For a contrast of cosmopolitan cities, beautiful scenery and wildlife, Canada and Alaska have so much on offer. Explore the old town’s and new cities of Canada, delve deeper into the heart of the rugged national parks or sail up the coast of Alaska to witness the breath-taking views and vast landscapes.
Canada It’s not just the major cities that draw visitors to Canada each year, it’s coastlines are just as much of a highlight. With diverse culture and an abundance of sights, Canada is a must visit destination. One of the most popular excursions to experience is a trip to visit the mind-blowing Niagara Falls, if you’re lucky enough to have a full day here why not visit some of the lesser known spots such as the giant boulders of Peggy’s Cove and Montgomery Falls. There are a number of traditional fishing villages in the region, so be sure to sample some freshly caught seafood. Take a trip to the West coast of Canada and visit wonderful Vancouver. This city has something for everyone, whether you enjoy the hustle and bustle or prefer to ferry over to Vancouver Island for a more laid back stay. From here you can also visit Canada’s vast national parks of Lake Louise, Jasper and Banff. Of course, the best way to see these beautiful destinations is from the comfort of your seat on the world famous Rocky Mountaineer train, the most luxurious way to travel.
Alaska A trip to Alaska is truly one of a kind, the chance to discover scenery and wildlife like no other, all from the comfort of a cruise ship. Journey through the inside passage to experience the awe-inspiring glaciers as you sail by. The first port of call is Juneau, famous for whale watching, just the start of the wildlife on offer. Venture out on to the Mendenhall Glacier and if you’re lucky you may spot a brown bear catching Salmon from the streams below. Next stop is Skagway, famous for having been a gateway for the Klondike Gold rush, this port has kept its traditions and is still packed with trading posts, saloons and restaurants selling local freshly plucked fish. Don’t miss a ride on one of the old-fashioned trains that were used to carry the gold into the Yukon region, pass through the cascading waterfalls and beautiful mountainside scenery on your way. Last stop is Ketchikan, known for its rich Indian Heritage and culture, be sure to visit the Saxman Native village to explore the timeless culture or visit the Misty Fjord national monument to see 1000 foot waterfalls in all their glory. Alaska is truly a one of a kind destination that will leave you feeling enriched and with so many unforgettable memories to take home with you.
