Our Rocky Mountains trip is less than 1 month away! We wanted to give you a clear and short overview of the trip.
We will meet between 7.15 AM and 7.30 AM at Canada Place Way between Howe & Burrard Street. The bus will depart at 8 AM, so please make sure that you are on time. On our way to Chase we will make a stop at the BC Wildlife Park in Kamloops. Here you have time to walk around, make a ride on a miniature train or go to the bobcat feeding. You will also have some time to get some food or buy souvenirs. After our stop we will continue our journey to Chase. Once we are in Chase we will check into the Quaaout Lodge & Spa. At the hotel we will get to know a bit more about the Canadian culture from an aboriginal Shuswap Tribe member. After that you will get free time to rest, freshen up, go to the campfire or to use the hotel facilities like the hot tub or the swimming pool.
On Saturday it is time to go to the beautiful place Banff. We will drive through the Mount Revelstoke National Park and Glacier National Park. This means you will get enough opportunities to make beautiful pictures on the way to Lake Louise. At Lake Louise you will get free time to either do ice skating, play ice hockey or just to explore the area. After these amazing activities, we will head to our next hotel on Banff Ave. In the evening, you can go shopping, visit the hot springs or just relax at the hotel. When you all had your rests, you will get the chance to go to a night club. This night out will be in Alberta, which means that 18 year old candidates can join us as well!
On this day you will have time to do optional activities such as skiing/snowboarding at Lake Louise Mountain, dog sledding, ice walking or going on the Banff Gondola. If you choose to not participate in any of these activities, you can sleep a bit longer and join an extended tour of Banff. In the late afternoon, we will leave beautiful Banff and drive to Golden. Once we checked into the hotel, there will be free time to make use of the hotel facilities. The hotel has an indoor pool with waterslide and a hot tub, so put on your bathing suit and take a dip into the pool. If you prefer to go out again, you can also go to the local pub for an end of tour party.
On Monday we still got a few nice activities planned for you. On our drive back to Vancouver, we will first go to Roger’s Pass National Historic Site. After that we will make a stop at Craigellachie before we continue our journey to Vancouver. We will arrive in Vancouver at about 7.30 PM.
