WHAT TO EXPECT:
It's so simple! All you have to do is start driving towards wherever you want to go. The commentary will play automatically. This includes all the instructions you need for places where you have to make important turns or if you have a decision about which route to take. Once you have launched the "Start Driving" the commentary will play automatically as you pass through the activation points. The narration seamlessly transitions from each area and Park to the next.
As you tour, you are going to see giant, classic Rocky Mountains, with their sheer faces and distinctive ridging. And there are many opportunities to see glaciers, especially around Lake Louise and on the Icefields Parkway.
Always be watching for wildlife, frequently seen enjoying grassy meadows. Grizzly Bears and Black Bears are not always guaranteed but the tour will give you tips about places where your chances are better.
There are many gorgeous lakes with colours too good to be true. Don't miss Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Emerald Lake and Peyto Lake which is at Bow Summit on the Icefields Parkway. And if you love waterfalls, the Rockies has many, and each one demonstrates amazing power.
As we drive from place to place, the tour is filled with entertaining stories about the characters from the region, the forces of nature and other tales that will give you a personal connection to this incredible location.
