Explore Athabasca Glacier aboard an Ice Explorer

Walk on the surface of Athabasca Glacier during a journey aboard an Ice Explorer

Learn all about glaciers and nature's mighty power when you visit the Columbia Icefield (largest icefield in the Rocky Mountains – its glacial water flows to the Pacific, Atlantic and Arctic oceans) and walk on Athabasca Glacier via a journey aboard the Ice Explorer, a vehicle designed especially for traveling across glacial ice.

Choice of activities in Jasper National Park

Day 5

Jasper, your way

It's your choice as to how to spend Day 5 in Jasper National Park – take a gentle whitewater rafting trip on the Athabasca River; go on a Wildlife Discover Tour with a wildlife interpreter; or visit the town of Jasper via the Jasper Tramway.

Fairmont Banff Springs

Days 6 and 7

Fairmont Banff Springs

Styled after a Scottish baronial castle more than a century ago, the resort’s gracious grandeur is reminiscent of bygone days. Guests may take advantage of the hotel’s numerous facilities which include a championship Stanley Thompson-designed golf course, tennis courts, and heated indoor and outdoor pools.

Our most memorable moment was having it snow in Jasper, turning the mountains into the most spectacular scenery I've ever seen.

Small Group Departures

Our small group departures, averaging just 24 guests, are designed for travelers who want more time to experience each destination up close and personally. One of the benefits of small group travel is the personalized service and attention you’ll enjoy. Small groups enable our Tauck Directors to spend more time in the places you explore with more opportunities to connect with them. Smaller groups foster camaraderie and lasting friendships among like-minded travelers; you'll engage more closely with local experts and enjoy enhanced insider access, ease of travel and freedom to linger longer.

Solo Traveler Savings

Traveling solo doesn't mean traveling alone – with Tauck, it means camaraderie on a journey with like-minded travelers who share similar interests, enjoying the spirit of travel that makes exploring the world a necessary part of life – and sharing the special travel experiences found on Tauck’s guided land trips and cruises that create lifetime memories. For 90+ years, solo travelers have found a special "travel" home with Tauck in destinations the world over – and we’re offering solo travelers an additional reason to travel with Tauck – special Solo Traveler Savings on select departures.

Airport Transfers Included

Upon arrival and departure, transfers to and from your hotel are included as noted.

What you need to know

Before You Go

Required

Travel Documents, Booking and Deposits, and more

No matter where your destination may be, you should bring identification with you; a valid passport is always an appropriate form of identification. Contact your booking agent for information about all necessary documents required for your journey, such as passport and visa information or documentation required for transportation security measures.

Important Information

Health and Activity

You'll find Activity and Pace Levels on all of our trips to give you a better idea of physical activity level – higher numbers mean a more active journey. To fully enjoy most journeys, you should be in good health and able to walk reasonable distances; some of the most memorable sightseeing can only be accomplished on foot and may include unpaved and uneven surfaces. Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.

Protect Your Travel Investment

Deposit Protection Plan

Deposit Protection Plan – Tauck provides a “Deposit Protection Plan” at a cost of AUD $75 per person per tour or cruise. The cost is non-refundable and non-transferable and must be paid at the time of booking with your deposit. It only applies when you cancel your tour or cruise prior to final payment date. The deposit held in credit will exclude fees imposed by third parties in relation to air, rail travel, hotels, transfer or applicable cruise cabins. When booking airfares through Tauck (including when taking advantage of a special offer that includes air travel), standard airline cancellation fees will apply. In some cases, airfares will be non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, these fees will be deducted from the deposit paid, and therefore the credit being held. We will only credit the remainder of deposit to a future tour or cruise booking if you book within 24 months of cancellation of the original Tauck tour or cruise. This offer expires after the 24 months. We will only credit the remainder of the deposit to a future tour or cruise booking Balance Due and it can’t be used as a credit for the initial deposit of a future tour or cruise booking. The Tauck “Deposit Protection Plan” only covers a Tauck tour or cruise and it does not replace Travel Insurance, which we recommend at the time of booking.
