NATURE'S ROMANCE PACKAGELet yourself be seduced by the sights, sounds and scents of the Rockies as you immerse yourself fully and completely into this marvellous adventure. With almost humanlike qualities, Nature can appear seductively calm and serene during her quietest moments, or wild and uncontrollable in her most magnificent hour. Anyone who's experienced either side understands the life-long love affair that can develop and at Good Earth Travel Adventures we'd like to make the introductions!Nature's Romance allows you to experience this passion through the perfect blend of secluded, rustic comfort and modern, tasteful luxury. Kananaskis Country, named after the great Cree Indian Koominakoos who miraculously recovered from a battle-axe wound which cost an eye and part of his scalp, serves up dramatic wilderness for the true mountain lover. Tantalize your soul with fantastically shaped sawtooth mountains, quiet valleys and a wonderful network of hiking trails. The seduction continues through Banff, past Lake Louise and into Yoho National Park. Native for "awe and wonder" Yoho's pleasures include brilliant green lakes, a valley of waterfalls and a variety of refreshing experiences. Finally, the Willmore Wilderness and Jasper National Park court your senses with serene beauty and a glacier-filled journey that won't soon be forgotten. Nature's Romance offers a premier wilderness vacation that will entwine you in a lusty spell of comfortable adventure and life-enriching experiences.
