From: £8999.00

Day 1
Start your adventure in Calgary, Canada's cowboy capital and head to the Rockie Mountains to the fabled city of Banff.
Day 2-3 Banff-A first taste of the Rockies 
Travel into Banff National Park and watch out for wildlife immersing into the jaw-dropping mountain scenery. 
Day 4-5 Lake Louise 
Experience the azure blue of Lake Louise, the possibly most-photographed lake in the world first-hand. Choose to take in the scenery on a hike, SUP session or canoeing session.
Day 5-6 Moraine Lake 
Head deeper into the national park and make the 1.5-hour drive to Moraine Lake, your home for the next couple of nights. Set in the rugged Valley of the Ten Peaks, Moraine Lake is surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and rock piles, creating a scene so stunning it almost seems unreal.
Day 7-8 Head to BC
Time to leave the majesty of the Rockies behind and make the picturesque drive back to Calgary one last time. 
Day 9-11 Luxury wilderness spa
Prepare yourself for something special, as you climb aboard a helicopter for a breathtaking flight to the southern tip of the Great Bear Rainforest, seven million hectares of spectacular inlets etched by glaciers, untouched old-growth forest, and thriving wildlife. Sonora Island is the jewel in the crown of this coastal paradise, a quiet escape to natural beauty and the recreational experience of a lifetime.
Day 12-14 BC luxury wilderness lodge
Time for a period of contrast as you depart the coastal waters and head inland to the heart of the British Columbia back-country, travelling by floatplane, the work horse of the bush.
Set on the shores of Tyaughton Lake and surrounded by mountains, Tyax Lodge offers luxury accommodation and access to BC's great wilderness. 

Day 15-17 Vancouver-Big City Life
Arrive in the centre of the downtown core of Vancouver, as your float plane lands on the waters of the harbour, where cruise ships and pleasure craft share gentle waters.
The cosmopolitan city of Vancouver has so many places to visit and enjoy, you may have to come back again. Walk, run or cycle the 9.3 km circuit around the seawall of Stanley park or explore its varied interior, visit the aquarium and marvel at the beautiful first nation totem poles.

Day 18-19 Whistler The Mountains are calling 
Jump in your hire car and marvel at the view as you make the two-hour drive from downtown Vancouver to Whistler, climbing up the spectacular Sea-to-Sky highway via Horseshoe Bay, Britannia Beach and Squamish.

Day 20 Tofino-Surfing on Vancouver Island
Descend from the mountain peaks back to coastal waters for a short crossing over the Strait of Georgia, to Vancouver island. Many visitors head to the capital city of Victoria but we prefer the Pacific coastal town of Tofino Take a surf lesson in the rolling waves, master a yoga class on wide sandy beaches or wander through ancient forests. 

Day 21 
Today maybe your last day but it is still a day of memories as you make you way back across Vancouver island, through areas of natural beauty. Once more crossing the Georgia strait, before making your way to Vancouver international airport for your onward journey.
