Travel through the lush Fraser Delta Region and the towering peaks of the Coastal Mountains, before entering the Fraser River Canyon. Follow the Fraser River until the town of Hope for a short rest and to view the spectacular coastal mountains around us. From Hope continue upwards to the sub alpine region via the Coquihalla Highway. Along this route watch the landscape change dramatically as you gain altitude. Travel from lush coastal forest, to sub alpine, to Canadian desert en-route to your destination at the historic, train-era, Plaza Hotel, in downtown Kamloops.
