A fantastic holiday seeing some amazing sights as captured in over 1,100 digital images!. We did so much in 14 days and covered a good section of the Rockies. We could have spent longer in each area but the itinerary gave us a good taster of them all. Great hotels in all locations from a cozy lodge in Jasper to the high end Nita Lake Lodge in Whistler. All hotels well located with great facilities and excellent service. We very much look forward to going back to Canada and to using Frontier Canada again. Thank You!
Just wanted to let you know that we had an amazing time in Canada. Thank you so much for arranging it for us. All the places you booked were great & we appreciated the variety. To experience the peace & quiet of Clearwater Springs Ranch (with only 3 rooms) & then go to the enormous but swanky place in Whistler was such a contrast, but we really enjoyed seeing the differences. We packed in a huge amount including the Banff Gondola (got snow at the top), a boat safari (where we saw a bear for ages), Quad biking in Whistler & so much more. So all in all we had a fabulous time & we have some amazing photos to remind us of it. Thank you again for all your organising. Good job!
Thank you so much for a fantastic holiday in Canada. The itinerary ran like clockwork and we so enjoyed the landscapes, accommodation and extra trips
We had a fantastic holiday in the Rockies and Vancouver and your arrangements were perfect. You really know your stuff.
