Virtual Tour of The Canadian Rockies, Watch Live Streaming
Welcome! You are invited to join a Virtual Tours of The Canadian Rockies on Dec 29, 2020, at 07:00 PM in Eastern Time (the US and Canada). Time zone is listed in Eastern Time (New York)
Join Tour Director and travel writer Patrick Twomey for this entertaining journey where we will explore the wonders and beauty of Canada’s oldest National Parks. Banff & Lake Louise, Jasper, Yoho, Kootenay, and Waterton are considered among the most beautiful places on earth. This wild and protected landscape is arguably home to modern tourism. In the Rockies, we have snow for at least 7 months a year and when the ice melts in spring, the lakes reveal a deep turquoise that has attracted awe-inspired explorers since trains arrived in the 1880s.
During this virtual presentation, we will learn about the first inhabitants of the region, European settlement, and how the mountains formed. We will also discuss living with wildlife and walking with the bear spray!
The Canadian Rockies are a place people return to year after year. During winter we simply walk across the ice on Lake Louise, skate, or ski. In summer we walk, hike, bike and, of course, climb. Our modern communities remain small but are diverse, cultural, and fun.
Here in Banff, we guarantee a white Christmas, so come a celebrate the end of a year without travel to a place people dream of visiting.
Attendance is free, but tipping the tour guide is appreciated.
