The Chinook Pass: Banff-Kelowna-Vancouver

Tour Operator: Moose Travel Network
Trip Type: Jump on/off
Tour Cost: $199Cn
Departs from: Banff (ends in Vancouver)
Duration: minimum 2 days

Go west from Banff with Moose and experience the vast geographical diversity of Western Canada! You'll see the southwestern Canadian Rockies, an ancient interior rainforest, the ranch and grasslands of a "pocket" desert, and will finish surrounded by the Coastal Mountains in Vancouver. This trip is a jump on, jump off adventure bus transportation pass. En route between overnight destinations the bus stops for sightseeing, activities, and other adventures. The service is door to door, and pass holders receive discounts on activities, attractions and accommodation. Accommodation in hostels is pre-booked for those that want it.

Day: 1 | Location: BANFF TO KELOWNA

We leave the Rockies today, but not without first stopping to visit Takakkaw Falls, one of the highest waterfalls in Canada (seasonal). Then it’s on to the Okanagan, a Summer recreational area. (Dinner included)


Today we cruise past lakes, climb over high mountain passes and through the beautiful Manning Park. It’s then back to Vancouver and time to say goodbye to your new friends.
