You’ll get to experience the incredible mountain towns of Jasper and Banff, linked by a journey along the iconic Highway 93. The varied landscapes of Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Idaho will soon call you back over the border to the United States, starting with a ride along the historic Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park. Experience the old West in Montana, stay the night at the Fairmont Hot Springs resort, and journey along some truly incredible roads, including the historic Chief Joseph highway and Beartooth Pass highway. Soon after, you’ll find yourself soaking up the splendor of Yellowstone, stopping to take in many a natural wonder and countless geysers.
