Having staged the 1988 Winter Olympics, Calgary has a superb Winter Sports Museum. Located 191 metres above the downtown core, Calgary Tower offers the best view in the city and is a must-see on any visitor’s itinerary. Other options include the Canadian Wild West at Heritage Park, Calgary Zoo, Botanical Gardens and Prehistoric Park.Fairmont Palliser, Calgary
This morning you will collect your rental car and make the journey through the spell-binding Rocky Mountains to Jasper. En route enjoy Icefield Parkway, one of the world’s most spectacular mountainous drives. A visit to the Columbia Icefield for an Ice Explorer ride out onto the glacier is an absolute must.
We have allowed three nights to explore more of Mother Nature’s incredible beauty. With thousands of pristine acres and a small population, Jasper is the ultimate place to view wildlife in their natural surroundings. Elk, deer, bear, moose, and mountain goats are just a sample of the many wild animals roaming the park, so whatever you do, don’t forget your camera.Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, Jasper
