Day 1: Calgary, Alberta – Tour Begins

Day 2: Calgary – Waterton Lakes National Park
This morning, journey south to the prairie lands while enjoying the 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 Aboriginal people for over 5,500 years. Continue traveling south to Waterton Lakes National Park. En route, pass through quaint villages and travel along roads sometimes traversed by grizzly bears, black bears, mountain goats, cougars, wolves, moose, and elk. Enjoy some leisure time to explore the grounds and take some photographs.

Day 3: Waterton Lakes National Park – Glacier National Park – Waterton Lakes
Today you’ll explore Glacier National Park. A naturalist’s paradise, Glacier preserves over one million acres of forests, Alpine meadows and lakes, and is home to over 70 species of mammals and 270 species of birds. Enjoy a drive aboard one of the famous Jammer cars, built in the 1930s, over one of the most breathtaking roads in North America. “Going to the Sun Road”* stretches for 52 miles across the Continental Divide and offers incredible views of the valley and Glacier National Park.

Day 4: Waterton Lakes National Park – Banff, Alberta
This morning, relax during your journey to Banff and soak in a backdrop of wonderful wildlife and the majestic Canadian Rockies.
