What's this trip about?

    Go whitewater rafting, glacier walking, moose watching, horseback riding and some other stuff. Trust us. There will be no shortage of great stories to tell after your family vacation to the Canadian Rockies. This tour has a very high "cool" quotient. Think suspended gondola rides over a mountain lake…wildlife spotting…and stories around a lakeside campfire. It's so great to expose children to a spectacular environment like this—pristine, quiet, remote. And the adults will get plenty of pleasure too; your stress just falling away on a walk through a limestone canyon or at a romantic dinner as the sunset is reflected in a mirror-smooth lake. And all of you will get a summer vacation you'll remember for a lifetime.
