Length: 7 Days
Price: $2295 cad
There is no better way to experience the true majesty of the mountains than to camp in them. By spending six nights out under the stars on a camping tour in the Canadian Rockies, you have no choice but to soak in every sunset, shooting star and full moon.
You are also in the prime location to see wildlife, like elk as they travel along the edges of rivers in the early dawn light. (Would you notice that from your hotel room?) It’s hard to beat the memories you make sitting around a campfire and hanging out with a fun group of new likeminded friends.
