5 Outstanding Tours
To Explore The Majestic Canadian Rockies:

The Canadian Rockies is always top of mind for visitors to western Canada. However, we like to ensure that our guests experience only the most special and unique destinations within the Canadian Rocky Mountains. On our extraordinary tours, we ensure you see not only the top attractions in the regions but also the more out-of-the-way options, that aren’t often included on other itineraries. In the Rocky Mountains that means we visit the popular towns of Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper, and attractions such as the Columbia Icefields, Maligne Lake and the Banff Gondola on Sulphur Mountain. However, we will also make wonderful roadside stops to learn more about the region’s geography and history, such as the Rogers Pass Discovery Centre, as well as the site where the last spike was struck to connect Canada’s railroad system at Craigellachie. Other highlights not to be missed are views of Mt. Robson, the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies and Spahats Falls one of the area’s highest waterfalls.

5 Best Ways
To Roam On A Big Adventure To The Yukon:

The Yukon. If there is a name in Canada that stirs up the imagination more than the Yukon, we don’t know about it! Full of wonderful wildlife, colourful northern lights, and unique adventures like dog-mushing and ice-fishing, The Yukon is the perfect destination for someone who wants to experience the most spectacularly exclusive experiences in Canada.

Perhaps one of the world’s most extraordinary experiences is the Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights. This exceptional light show is a natural phenomenon where the sun’s rays reflect off our atmosphere and produce spectacular light shows; the lights are best seen on the dark, clear nights that the Yukon has in abundance throughout the winter months.

Our Extraordinary Experiences packages will allow you to enjoy not only the northern lights show (with a little luck of course) but also ensure you enjoy other exclusively Yukon adventures, like dog-mushing, ice fishing and snow-shoeing. We can even provide warm clothing during winter trips to ensure you enjoy your time in one of the world’s coldest climates. Our most unique Yukon itinerary includes a visit to frozen Marsh lake for a whiskey and wine tasting along with a weather-dependent nighttime viewing of the northern lights.

  1. Yukon Whiskey & wine Special Weekend
  2. Yukon Deluxe Winter Northern Lights
  3. Yukon Deluxe Summer Lakeside Adventure
  4. Yellowknife Northern Lights Adventure
  5. Yukon Dog Mushing Adventure
