Visit beautiful Banff at leisure before we meet for an afternoon tour of majestic Banff Springs Hotel, known as the Castle of the Rockies. Built in 1888 for the Canadian Pacific Railway, the hotel was designed to attract visitors to Banff. We take a gondola ride to Sulphur Mountain viewing its stunning vistas across the ranges and valley toward Banff Springs Golf Course.

Hotel: Rimrock Resort Hotel (B, D)

DAY 5 ; Monday 5 August – BANFF

Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course delivers like few courses can. You’ll be captivated from the moment we arrive at the pro shop and it’ll quickly become evident that focusing on scoring is going to be a real challenge. This Stanley Thompson designed classic offers perhaps the most naturally striking location for a golf course anywhere in the world, and nothing can prepare you for the excitement and sheer enormity of its Canadian Rockies backdrop. Once you climb to the elevated tee on the 4th and look across the glacial lake and down to the Devil’s Cauldron’s punchbowl shaped green, you will immediately be struck by what many consider to be the best par 3 in Canada.

Non-golfers: Today an amazing experience awaits you with a visit to the fascinating Columbia Icefield. There a massive all-terrain vehicle will take you out onto the Athabasca Glacier. After lunch, step out onto the glass-floored platform of the Glacier Skywalk. This is mountain adventure at its finest!

Hotel: Rimrock Resort Hotel (B, L non-golfers)

Day 6 ; Tuesday 6 August – OKANAGAN VALLEY

Another day of incredible landscapes await, as we bid farewell to scenic Banff. We make our way into the province of British Columbia before stopping along the shores of picture-postcard Lake Louise and Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park, for what is sure to be one of the most scenic lunches you’ve experienced. Following lunch and time to explore the lake, we continue through Glacier National Park to Okanagan Valley. Known as the ‘fruit basket of western Canada’ and regarded as Canada’s premier wine growing district, we settle into our spacious suites at Marriott Delta Resort, located along the stunning shores of Lake Okanagan.

Hotel: Marriott Delta Resort, Kelowna (B)

DAY 7 ; Wednesday 7 August – OKANAGAN VALLEY

Play Okanagan Golf Club’s Bear Course, the crown jewel of the valley. Planned by Jack Nicklaus’ Golden Bear Design team, the course’s dramatic sculpted fairways and sage brush hills take golfing to the next level. The Bear Course’s signature third hole is a 415m challenge requiring a combination of accuracy and distance to avoid two bunkers near the green.

Non-golfers: Today you’ll tour Lake Okanagan and enjoy lunch together.

This evening, join your Go Golfing host for a group dinner at a waterfront restaurant overlooking the sparkling lake.

Hotel: Marriott Delta Resort, Kelowna (B, D)

Day 8 ; Thursday 8 August – OKANAGAN VALLEY

Another great golf experience is waiting for us today, with the original Predator Ridge – Predator Course next on the list. Designed by Les Furber and opened in 1991, the Predator course was updated a decade later with additional challenges. The 8th hole is known locally as the “Inland Pebble Beach 18th” and will be a par-5 to remember.

Non-golfers: Enjoy a day of leisure exploring the village of Kelowna.

Tonight, unwind during an evening of leisure.

Hotel: Marriott Delta Resort, Kelowna (B)

DAY 9 ; Friday 9 August – OKANAGAN VALLEY

Amazing food + seriously good wine = sing along on the coach ride home.

Hotel: Marriott Delta Resort, Kelowna (B, D)

DAY 10 ; Saturday 10 August – WHISTLER

After breakfast, we make our way to the alpine village of Whistler with a very scenic drive along the Duffey Lake Road and through historic farming towns. Located in the coastal mountains, Whistler enjoys prestige for hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics and offers a fantastic atmosphere all-year round.

You deserve the best so we’ve elected to stay in the comfort and opulence of the Westin Resort and Spa, right in the heart of Whistler Village. Unrivalled luxury, sophistication and location, it’s little wonder the Westin leads the hotel rankings and reviews. This evening will be yours to get comfortable and experience one of the many world-class restaurants in the village.

Hotel: Westin Resort & Spa Whistler (B)

DAY 11 ; Sunday 11 August – WHISTLER

This morning’s round is at Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club. Carved out of the coastal mountain range with elevations of more than 400ft, the course provides a unique challenge whilst maintaining its reputation for fun. Designer Robert Trent Jones Jr has allowed nature to dictate the path traversing creeks, ponds, ancient Douglas Fir and granite rock faces. The course is home to a variety of wildlife including black bear and deer. Ensure your camera is in your golf bag as most of last year’s touring party were lucky enough to capture photos of majestic black bears.

Non-golfers: Experience the Scandinavian tradition of hydrotherapy baths at Scandinave Spa, Whistler.

