This Canadian Rockies & Glacier National Park tour delivers the pristine wilderness of several national parks and the soaring beauty of the Rockies on both sides of the Canada/U.S. border. In Canada, overnight in Waterton Lakes National Park, with its rugged mountains and beautiful water. Visit the historic mining town of Fort Steele, Kootenay National Park, and Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump.
