The Canadian Rockies are one of the most beautiful sights in our land. They’re home to a seemingly endless number of scenic outlooks, world-class lodges, and activities for visitors of all ages.
To truly see everything the Rockies have to offer, the best way to travel is by train. That’s why Blue Horizon Travel is proud to offer our Canadian Rockies & Mountaineer Rail summer tour. Here’s what you’ll see along the way.
Banff was Canada’s first national park, and over the years, it has grown to be one of its most popular. That’s because the park is home to some of the most unique natural features in the country, like Lake Louise, the flowers of Sunshine Meadow, and the peaks along Icefields Parkway (which we’ll get into detail in the next section). At the park, visitors can enjoy a number of activities, including world-renowned white-water rafting, canoeing, bird-watching, and hiking. There’s something for everyone at Banff.
Inside of Banff National Park is the Athabasca Glacier, a naturally-formed glacier that has called the Rockies home for thousands of years. The Icefields Parkway will lead you through this incredible scenery, and visitors will be able to take part in the immersive tours and experiences that the glacial landscape has to offer. Learn the natural history of the Canadian Rockies with us and you’ll fall in love.
Jasper is the largest of the Canadian Rockies national parks, with a bounty of wildlife and wilderness that has been preserved pristinely over the years. From the base town of Jasper, which is home to a number of unique restaurants and lodges, visitors will be able to tap into that unspoiled beauty with the proper gear, and guidance. Don’t miss one of the many trails in Jasper, taking you past the sublime Maligne Canyon.
