3 nts Elk & Avenue Hotel, Banff
PLUS

Standard room

Established as Canada’s first national park in 1885 after railway workers stumbled onto a thermal hot spring, Banff National Park is today part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and spans 2,564 square miles of mountainous terrain packed with spectacularly scenic valleys, peaks, glaciers, forests, meadows and rivers.

In the picturesque town of Banff, wander along lively Banff Avenue to browse boutiques and souvenir shops, visit art galleries and museums, or chill out in the bars and restaurants.

For a loftier perspective of the town and valley, hike the 2.6 mile trail up Tunnel Mountain or hop on the Banff Gondola which is open year round and floats its way up Sulphur Mountain. When in need of some relaxation and rejuvenation head to the geothermally heated Banff Hot Springs.  It’s magical to sit in the pools whatever the time of year or hour of day.

Alternatively, don your hiking boots or hire a bike and discover more than 1,000 miles of maintained trails. Wander or ride along the shores of glittering blue-green lakes, trek up a mountain pass, hike across a frozen lake and be entranced by the landscapes around you.

Notable sights within the area include the large glacial Lake Minnewanka, where scenic cruises go out to Devil’s Gap. Or you can travel under your own steam and hire a canoe or kayak. Dramatic Johnston Canyon is another must-visit natural attraction along with Vermilion Lakes which are a fantastic place to watch sunrise or sunset, see wildlife or spend a day exploring  its shores.

2 nts Chateau Jasper, Jasper

Standard room

With shimmering glaciers, abundant wildlife, crystalline lakes, thundering waterfalls, deep canyons and evergreen forest all surrounded by towering peaks, it’s little wonder Jasper National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At 4,335 square miles it is also Canada’s largest park in the Rocky Mountains and the second largest Dark Sky Preserve in the world.

The laid-back town of Jasper is your springboard to the park’s outdoor pursuits and attractions. Adventurers can fill their boots with alpine day hikes, adrenalin pumping mountain biking, great paddling, climbing and canyoning. Those who prefer a more relaxed pace can take in the many scenic drives, picnic amongst majestic mountains and enjoy watching wildlife such as caribou, elk, moose, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, bears, wolves and a variety of birds. For an aerial perspective, ride the Jasper Skytram. It takes seven minutes to reach the high Upper Station where the jaw-dropping views include six mountain ranges.

Additional attractions include Miette Hot Springs, which are the hottest springs in the Rockies; stunning Maligne Lake whose baby-blue water and circle of photogenic peaks are a feast for the eyes; and the steep, narrow gorge of Maligne Canyon. Also not to be missed is the Columbia Icefield where you can hop aboard an Ice Explorer onto the Athabasca Glacier or step out onto the amazing Glacier Skywalk.

After a day in the wild, there are friendly pubs and charming cafés where you can dine alfresco in front of a vista as drool-worthy as the food on your plate.

Majestic mountains, sparkling ocean, rainforests and beautiful foliage throughout all four seasons make Vancouver one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Add to this a relatively mild Pacific Northwest climate, an energetic restaurant and nightlife scene, world class shopping and a unique mix of cultures and it's easy to understand why Vancouver has recently been named by Lonely Planet as one of their 'Top 10 cities to visit in 2020" and should be high on any traveller's wish list.

Vancouver's oldest neighbourhood, Gastown, grew from a single tavern founded back in 1867. Today, the district retains its historic charm and independent spirit with Victorian architecture housing boutiques, galleries and some of the best culinary fare in the city. Get a bird's eye view of the area from the Vancouver Lookout, which is located in the Harbour Centre and rises 553 feet to give visitors a 360º panorama of the city.

If you do have a head for heights make your way to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and appreciate nature from three breathtaking perspectives. The swaying Capilano Suspension Bridge, which stretches 450 feet across a canyon and the Capilano River 230 feet below, has thrilled visitors since 1889; Treetops Adventure takes you 100 feet into the mid-story of a coastal rainforest on seven suspension bridges attached to old-growth trees; and the Cliffwalk, which is not for the fainthearted, follows a granite precipice along the Capilano River on a labyrinth-like series of narrow cantilevered bridges, stairs and platforms through rainforest vegetation.

Adjacent to Downtown Vancouver is the magnificent green oasis of Stanley Park. Featuring huge trees, ever-blooming gardens and lovely beaches all encircled by a six mile paved seawall making it easy to explore on foot or by bicycle. Within the park attractions range from the totem poles at Brockton Point to a pitch 'n' putt golf course and the marine life at the Vancouver Aquarium.

Vancouver's Chinatown has been buzzing with activity for more than a century. Rich in history and architecture, this area boasts North America's third largest Chinatown and has plenty of classic speciality stores, dim sum restaurants and apothecaries. When you require some sanctuary, head to Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, with covered walkways and beautiful pavilions this incredibly manicured garden was the first authentic classical Chinese garden ever built outside of China.

When you think of Vancouver, beaches may not spring to mind, but the city has several options when you're looking for somewhere to relax, particularly during the summer months. Kitsliano Beach is a particular favourite as along with the stretch of sands you'll find Kits Pool, a large outdoor heated salt-water pool with a wrap-around view of the city, ocean and mountains.

The city's best known shopping precinct is Robson Street, and a must-stroll area for visitors. Being right in the heart of the downtown core, you'll find yourself amongst locals on their way to the office or heading to a game at the BC Place Stadium. There's also plenty of casual eateries, well-priced Asian restaurants and fine dining options too.

Take the ferry across False Creek to Granville Island and once you're there, the biggest attraction is the indoor Public Market, with seemingly endless rows of stalls. Outside of the market, there are theatres, art galleries and craft studios, or for outdoor types kayaking and paddleboarding tours can be found here.

Another nearby attraction is the vast alpine playground of Grouse Mountain, just 15 minutes from the city's downtown core. Take the iconic 8 minute gondola ride from the Valley Station to the summit and enjoy the jaw-dropping majestic nature of British Columbia as it unfolds around you.
