DRIVING TOUR ROUTE
This tour includes the most popular sightseeing stops and many more:
1) Salmon Arm
3) Giant Cedars Boardwalk
4) Rogers Pass
We recommend giving yourself a full day to drive this section. There are many great places to stop. This tour specifically is for the highway. When you reach the Canadian Rockies National Parks, please swap to those tours for a detailed exploration of the Parks themselves.
If you are driving from the Okanagan, you will enter the tour route at Sicamous. You will still have 90% of the journey to go.
This tour is specific for the drive from Kamloops TO Banff. If you are driving away from the Rockies towards Vancouver, be sure to download the Lake Louise to Kamloops tour.
Download the app on Wi-Fi from your network at home or use any free Wi-Fi network. Because the app is filled with audio commentary and maps, its larger than "normal" apps. Many phone/data networks may block the download because of size - so its important to download over a Wi-Fi network.
++ Continued use of GPS running in the background increases battery usage - we strongly recommend taking a cigarette style (DC outlet) car charger. This is much better than simply plugging into the USB port in a vehicle.
** iPad users - please note that WiFi-only iPads will not activate the commentary automatically. Any iPhone or network-capable iPad (WiFi + Cellular - whether you have a network connection or not) will work just fine.
