*Ultimate Expedition exclusives
You’ve seen the pictures – now’s the time to experience the real thing. Flying by helicopter over the Rockies is an awe-inspiring adventure, bursting with majestic sights such as natural glaciers, raging waterfalls and untouched landscapes.
Crossing from Vancouver to Banff, there’s just so much to see that it’s worth spending a full day to do so. The Icefields Parkway and Maligne Valley provide plenty to experience, until the day ends with a breathtaking sunset flight over the vast wilderness.
The route to Jasper is just as memorable, an extraordinary experience only a helicopter can provide. After visiting Lake Louise, Banff National Park, the Three Sisters mountain range, Lake Minnewanka and touring the Mount Assiniboine Glacier, you’ll end the day feeling wowed from so many life-changing sights.
A thrilling safari will allow you to witness B.C.’s untamed wildlife up close. We’ll have lunch on top of the tallest mountain from the Canadian Rockies, then rest at an iconic Canadian destination: Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge.
After quenching your thirst for adventure, it’s time to cater to a different kind of thirst –fine wine! West Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley are a well-kept Canadian secret, a microclimate with ideal conditions to produce 90% of the country’s best vintages. We’ll stop for a sip at two renowned wineries: Mission Hill Estate Family and Quails’ Gate.
The journey ends back where it all started, surrounded by the wonders of the Pacific Ocean, the West Coast, Vancouver Island and the spectacular mountains. We’ll follow the scenic sea-to-sky route from Vancouver to Whistler, flying over Squamish all the way to Kamloops before heading back to the airport.
