This tour is hosted by: Daniel Goh


Daniel is a Singaporean currently living in Calgary, Alberta for over 10 years. Family and friends have always admired him for being able to enjoy and constantly be awed by the magnificent mountain scenery close to where he live. As he has seen the beautiful sights in the mountains and has been on numerous amazing adventure activities there, Daniel would like to share his  experiences by personally showing you this pristine beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, on a guided adventure trip. We believe, by the end of the trip, many of you would begin to appreciate and treasure the wonders of the natural world.


This 9-day / 8-night adventure itinerary was designed by Daniel in an effort to encompass all the different elements of the mountain wilderness experience and balance that with a fair amount of fascinating sightseeing. Hence, the accommodation has been specially arranged to include both camping in the outdoors (a rare opportunity in Singapore) as well as staying in the main towns of Banff and Jasper National Parks.

Mountain Wilderness Experience


You will get to camp in an RV; bike along forested trails and beautiful lakes; hike to stunning waterfalls, pristine alpine lakes, and majestic mountain tops; canoe leisurely on tranquil lakes; get on a raft for a wild ride down a river; and if you’re lucky, watch wildlife as they appear wherever you may be in this mountain wilderness. All these may sound very familiar, as many of us have watched movies with a similar background. But now you are walking into the movie and will be experiencing these mountain wilderness first hand - an awesome experience that will be the envy of your friends.

Fascinating Sightseeing


The WoW! factor is sky high here in the Rockies. Guaranteed! –a day won’t go by without you being overawed by the view before you. Our sightseeing trips will cover both Banff and Jasper national parks –both are on the UNESCO world heritage list. We will also ride on a Gondola (cable-car) in Banff to get on top of Sulphur Mountain, visit the spectacular Lake Louise and Lake Moraine (where we might have the chance to canoe on one of them), and make the epic journey on the world-renowned Icefields Parkway – where you’ll catch the best of snow-capped peaks, ancient glaciers, and broad sweeping valleys. A once in a life awesome experience that you can proudly share the beautiful photos with your family and friends.
