Extend your stay beyond CMH

Looking to enjoy the Rockies before or after your escape to CMH? We can help. Our expert vacation planners are a wealth of local knowledge and know just where to find the perfect hotel, the best views, or the locals’ favourite patio.  

Whether it’s one night in Banff or Lake Louise on your way to CMH, or a multi-day adventure to Jasper – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – get the most out of your visit to the mountains. Give us a call and let us help plan your personalized vacation, from accommodation and transportation arrangements to activity and dining recommendations. 

Here are just a few ideas (ask us...we have more!)

Discover Yoho & Banff National Parks

If you’re travelling to CMH Bobbie Burns, first take some time to explore Banff and its surrounding area before reveling in the turquoise waters of Lake Louise, the jewel of the Canadian Rockies. Drive on and stand in awe at the base of a spectacular waterfall in Yoho National Park en route to the CMH helipad. 

Suggested itinerary

Experience the best of Banff and Kootenay

Enjoy Banff’s scenery, wildlife and world-famous townsite before starting your journey to CMH Bugaboos. Bask in the sun on the shores of iconic Lake Louise, then wind through Kootenay National Park to soak in the thermal waters of Radium Hot Springs en route to the CMH helipad.

Suggested itinerary

Venture to stunning Jasper National Park

Jasper National Park is an ideal stop to stretch your legs on your way to CMH Cariboos. Home to the Athabasca Glacier, Jasper is the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies. Take a wildlife tour, do a canyon walk, or wander the charming streets of Jasper’s townsite.  

Suggested itinerary

LET US TAKE CARE OF THE PLANNING. YOU FOCUS ON UNWINDING.

The Rockies are our backyard! Let us share our local knowledge to help personalize your vacation beyond CMH with accommodation and transportation arrangements, dining recommendations and activity ideas. Our vacation planning services are available to you at no extra charge.  

Relax at the most desired locations, at the best rates

Choose your destination

Our vacation planning experts can help you book accommodation in Banff, Canmore, Jasper, Lake Louise and Golden.

However long you need

Book just one night’s stay, or a multi-night getaway.

Options for every budget

Choose from luxury stays, budget-friendly options or something in between.

We’ll pick you up

Staying somewhere first on your way to a CMH lodge? We can pick you up from any accommodation in Banff. We also make a single pick-up stop in both Lake Louise and Golden.

We’ll get you there

Your CMH trip includes transportation from Banff to your lodge the first morning of your trip, and from your lodge to the airport on the final day of your trip. Whether you plan to ride on our coach or prefer to drive yourself, let us help you plan the logistics of your journey from the airport and beyond.

Airport shuttle to Banff

We can book you a seat on the public airport shuttle from Calgary International Airport to Banff, where our CMH coach will pick you up and whisk you to your lodge. 

Private vehicle and driver

If you or your group would prefer to skip the coach and ride in a private vehicle, we can book you a driver and vehicle or multi-passenger van to suit. 

Private group charter plane

We work with a partner charter airline and can easily arrange a private flight for your group. 

Inside scoop

The Rockies are where we live and play! Our travel planners are eager to share local knowledge, tips, and honest advice you definitely won’t find on the Internet.

Take your pick

There’s an endless selection of activities to enjoy in the Rockies. Adrenaline-seekers can whitewater raft or mountain bike, while those wishing to kick back and relax can float peacefully in a canoe or sip wine on a scenic patio. Ask us about the dozens of options available to you.

Something for everyone

If you’re travelling with family or in a group with diverse interests and abilities, let us make recommendations for activities that'll keep everyone happy.

We’re here to help. Get in touch to learn how we can customize your extended summer vacation.
