Fly Drive Holidays to Western Canada

Your fly drive to Alberta starts in Calgary, a great shopping city and gateway to the Canadian Rockies is your first taster of Alberta, then head south to the peaceful resort of Kananaskis which few visitors from the UK are aware of . Built with the 1988 winter Olympics in mind Kananaskis is scenic and peaceful, perfect for a relaxing break. Drive to UNESCO World Heritage Site Waterton Lakes International Peace Park. Bordering USA this Park together with its sister Glacier National Park is all about wide open spaces and stunning natural beauty but without the crowds and coaches associated with the much busier Parks of Banff and Jasper.

Your drive continues on to the superb towns of the Kootenays, Cranbrook and Crawford Bay which are surrounded by glorious scenery. Nelson and Vernon showcase the Okanagan Valley perfectly with its warm climate and abundance of orchards. There are beaches here surrounding the lake and water sports are excellent.

Overnight at Harrison Hot Springs before arriving in the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver. Stroll through Stanley Park and the cobbled streets of Gastown. Visit Granville Island and kayak around the harbour or browse the stalls of the fantastic market here.

Whistler in summer is an outdoor playground and offers some amazing adventures such as zip trekking through the trees and mountain biking. Take the ride to the summit of the mountain and look for bears down below in the dense forests. Spend a few nights in Clearwater in the shadow of Wells Grey Park where wildlife sightings are common and impressive.

Drive the spectacular Icefield parkway and stop often to appreciate magnificent glaciers that fall short of the road. Take a tundra buggy onto the Athabasca Glacier and walk on this natural phenomenon. Spend time in Field at Yoho National Park before arriving in Banff National Park. Visit the aquamarine waters of Lake Louise nearby and enjoy hiking and biking in the mountains. Your fly drive to Western Canada ends at Calgary airport.

Fly back from Calgary.
