Canadian Rocky Mountains Honeymoon
Call 01242 547 760 to speak to a specialist
Canada makes a dream honeymoon destination for nature lovers – famously friendly natives and knock-your-socks-off landscapes lead to unforgettable adventures and its charming accommodations are delightfully cosy places to bed down in at night. Strike out on your first road trip as a married couple and wind your way through mountains and canyons past magnificent scenery – azure lakes, snow-capped peaks and rolling hills.
We suggest you whizz out of Calgary, the Stampede City, as soon as you can to the crystal clear lakes and jaw-dropping mountain views of Banff, located in Alberta’s Rocky Mountains. Banff is home to divine hiking trails, numerous photo opportunities and romantic hot springs to relax and rejuvenate with your partner. We’d recommend taking a ride on the Banff Gondola, where you’ll have panoramic views of the Bow Valley.
Canadian Rocky Mountains Honeymoon Highlights
- Explore the landmarks and historic sites of Banff, taking the gondola to Sulphur Mountain and experiencing the hot springs.
- Hop aboard the Ice Explorer to visit the Athabasca Glacier.
- Search for iconic Canadian wildlife in Jasper National Park including bear, elk, beaver and coyote.
- Take the Rocky Mountaineer train through spectacular mountain scenery.
- Spend time exploring the cosmopolitan coastal city of Vancouver.
- Experience hospitality of one of the friendliest countries in the world.
The drive to Jasper National Park is exceptional and as you scoot along the spine of the Canadian Rockies you will traverse the amazing Icefields Parkway, which features more than 100 ancient glaciers. Be wowed by waterfalls cascading from dramatic rocks and shimmering emerald lakes flashing past your window. Make sure you stop in at Peyto Lake, a glacier-fed expanse of mirror-like turquoise water, one of the most picturesque lakes in Canada. Here you can take moonlit evening wildlife tours to seek out the park’s most iconic creatures, from bears to elk, coyotes and beavers. Being the largest national park in the Rockies and home to some of its wildest landscapes there are many worthwhile corners to discover with the freedom of your own vehicle.
Experience a scenic rail journey to Kamloops in the interior of British Columbia on the Rocky Mountaineer. Leaving Jasper National Park, you could trundle along the Yellowhead route past the sprawling grandeur of Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, and follow the mighty Thompson River, the route of early fur traders. Finish your big sky adventure in cosmopolitan coastal Vancouver, a great finale to your trip with its thriving multi-cultural ambiance, top-notch restaurants, shopping, nightlife and a welcoming mild climate.
