Fly to Calgary

Yours on-your-own, two-night stays in Calgary will be maximized, giving you 2 nights to enjoy the cowtown city. 

Calgary, Alberta, incorporated as a city in 1894 with current population over 1.3 millions. The city of Calgary is situated on the Bow River, about 220 km north of the Montana border at the meeting point of the Western prairies and mountain foothills. It is the financial center of western Canada, based on its key role in the development of the region’s oil and gas industry.

Travel Back In Time

A day trip from Calgary to witness a landscape where dinosaurs walked the earth and southern Alberta was a subtropical paradise of towering redwoods and giant ferns. Today, fertile plains suddenly drop away into a world of multi-hued canyons and wind-sculpted hoodoos. Spanning east from Drumheller to the Saskatchewan border and south to the United States, this region is known as the Canadian Badlands. It is home to the largest deposits of dinosaur bones in the world.

Feel the Spirit  

Many people don’t have this Alberta park on their travel radar, mostly because it gets eclipsed by its celebrity sisters, Banff and Jasper. Created in 1895, Waterton Lakes National Park joined forces with Glacier National.  On its way to park, stop at Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump. This is one of the world's oldest and best-preserved Buffalo Jumps. Known for its remarkable testimony of prehistoric life, the site bears witness to a custom practiced by indigenous people of the North American plains for nearly 6,000 years.

On The Old North Trail

For 10,000 years First Nation people of North America used The Old North Trail (from the Yukon Territory in Canada to New Mexico), first on foot, then with dogs pulling cargo-laden travois, and finally with horses. Today, you can still see traces of the trail in certain locations between  Waterton Lake National Park and Kootenay Plains near the border of Banff National Park. Today, a south-north highway #22 along the foothills of the Rockies from the Canada/USA border to town of Rocky Mountain House is officially named  "Cowboy Trail".

Yoho National Park

The word “yoho” for the park name was taken from the Cree language. It is used as an exclamation. They use it when something is awe-inspiring or amazing. When you first look at Yoho National Park, you’ll find yourself saying, “Wow”, “Awesome”, or “Amazing”. So what better word to name the park than a similar expression from the people that used to live in the area? This is not a park that will disappoint you. It stretches out over 300,000 acres. Within the park are plenty of different options for scenery. There are rivers, lakes, falls, and ice fields to explore.

Glaciers, Lakes, and Waterfalls

The Icefields Parkway is a very nice scenic drive. This 230-kilometer-long stretch of highway (143 miles) winds its way through both Banff National Park and Jasper National Park connecting Lake Louise with Jasper. But the Icefields Parkway isn’t just about the scenic drive, on its way there are countless blue lakes, waterfalls, and glaciers. Athabasca Glacier is one place you do not want to miss on the Icefields Parkway. The Athabasca Glacier is part of the larger Columbia Icefields.

Banff and Lake Louise

In summer it is challenging to avoid the crowds in Banff and Lake Louise but even though it can feel like tour buses and hordes of people have overtaken the parks there are always ways to get away from the crowds. Every year, the startlingly beautiful resort town of Banff and the village of Lake Louise receive more than four million visitors. In July 2023 alone, Banff National Park saw a total of almost 700,000. A typical busy day in Banff sees around 9,500 unique inbound and outbound vehicles.
