Event description


The Canadian Rockies is one of the most beautiful photography destinations and the late summer/early autumn, with long golden light hours and autumn foliage is a precious time of the year. This tour focuses on the Canadian Rockies incredible landscapes, stunning waterfalls, marvellous canyons and colossal glaciers.

Join award winning blogger Marta Kulesza and award winning photographer Jack Bolshaw on their 8 day photography tour around the Canadian Rockies.

Our tour starts and finishes in Calgary where you'll be picked up/dropped off at the International Airport.

Our first base for the tour will be the stunning mountain town of Banff where we'll be photographing the many reflecting ponds, flowing rivers and colossal mountains. On the evening with the best weather conditions we will be taking the gondola up to the top of Sulphur Mountain and photographing the town of Banff from 2900ft higher.

As we'll be utilising the times of the day with the best light, we will be waking up early for the sunrise and staying up for sunset. Sunrises at this time of year are just after 7am and the days are roughly 12 hours long.

After spending 2 nights in Banff we will venture north up the Bow Valley Parkway and onto the Icefields Parkway. One of the most scenic roads in the World. The multitude of roadside stops on this stretch of road is staggering. Literally beauty in every direction. Our accomodation for the next two nights will be in the heart of Jasper, a small town with heaps of hustle and bustle.

After taking in the incredible vistas at Spirit Island and many more beautiful locations in Jasper, a truly breathtaking place, we head back down south visiting all the spots we didn't see in the Icefields Parkway until drive past Lake Louise and finally to Canmore.

We will spend 3 nights in Canmore. Many consider it to be the most picturesque place in the whole of the Canadian Rockies and you'll understand why. Jaw dropping mountains, surreal lakes, electric atmosphere and stupendous mountain vistas. We'll also be taking a trip down into Kananaski's Country looking for moose and stopping at many of the incredible roadside vistas.

During our trip free time will be given so you can go out and explore the highlights of mountain towns, purchasing souvenirs for loved ones, or take a well deserved nap.

The final day of the tour will start the same as every other day, a sunrise photography session followed by a nutritious breakfast. Guests have the option of continuing their holiday in Canadian Rockies or being taken back to Calgary International Airport. We expect to arrive at the airport early afternoon (around 14:00).

Throughout the trip both Jack and Marta will be available for any photography related questions you may have and will assist with any guidance you may require. Whether it being compositional rules, camera settings, editing techniques and even social media queries. The tour is open for all levels of photographers.

Let us at In A Faraway Land Photo Tours take away the stress of planning holidays and put you in the right place at the right time so capture moments that will last a lifetime.
