The Rockies are a great reason to explore the Canadian West, but why stop there?
We asked that question, then answered it with this trip - a sprawling, nature-rich mini-epic that melds some of Canada’s best national parks with time off the mist-shrouded shores of Vancouver Island. Loaded with diverse experiences—whale-watching, glacier hikes, hot springs and much, much more—and bookend nights in Calgary and Vancouver, you’ll stuff a lifetime’s worth of adventure into the space of a mere two weeks.

I travelled last year the first time with G Adventures and joined this trip to West Canada. Our guide was great, I have done a lot of group tours and Freddy was the best guide I ever had. He was a perfect cook and know everything what we asked him or he know where we can find the Information. The group was really lovely and some have turned out to be some of my best friends and we even meet up after the holiday. Freddy showed us really beautiful and secret places and not just the tourist things, it was the perfect trip.
