Imagine riding on the Going-to-the-Sun Road in a 1930s roll-back top motorcoach across the Continental Divide, surrounded by snow-capped peaks. Imagine riding a snow coach on a glacier.

Included meals are denoted: Breakfast: B, Lunch: L, Dinner: D
We fly to Spokane, Washington, board our waiting motorcoach, and drive across Idaho's northern panhandle to Wallace, where we lodge one night. Wallace continues its 100-plus year run as the world's largest silver producer - making it the richest mining town in existence and the last town entirely listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
DAY 2 B, L
We tour the tunnels in the Sierra Silver Mine, then drive into Montana and lodge one night in Whitefish, just outside Glacier National Park.
DAY 3 B, L
We make the short drive into Glacier, where a 1930s “jammer” (roll-top bus) takes us on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. We'll travel through the great cedar and hemlock forests that lie within the Lake McDonald Valley and stand on top of the Continental Divide. At St. Mary's Visitors Center we learn about the park's geologic and human history, its wildlife and vegetation. Lunch at Johnson's of St. Mary, then we cross into Canada, visit the Remington Carriage Museum, where we take a carriage ride. One night's lodging in Lethbridge.
DAY 4 B
We visit Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, a UNESCO-designated World Heritage site. Then we take a break in Calgary with a visit to Calgary Tower before continuing to Banff to lodge for two nights.
DAY 5 B
In Banff, we can visit the Falls of the Bow River and Cascade Rock Gardens or take time to explore Banff's delightful shops. IN the afternoon, we ride gondola cars up Sulphur Mountain. The views are breathtaking as we soar to the top to experience a stunning bird's-eye view of the six incredible mountain ranges. Later we can soak in the Upper Hot Springs or return to Banff for free time.
DAY 6 B, L
Scenery along the Icefields Parkway is amazing! We stop to see Peyto Lake’s beautiful turquoise color. Then we board a large snow coach that takes us onto Athabasca Glacier. Lunch at the Icefields is a special treat. We lodge one night in Jasper.
DAY 7 B
As we depart Jasper, we stop at Maligne Canyon, the deepest canyon in the Rockies. We turn back towards Banff National Park, stop at Saskatchewan River Crossing, then on to the Chateau at Lake Louise. After free time, we drive to the town of Radium Hot Springs, B.C. and lodge one night.
DAY 8 B, D
We drive through British Columbia, return to the U.S. in Idaho and continue to Spokane for one night's lodging at the beautiful Davenport Hotel. We enjoy a Farewell Dinner tonight.
It's time for our thoughts to return home. We travel to the Spokane airport for our flight to Albuquerque.
