YOUR ITINERARY

DAY 1

Vancouver to Kelowna

We’ll escape the city on Day 1, and head deep into Canadian nature as we travel east through the Fraser Valley. At our first stop, we’ll take a short walk in a west coast rainforest to check out the beautiful Bridal Veil Falls in scenic Provo Canyon. Then, through the Coastal Mountains we go, stopping in Manning Park for lunch at Lightning Lake. Now -who’s for some water sports? That’s up next when we arrive in the semi-arid grasslands of the Okanagan where we’ll go paddle boarding on Skaha Lake! Finally, we reach Kelowna where we’ll settle for the night, leaving you free to explore the sight and sounds of this vibrant university city.

 

Activity & Meal Inclusions: Paddleboarding, Dinner

Moose Accommodation: Samesun Kelowna

DAY 2

Kelowna to Banff

Busy day today! We’ll be in two provinces, crossing three mountain ranges, and travelling through four National Parks as we continue east to Banff. Leaving the Okanagan, we’ll stop en route in Revelstoke, where you’ll have the option to go lake kayaking surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery. Continuing onwards, we’ll finally enter the Rocky Mountains and cross over the Kicking Horse Pass into Alberta and Banff National Park. Tonight, our tour finishes in the historic town of Banff, deep in the heart of the mountains for a scenic finish to your adventure-packed 2 day Moose tour!

 

Meal Inclusions: Breakfast at Samesun Kelowna

Moose Accommodation: None. You will need to make your own reservations for tonigh.  We recommend that you do not book onward travel in case of travel or weather delays.

 

We also recommend booking at the HI Banff Alpine Centre where your fellow travellers doing a longer pass will be staying.

ACTIVITIES

The Roadrunner tour offers fun outdoor activities en route from Vancouver to Banff. Experience the best of summer in Briitsh Columbia with paddleboarding on Skaha Lake in the Okanagan (included) and go hiking through incredible scenery on your way into the Rockies. Take in the breathtaking mountain vistas while kayaking on a pristine blue lake or choose to add on adventure activities like horseback riding and whitewater rafting after finishing the tour in Banff. (Note: some of the activities below are only available after finishing the tour in Banff).

Optional activities are booked and paid through your Moose tour guide while on the tour. No need to pre-book! The following optional activities are available on this tour:

ACCOMMODATION

On the accommodated tour option, accommodation is included for all nights of the tour, in mixed gender, hostel dormitory rooms. Please note that you can request female only dorm rooms, and this is usually possible to accommodate, but we cannot guarantee it.

Most travellers book the accommodated tour option because it provides the best value for your money since we receive discounts from our accommodation providers that aren’t available to the general public. We choose hostels for their budget value, as well as offering great facilities and a warm, friendly atmosphere. By staying in shared dorm rooms you get a chance to meet more people, hang out with other tour guests, and keep the price as low as possible.

Not Interested in Staying in Shared Hostel Dorm Accommodation?

If you’d prefer to book your own accommodation, to stay in private rooms or in alternative properties, check out the non-accommodated version of this tour by clicking here.

IMPORTANT NOTES

The Roadrunner is the first 2 days of the 8 day Caribou tour, and is part of numerous combination tours we offer. Some of your fellow travellers will have already explored Vancouver Island and/or Whistler together. After you finish in Banff, many travellers will continue towards Jasper the following day.

All tour finish times are approximate. We strongly recommend that you DO NOT book onward travel on the final day of the tour, since traffic or other unexpected circumstances may cause delays.

Please note that our itineraries can change and/or activities can be cancelled without notice as a result of circumstances beyond our control, such as weather, traffic and unforeseen events. If this does occur, there may be alternatives available, or you may get to enjoy more free time to explore on your own!

This tour finishes in Banff. The closest airport is in Calgary (YYC). Moose travellers receive a discount on the Banff Airporter shuttle, which offers door-to-door service between Banff and Calgary airport. You will receive details after booking your Moose tour.

If you’re flexible about when you can travel, consider the pros and cons of our travel seasons. In Low Season, you’ll get the BEST VALUE on our tours, there’s less traffic, and far fewer people at the most popular sites. The trade off is that the weather is typically more variable, cooler and wetter. Plus, a few sites may be closed, and the glacial lakes may still be frozen in the spring, although that’s also beautiful! In Peak Season, everything is open, the weather is more consistent, warmer and generally drier, and the glacial lakes are in their full glory. However, our tours cost more, traffic is busier, and the most popular locations on our itineraries can be very busy. Mid Season is somewhere in between.

We take your safety, and the safety of our staff and partners very seriously. Click here for more information.
