Minibus Canada Tour – Western Canada Small Group Outdoor Adventure

Explore by minibus van the breathtaking natural wonders of Western Canada on our small group Canada adventure, a 17 day tour starting in Seattle, USA to Vancouver Island, British Columbia and famous national parks in British Columbia and Alberta.

Discover the natural beauty and history of Canada, with its vast open glacial fields, rugged Canadian Rocky Mountains, abundant wildlife, and old growth woodlands on a minibus tour of Alberta and British Columbia. The Canadian Rockies are part of North America’s most impressive and longest mountain chain. We follow the water’s path from fjords of the Pacific into the high Rockies on our Canada adventure.

Spend your North American holiday in the vastness of the Rocky Mountains wilderness and the luscious islands of British Columbia; experience untouched nature with a small group of like-minded people on an unforgettable Western Canada Tour. We traverse through famous national parks like Banff, Jasper, Yoho and the Pacific Rim. Join us for easy to moderate hikes through pristine snow-capped mountains, deep canyons, and along vast glaciers.

Canadian Wildlife on Tour
Because most of Canada’s wilderness has not been developed, these Canada minivan tours are the perfect opportunity to see a multitude of rare wild animals. With a bit of luck we see black bears and grizzlies, bighorn sheep, bald eagles, moose, deer, and many adorable squirrels and chipmunks. Be surprised by a moose in the morning dew in front of your lodge, or a squadron of dolphins and killer whales on one of the many ferry rides included or on an optional boat tour.
