In the mountain resort of Sun Peaks, you'll overnight after a beautiful drive that includes passing Mount Robson, the Canadian Rockies' highest mountain at 12,972 feet. You'll also overnight and have a full day in Whistler, host of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

A tour highlight is a stop at the Columbia Icefield, the largest expanse of ice in the Canadian Rockies. Here, you'll ride the Ice Explorer that travels on ice that is 1,200 feet thick. You'll also travel to the Pacific Coast, where you'll sail across the Strait of Georgia to Victoria for a sightseeing tour, two overnights, free time to discover some of Victoria's most popular attractions, and a visit to Butchart Gardens, rated as one of the most beautiful gardens in the world.
