CANADIAN ROCKIES TOURS
CANADIAN ROCKIES TOUR ROUTE MAP
What to Expect
Our 4 tour apps in one collection for a complete guide for your road trip to the Canadian Rockies National Parks.
Banff Townsite & Surrounds Tour
We tour to the “not be missed” sites and viewpoints, man-made and natural, in and around the Town of Banff. Allow at least 3 hours to drive this loop or longer to stop and enjoy the many attractions along the way. It’s a great introduction to the National Park and a must-do orientation for any first time visitor to Banff.
Lake Louise & Yoho Tour
Iconic scenery in the Canadian Rockies; towering mountains, surreal coloured lakes and breathtaking waterfalls.
Starting in Banff, we focus on Lake Louise area of Banff National Park and the aptly named (in Cree language) Yoho National Park meaning “awe”.
Highlights include the amazingly coloured lakes Lake Louise, Moraine and Emerald Lakes, Canada’s second highest waterfall Takkakaw Falls, the corkscrew Spiral Tunnels train tunnels.
Icefields Parkway Tour
One of the world’s most spectacular drives, the praise is well deserved. Hundreds of glaciers, amazing wildlife watching, towering mountains peaks. You’ll hear stories about some of the original explorers along the way.
Jasper National Park Tour
From the Jasper townsite we’ll explore Maligne Canyon and Maligne Lake, drive above the town to Pyramid Lake and spend a relaxing few hours at the Miette Hot Springs. The wildlife in Jasper National Park is abundant so always keep an eye out for elk, big horn sheep and grizzly bears.
Calgary to Banff Tour
If arriving to the Rockies via Calgary, we also recommend downloading the FREE Calgary to Banff app. It’s a perfect way to get an introduction to Banff National Park on the 1.5hr drive from the airport or downtown Calgary. Turn by turn directions for the easiest way to get to the TransCanada Highway #1 and then stories to keep you entertained along the way.

HOW TO PLAN YOUR CANADIAN ROCKIES TRIP
CANADIAN ROCKIES DRIVING TOUR APPS
LISTEN TO SAMPLE COMMENTARY – CANADIAN ROCKIES BUNDLE
Where does the tour start?
These are 4 separate tours and each one has its own Where to Start instructions. All the tours are not required to start in a specific place, just join at the recommended start location, or join anywhere along the route. There is no set way that you must do the tours.
What is an App bundle?
A Bundle is a collection of apps that all go together. The App Store allows these apps to be purchased as a group, with just one transaction. When you download the bundle, it will create 4 different app icons, so you can select which tour you want to do as you travel into the different areas.
Unfortunately the Bundle transaction function is not available for Android.
Why can't I get the bundle on Android?
Unfortunately the Bundle feature is not available on the Play Store. But you can still download all 4 of the tours for the Canadian Rockies individually – and also the Free Calgary to Banff tour.
Should I download the tours before I leave?
Yes, that is highly recommended. You most likely have access to a good quality WiFi network at home or at Work. Since you are downloading 4 apps that are larger than “normal”, you don’t want to be relying on free Wifi in a hotel or cafe to get the tours. The apps don’t have an expiry or limited number of times you can use them, so download them before you leave so you are ready to hit the road when you arrive.
I'm not from Canada - will I need data?
There is no requirement for any data or wifi network connection while you drive. The app only requires the FREE GPS signal to operate. You can leave your cellular data function turned off – the tour will still work.