This afternoon, we make our way to the Whistler Village gondola where we ride to the summit of Whistler mountain and board the Peak to Peak gondola. Taking us high above the clouds, and linking Whistler Mountain with Blackcomb Mountain, we’ll enjoy a beautiful dinner with incredible panoramic views of the valley and the surrounding Garibaldi Ranges.

Hotel: Westin Resort & Spa Whistler (B,D)

DAY 12 ; Monday 12 August – WHISTLER

Enjoy a morning round at Nicklaus North Golf Course surrounded by lush trees, an emerald lake and invigorating mountain air. Located only minutes from the cobblestone walkways and street-side cafes of Whistler, Nicklaus North is regarded as one of the great courses in North America. The atmosphere and hospitality is so nice that you’ll want to linger a little longer, so we’ve organised a delightful lunch on the terrace.

Non-golfers: This morning, you’ll explore shops, eateries and everything in-between at Whistler Village before meeting the golfers at Nicklaus North for lunch.

You have the rest of the day to explore Whistler Village at your own pace.

Hotel: Westin Resort & Spa Whistler (B,L)

DAY 13 ; Tuesday 13 August – VICTORIA

Enjoy breakfast before we head south along the Sea to Sky Highway along Howe Sound. We stop at the impressive Shannon Falls, one of the tallest waterfalls in British Columbia, then cruise across Georgia Strait to Vancouver Island. Keep watch for whales and dolphins frolicking in the bow waves.
After a stop in the unique town of Chemainus, home to eclectic street art and murals, we continue on to the historic capital city of Victoria and our home away from home, the Fairmont Empress Hotel. Victoria is a stunning city with historical buildings and world-famous flower gardens. The afternoon is yours to explore the stunning city of Victoria.

Hotel: Fairmont Empress Hotel, Victoria (B)

DAY 14 ; Wednesday 14 August – VICTORIA

A short drive from the hotel, we take to the fairways of Highland Pacific Golf Course, overlooking the spectacular Olympic Mountains, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Thetis Lake and waterfalls. Architect, Chris Young, created the uniquely beautiful course with the intention to maintain the 190-acre property in its natural Canadian state.

Non-golfers: Enjoy a guided food and history tour of Victoria. Victoria is still one of the most British cities in North America, but there’s more to Victoria than tearooms, antique shops and galleries (though there are plenty of those). The vibrant downtown is a magnet for aspiring artisans, buskers and unique restaurants. With daylight past 9 pm, there’s plenty of time for discovery.

Hotel: Fairmont Empress Hotel, Victoria (B)

DAY 15 ; Thursday 15 August – VICTORIA

Our final round is at Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa, set in the foothills of Mount Finlayson. Co-designed by Jack Nicklaus and son Steve, the course is widely regarded as the best in Victoria for its panoramic mountain, city and ocean views.

Non-golfers: Today you’ll board a water taxi and travel to the Float Home Village at Fisherman’s Wharf to check out the lively float home lifestyle – seals, otters and all!

After golf, we tour the world-famous Butchart Gardens set among 22 hectares of exquisitely manicured botanicals. Many of the gardens are devoted to individual countries, such as the Japanese oriental garden and refined English rose gardens.

Tonight at Butchart Gardens Restaurant, enjoy our farewell dinner, including beverages, toast the champions and celebrate new friendships.

Hotel: Fairmont Empress Hotel, Victoria (B)

DAY 16 ; Saturday 16 August – HOME

We board a ferry to Vancouver where we’ll tour the city’s highlights including Gastown, Stanley Park, buzzing Chinatown and the picturesque waterfront.

Many will be lucky to stay on in Vancouver, preparing for the post-tour Alaskan cruise. For those departing today, most return flights to Australia depart late evening, so there will be time for dinner and to freshen up at Pan Pacific Hotel before transferring to Vancouver airport for departure.

The highlight, of course, was the golf, but the added extras, gondola rides, chairlifts up on the mountains, Lake Louise, the camaraderie of all the other golfers was something to remember.  I thought the accommodation was first class, and easy access to courses and other activities.

Val, 2017

Awesome… Great golf, unbelievable scenery, and a great bunch of people on the tour. Predator Ridge accommodation was fabulous, would love to go back there. Improves your golfing. The trip was an experience we are glad we were a part of. Thank you
PS. The tour director needs to learn how to dance !!!!!! 🙂

Janet, 2017

I can’t rate this golfing holiday high enough. It was fantastic. The people I met were a great bunch. The bus driver was a terrific bloke, you couldn’t have got a more helpful person. The host was great, couldn’t do enough for you and it was nice not to have to worry about a thing. I would recommend this holiday to all golfers.

