A. ALLERTON, General Supt
Canadian Pacific
Hotels, Montreal. I-
It was in 1745, when the French regime was
drawing towards a bloody-flowered close in Quebec, that Michael Novidskof sailed eastward in
his moss-calked, skin-sewn shallop in pursuit of
sea otter till he touched the antenna of a continent, in the Island of Attu. Other Russian fur
traders followed. The whole slender, volcanic
Aleutian chain gradually became known to them
—flat, mist-drenched islands, given over in the
main to seals and sea birds. But though Russia
touched Alaska, she turned back across the Pacific
and there is no record of her having entered
British Columbia.
Meantime France was reconnoitering fr«pm the
east. La Verendrye crept across the vast prairies,
sighted the foothills, saw, perhaps, the looming
peaks beyond. Later, in 1751, de Niverville followed, made his way up the muddy waters of the
Saskatchewan, built Fort Lajonquiere and would
doubtless have ventured into the wonderland of
the Rockies but that tidings out of the east called
him to help Montcalm against the invading British. Thus France, too, came to the gateway of
the Land of Promise and passed by on th6 other
side. In 1774 the Indians of British Columbia
sighted their first vessel, a great-winged bird of
happy omen they thought, bearing its Spanish
captain, Juan Perez, in search of new land in
which to plant a cross and raise gold. I ft 1769
the colonization of California began, but wras not
pressed northward, halcyon shores to the south
being more attractive to the good friarb who
loved gardens as well as souls. Thus Spain came
to British Columbia, traded in furs at its doorway
and sailed away again.
Fate had reserved the conquest of tremendous
peaks, the settling of warm, secluded, sundrenched fruit valleys for the only race fitted to
join them up to the rest of the world by rail—the
In 1792 Captain Vancouver sailed from England

his name as a gift for a great island and a greater
city on the Canadian Coast. A year later Alexander Mackenzie, seasoned by terrific hardships

KftSift   ...... ....•-
TOURS     through
Mackenzie River, in its rush to the Arctic, pushed
through the Rockies by the Peace River Pass and
stood beside the Pacific. He was a partner in
the North West Company, great rival of the
Hudson's Bay Company, and northern British
Columbia soon became a kingdom ruled by a
monarch, the Scottish Chief Factor, who knew
nor fear nor favor and lived for naught but furs.
Simon Fraser was another Nor'wester, who ran
the rapids of the river which bears his name and
reached the Pacific in 1806.
What with the rivalries of the Hudson's Bay,
the Nor'westers and the subsequently formed
Pacific Fur Company, to say nothing of tribal
warfare among the Indians, the Coast in the
early nineteenth century became a spectacular
spot. In '58 an additional element of lawless
picturesqueness was stirred in by the advent of
30,000 goldseekers, who rushed north from San
Francisco bound for the rumor-land around the
Fraser and Thompson rivers. Just here the
British Government stepped in and made the
future province into a colony as the one means
of anchoring it to its native mountains.
So far British Columbia had been the land of
the trail-hitter. No man could win through the
terrific defiles of the Rockies or round the gale-
smashed Horn unless he were of the pioneer breed
and carried his life slung along with his rifle.
But when law and order came north of "49" it
was time for respectability and a railroad.
In 1871 the Canadian Pacific was begun; eleven
different surveys across the mounlains were
patiently worked out, only that ten of them might
be ruthlessly cast aside. It was not till November 7, 1885, that the last spike was driven linking
the Pacific Coast of Canada with the Atlantic.
To-day the tourist may join the annual pilgrimage of happy pleasure seekers who visit Banff,
may stand on some conquered peak from which
the endless mountain prospect radiates four
hundred miles to the Pacific, a thousand to the
Arctic, a thousands and more southward.
He may travel to matchless Lake Louise,
where Nature has composed her mountains, her
glaciers, her forests, into a picture as endlessly
[Page Two]
changing in light effect as it is forever fixed and
satisfying in wonder of line and balance of color-
Seated in a comfortable observation chair or
open car, he may glide down the Kicking Horse
Canyon, where, in 1883, Sir Sandford Fleming
recorded that he and his guides and his cayuses
were "from five to eight hundred feet high on a
path of from ten to fifteen inches wide and at
some points almost obliterated, with slopes above
and below us so steep that a stone would roll
into the torrent in the abyss below."
