TOUR GUIDE AS YOU DRIVE THE CANADIAN ROCKIES

If you like driving yourself when you go sightseeing, GyPSy Guide™ tour apps allow you to enjoy a guided tour experience while remaining totally independent. By driving yourself, you'll be able to get from place to place faster, see more things and not be tied to anyone else's schedule.

DON'T MISS OUT ON THE BEST SIGHTS AND STORIES

The tour apps use your device’s location abilities to play the commentary AUTOMATICALLY. All you have to do is drive, listen and decide which places you want to stop at. Our tour guides have created insightful and entertaining tours of the Rockies. We’ll recommend the best places to see and some great locations that most visitors don't get to see.

PLAYS AUTOMATICALLY

GyPSy Guide knows where you are and which direction you are heading, and plays commentary automatically about the things you are seeing, plus stories and tips and advice.

EXPLORE LIKE A LOCAL

It’s just like having a local friend to show you around. And that friend just happens to be a professional tour guide.

GREAT VALUE

The same information you would get on a bus tour or from a guide book, for just a fraction of the price. And you control the itinerary and schedule.

WORKS OFFLINE

No data, cellular or even wireless network connection needed while touring. Download over Wi-Fi before you tour. Anyone can use them with no need for roaming data – even visiting from another country.

DRIVING TOUR ROUTE

The tour includes the most popular sightseeing stops and many more:

1) Athabasca Falls
2) Sunwapta Falls
3) Stutfield Glacier
4) Columbia Icefields and Ice Explorer
5) Peyto Lake
6) Bow Lake and Crowfoot Glacier

This tour starts at the Highway 1 exit onto 93N (Icefields Parkway) outside of Lake Louise. Join 93N from Jasper by driving south from the town. Its is popular to do this tour as a day trip by driving from Banff or Lake Louise to the Columbia Icefields Centre and back.

CANADIAN ROCKIES APP BUNDLE

This tour is a part of a set of tour apps by GyPSy Guide to explore the Canadian Rockies National Parks. Other tours in the series include:

* Banff Townsite Tour
* Banff Lake Louise Yolo
* Jasper National Park
* And Calgary to Banff (Free)

NOTES

Download the app on Wi-Fi from your network at home or use any free Wi-Fi network. Because the app is filled with audio commentary and maps, its larger than "normal" apps. Many phone/data networks may block the download because of size - so its important to download over a Wi-Fi network.

++ Continued use of GPS running in the background increases battery usage - we strongly recommend taking a cigarette style (DC outlet) car charger. This is much better than simply plugging into the USB port in a vehicle.

** iPad users - please note that WiFi-only iPads will not activate the commentary automatically. Any iPhone or network-capable iPad (WiFi + Cellular - whether you have a network connection or not) will work just fine.
