The Rockies Trip

It’s the time of the year where when you were younger would search for easter Eggs and other presents, but now that you are grown up it is time to join the most popular tour … and to discover the beautiful nature of Canada.

The tour will start on April 18th at 7am outside the Waterfront station and will end on April 21st. During the four days we will visit Valemount, Banff and Golden.

And this all for only $335! There are also optional activities such as SnoCoach Glacier Experience or a Banff Gondola ride.

INTERNeX Explorer: The Rocky Mountains -Part 3

Next weekend, we are finally going to the Rocky Mountains trip! So close yet so far…but I’m sure time will fly by. So on our last night, we will be staying in Golden, BC. Let’s find out more about this place, shall we?

Golden is near six of the most spectacular Canadian National Parks  (Banff, Glacier, Jasper, Kootenay, Mount Revelstoke and Yoho). It was first explored by David Thompson, a Canadian pioneer during 1807, when he stumbled upon the future site of Golden.  Like Valemount and Banff, Golden also contributed to the development of the Canadian Pacific Railway as it became a base camp that extended the line further west in order to create a cross-country network of rails.

This place is now a major attraction for tourists with many activities to do including skiing, back-country skiing, mountain biking and river rafting. The town also thrives on its forest industry. The forest industry began with the development of CPR, which was also used for buildings and bridges.

Golden also lies near the Kicking Horse River. How did it get that name? It’s actually an interesting story…an explorer James Hector was crossing a river when he accidentally got kicked and knocked unconscious by his own horse! He was thought to be dead. But as they were about to bury him, Hector woke up and started to move around. They called the river the Kicking Horse.

I am counting down the days until we get to see this beautiful and historical place 🙂 are you?

Cheers,

Flora

On Friday 6th we will arrive in Valemont. Valemont is in BC and is situated in a valley between the Rocky Mountains, Monashee Mountains and Cariboo Mountains.

Golden has quite a few impressing attractions that you need to see while we are there. It is home to the longest covered pedestrian bridge in all of Canada. You can even take a gondola ride to see the unbelievable views of the valley and mountain vistas.
