CANADIAN ROCKIES BUNDLE
We have produced 4 tours to cover all the best sightseeing in the Canadian Rockies National Parks.
For iPhone and iPad users, the Canadian Rockies Bundle includes downloading all 4 of these tour apps in one transaction. Unfortunately this function is not available for the Play Store, so Android users will need to download each tour individually.
With 520 commentary points throughout Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise, Yoho and the Icefields Parkway, all your self drive sightseeing guiding throughout the National Parks is covered.
The tours are not direction specific, so it doesn’t matter whether you start your sightseeing in Banff, Lake Louise or Jasper.
You can learn more about each tour’s highlights by clicking on the links below or read our blog about driving itineraries in the Canadian Rockies.
If arriving to the Rockies through Calgary, we also recommend downloading the FREE Calgary to Banff tour app.
Unfortunately the Bundle function is only available on the App Store. Android users can download the 4 tours individually on the Play Store.
CANADIAN ROCKIES HIGHLIGHTS
4 Tours cover all the best sightseeing in Banff, Jasper and Yoho National Parks. All you have to do is launch the tour that corresponds to the day of sightseeing you have planned. Eg, if you are driving the Icefields Parkway, launch the Icefields Parkway Tour app. If you are exploring around Lake Louise, use the Banff, Lake Louise & Yoho tour app.

CANADIAN ROCKIES TOUR ROUTE MAP
Indicate our suggested start locations, or join the tour anywhere along the route and as you pass through the next point, commentary will trigger automatically.
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.
