was very calm but also got the group excited for adventures. In terms of the itinerary, it was awesome! We were able to see a lot in 2 weeks. There were additional activities that we could pay for, but the guide took us to heaps of hikes and joined us on all of them! There were some long days of driving but I actually found it quite relaxing. The trip is pretty full on - having to set up camp every time we moved location and doing lots of hikes, so the long van days are sometimes really nice to get a snooze in.
The guide cooked amazing food, even when we had to pack food into the canoe for the overnight trip, he still made the BEST DISH OF THE WHOLE TRIP - salmon and pesto pasta. It says meals are not included in the price, however we paid a small “Kitty” and that covered nearly all meals except for when we were in town, or got extra hungry - which was rare. The also included some traditional Canadian foods, such as poutine, Nanaimo bars and some others.
The camping lifestyle was really fun! I have not had experience camping for 2 weeks so this was brand new! It was quite cold in the morning and sometimes through the night but as soon as fire bans were lifted, we had a fire going on the morning and before bed. I would recommend bringing a sleeping bag liner or blanket to help with the cold nights.
The trip was incredible, I would highly recommend doing this. Everything is taken care of and the only thing I had to do was TRY and take in all the incredible views.

This was a wonderful adventure because of the itinerary, the spectacular surroundings, the good arrangements, the tiptop gear and van at our disposal, our awesome trip leader as well as the positive attitude of my fellow travelers. I was the odd on out regarding age, but they were all very inclusive of me. There was a good balance of hiking and other activities like the paddling in the less visited Wells Gray Park where we heard the call of the loon, a symbol of the wilderness, and also viewed two of the most spectacular waterfalls you could ever hope to see, as well as witnessing the futile attempts of salmon to jump up a rapid in the Clearwater river. The other sights in Jasper, and Banff and Yoho and Glacier National Parks were as spectacular as I had imagined them to be, but then, I love the mountains. I shall seek out my next trip with great anticipation.
