Then experience the lovely laid-back city of Edmonton. A great destination for families, with it’s massive Mall, home to an indoor amusement park and hundreds of restaurants & shops.

Our suggestion is three nights in Calgary, then four nights in Banff followed by three nights in Edmonton, but you can change this to suit you. You can choose different hotels and we’ll create an itinerary that’s perfect for you.

Highlights:

  • Step back in time at the Calgary Heritage Park Historical Village, visiting a First Nations encampment and ride a steam train through the old west - Hyperlink
