Itinerary

Depart UK to Calgary, Alberta.  On arrival find your transfer to Banff and overnight.

Time to Explore Banff.  If you’re looking for the best view, then the Banff Gondola is a must.  Head off with your camera to see one of the most famous Canadian sites – Lake Louise.  Cap off your evening by dining out in downtown Banff.

Transfer to Jasper where you will overnight.  This would be a great afternoon to take a helicopter tour of the area.  You’ll get a new perspective on how magnificent the area really is.

A full day in Jasper to experience what this magnificent area has to offer. We suggest the Columbia ice field.  This is the largest body of ice in Canada and feeds 3 of the globe’s oceans – the Pacific, the North Atlantic and the Arctic.  A must to check out first hand.

Today you will board the award-winning Rocky Mountaineer and begin your journey to Vancouver.  Cameras are a must today as you make your way through the rugged alpine terrain to Kamloops where you will overnight.

Last day on the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer.  Today you will meander your way along by dramatic canyons to the lush coastal mountains into Vancouver.  Check one item off the ‘bucket list’.

Upon arrival in Vancouver make your way independently to your hotel.  Spend the afternoon and evening walking around the neighbourhood and finding a great spot for dinner.

Make your way to the Vancouver port to embark on the Celebrity Eclipse.

Spend the day sailing the Inside Passage, a region of pristine water, snow-capped mountains, deep fjords and forested islands.

Dock in the afternoon at Icy Straight Point.  Here you will find more brown bears than humans!  Enjoy the Hoonah, Alaska’s largest Native Tlingit Village and check out the world’s largest Ziprider.

The glacier routinely calves off icebergs the size of ten-storey buildings.  Learn that and more as you spend part of your day in Disenchantment Bay in front of the Hubbard Glacier.

Arrive early in the morning at Alaska’s capital, Juneau.  Spend the day out and about. Tour the Mendenhall Glacier and go whale watching and wildlife viewing.  Try the Alaskan seafood trifecta: salmon, halibut and crab.

Dock after lunch in Ketchikan.   Tour the area by foot, kayak, bike or try the zipline.  Seeing the sights is easy in Ketchikan. Even if you just stand in the middle of town and look out over the waterfront, you've already taken in more natural beauty than most people do in a month

Another day cruising the Inside Passage – get your camera out, you have a second chance to catch what you missed the first time.

Disembark and make your way to your downtown Vancouver hotel.  Would be a great time to use your Hop on Hop off pass to you can decide what you want to go back and see later.

We recommend Granville Island, Stanley Park and Chinatown.  Continue your west coast seafood extravaganza by trying out a couple of new restaurants.

Time to say goodbye to Canada and Alaska and head back home with a camera full of photos, some incredible experiences and many, many wonderful memories.
