My group included: Si, Braedn, Queenie, and Jenny. They said that they want wanted to:Go on a cruiseStay in a hotelGo to VegasGo sightseeing in BanffAnd most of them said they like doing quiet activities, or doing something new all the timeThere was no budget or money limit
Based on the results of the survey, I chose a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer.
This is a trip through the Canadian Rockies that starts and ends in Vancouver. The trip is 9 days long, and it goes through Kamloops, Jasper, Banff and Yoho. This trip is suitable for all groups of people.
The trip starts and ends in Vancouver, B.C. It is a 9 day/8 night all inclusive trip. There are a number of different activities to do during the trip. The train travels through: Vancouver, Kamloops, Jasper, Lake Louise, Banff, Kamloops again, and then back to Vancouver. The accommodations are as follows:
Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre (Junior Suite) VancouverHotel in KamloopsMarmot Lodge JasperFairmont Chateau (Fairmont Lakeview Room) Lake LouiseBanff Caribou Lodge & Spa BanffHotel in KamloopsSheraton Vancouver Wall Centre (Traditional Room) Vancouver
Some of the activities on the trip are:
Going to the Columbia Ice fieldsGoing on the Banff gondolaA tour of Yoho National parkA summit helicopter flight seeing tour
The level of risk is relatively low for all the activities and the trip itself. Some risk factors associated with this trip are: going on the helicopter through the mountains, walking on the glacier, or if something goes wrong with the gondola. Factors that may hinder or prevent people from doing this activity are: money, the language barrier, or fear of heights.
Most people would be comfortable with this trip (in relation to risk) because the experience outweighs the riskPeople would be motivated to go on this trip because its a great experience, and theres little risk involved
This opportunity is available year round. Its mostly personal preference as to when the person wants to go.
This trip is suitable for:Older AdultsYounger AdultsInternational TouristsSeniors
Note that this trip is expensive, and some groups of people may not be willing (or might not be able) to spend that much on this trip.
The train departs from Vancouver, and airfare to and back from Vancouver would be about $390.The cost of the train trip itself is $5,264.00 (all inclusive).
