This tour tries to squeeze too much in order to combine the Rockies and the coast, when in reality the two should be visited separately. This tour should be ditched as a badly conceived concoction. Accommodation was frequently substandard and, on one occasion, overcrowded. In addition, the cramped minibus was very uncomfortable for the long journeys involved. Unless Exodus sorts all this out I would recommend you avoid this trip.

THERE WAS A LOT OF TRAVELLING AS YOU STATED BUT THE BUS WAS ONLY JUST BIG ENOUGH FOR 13 TRAVELLERS. tHE ACCOMMODATION WAS MOSTLY VERY GOOD..WE WERE ALL DISAPPOINTED BY THE ABSENCE OF WILDLIFE IN SOME AREAS SUCH AS BELL A CCOLA.

The highlights of this trip speak for themselves and were excellent – we particularly enjoyed Maligne Gorge near Jasper, walking at Lake Louise, walking on Athabasca Glacier, the ferry from Bella Coola to Vancouver Island, the raft trip, the whale watching trip and the optional sea kayaking. However, Canada is vast, so don’t underestimate the time you spend travelling. There are a number of VERY long days in the minibus, which can be quite cramped if it is full to capacity. With a maximum of 2 nights stay in any one location, you are always either unpacking or packing, and with various early starts it is quite a tiring holiday. What it does do is give you a great overview of this area of the Rockies and Vancouver Island. There were some great locations worthy of spending more time in, perhaps in future
