DAY 1 VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA TO KELOWNA.
Kelowna is known for two things – golf and grapes. Sip on the good stuff at a wine tasting and take in the views as we drive through Fraser Valley, over the Coquihalla Pass and into the Okanagan Valley. Get to know the crew over dinner tonight. (D)
DAY 2 KELOWNA TO GOLDEN.
Glacier National Park has the quintessential mountain peaks and lush valleys – and we haven't even reached the Rockies yet. Take in the views as we drive through Rogers Pass. (B,D)
DAYS 3-4 GOLDEN TO BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA.
It's Louise vs Moraine in today's episode of Lake's Got Talent – you be the judge as we cross through Kicking Horse Pass and the Continental Divide into Banff, Alberta. Raise your pulse with optional white-water rafting on Kicking Horse River or chill out at some hot springs. (B)
DAYS 5-6 BANFF TO JASPER NATIONAL PARK.
Ice, ice baby! First, the world’s most scenic highway – the Icefields Parkway. Second, the Columbia Icefield – the largest ice cap south of the Arctic Circle. Third, a ‘Sno Coach’ tour of the Athabasca Glacier. Take it to the skies with the optional heli-tour, and then defrost in Jasper. From museums to bike hire and more, Jasper’s options are endless. (B) (B)
DAY 7 JASPER TO KAMLOOPS, BRITISH COLUMBIA.
At over 12,000 feet Mount Robson is the Rockies’ highest peak. You'll have just enough time to selfie with a mountain goat statue and spot the moose near Moose Lake before we have a date with Kamloops. (B,D)
DAY 8 KAMLOOPS TO WHISTLER.
Pass through the small towns and indigenous communities of British Columbia en route to Whistler. It's the holy grail of ski resorts, but you'll be surprised at how much more there is to do when the snow melts. (D)
DAYS 9-10 WHISTLER.
Whistler is all about mountain biking, ziplining, or working on your tan at the beach (seriously) with the other off-season ski bunnies. In your own time, keep your eyes peeled for bears as you explore the mountains or spot the past Olympic sights.
DAY 11 WHISTLER TO VANCOUVER.
Passing Brandywine and Shannon Falls, we'll wrap up our trip along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway to Vancity. Cue sad faces and goodbyes or head straight to one of the 40-plus brew houses in this craft-beer capital.
