Day 3 – Hike, bike, canoe... in Jasper National Park It’s a day of fun, your way, at The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge inside Jasper National Park. Go on a bike ride, take a boat or canoe on the lake, hit some balls on the tennis court or at the driving range – thanks to the Summer Resort Activities Card* Tauck guests receive; the card is good for the entire time you’re staying in Jasper. Or take advantage of a wide range of optional activities (available at an additional charge) offered by the lodge, such as golf and horseback riding. You’ll have a great opportunity in the late afternoon to talk with a Jasper National Park official about how wildlife is observed and monitored at a Parks Canada presentation on the natural history, legends and lore of Canada’s national parks. Join us for a private outdoor barbecue tonight at your lodge, where the air is fragrant with aspen, fir, spruce and lodgepole pine. Meals BD

Day 2 – Icefields Parkway, one of the world’s great drives Start an amazing day in the Rockies with an interpretive hike led by a Master Guide who shows you why Lake Louise and environs are truly “superlative.” After lunch, set off along the Icefields Parkway to Jasper National Park. One look around tells you why this stretch of highway is world-famous – there are mountains, glaciers, waterfalls and snowfields as far as you can see... not to mention the moose, deer, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, or bears you might spy along the way! Arrive at your home for the next three nights – an incredible lakefront resort right in the heart of Jasper National Park. Meals BD


Day 4 – Explore Maligne Canyon and go river rafting Check out cascading waterfalls, mysterious potholes, age-old fossils, lush plant life and towering limestone walls as you explore Maligne Canyon in Jasper National Park. One of the most beautiful gorges in the Rockies, it was created about 160 million years ago by churning waters swirling through the Palliser Formation, a layer of limestone once covered by a shallow tropical sea. Gazing at its sheer walls – some plunging more than 150 feet – look for the ripple marks of ancient waves imprinted on the rocks, as well as nesting ravens and rare black swifts. Then take off on a whitewater raft trip* along the glacier-fed Athabasca River, fresh from the Columbia Icefields. Meals BD


Suit up for an exciting whitewater rafting trip on the glacier-fed Athabasca River; spend two nights at The Fairmont Banff Springs, the historic “castle in the Rockies”; and feast on views of six mountain ranges from aboard the Banff Gondola
