ROCKIES SUMMER CLASSIC
This short but mighty excursion is a bucket list adventure. The drive from Vancouver to the town of Revelstoke reserves time for wine tasting in the famous Okanagan Valley. After an overnight in the quaint mountain town of Revelstoke we head to the Rockies and explore all that Banff has to offer, including the nearby Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Glacier.