Leaving the Rockies, the tourist may slide
through the Columbia Valley and up into the
mighty Selkirks. He may dip south to the pastoral charms of the enchanting Lake Windermere
district or into the orchards of the Okanagan
country; he may reach Vancouver city and take
passage across the Pacific. Or he may take a
Canadian Pacific steamer up the coast to marvellous Alaska., where volcano and glacier are set
beside each other and the fiord country rivals
Norway, where the salmon cannery beats the
gold mine and the fur seal grows fat and lusty in
the protected Pribilofs.
Finally he may come back again across the
width of a mighty continent by different ways of
equal comfort, without once leaving the lines
of what is the world's greatest highway, the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
CROM the roof garden of the Palliser Hotel
at Calgary, one can see the glistening peaks
of the Canadian Pacific Rockies sixty miles away.
Their call is irresistible—like a magnet they pull
the trains of eager travellers. For 500 miles the
Canadian Pacific Railway follows the wild canyons
that the rivers have dug, brawling, glacier-fed,
about the feet of the giant peaks.
DANFFis the capital of Rocky Mountains Park,
*r which, with Yoho and Glacier parks, contains
some two hundred and twenty miles of carriage
road,  with   radiating   trails   innumerable.    Here '%»*«JWJ f)   PACIFIC    COAST    TOURS     through    the     CANADIAN:   PACIF
the Canadian Pacific Railway has placed the most
beautifully situated and luxuriously comfortable
mountain hotel in the world, overlooking the
junction of the Bow and the Spray rivers. Within
easy reach are gentle climbs and gorgeous panoramas, the picturesque and brilliantly colored
terraces of the Hot Springs; together with stiff
and challenging ascents like that of Mount Edith
for the proved Alpinist, who very often makes
his headquarters with the Alpine Club of Canada,
on the slopes of Sulphur Mountain.
Buffalo, mountain sheep, mountain goat, and other
animals at Banff are a never-failing source of interest.
Lake Minnewanka is the home of huge fighting trout,
a forty-seven pounder being on exhibition at the chalet.
Excellent golf links have been laid out at Banff and
there are beautiful river trips.
There are numerous interesting spots in the vicinity,
all easily accessible by good carriage roads and bridle
paths. A short distance from Banff Springs Hotel are
the Bow Falls, a cataract of wonderful beauty; Tunnel
Mountain, from which a splendid view of the valley is
obtained, and the Cave and Basin, a remarkable formation from which gush natural sulphur springs. Within
a radius of three miles are the Hoodoos, natural concrete
pillars of various shapes and sizes, Cascade Mountain,
Stoney Squaw Mountain, the beautiful Vermilion Lakes,
the animal paddocks and Sun Dance Canyon, a deep and
curious cleft in the mountain. At a distance of nine miles
is Lake Minnewanka, a pretty sheet of water, extremely
deep and walled in by tremendous cliffs. The lake is
sixteen miles long, with a width of from one to two miles.
Two launches make the round trip daily. A wonderful
river trip up the Bow can also be made by electric launch.
An interesting automobile run of about fourteen miles
brings you to Johnston Canyon, where an excellent trail
leads to a great waterfall. The Banff-Windermere road
over the Vermillion Pass has now made accessible the
exquisitely beautiful Marble Canyon. Banff is a particularly good starting point for camping and fishing trips
with outfits, experienced guides and ponies into the surrounding mountains.
T AKE LOUISE bears the liquid music}, the
*-** soft color notes of its name into the realm of
the visible. Behind its turquoise mirror rise the
stark immensities of Mounts Lefroy and Victoria,
the latter "the big snow mountain above the
Lake of Little  Fishes" of  which the wandering
Stonies used to tell. Here, on the margin of this
most perfect lake, the Canadian Pacific has placed
its Chateau in one of those wonderful Alpine
flower gardens in which the Rockies abound.
Yellow violets and columbines, white anemones
and green orchids, make merry with the red-
flowered sheep laurel and the white-tufted Labrador tea. Be he never so lazy, the tourist has
something to reward him in this gay garden
backed with the rich-toned lake and the milky
green of the glacier.
