Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival in Banff
As with much of Canada, the journey is an experience rather than a chore. Most people travel here via the spectacular Icefields Parkway, which winds between the Rocky peaks and offers some jaw-dropping photo opportunities. You may find the journey taking a little longer than planned! Once you arrive in Banff you can settle into your central lodge and explore the bustling town. You’ll find some really good options for eating and drinking here and spectacular scenery at every turn!
Explore the lakes & peaks of Banff
Today you’ll take part in a guided group trip of Lake Louise and Moraine Lake, taking short hikes through the amazing Rockies and sailing into the air on the gondola to get a different perspective. This is a great way to explore as, not only do you get to learn all about the area from a local guide, but the organised tours have allocated parking at the main tourist hot-spots and you can have a break from driving and just sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery.
Departure from Banff
For many travellers, this is the last stop on the road through this part of Canada. Calgary International Airport is only a couple of hours away, so you can easily drive here and drop off your car before catching your flight home, or if you are starting your adventure here you can travel onwards north to the stunning Icefield Parkway and Jasper or south to the prairies of Waterton National Park.
