This Canadian Rockies & Glacier National Park tour delivers the pristine wilderness of several national parks and the soaring beauty of the Rockies on both sides of the Canada/U.S. border. In Canada, travel to Waterton Lakes National Park, an UNESCO World Heritage Site with rugged mountains and beautiful water. Visit the historic mining town of Fort Steele; Kootenay National Park; and Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, another UNESCO World Heritage Site with one of the world’s oldest and best-preserved buffalo jumps.

Also in Canada, stay two nights in both Banff and Jasper National Parks. In Banff, enjoy leisure time to explore on your own. As you head to Jasper National Park, stop for a memorable ride aboard an Ice Explorer at the 1,200-foot-thick Columbia Icefield. In Jasper National Park, journey to Maligne Lake, the largest glacially formed lake in the Canadian Rockies, and take a cruise to Spirit Island. Also visit gorgeous Lake Louise, another highlight of your tour.

In Montana, visit stunning Glacier National Park, where you’ll enjoy a thrilling drive on the spectacular Going-to-the-Sun Road aboard a famous, vintage red “Jammer" bus. The Going-to-the-Sun Road is one of North America’s most spectacular drives. It crosses 6,664-foot-high Logan Pass and offers alpine scenery where jagged mountain peaks, deep green forests, pristine lakes, and meadows dominate the landscape. A breathtaking experience indeed!

On this Canadian Rockies & Glacier National Park tour, Globus has also arranged special experiences for you. In Glacier National Park, enjoy a made-from-scratch piece of huckleberry pie or ice cream. Or how about entertainment by a local cowboy poet in Calgary? The region’s Western heritage will come alive through the cowboy poet’s stories and songs.
