Description of Canada family adventure holiday

This Canadian family holiday takes you from Vancouver to Calgary via some of the most spectacular hiking, biking, rafting and camping spots in the Rockies – and all while safe in the knowledge that the national park fees included in your trip go towards preserving the amazing landscapes you’re travelling through.

Your adventure starts in Vancouver before heading along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway to the ski town of Whistler, where zip lines and cable cars dip from spectacular peak to spectacular peak.

Whistler’s adrenalin-fuelled adventures are a real contrast to what’s on offer at Wells Gray Provincial Park. A vast, wildlife-filled wilderness where you’ll spend the next couple of days walking peaceful waterfall trails and canoeing.
You’ll get more of that wilderness feeling while camping in Jasper National Park, one of the quieter parks in the Rockies. Jasper is also your starting point for one of the most scenic drives in the world: the Icefields Parkway. The Athabasca Glacier (including an awe-inspiring kid-friendly hike) and turquoise Lake Louise are the highlights en route.

Banff National Park is the grand finale – the first national park in Canada. After settling into camp, take your pick from an activity roster that ranges from hot springs to helicopter rides. This is your last stop before finishing in Calgary.

This is a small group family adventure holiday in Canada, so you’ll travel with a group of 6-13 people plus an expert tour leader – great company when relaxing by the campfire and sharing stories from your busy day.

Holiday information

Small group tours:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modeled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, travelling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week holiday, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.


We are committed to offering low impact tours that benefit both the places and communities we visit as well as our travellers. It is important for us all to be aware of the delicate balance that exists in the variety of natural wonders you will visit. National Parks and monuments, archaeological sites and other sensitive areas should and must be treated with respect.

We have created a 'Travellers' Code of Conduct' to help prepare and inform our groups of the various positive or negative effects they could have on a destination. The code includes tips on everything from handling wildlife encounters to how you can help to conserve precious natural resources. Our tour leaders will explain this code of conduct during the first night’s orientation talk and encourage you to follow it throughout the tour.

This code includes following the ‘Leave No Trace’ ethic, this is an international campaign that is designed to help us minimise the impact on the National Parks and other wilderness areas that we visit. Some key guidelines we follow include keeping to existing trails, staying in official campgrounds and disposing of all waste responsibly and recycling whatever we can.


We are proud supporters of Bay Area Wilderness Training a charity based in Oakland California which works to connect disadvantaged children in the local urban area with the great outdoors. Their work helps to provide these young people with life changing experiences which they can
apply to everyday life. Everyone booking with us has the option to donate £1/$1/€1 to support this well-deserved charity and we will match this donation.

Whenever possible, we use local accommodation and activity providers. We also shop locally for groceries, eat in small family-run restaurants and visit local shops whenever possible. This all brings economic benefit to the local communities that we visit.

We spend a significant amount of time at various National Parks on this tour, the included entrance fees help to preserve the status and upkeep of the park on a continued and sustainable basis. Interaction with National Park Rangers helps to preserve this role as an employment opportunity for local people and future generations.

Our tour leaders will educate travellers on how best to interact with the wildlife in the parks, for example advising people not to feed the animals to stop them becoming dependent on hand-outs from humans
