About the tour
Soak up the magnificent views that scenic Canada and stunning Alaska have to offer. With a journey on the world-famous Rocky Mountaineer, and a 7-night cruise through Alaska's sparkling waters, we take in the very best of these two destinations.
Our holiday begins with a flight from London to Calgary, where on arrival we are met by a coach for our transfer to Banff, a scenic town set in Canada's oldest National Park. On arrival, you are free to settle in and unwind as you wish.
Day 2 begins with an excursion into the Canadian Rockies. Perhaps ride the Banff Gondola (payable locally) to the summit of Sulphur Mountain, for bird'seye views. Each four-person gondola sails above the tree-tops, showcasing stunning panoramas of Banff National Park and its six surrounding mountain ranges, as you glide to the peak. Here, you have free time to soak up the atmosphere and collect snapshots for your holiday album, perhaps venturing to the rooftop observatory for a truly uninterrupted outlook across the landscape, from a breathtaking elevation of 7,486 feet. After descending, our next stop is crystal-clear Lake Louise, one of the most photographed and iconic sights in Canada. This region is famous for its picture-perfect vistas, from snow-covered mountain peaks to the aquamarine waters of this idyllic lake. Later, we continue to Emerald Lake, the largest of Yoho National Park's lakes, known for its vivid colours.
