You can already notice Easter approaching, seeing all the stores filling up with Easter stuff. Even Tim Horton’s has an Easter donut now available. Yes, I ate one this morning. Yes, it was delicious. But what does Easter mean to us? Well, a trip to the Rocky Mountains of course!
Not much more than a week and we will be sitting in a buss heading to see one of the top must see locations in Canada; The Rocky Mountains. In my previous blog post about the Rockies I talked about the amazing highlights of our four-day trip. To guarantee that you will enjoy your time in the Rockies I want to make sure that you aren’t forgetting anything relevant from your backpack.
The things you need depend of course on what you decide to do during the trip, but if I were you I’d be prepared for everything. It is going to be winter weather in the Rockies so remember to bring enough warm clothes. We don’t want anyone getting sick. We also have an opportunity to visit the hot springs so that’s why you might want to be ready for a swim. Good news for the 18-year-old ones: we will be in Alberta, so you can also join the parties! Anyhow, here is a short list of some necessities:
- Warm clothes
- Extra pairs of socks (for the ones that might get wet)
- Towel and bathing clothes
- ID (2 pieces)
- Money for snacks, 3 lunches and 1 dinner, and a night out in Banff
- Charger (+portable power bank)
- Cash for optional activities
If you wish to do any optional activities you can either book them in advance or pay on tour with cash. Prices (before Monday 15th/ on tour):
- Banff Gondola: $60 / $65
- Icefields Glacier Walk: $70/ $75
- Combo: $125 / $130
Any questions regarding to the trip? Feel free to ask, see you soon!