Gelske, 2017

A very professionally run golf tour company that provides us with a fantastic mix of golf and sightseeing, whilst meeting other people that shared the same interests.

Peta, 2017

The sightseeing in between the locations and the golf courses were well chosen. Enjoyable.

Angie, 2017

If you are a golfer, do it, but if you are a non-golfer, don’t come because your activities are not organized.*

JP, 2017

*We listen to feedback from the post-tour surveys we conduct and use that feedback to drive improvements to our tours. As such, non-golfing activities have been introduced in the 2018 programme.

Fairmont Hotels. Wonderful golf courses. Superb scenery. The group all got on so well, I’m still humming oh ! Lord it’s hard to be humble. Graeme was as always the superlative host, always on hand to remind you to pay your accounts. Who remembers buying a $65 bottle of wine at 10.30pm? Not me. 🙂

Jenny, 2016

The scenery was stunning, awesome golf courses, great people.

Pam, 2016

The highlights: Rocky Mountaineer, the Alaskan cruise and of course the golf courses.

Your Cruise Overview

Friday 16 August 2019  – Vancouver Port, BC

Overnight stay in beautiful Vancouver. Take the afternoon and night to explore the heart of the city.

Saturday 17 August 2019 – Departs Vancouver, BC

Your Alaska Inside Passage Cruise leaves at approx 4:30pm from the Vancouver cruise ship terminal.

Sunday 18 August 2019 – Inside Passage

The fabled Inside Passage is one of the most scenic sea-lanes in the world, and one of the few where deep-draft vessels can sail close to steep mountain walls. The scenery is unbelievable, with forests in a hundred shades of green, tumbling turquoise glaciers, and evocative towns loaded with history, culture and adventure.

Monday 19 August 2019 – Tracy Arm, Alaska

Nestled between 3,000-foot high granite walls, the narrow, twisting slice of ocean called Tracy Arm Fjord weaves through the Tongass National Forest for roughly 35 miles. The shoreline is spotted with waterfalls created by melting snowcaps and trees sprouting at odd angles from rocky outcroppings. The dramatic Sawyer Glaciers at the end of Tracy Arm are framed by mountains on either side, and are often bathed in a light mist that amplifies the blue hue of the ice. The glaciers also are home to black and brown bears, wolves, deer and moose, and seals and whales make their home in the fjord’s icy waters.

Then onto Juneau, Alaska

No roads lead to Juneau, which gives the Alaskan capital a misty inscrutability. You need to come by air or water, but when you arrive, the place will delight you with its bounty of water, forests, and mountains. Squeezed between the Gastineau Channel and Coast Mountains, Juneau offers a lot of variety in close proximity. The massive Mendenhall Glacier and the immense Juneau Icefields are at its back door. The vast Tongass National Forest stretches away to the northeast. You can shop downtown or get out and kayak, dogsled, raft, hike, whale watch, flightsee or fish. The adventures are as bountiful as the daylight.

Tuesday 20 August 2019 – Skagway, Alaska

Some of the aspiring Klondike gold rushers who made it to Skagway took a look at the 500-mile journey that still lay ahead of them and decided a change of profession was in order. So many of them set up shop as provisioners that Skagway was the largest city in Alaska by the end of the 19th century. Booms fade and dreams move on, but the glory days still reverberate through the town. Ride the antique White Pass & Yukon narrow-gauge railway, step into the Red Onion Saloon or peruse the restored buildings and wooden boardwalks of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.

Wednesday 21 August 2019 – Glacier Bay, Alaska

If you didn’t know any better, you’d think Glacier Bay ostentatious for the way it flaunts its ice. The glaciers practically terminate in your lap. A cruise to Glacier Bay National Park with Holland America Line will show you a UNESCO World Heritage Site that protects a unique ecosystem of plants and animals living in concert with an ever-changing glacial landscape.

When a monumental chunk of ice splits off a glacier and thunders into the sea the impact shoots water hundreds of feet into the air. You hold your breath as you catch the moment on film. Then you wait for it all to happen again. And it does: Glacier Bay has more actively calving tidewater glaciers than anyplace else in the world.

Thursday 22 August 2019 – Ketchikan, Alaska

Ketchikan clutches the shores of the Tongass Narrows, with many shops and houses built right out over the water. The stairways are weathered and the vibe is cheerful in the town that calls itself the Salmon Capital of the World. Besides the main attractions – Creek Street, the Tongass Historical Museum, Totem Bight State Park and Saxman Village – try a flightseeing trip to Misty Fjords National Monument. These deepwater fjords were gouged out by retreating glaciers, leaving granite cliffs towering thousands of feet above the sea and countless waterfalls plunging into placid waters.

Friday 23 August 2019 – Return Scenic Cruising the Inside Passage