Lake Agnes, "the Goats' Looking Glass," as the Indians
used to call it, is a wild tarn shut in by sombre cliffs, a
thousand feet above Lake Louise. Here the great white
anemone blooms by the late snowdrift and there is the
silence of eternity among the high hills. It is reached
from the hotel by an easy trail which also takes in the
lovely Mirror Lake. The trail continues to the Big
Beehive, or to the lookout on the Little Beehive, commanding a magnificent panorama of lake, glacier and
It is a three-mile trip to Saddleback Mountain, which
affords an admirable view of the lovely Paradise Valley.
At a distance of about ten miles is Moraine Lake, situated at the head of the valley of the Ten Peaks and
reached over a good carriage road recently constructed.
Good camping facilities are afforded on the shore of the
lake in the midst of scenes of surpassing beauty. Consolation Lake, about three miles further by trail, provides
good trout fishing. The Victoria Glacier, a great palisade of hanging snow, Abbot Pass, a deep canyon between
Mounts Victoria and Lefroy, O'Hara Lake, set amid
scenes of wild Alpine grandeur, and where the Alpine Club
of Canada will hold its annual Camp in 1921, Cataract
Creek, Paradise Valley and the Ptarmigan Lakes are
among the notable spots well worthy of a visit. The
new Upper Glacier Trail to Victoria Glacier is of exceptional interest and  beauty.
"MEAR Hector is the Great Divide. There are
two streams here issuing together and setting
out, the one east, the other west, on their long
journeys to two oceans. Between Hector and
Field the Canadian Pacific has driven through
the solid rock, two ingenious spiral tunnels, which
reduce the old 4.5 grade to 2.2.
A^ bungalow camp has been planned on a picturesque site near Field for the convenience of
those desiring to visit the Yoho Valley with its
[Page Six]
great glaciers.     It is anticipated that this camp
will be ready for the summer season of 1921.
T7MERALD LAKE, green as its name, is a
seven-mile carriage drive from Field, at the
end of which tea may be had in the cosy little
chalet. Takakkaw means "It is wonderful!"
And even the stoical Indian had to admit that the falls
in the Yoho Valley that now bear this curious name
deserved the exclamation. Sir James Outram says," The
torrent, issuing from an icy cavern, rushes tempestuously
down a deep winding chasm till it gains the verge of the
unbroken cliffs, leaps forth in sudden wildness for 150
feet, and then in a stupendous column of pure white
sparkling water, broken by giant jets descending rocketlike and wreathed in volumed spray, dashes upon the
rocks almost a thousand feet below, and breaking into a
milky series of cascading rushes for five hundred feet
more, swirls into the swift current of the Yoho River."
The drive to Takakkaw Falls is exceptionally beautiful.
A trail continues up the Yoho Valley, past Laughing
Falls and the great Wapta Glacier, to the curious Twin
Falls, whose divided waters unite in one stream before
reaching the depths below. Other pleasant excursions
may be made to points of interest within a short distance
of Field—such as the Fossil Beds, Aerial Silver Mines,
Natural Bridge, Monarch Mine Cabins and the Grade
Reduction Loops.
At Golden one reaches the Columbia River, which
here flows north until it turns at the Big Bend for its
southward flow to the Pacific Ocean. Golden is the
junction for a new branch line of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, which runs between the Rockies and the Selkirk
Mountains and passes through highly picturesque scenery
past Lake Windermere to the Crowsnest line of the
Canadian Pacific Railway. The creeks which open up
the great Selkirk Range to the south of this valley provide access to some of the most spectacular Alpine scenery
in North America, while the hunting and fishing in season
are also good.
At Lake Windermere, south of Golden, a bungalow camp was
opened last summer on the shores of one of the loveliest warm winter
lakes in British Columbia, with every facility for bathing, boating,
riding and motoring in a country of exceptional beauty. It proved
very popular, and attracted many visitors to this district.
T JNTIL the end of the year 1916 the railway
^ climbed over the top of Rogers Pass through
a gorge, subject in winter to heavy snowslides
against which the track was protected by four
miles of snowsheds. These are now evaded by
the double-track Connaught Tunnel, the longest
tunnel in North America, which pierces its way
I   ■
FIC     COAST    TOURS     through     the     CANADIAN    PACIFIC    ROCKIES
through Mount Macdonald and reappears in the
Illecillewaet Valley below Mount Sir Donald and
the Illecillewaet and Asulkan Glaciers. From portal to
portal this tunnel measures five miles, but so straight is
the line that the exits are never out of sight.
