Fairmont Hotels & Resorts Fly Drive Holiday | The Jewels of Western Canada

Holiday Duration: 14 Nights



An amazing fly-drive adventure incorporating Lake Louise, Jasper, a Rocky Mountaineer train ride, Whistler, Victoria and Vancouver, which is perfect for a spring or autumn getaway.

Start your holiday in Calgary at the Fairmont Palliser, in the heart of the city, before heading over to Lake Louise where the view of the snow-capped mountains rising high above the deep blue waters from your Lakeside room at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is stunning. You will drive through towering Rocky Mountains along the renowned Icefield Parkway to Jasper and the relaxed elegance of the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, a woodland haven to savour. From here take the two day Rocky Mountaineer trip – sit in the GoldLeaf domed carriage as the scenery slips by, en route to Whistler – a truly memorable experience.  Staying at the delightful Fairmont Chateau Whistler, you can whet your appetite golfing, biking, hiking, canoeing and rafting, or simply relaxing in the spa. You will then be whisked by sea plane across to Victoria on Vancouver Island where you will arrive at the luxurious Fairmont Empress and your Harbourview room. Round off this trip of a lifetime in the vibrant city of Vancouver, where you can choose a room overlooking the harbour, Stanley Park and the mountains beyond.

This itinerary is flexible and can be tailor-made to suit you; if you want to add extra days in one area, extend the holiday or maybe change the direction of travel. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.

"the arrangements worked perfectly"

I am pleased to say that all the arrangements worked perfectly from start to finish. The Atlantic Tours itinerary was excellent and a special mention should go to both our guide (Marion) and driver (Don) who managed everything and everybody with not only professional aplomb but also a great sense of humour. The hotels were of a very good standard as was the food that was included - suffice to say that we are now working to remove some of the extra poundage gained as a result of our indulgences! We would not hesitate to recommend your services and will be more than happy to use them again in the future.
