Tour Itinerary

Just because the Canadian Rockies is home to some of the most rugged terrain in North America doesn’t mean you have to rough it! Under brilliantly lit skies, you’ll relish three of the region’s most coveted five-star resorts on this pampering tour of the Canadian Rockies. With overnight stays at the renowned Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, and the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, also known as the “Castle of the Rockies,” you can expect nothing less than the royal treatment. Majestic views await as you enjoy a guided walk along the turquoise waters of Lake Louise, a peaceful cruise on the gleaming Maligne Lake, and a thrilling Ice Explorer ride through the vast Columbia Icefield – while exceptional creature comforts welcome you back from the wilderness. Balancing the great outdoors with the grand indoors, this Canadian Rockies vacation is the perfect marriage of peaks and pools, conifers and concierge, and sparkling lakes and spas.

Health and Safety Protocols for Globus Tours

Today's world has changed, but what remains certain is Globus' commitment to guest safety, comfort and peace-of-mind while traveling with us. To that end, Globus has established a worldwide Assurance program, with enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures, to ensure the health – and happiness – of guests throughout their travels with us.

It all starts with Globus' Global Health & Safety Team, dedicated to ensuring that cleanliness of all operations exceeds today’s travel standards—from start to finish. The following areas address Globus' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Globus will enact new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start to their journey, including adherence to social distancing requirements.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

Globus will ensure safe distances for guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for guests use at any time where social proximity could be an issue as well as the possibility of reducing group sizes, if required. And wireless listening technology – including Globus' Go Beyond Devices in Europe – enables safe distances between guests and other travelers on excursions.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH

To ensure a healthy environment for team and guests, Globus will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Globus' team members when with guests.

TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS

Traveling with Globus removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. Globus are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. Globus will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

As a part of Globus' commitment to clean, Globus is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.

PARTNERS IN DISCOVERY AND IN HEALTH

Globus has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of operation- from vehicles and equipment used on trip to excursions and hotel procedures. This process will continue with new, elevated health and safety checks, to maintain their promise that each touch-point on tours and cruises are considered in their commitment to guest and team member well-being.

Questions & Answers

Question: Is the luggage handled and taken to and from the bus and room? Heard you need to request a scenic view room at the different hotels? Also saw in reviews the Jasper hotel needs renovating?

Typically there are porters who will handle luggage from bus to hotel and hotel to bus. Some hotels may not have porters or may be temporarily unavailable.

Question: Is there online information about the optional excursions on the Great Resorts of the Canadian Rockies Tour? We are taking this tour starting September 6.

For more information on optional tours, please give us a call at 1-800-935-2620 and speak with a travel consultant.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Great trip but wish we had better weather. Jennifer, tour director was very thorough and informative. Lodging was top shelf. Abundant food at Hugh quality. Canadian Rockies amazing!

Everything about this tour met or exceeded our expectations.

Was a wonderful trip, but the accommodations in Jasper need to improve.

There was a problem with WestJet. We had a problem right off the bat at Richmond Airport. Delta wouldn't give us boarding passes because they said that WestJet had made a change and they didn't give Delta the correct paperwork on the computer. There were long phone calls to WestJet from me and the Delta agent trying to get it sorted out--WestJet said they had not made a change. Eventually it was fixed, after a supervisor got involved. But it was stressful for us. Also, I called the night before the Richmond departure to confirm the flight and was confused because my itinerary said all the flights and flight numbers were WestJet, but the agent gave me different flight numbers for the Delta segments, which was confusing to me. As for the accommodations, I was surprised not to get accommodations with a lake view at Lake Louise, and a mountain view at Banff Hotel. Our first night at Banff was spent at ground level in the new wing with a view of the parking garage. Our Globus guide managed to change our room the second night to one in the older part of the hotel with a great view, which was my preference. Otherwise, this would have spoiled my trip as the historic Banff hotel was THE most important part of the trip for me, which is why I booked a resorts tour (otherwise it would might just have been a Canadian rockies tour.) It's like the hotels gave us whatever rooms were available, without any preference given the tour operator's group (our group was split up all over the hotel). We wished a second night was built into the Lake Louise stay. Otherwise, the trip was wonderful and our Globus guide was fantastic.

I met several people on the tour who have travelled with Globus previously and have been pleased. While our tour director was very knowledgable. he lacked appearance and organization. It seems we were constantly asking about times for dinner and where it was to be. He also reeked of tobacco, and dressed sloppily. I understand this was his last tour with Globus in the Canadian Rockies, so maybe it won't make a difference. He did have extensive knowledge of the area but lacked people skills. As for the Globus booklet there were some shortcomings, specifically in fully explaining the optional tours and what days they were on. We had some concern on the final tour for dinner at Beckers and a bus ride to spot wildlife when the driver pulled off into a secluded area to show us bones and antlers. It almost seemed like a hijacking. Unsettling.

Jasper Park Lodge was not up to, what I consider Fairmont Standards. Furniture was worn, no robe in room, no stationery. More like Motel 6