About a mile from the western exit is Glacier Hotel,
built by the Canadian Pacific Railway for the convenience of Alpine climbers and others who wish to explore
the trails and visit the lakes, glaciers and caves of this
wonderful Alpine region. Almost at the back dojor of
the hotel is the great Illecillewaet Ice River. A comfortable carriage road leads to within a mile of the Nakimu
Caves, which are said to be larger than the Mammoth
Caves of Kentucky, although only part have hitherto been
made accessible to the public. Swiss guides and surefooted
ponies are located at the hotel for the benefit of those
who wish to climb the glaciers and mountains or ride the
trails to heights commanding magnificent panoramas.
Leading from the hotel a good trail follows the turbulent course of the Illecillewaet River to the Great
Illecillewaet Glacier and Valley; other trails branch off in
all directions, inviting and leading the mountain climber,
explorer and lover of Nature to scenes of marvellous
grandeur and enchanting beauty. Glacier Crest, Lake
Marion and Observation Point are among the shorter
and easier ascents. Mount Abbott is a day's climb, but
not a difficult one. From its summit an exceptionally
fine view is obtained of the Asulkan Valley. Easy trails
also lead up to the summits of Eagle Peak and Mount
Avalanche. The ascent of Mount Sir Donald is more
difficult, but with the assistance of experienced guides
may readily be accomplished.
An excellent trail leads to the Asulkan Glacier, through
scenes of Alpine splendour, and the recently discovered
Caves of Nakimu are only distant about seven miles
from Glacier House by a carriage road and bridle path.
These wonderful caverns have been formed by the action
of water for ages upon the solid rocks, and from a series of
chambers with large entrances, polished-rock ceilings and
walls which sparkle with quartz crystals and reflect
myriads of miniature lights from the darkness. A trail
leads over Baloo Pass to Rogers' Pass, by which return
can be made to the hotel.
T^HE Company's own Swiss guides are stationed
*    at   Lake   Louise   and   Glacier, and   may  be
engaged through the managers of the Canadian
Pacific Railway hotels.
From Glacier, the route descending the western slope
of the Selkirks follows the valley of the Illecillewaet
through Albert Canyon, a marvellous gorge of great
depth and startling fascination.
Revelstoke is an important centre, from which there
is water communication with the rich Kootenay and
Boundary districts. A motor road is under construction
to the top of Mount Revelstoke, which has been converted into a National Park and is attracting increasing
numbers of summer visitors. At Sicamous an excellent
hotel is operated by the Canadian Pacific Railway, and
especially convenient either for those who wish to stop off
somewhere and make the all-daylight trip through the
Canadian Pacific Rockies, or for those who are visiting
the fertile fruit-growing Okanagan Valley for which this
is the junction.
The Canyon of the Thompson is entered beyond
Ashcroft. Its angry waters rush along in a perfect maelstrom, and after the junction with the Fraser at Lytton
the scenery assumes an even wilder aspect. North Bend
is situated in the heart of the Fraser Canyon, amid awe-
inspiring surroundings. At Hope, junction is made with
the new line of the Kettle Valley Railway, providing
rapid and picturesque connection with the orchard and
mining districts of Southern British Columbia.
Forty-two miles beyond Mission is Vancouver.
THHE short but interesting trip on Puget Sound
A should not be omitted from the itinerary. If
requested when purchasing, it will be included
in through tickets without additional charge. (See route
No. 1, on map.)
The Company's Princess steamers, operating on this
route, are the fastest and best equipped in the Pacific
coastwise trade.
AT Vancouver, B. C, the Canadian Pacific
*"* Ry. connects with the Great Northern Ry.
for Bellingham, Burlington, Everett and Seattle.
This is an alternative route to Seattle and points south,
but tickets reading by rail will not be good via steamship,
or vice versa, between Vancouver and Seattle. (Route
No. 2, all rail.)
F\ I VERGING from the main line of the Cana-
dian Pacific at Medicine Hat, an attractive
alternative route, between Medicine Hat and
Revelstoke, is offered via the Crowsnest Pass Route,
affording a most delightful steamer trip on the Kootenay
River from Kootenay Landing to Nelson,  continuing by
[Page Ten]
rail to West Robson, from which point another steamer
trip may be enjoyed through the beautiful Arrow Lakes
to Arrowhead, joining the main line at Revelstoke for
continuance of trip to Vancouver.
