Vancouver to Calgary Overland Adventure

Company : G Adventures
Activity: Tours
Country: Canada
Duration: 2 weeks to 3 weeks
Approx Costs: 1000 to 1500 £ Pound (UK)

Vancouver’s North Coast Mountains are just the appetizer for this journey from the Pacific Coast to the Canadian Rockies. 

Beginning in beautiful Vancouver, travellers will hit the ocean in search of whales before heading east into the enveloping mountain wilderness of Banff and Jasper National Parks, where sulphur springs, canoeing expeditions and glaciers older than time abound. And since we camp out most nights, you’re guaranteed maximum natural contact at a minimal price. The Great Outdoors—now all yours.
