GLOBUS 2023: Majestic Rockies with the Calgary Stampede (CVX)
14 Day Tour from Vancouver to Calgary
Sugar, cream, or clouds in your coffee? On this majestic tour of the Canadian Rockies, you can relish all three. A sunny gondola ride to breakfast atop Banff's Sulphur Mountain, a private breakfast at Whistler's Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre, and a special dinner inside the original greenhouse at Victoria's lush Butchart Gardens are just some of the ways to devour the elevating scenery on this vacation through Alberta and British Columbia. Bold and breathtaking views are served from Vancouver to Calgary as you savor the sparkling lakes of Sun Peaks, the glacial wonder of the 750-foot-thick Columbia Icefield, the alluring blue hue of Lake Louise, and the magnificent canyons and gorges of Jasper National Park. A panoramic cruise along the crystal waters of Maligne Lake to remote Spirit Island - one of Canada's most cherished and photographed places - is everyone's favorite course on this journey through Western Canada. It's only fitting to add the 'Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth' to your great outdoors Canadian Rockies tour. Break in your boots and break out your 10-gallon hat for the Calgary Stampede, a 'Wild West' festival that tips its Stetson to more than a century of cowboy culture and heritage. From bucking broncos to daring dishes, the world's largest rodeo - and one of Canada's largest music festivals - promises a delicious feast for your eyes, ears, and taste buds.

Early Airfare Price Guarantee locks in a price that is guaranteed not to increase. Air pricing and schedules are available approximately 330 days prior to last travel date in the itinerary. At that time the best air price will be utilized and a new invoice with the air cost and confirmed schedule will be sent. The identity of the carrier, which may include the carrier's codeshare partner, will be assigned and disclosed at this time. If the guaranteed price is the lowest, the schedule with the lowest fare per contracted classes of service will be booked. Any voluntary change to the confirmed flights negates the guaranteed price and is subject to air pricing at the time of the change.
