One of North America’s great unspoiled wildernesses, the Canadian Rockies richly reward outdoor lovers, as this 11-day small group adventure reveals.  Setting out from Calgary, a nature-focused itinerary brings you face to face with some truly stunning sights.  In majestic Glacier National Park, ride a legendary Red Jammer sightseeing bus along the fabled Going-to-the-Sun Road.  Stay in Whitefish, Montana, an authentic mountain town, and hike along the scenic Whitefish Trail.  En route to world-famous Banff National Park, savor more striking scenery.  Highlights here include visits to photogenic Lake Louise and the Columbia Icefields, and traversing Athabasca Glacier in a special vehicle.  Jasper National Park follows, with its dramatic Maligne Canyon and a cruise on cerulean Maligne Lake.  An exhilarating cliff-edge Glacier Skywalk expedition affords spectacular views.  On the final full day, ride the Banff Gondola to Sulphur Mountain’s peak, and see two more natural wonders:  the Hoodoos and Bow Falls.
