Day 1



We leave the Rockies today, but we’ll go out with a bang, stopping at some of the most breathtaking scenic points in Western Canada.  We will visit the Takakkaw Falls (seasonal), the pristine Emerald Lake and the Natural Bridge, as well as stopping for a photo at the stunning Kalamalka Lake viewpoint once we reach the Okanagan Valley.  Here you will find beautiful sandy beaches on crystal clear lakes and plenty of sun-filled activities! Night time it’s downtown Kelowna for a plethora of bars and nightclubs in this university city!


Note: during April/May and from mid-September onwards, we will visit Kootenay National Park instead of seeing Takakkaw Falls, Emerald Lake and the Natural Bridge.


Moose Accommodation: Samesun Kelowna

Day 2



On our final day, we’ll climb over a high mountain pass, travel along the Nicola Valley and enter the Fraser Canyon. Our main destination of the day is Tuckkwiowhum Village, an Indigenous heritage site, where we’ll enjoy a guided tour and interact with a Traditional Knowledge Keeper. We’ll then continue down the canyon to Hope, where we’ll explore the Othello Tunnels on a magical walk across bridges and through old train tunnels that cut through solid granite walls! The finale is near – we’ll finish in Vancouver where it’s all hugs and Insta handle swapping as you say goodbye to your Moose mates and head home – but armed with a whole bunch of amazing adventures to talk about!
