NCRU - National Parks of the Canadian Rockies Westbound

The Rockies are a great reason to explore the Canadian West, but why stop there? We asked that question, then answered it with this trip a sprawling, nature-rich mini-epic that melds some of Canada's best national parks with time on the mist-shrouded shores of Vancouver Island. Find yourself face-to-face with moose, deer and maybe even a bear on this trip loaded with diverse experiences whale-watching, glacier hikes, hot springs, and much, much more you'll stuff a lifetime's worth of adventure into the space of a mere two weeks.
