Extra four to seven days, what to do???

Jump to last reply

I have booked a tour from Calgary to Vancouver 13-27 September and I have the possibility of flying north up to a week before the tour commences in Calgary. At this stage I'm not entirely sure what to do with the time as I could literally stop anywhere between Australia and Canada for those days. Thoughts so far include:

1. Arrive in Calgary earlier and go to banff - mountain bike, hike, look around for 4-7 days (our tour only stops one night in banff before heading through the national park).

2. Fly to New York and check it out, maybe see Niagara Falls too

3. Fly into Vancouver and do something around there (I've got a couple of nights on Vancouver Island as part of the tour). Inside passage????

4. Fly to Hawaii and catch some sun...

I've been to California plenty of times but never canada or northeast USA / Hawaii. I know this seems like some really different options but they are all viable. At this stage I'm thinking more of Canada but I really don't know. I love mountains, lakes, natural scenery, maybe some mountain biking - note I'm a single female 30 something traveller so I also want to feel safe.

Cheers for any ideas...