A new route passing through scenery of exceptional
beauty takes the traveller from Nelson, via Grand Forks
and Penticton and the orchard districts of the Okanagan
Valley, over the Kettle Valley Railway, rejoining the
main line at Hope. Grand Forks is the location of the
largest copper smelter in the British Empire, is the gateway to the Boundary mining district, and is the centre
of a fertile apple country. The Coquihalla Valley from
Summit to Hope provides great fishing.
DASSENGERS en route to California have
the choice of either an overland trip or a sea
voyage (at slight additional cost) from North
Pacific Coast points. From Portland to San
Francisco the picturesque Shasta Route of the Southern
Pacific, or the San Francisco & Portland Steamship Company may be used; from Victoria or Seattle steamers of
the Pacific Steamship Company maintain a regular service
to San Francisco and Wilmington (port for Los Angeles).
t^ROM Vancouver, B. C, to Skagway, Alaska,
is a thousand miles through the entrancing
Inland Channel, winding between islands and the
mainland as through a fairyland. The journey
is made in the palatial, yacht-like "Princess"
steamers of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Ten days is required for the double journey to and
from this land of romance. The tree-clad passage of
Seymour's Narrows, Alert Bay, with its avenue of Totem
Poles, and the picturesque Indian cedar lodges, the Indian
basket weavers of Ketchikan, the salmon fishing fleets
and canneries, are but a few of the scenes that enchant
the traveller.
From Ketchikan the way leads on through the Wran-
gel Narrows, mile after mile of a winding way through
Beyond the Narrows lies Juneau, the capital of Alaska,
on Gastineau Channel. Here are first-class hotels and
restaurants. One can go by automobile right to the face
of a glacier, the return trip taking about three and one-
half hours. On Gastineau Channel, close to Juneau, are
situated three of the largest gold quartz mining plants in
the world.
And, then, eight hours north, a wide bay leads on to
the last passage through the mountains, which grow ever
1    PACIFIC    COAST    TOURS    through    the     CANADIAN    PACIFIC    ROCKIES
steeper and more narrowing till the sands of Skagway
are reached beneath a sheer precipice.
Skagway, once the wildest, wickedest town in the
world, is now a model of propriety. Beyond still lies
much of romance, reached over the romantic rails of the
White Pass & Yukon Route. A short climb up the
steep hill of the Pass, and the train has reached the summit, and indeed one seems to be at the very roof of the
TTHE terminal of the Canadian Pacific's trans-
A continental rail lines and its trans-Pacific
steamship routes, is the largest commercial
centre in British Columbia, and has an excellent harbour
nearly landlocked and fully sheltered. It faces a beautiful range of mountains that are tipped with snow the
year round. Two peaks, silhouetted against the sky,
remarkably resembling two couchant lions, are visible
from almost any point in the city or on the harbour,which
has appropriately been termed "The Lions' Gate."
In and around Vancouver are immense lumber and
shingle mills. Mining, lumbering, farming and shipping
form the bulwark of the city's phenomenal growth and
All kinds of water sports are possible at Vancouver,
and are encouraged through a mild climate and extensive
bodies of water. There are many bathing beaches, parks,
boulevards, automobile roads and paved streets. Stanley
Park, one of the largest natural parks in the world, is
excellently maintained by the city.
Hotel Vancouver, of the Canadian Pacific Hotel System,
is second to none on the Pacific Coast, is conveniently
located and has a high reputation for the excellency of its
service. Wonderful views can be had from the roof of
this great hotel. Vancouver has an admirable golf course
at Shaughnessy Heights.
It is only a short run by Canadian Pacific Railway
steamer to Nanaimo, where the Esquimalt & Nanaimo
Railway connects with the beauty spots of Vancouver
From Vancouver, the Company's famous Princess
steamers offer splendid service to Victoria, Seattle,
Northern British Columbia and Alaska; the "White
Empresses" cross the Pacific to Japan and China. The
Canadian Australasian line runs regularly from Vancouver
to Honolulu, Suva (Fiji), New Zealand and Australia.
