Full trip itinerary


  • Day 1: Arrive in Calgary + Welcome Dinner

    O Canada! Known for hockey, moose, and stunning scenery straight out of a National Geographic Magazine, the Great White North will leave you breathless.

    Today's highlights:

    • Arrive in Calgary where you'll meet an EF representative.
    • Transfer to your hotel to check in and check out your room.
    • Enjoy a Welcome Dinner with fellow travelers.
  • Day 2: Travel to Jasper via Lake Louise

    Let the national park tour begin! On your way to Jasper, you’ll drive the Icefields Parkway, deemed one of the most beautiful road trips in the world. So yeah, no naps on this bus ride.

    Today's highlights:

    • Drive from Calgary to Jasper National Park.
    • Stop for a selfie at Lake Louise, one of the most photographed places on the planet.
    • Keep your eyes peeled for any wildlife sightings as you drive Icefields Parkway.
  • Day 3: Maligne Canyon Ice Walk

    Jasper’s deepest canyon is a must-see during the winter months. You’ll walk amongst frozen waterfalls, ice caves, and fossils on a 1.4-mile walk through the canyon. Afterwards, Jasper is yours to explore.

    Today's highlights:

    • Join a guide as you gasp your way through Maligne Canyon.
    • Take the afternoon to do whatever sounds good.
    • Feast on an included dinner with your group.

    Free time suggestions

    Jasper Planetarium: Experience awe-inspiring visuals of the universe from your seat in the domed theater, then head outside to see stars IRL with a local guide.

  • Day 4: Free day in Jasper + optional fat bike tour

    Did you know Jasper is a designated Dark Sky Preserve? This means the park has taken extra measures to limit light pollution, giving you unobstructed views of the night sky. Do look up, will you?

    Free time suggestions

    Spa day: Get out of the cold and clear your mind—head to one of the local resorts to pamper yourself with an unforgettable spa treatment...or three.

    Fat bike tour (extra cost)

    Pedal through snowy trails on your bike with ease, thanks to four-inch tires and a local guide.

    This excursion is pre-book only; if your trip is less than 35 days away, please call 800-766-2645 to purchase. This excursion is also non-refundable 40 days prior to departure.

  • Day 5: Travel to Banff + Banff Gondola

    Let’s make a trade: one picturesque park for another picturesque park (wow, say that three times fast). Listen, it’s a good deal—you’re heading to Banff, Canada’s oldest, and perhaps most spectacular, national park.

    Today's highlights:

    • Travel by bus from Jasper to Banff.
    • Ride the Banff Gondola to the peak of Sulphur Mountain, where birds-eye-views of six different mountain ranges await.
  • Day 6: Optional Marble Canyon snowshoeing + Farewell Dinner

    The only thing better than a day in Banff is a day in Banff doing whatever you want—whether that’s snowshoeing or exploring on your own (regular-shoeing?). Then, share some laughs (and maybe shed a few tears) at a Farewell Dinner with your group.

    Free time suggestions

    Whyte Museum: Perfect your museum walk as you learn about the art, history, and culture of the Canadian Rockies.

    Vermillion Lakes: Walk the leisurely trails around these nearby lakes for breathtaking views of Mount Rundle, one of Banff’s most prominent mountains.

    Marble Canyon snowshoeing (extra cost)

    Snowshoe through Kootenay National Park, then reward yourself with a special Canadian frozen treat.

    This excursion is pre-book only; if your trip is less than 35 days away, please call 800-766-2645 to purchase. This excursion is also non-refundable 40 days prior to departure.

  • Day 7: Fly home

    Goodbye, friends!
    Your next destination awaits—home. But this isn’t goodbye. It’s “See you later.” The only question is, where?
