Take the ultimate self-drive road trip through western Canada where coastal rainforest and the glittering Pacific coastline abounds with brown bears, wolves, whales and bald eagles.

This tailor made wildlife trip starts from Calgary on the prairies of Alberta Province and, following a highly scenic route, winds its way right through the heart of the celebrated Rocky Mountains before descending to the forested British Columbia coast - with a huge choice of activities en route. On crossing to Vancouver Island, you drive through the ancient forests of Pacific Rim National Park to the remote coastal town of Tofino, famed for its whale watching. Finally make your way back to the mainland to end in the lively - and lovely - city of Vancouver.
