Rainforest to Gold Rush

WESTBOUND - Jasper | Quesnel | Whistler | Vancouver
EASTBOUND - Vancouver | Whistler | Quesnel | Jasper

This three-day route takes you from one extreme to the next, in the best way possible. From the world’s largest temperate rainforest to desert landscapes. From a vibrant city to a quaint mountain town. From tranquil ranchland to some of the most untamed wilderness anywhere on the planet.

WESTBOUND

DAY 1 - JASPER to QUESNEL

 Wide-eyed, you’ll experience mountainous terrain, untouched lakes and incredible waterfalls. You’ll gradually lose altitude as you come through the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The awesome sight of Mount Robson, the range’s highest peak, will greet you. Every step of the way, your emotions will follow the extremes of the journey, from silent awe to uncontained elation. This route offers the best kind of drama—the nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat kind!

DAY 2 - QUESNEL to WHISTLER

After an overnight hotel stay in Quesnel, you’ll head south again.Turning south and east, the landscape becomes more rugged. More wild. Sheer cliffs on one side, milky-green lakes on the other. You’ll travel down the Pemberton Valley as you glide beside gorgeous Anderson and Seton Lakes

DAY 3 - WHISTLER to VANCOUVER

Having had a relaxing stay at one of Whistler's hotels, Prepare to be amazed as you make your way past massive cliffs, deep canyons, and stunning bridges. You'll roll along the scenic fjord of Howe Sound and along the foot of the Coast Mountains until arriving in the stunning city of Vancouver

DAY 2 -  WHISTLER to QUESNEL

The next day, you’ll depart from the wonderful Whistler and travel up the Pemberton Valley, as you glide beside gorgeous Anderson and Seton Lakes.
