Journey Through the Clouds Discovery Self-Drive – 2020

DJGE/DJGW 7 Nights / 8 Days

Overview

This week long adventure includes two days on the Rocky Mountaineer, four nights in the Canadian Rockies and a five day full-size rental car with unlimited kilometres.

Pick up the car in Jasper, explore the Rockies then drop the car in Calgary before you fly home.

Spend a night at the Chateau Lake Louise, and, if you like to take pictures, think about getting up early to photograph the the sun rise, first on the glacier and then on the lake.

This rail and drive package begins with an overnight stay in Vancouver Mondays and Thursdays (and select Sundays) from April 13 to October 8, 2020.  It also offers starting from Calgary on Tuesdays and Saturdays (and select Fridays) from April 11, 2020 to October 6, 2020.

And consider extending your stay at the Chateau. There’s lots to do: hiking, exploring the Chateau itself, canoeing, relaxing in the splendid public rooms.

In Banff, we recommend a Bow River float during your free day. Getting out on the river gives you a chance to experience the wilderness, away from the crowds and you’ll have an opportunity to experience the serenity of nature in the Canadian Rockies.
