Day 1 – Edmonton to Waterton National Park
Welcome aboard your coach as your tour begins in Edmonton. Travel south on Hwy 2 through Red Deer, Calgary & Okotoks. From Okotoks we will take Hwy 7 west to Hwy 22. Referred to as the “Cowboy Trail” we will continue to Black Diamond for an included lunch. Afterwards, we will continue our journey to Crowsnest Pass and a stop at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre. Learn about the rockslide that buried part of the mining town of Frank in 1903, when 82 million tons of limestone slid down Turtle Mountain. This is one of the largest landslides in Canadian history. From here we will continue south towards Pincher Creek before arriving into Waterton National Park, your destination for the next 3 nights.
Day 2 – Waterton
Today we will be exploring Waterton starting with a morning boat cruise with Waterton Shoreline Cruises. Enjoy some of the most spectacular mountain scenery the Rocky Mountains have to offer. After lunch we will continue exploring the area with a visit to Red Rock Canyon, Cameron Lake, Cameron Falls, the Bison Paddock and Prince of Wales Hotel.
Day 3 – Cardston & Hillspring
Enjoy a leisurely morning with possibly a walk on the Townsite Loop or the Waterton Springs Interpretive Trail or maybe some shopping in town. After lunch we will head to Cardston with a visit to the Remington Carriage Museum. The Museum houses the largest collection of horse drawn vehicles in North America. Situated on 20 acres of prime parkland in Lee Creek Valley, the pastoral setting completes the picture of a long-past era. Leaving here we will head to Hillspring to enjoy the Music Legends Dinner show. The evening begins with a famous western dinner followed by the members of the Kunkel clan, a family bursting at the seams with talent, entertaining you.
Day 4 – Waterton to Home Cities
Today we depart Waterton and begin our journey back to Edmonton, with our first stop in Fort McLeod and a visit to the Smashed-In-Head Buffalo Jump World Heritage Site. This is one of the oldest, most extensive & best-preserved sites illustrating the ways of the Indigenous people of the plains. The buffalo jump was used for years to kill buffalo by driving them off the 36 ft. high cliff. From here we will make our way to Fort McLeod for lunch and then to Calgary for drop offs, before continuing on to Hwy 2 north to Edmonton, returning home with new friends and fond memories of your Waterton National Park tour.
