Western Self Drive Adventures

We have created unique Self-Drive tours, originating from Calgary, that range in length from 7 to 14 days (with optional add-ons available). These tours include natural and historic sites, working guest ranches and B & B's, rodeos and native powwows, the Rocky Mountains, fine dining on local cuisine, shopping, and much more.

What's special about these tours you may ask? What's special is that you are accommodated in one location for the major portion of your itinerary. That's right, each day is filled with new and wonderful adventures, and then you come home to a great meal and a relaxing and restful evening at a guest ranch/lodge (some of you may know them as “dude ranches”) or B&B in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies.

Albertans have always made sure that their guests feel at home. We have taken that one step further by ensuring each day starts and ends on a leisurely note. No more packing and unpacking, just western adventures and relaxation.

But that’s not all; we also provide two additional options to assist you with planning your Alberta and Rocky Mountain self-drive holiday. You can check out the exciting itineraries available on our Classic Adventures pages, or you can plan a unique Custom Designed personal tour by having our knowledgeable advisors assist you with designing your ideal western experience itinerary.
