TOURtales - Teri V.

ALL ABOARD! These words sparked such excitement as I climbed into the VIA Rail’s vintage rail car. I felt like I traveled back in time as I viewed the spectacular scenery of the Canadian Rocky Mountains passing by. I saw winding river bends and the picturesque mountain towns of Banff and Jasper while we searched for wildlife in the backdrop of two National Parks. There is so much jaw-dropping beauty along the Icefields Parkway, it’s no wonder why it is considered one of the most scenic drives in all of North America! There are so many spirited shades of color in glacial waters – mesmerizing blues, greens, and turquoise that you have to see to believe! Feel the energy of the vibrant harbor cities of Victoria and Vancouver as you travel by ferry through coastal waterways. Come experience milestone firsts: walking out on an actual glacier, trekking across the Capilano Suspension Bridge, trying out poutine for lunch, and smelling the fragrances of hundreds of flower varieties at the Butchart Gardens®. If you let yourself be open, this tour can connect your soul in new ways to nature, to history, to new cultures, and to your fellow travelers.