/^HARMINGLY situated on Vancouver Island,
^ overlooking the straits of Juan de Fuca,
Victoria drinks in the sunshine and smiles at the
traveller. 11 is distinctly a home city, with fine roads and
beautiful gardens, although its enterprising business district, composed of imposing stores and tall office buildings, speaks of a rich commerce drawn from a territory
full of mineral and agricultural resources. Victoria's
beauty lies in her residential districts, her boulevards,
her parks and her public buildings. The Parliament
buildings of British Columbia rank among the handsomest in America.
The Empress Hotel, another of the chain of Canadian
Pacific institutions, gives the guest attention and service
equalled only by the best in the land. It overlooks the
inner harbour and is within a stone's throw of the Parliament buildings. Golf facilities can be arranged for
visitors to the hotel.
From Victoria delightful excursions may be made into
the interior of Vanvouver Island, either by automobile
or by the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway. The Malahat
Drive is a luxuriously smooth and picturesque motor road.
Excellent hotels are to be found at Shawnigan Lake
and Qualicum Beach and a delightful little chalet inn at
Cameron Lake. Mount Arrowsmith proves one of the
best climbs and Qualicum Beach has a good, sporting
golf course. There is no better fishing on the Pacific
Coast than that which one finds on the Campbell River,
reached by motor from Courtenay, the northern terminus
of the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway. The immense
Douglas fir forests on this beautiful island and the balmy
climate make it wonderfully attractive to the tourist.
CPLENDIDLY located on Puget Sound, moun-
^ tain-girt and fringed with lakes, Seattle is
the metropolis of the district she dominates. Situated on
seven hills, many of which have been greatly altered by
means of the steam shovel and the hydraulic plant to
make highways for traffic, Seattle overlooks a beautiful
The gold fields of Alaska filter their treasure through
her industries and her stores. The lumber camps and the
farms of Washington add to her prosperity. The tallest
of her buildings is forty-two stories, exceeded only by
those of New York City.
HTACOMA, the southernmost of the quartette of
North Pacific cities that cluster along the Gulf
of Georgia and Puget Sound, stands on a bluff at the head
of deep water navigation on the Sound, and is connected
with Seattle by excellent motor roads as well as by train.
From it is a comparatively short journey to Mount Rainier
and the Rainier National Park.
CPOKANE, capital of "the Inland Empire,"
is an important financial and commercial
city, with huge smelters, mines, water falls, power plants,
and an exceeding prosperous agricultural territory within
its sphere. From it also can be easily reached some very
delightful scenery.
DORTLAND, Oregon, famous for its roses, is
1 so located as to permit trips of widely diverse
nature. The steamer trip up the Columbia River into the
Cascade Mountains is one of the most interesting. The
Columbia Highway is a motor road leading along the
bluffs overlooking the Columbia.
The ascent of Mount Hood requires only three or four
days from Portland for the entire trip.
CAN FRANCISCO is the nucleus of a metro-
^ politan district composed of a cluster of cities
on the Bay. She possesses over 800 miles of streets and
300 miles of street railway.
She revels in aquatic sports of all kinds, which are
made possible at all times of the year because of an
equable climate. History, too, has been kind to this city,
leaving relics of early Spanish settlements which will ever
be sights of interest.
Parks, elaborate and well designed, are thronged with
people. The largest, Golden Gate Park, containing 1,013
acres, is a veritable fairyland of loveliness. The cafes, of
which there are hundreds, are famed for their Bohemian
life and their good cooking.
r OS ANGELES gladdens the eye with its
^ twenty-three public parks, containing 3,897
acres of lawns, flowers, hills, trees and lakes. The architecture is varied and suggests the different parts of the
world from which its residents have come. Famous for
its beautiful homes, lovely gardens and fine hotels, Los
Angeles is one of the most attractive cities in the United

The Canadian Pacific Rockies comprise some of Nature's
most gigantic works. In many mountainous regions the
chief peaks spring from such high plateaus that, although
they are actually a very considerable height above sea
level, their height is not very impressive to the traveller*
That this is not so in the Canadian Pacific Rockies is
evident from the following tables, which show the altitudes of the principal mountains seen by the traveller
from the train or at the most popular mountain resorts—
altitudes not only in relation to sea level, but also to the
valleys at their base.
