I loved the tour – USA and Canada Discovery. Lots of different impressions, Beautiful nature and cities. I booked a few extra nights in Chigago, I will recommend that, It is the perfect start of the vacation. Thanks to Intrepid very organized tour.
Great for a quick introduction to the island.
This was our first intrepid trip. Great team and fellow passengers. Good to enjoy the experience with other like minded people.
I really enjoy travelling with Intrepid. I feel safe whilst experiencing activities I would not feel comfortable doing alone. The tours offer ample opportunities to hike and walk which is what I like to do. They encourage you to eat locally and are mindful of the land, culture, environment and people of the area being visited
This trip is the perfect way to get a taste of the best parts of the Canadian Rockies. Each stop and the drives in between were breathtakingly beautiful. Our tour guide Dustin was super energetic, knowledgable and enthusiastic about the places we visited. Bring your cameras because you wont get views as good as this anywhere else in the world!!
This tour was exactly what I was after – a genuine experience in the heart of the Rockies. Having a leader that truly knows his stuff made a huge difference, and so did being in a small group where we all had the time to interact and become close friends.
Nervous about being a first time solo traveller, Intrepid’s group sizes and average age make it so enjoyable. You really get to experience the places and culture of where you are travelling rather than just partying that occurs from other companies. My Intrepid consultant was very easy to deal with when booking and the local tour leaders are amazing.
Our trip was absolutely fantastic! The weather throughout June was pretty great and our leader was fantastic. The trip has a huge amount of diversity in terms of the places you visit and I would 100% recommend it to anyone. The campsites and national parks are all stunning. Do it!!
The tour allowed us to cover numerous destinations yet not feel cramped, tired nor exhausted. Richard was a lovely tour guide who was caring, accommodating, friendly, insightful and very attentive to ensure that we all received value for our trip. An excellent tour in my opinion and I highly recommend. The itinerary was also not fixed and allowed for great flexibility for us to go out and explore beautiful Canada on our own.
The Canadian Rocky Mountains are spectacular, absolutely breathtakingly stunning, everything I hoped they would be. This trip affords a magnificent view of the culture, terrain and if you are lucky the wild-life of western Canada.
This trip was amazing! Alongside spectacular scenery, there were many fun activities such as hiking, overnight canoe trip, Whitewater rafting, and swimming. Camping brought the group closer together and I would definitely camp on another trip. Our leader Dustin was absolutely fantastic and he made this trip extremely enjoyable.
This trip will change your life! The scenery is stunning, the trip pace was perfect and our tour leader Dustin was beyond brilliant! This trip has made me want to do more camping trips to really experience the country and have a break from WiFi and enjoy each others company! 10/10! Dont miss out, best trip
This was a fun, but too brief visit to Vancouver Island. My trip was in early June and it was still quite rainy and cold. I think peak season in July and August would be absolutely beautiful here. I wish I had time to do the entire Canadian Rockies trip instead, it seems like there was some really stunning scenery on that one from what I’ve heard from other travelers. As always, Intrepid is a fantastic company. Met some great people in the group and our tour leader was helpful and fun! Looking forward to my next Intrepid trip!
The Rockies tour is a great way to experience the Rocky Mountains up close and personal whilst meeting some amazing new people and experiencing nature at its best.
To get a good idea of an area with the ability to spend some time doing your own or group activities is worth while on these trips. The stress of traveling and all the organisation side of the trip is sorted by the leader so as long as youre awake to jump on the bus in the mornings, there nothing to stress about!
I enjoyed travelling with Intrepid, they are a well organized tour operator and very keen on safety and environmental responsibility
I was on the Canadian Rockies trip for 15 days in the basix category. Would highly recommend for any adventurers/outdoor fanatics as this trip is the best all encompassing way to experience the west coast. The trip is a good combo of camping with basic facilities and having comfort while still embarking into Canada’s parks which have several activities to offer. Key highlights of the trip have to be mountain biking in Jasper, Remote campsite to which you canoe in wells gray pp and river rafting in Golden, BC. Bonus if you get Gordon as your guide, he did a great job of making our trip a pleasant experience!
Great trip with amazing national parks, sites and activities. A true camping experience- plan to cook, clean, pitch tents. A good amount of driving- true road trip style but good amount of time in each major place to have a day of activity between the drives. Wells Gray PP is a gem i hadnt realized until seeing it.
Some long days driving. Bring a book. Read up on local areas a bit before arriving. I was woefully uninformed about US history!
Intrepid is great, you can interact with other travellers as much or as little as you like, but the more you put in the more you get from the tour
The small group travel allows Intrepid to get deeper into into the destination areas and offers activities that larger companies either do not offer or charge extra for. The guides are very knowledgeable about the areas visited and are very flexible in giving group members an experience to remember.
Our Rockies trip was great – beautiful scenery, excellent guide and comfortable accommodation. We had considered self-driving but with this tour we saw so much more, and enjoyed being able to sit back, relax and appreciate the sights.
The intrepid canadian tour is strong like a bear (german saying, means very good!)
Amazing trip with great sights. Depending on the season however make sure to bring the right clothes and equipment such as warm sleeping bag, head torches and a thread to hang up clothes.
be prepared to enjoy and to keep an open mind for the journey.
