The day is yours to enjoy the many pleasures of Banff. Perhaps join an optional helicopter ride high over the Canadian Rockies?

Day 4: Banff National Park - Lake Louise - Jasper National Park

Travel to Lake Louise, its azure-blue waters a perfect natural mirror, refl ecting the surrounding mountains and glaciers.

Board the famous Rocky Mountaineer for a two-day, all daylight, classic rail journey from the Canadian Rockies to the Pacifi c Coast. The train follows the route of the ‘Overlanders’, 19th century homesteaders who attempted to settle this rugged region. Pass Mount Robson, at 12,972ft
it is the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies, follow the Thompson river and admire vistas of the Monashee Mountains. Overnight in Kamloops, a major cattle ranching centre. (B,L)

Friendly Faces

The best - and Archers mean the best - tour directors

You’ll love them, because they love what they do and it shows. They have in-depth knowledge of the places you’ll visit, warm, friendly natures and will be on hand every step of the way with commentary entirely in English. Archers are sure you’ll be thrilled with your Tour Directors ~ 96% of customers rate them ‘excellent’ or ‘good’.

Local guides 

There’s no better way to get to the heart of a place and its people than by way of local introduction. We’ve sought out the most friendly and fascinating people to guide the way and bring you closer to the essence of the local culture.

Authentic experiences

It’s humbling to be invited to be part of a slightly more intimate display of cultural traditions and treasures, to get up close and watch artisans refine their work or musicians expressing something that captures the spirit of their home. From local Italian chefs to traditional farmers in Myanmar, we’ve met some unforgettable characters with unique skills and have woven them into our holidays so you can meet them too.
