There are only a handful of routes from the Pacific to the Prairies via the Rocky Mountains and we offer them all, along with hotels, lodges and cabins in any combination and for any duration you choose. This particular route is outstanding because in addition to the heart of the rockies you’ll explore sections of the spectacular highway 3 near the US border, curving mountain roads through the jagged Cascade Mountains, Kootenay Pass and the Blueberry Paulson Pass. The route hugs the shore of Lake Okanagan and skirts the lovely Arrow Lakes which you’ll cross by ferry (free) on your way to the Kootenays. Head north to Hot Springs and on to Banff National Park and Calgary.
