Western Canada & Alaska

Western Canada and Alaska offer a vast kaleidoscope of natural wonders spliced with cultures that are as inviting as they are intriguing. It’s a region that brings out the adventurer in all of us. From the great Rocky Mountains to glacial lakes that shimmer in magical shades of blue, from picture-perfect alpine resorts to charming harbour cities, this corner of Canada is an expansive wonderland that’s as varied as it is magnificent. 

Western Canada is a land of uncommon beauty, made up of four unique but equally breathtaking provinces – Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchenwan – each ripe with complex history and cultures. 

The mountains, Arctic Circle, timeless frontier towns and rich Inuit culture of Alaska will weave their magic and enrich your soul. Add cosmopolitan culture and unique history and you have the perfect recipe for an unforgettable adventure, at any time of the year. 

Indeed, winter must be among the most wondrous times to visit the winter wonderland and indulge your childhood fantasies of a white Christmas. 

Rocky Mountains

Towering over North America and Canada like a benevolent fortress of rock and ice, the Rocky Mountains are as immense in breathtaking beauty as they are in scale. The epic beauty of this region is distinct as you weave through from Vancouver and Victoria to Whistler, Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper. 

Ever-changing with the light, the magnificent Rocky Mountains, affectionately known as the ‘Rockies’ stretch for an expansive 4,800 kilometres from the northernmost part of British Columbia in Western Canada to New Mexico in the southwestern United States. 

Witness the exquisite alpine lakes punctuated with looming glaciers, verdant forests, stunning coastlines and frequent glimpses of its unique wildlife in its wake. Our Canadian Rockies tours will take you through the mountains on the iconic Rocky Mountaineer train where you’ll be treated to award-winning GoldLeaf comfort while you marvel at the unravelling beauty through the glass-domed carriage. 

The vastness of the sights – the looming glaciers, the magnificent mountainscapes, big skies and endless forested wilderness will literally take your breath away. Spot native wildlife in their natural habitat previously only glimpsed in captivity or on the pages of a book.

Alaska

The Alaskan wilderness still boasts locations untouched by man. In travelling to this final wild frontier, you’ll be among the privileged few. The word ‘epic’ barely does Alaska justice. You will be treated to places of pristine beauty, from Denali National Park, with its snowy mountains and sweeping vistas, to the majestic College Fjord in Prince William Sound. You may even have the chance to cross the Arctic Circle. 

Like Africa, Alaska is a land for wildlife purists who love to observe fauna in its natural habitat. Brown bears, black bears, musk oxen, wolves, caribou and other creatures great and small quietly wander this region. And in the water while cruising the Inside Passage, the fjords and full of bald eagles, sea lions, porpoises and whales. 

Formed by the power of ancient glaciers, the Inside Passage is a series of deep fjords and a 7 night cruise through this area is filled with magnificent moments of wonder.
