Calgary - Columbia Falls, Montana, United States

This morning, journey south to the prairie lands while enjoying distant views of the spectacular Rockies. Visit Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, one of the world’s oldest and best-preserved buffalo jumps, and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Head-Smashed-In, in the foothills of the Rockies, has been used continuously by native people of the North American plains for over 5,500 years. A Blackfoot guide brings to life the culture of the Plains people, the Buffalo Hunt, and the many secrets uncovered in archaeological digs. Continue travelling south to Montana. En route, pass through quaint villages and travel along roads sometimes traversed by grizzly bears, black bears, mountain goats, cougars, wolves, moose and elk. Stay: Cedar Creek Lodge (2 Nights) (B/D)

Columbia Falls - Glacier National Park - Columbia Falls

Today, spend the day experiencing Glacier National Park. A naturalist's paradise, Glacier preserves over 1 million acres of forests, Alpine meadows and lakes, and is home to over 70 species of mammals and 270 species of birds. Board one of its famous Jammer cars – built in the 1930s – and drive along one of the most breathtaking roads in North America. “Going to the Sun Road”* stretches across the Continental Divide and offers incredible views of the valley and Glacier National Park.

Banff

Start your day with breathtaking views of Banff’s Sulphur Mountain. Take a gondola ride to the summit where you will enjoy breakfast as you overlook the town and the valley. Next, enjoy a sightseeing tour of the Banff area including stops at the lovely Bow Falls and the fascinating Hoodoos, also known as the “Land of Sleeping Giants.” Later, visit a local ammolite specialist and learn about this rare gemstone that is found only in Alberta. Spend the rest of the day at leisure. Perhaps you will choose to browse through the shops and museums or just take in the natural beauty of the area. (B)

Icefields Parkway - Choice of Glacier Experience or Glacier Skywalk

A wonderful day of sightseeing awaits as we set out along the unforgettable Icefields Parkway and behold lofty waterfalls, rushing rivers, glacial peaks, imposing cliffs and snowcapped mountain ranges. Stop at the Columbia Icefield and choose a fun ride** across this mass of glacial ice which is over 1,000 feet thick – the largest accumulation of ice south of the Arctic Circle; or, take a walk on the Glacier Skywalk to experience the breathtaking views of the Sunwapta Valley and witness the dramatic landscape from the glass-floored platform. This afternoon, stop at stunning Peyto Lake, a turquoise glacier-fed lake that evokes pure serenity. Be on the lookout for bears and stately elk on your return to Banff. Join your fellow travelers this evening at a farewell dinner where you will toast the end of a wonderful trip. (B/D)
