This evening, board VIA Rail’s ‘Canadian’ for the famous train journey to the majestic Canadian Rockies.

By lunch you begin your passage into the Canadian Rockies with views of snow-capped peaks, waterfalls and the expansive glaciers of the Albreda Icefields.

Late afternoon arrival in to Jasper and transfer to your hotel.

Today is free to explore Jasper before departing this evening for some amazing close-up photo opportunities of wildlife.

Travel by coach along the incredibly scenic Icefields Parkway. Ride the Ice Explorer on the Athabasca glacier, part of the Columbia Icefield covering nearly 325 sq km, then stop at the Glacier Skywalk to walk across the glass floor 280m over valleys and waterfalls.
