Overview
Explore the lesser-travelled roads of Canada’s west and discover marvels both prehistoric and contemporary. The dinosaur badlands and visits to world-famous museums and paleontological sites of Alberta reveal natural treasures unique to only this area, while the traditional ski destinations of British Columbia are transformed in summer to placid retreats of lakes, valleys and outdoor recreation. Routing along the southern roads of Alberta and British Columbia offer new areas not featured on most itineraries, featuring accommodation in locations close to outdoor activities

Arrive Calgary International Airport and transfer independently to your downtown hotel. Pick up your Jonview Canada Roadbook at the front desk when you check-in.
