Few landscapes inspire scenes of drama quite like the wild terrain of the Canadian Rockies. Stretching across vast swathes of British Columbia and Alberta, the mountain range is home to some of Canada’s most impressive natural sights and jaw-dropping scenery, and this epic 14-day trip puts you right in the heart of it.

Huge, rugged peaks, placid, blue alpine lakes and seemingly endless wilderness combine to create one of the greatest driving environments on earth and we’ve put together some of the best bits to make sure that this multi-centre holiday is one you will never forget.

To kick start your epic journey we’ll fly you into Calgary from the UK, the perfect place to start a trip through the Rocky Mountains. With two nights at your disposal, you’ll have plenty of time to get over your flight and explore the unique culture that the city exudes. Calgary’s massive metropolitan area is packed with attractions to discover and neighbourhoods to explore. For eating, drinking and shopping, The Beltline and 17th Avenue is the place to be. This part of town is where the city comes alive at night and where you’ll always find something incredible to eat. Inglewood, Calgary’s oldest urban area, offers a more alternative experience while it’s also close to the Calgary Zoo; a must see in the city. Glenbow Museum, Stephen Avenue Walk, Chinatown and Prince’s Island Park are among the other major attractions in the city.

After two nights in the city, you will drive out to Banff and catch your first real glimpse of Canada’s awesome natural beauty. The resort town lies within the heart of the Banff National Park, home to the dramatic peaks Mt. Cascade and Mt. Rundle, and the vast waters of Moraine Lake. Canada’s oldest park is also one of its most visited and once you arrive, you will understand why. Take your time to explore the stunning wilderness with popular hikes like the Cory Pass Loop. After a long walk, relax those legs at the Upper Hot Springs or play a few rounds at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel’s impressive golf course. Other things you can get up to in Banff include horse riding, climbing and skiing in the colder months.

Next, make the short, scenic drive from Banff to Lake Louise, vivid splash of blue nestled in front of an epic backdrop of towering peaks. The best way to enjoy the lake’s beauty is to rent a kayak and get out on its serene waters. There’s also the chance to see it from an aerial perspective with the mountains surrounding it being filled with awesome hiking routes. A true outdoor paradise, there’s everything from mountaineering to caving to white water rafting available in this part of the world; more than enough to keep you busy during your two nights here.

Your next stop means that you’ll be driving for just over three hours, but the scenery along the way is a worthy sight in itself. Pass the mighty peaks of Mt. Sarbach, Murchison and Cirrus Mountain before arriving at another tranquil outdoor mecca of Jasper. Besides the stunning mountainous backdrop that surrounds it, Jasper is another action packed city, full of incredible activities. White water rafting is highly recommended here as well as a trip to the remarkable waterfalls of the gigantic glacier. The fact that Jasper is located right in the heart of a national park means that it is home to some of the best walking trails in Canada.

The next couple stops on your trail will take you onto Sun Peaks and Whistler, two areas that are well known for their ski resorts and winter fun. However, if you are making the trip in summer. There’s still plenty to enjoy off the slopes. Whistler, in particular, is abound with remarkable activities including bear viewing, biking and the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, an epic cable car ride between two of the area’s highest peaks; the views are out of this world. Whistler Village itself has a pretty interesting nightlife and arts scene, so evenings and downtime are also taken care of.

Finally, after an incredible ten days out in the beauty of Canada’s wild outdoors, you’ll be back in the city for the last three nights of your holiday, and what a city to pick. Vancouver is a thriving hub of culture and style located on Canada’s West Coast. Known for its vibrant theatre and music scene as well as a burgeoning foodie movement, Vancouver is the ideal place to cap off an incredible trip in an incredible country.