This trip was everything I hoped for and more. Amazing guide, beautiful sites and a great crew to travel with. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to see Canada! I will definitely do another tour with Intrepid in the future.
While this is a comfort trip which may be perceived as more suitable of older travellers, some of the activities are likely to appeal more to younger travellers and only the most adventurous “grey nomads”. Thus in our group the age range was from late twenties to mid seventies but everyone seemed to have a great time and as a group we blended well, probably thanks to the skill of our leader.
This was such an amazing adventure – the mountains, lakes and canyons were spectacular and being among them for 2 weeks was fantastic. This has been one of my favourite trips and would love to return. We packed a lot in and were on the go much of the time which was good as there is so much to see. Hiking and the overnight canoe trip were great. Our guide was brilliant and the group got on really well. Camping was fine, was very cold the last couple of nights! Pack for all weathers and it will be great!
A fantastic exploration – hiking up mountains, camping in the wilderness and seeing a fraction of what Western Canada has to offer. It’s pretty full on, with little rest but the tour fits in as much as possible in order for you to see some of Canada’s highlights.
Travel light, pack for extremes of weather, expect weather changes without notice, be prepared to be flexible and tolerant with your fellow travellers.
Had a great time. Give it a go!
This trip is amazing with beautiful scenery. If you can do all the optional extras as they are so worth it! The ice glacier walk and the Ziptrek were the highlights for me 🙂
Travelling with Intrepid is an experience like no other. Like minded people are able to get off the beaten track to experience the most spectacular areas of the local country. Intrepid caters well for solo travelers, where you will meet other interesting and amazing people from around the world. Just do it, you won’t regret it!
This is an amazing trip. You get to see the best of the Canadian Rockies in a relatively short space of time! You spend a lot of time with the group so i think everyone bonds pretty quickly, you are all there for the same reason! The scenery is the most beautiful I have seen anywhere in the world, so if you’re looking to book this, then just do it.
Itinerary was exactly what it says on the website. Hassle free, safe and fun travel. Once I met our tour guy (Ron), I didn’t have to worry about rest of the trip. Well organized trip. 10 out of 10
Best way to see a lot of the rockys in 2 weeks! Stunning scenerys, impressiv views, and fun, if you like camping 😉
Thoroughly enjoyed this trip and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to experience the Canadian Rockies. Loved being in a small group and travelling in a mini bus. The canoeing overnight trip and optional white water rafting were fantastic. I loved the hikes and getting up for an early start to see sunrise at Moraine Lake. Unbeatable experiences. I hope you are lucky enough to have Charles as your leader to take you so many special sights. You do need a level of fitness to really get the most out of this trip. I also recommend a good sleeping bag and down jacket for evenings as temperatures at night went very low even in third and fourth week of August. The only thing that could have been improved would have been for Intrepid to provide a gas burning camp fire for the evenings as there was a total fire ban so we couldn’t have the usual camp fires for the whole of the trip.
The scenery on the Canadian Rockies tour was spectacular and this trip was the perfect way to see the best of the region. Even though it was a group tour, there was plenty of opportunity to adjust the trip to suit your interests. The only problem was that two weeks was not long enough.
Amazing trip- safe, well organised, fun. No camping or canoeing experience required. Trip of a lifetime really!
Easily the best group trip I have been on. I can’t recommend it highly enough; camping was fun, the small group size worked well and the activities/scenery were amazing. A very good trip for singles.
The tour is an excellent opportunity to see some of the best that nature has to offer from rugged mountains, to azure waterways to fascinating wildlife (don’t forget to lock up your toiletries!) Do every activity and participate in everything and you’ll enjoy it even more.
The Rockies are an amazing area with so many good views and places to explore.
This is the perfect trip if you want to see more than main cities of Canada. I absolutely loved it and would recommend it for anyone who loves hiking and adventure.
Canadian Rockies tour, you need to bring a sleeping bag. Also plan to bring hiking gear, swimming/white water rafting gear and bring camping gear. Gear like headlights, towel, wipe, waterproof sandals, slippers, waterproof camera and a good sneakers. We went bicycle riding in some areas on tour. There are many cool activities like Peak to Peak in Whistlers where you can take a Gondola up the Whistlers mountain and then across to the Blackcomb mountain. The Alpine trails is really fun to do on the Blackcomb mountain. On the Whistler mountain the tour to the summit and pass the glaciers and to some awesome sightseeing points is really cool to do. In the end I did come down the Blackcomb mountain and did another tour to see wild life and I saw 9 Black bears and some other animals. It gets chilly in the mountain so bring some warm clothes but in the day in some places it get warm so bring your summer clothes. This was a trip in August.
This tour offers fantastic hikes to see the incredible lakes and mountains of the Rockies. The canoe trip was an absolute highlight.
It was really cool… I met great people, saw amazing spots and had a really good time!
The canadian Rockies are full of surprises, simply nature at its best but you need to be physically fit to enjoy all the hiking on offer to reach and come close to these places
Opportunity to see and experience natural environment and meet locals. Some on tour were socially isolated due to lack of cohesion and interaction in the travelling group. More social involvement by tour leader would have helped enjoyment by all
