In 2024, Frontier Travel Camp will return to one of our favorite destinations on any continent, the beautiful mountains of Alberta, Canada. On July 23rd, 2024, Frontier will fly to Edomonton, Alberta, to start our journey. Edmonton itself is a gem of a city in the summertime. Even though our time here will be short you will be surprised by how much you love this city.
Then, we are off to the mountains for the next week. No better place that the Columbia Icefields to get our feet wet in the snow of the Athabasca Glacier. We’ll ride on a big wheeled glacier climbing bus for a tour of this magnificent location. And we’ll spend the rest of our day in beautiful Jasper.
We will then head south to Banff National Park. Banff is home to Morraine Lake (pictured above) and famous Lake Louise. As some of the most picturesque lakes we’ve ever traveled to, you can’t even think of missing this opportunity. We’ll be able to take leisurely walks around the lakes. Some may even take the option of a canoe ride, but only if you stay seated. The water is just a wee bit cold. The town of Banff is also a wonderful place to hang our hats while we enjoy the great outdoors. We may even take a soak in one of the natural hot springs that this town is also famous for.
Finally, we will travel to Vancouver, British Columbia. Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in North America as it sits at the base of the North Shore Mountains and the shores of the English Bay. With many tourist spots like Stanley Park, Granville Island, Gastown, the UBC peninsula, and Capilano Park, we will have the best time in this northwestern city.
For those of you who will only join us for this summer tour, you’ll fly home on July 6th. For the rest who will join us for the second half of the summer, we will head to Seattle, Washington, for some northwest fun and an Alaskan cruise.
