Explore the thrilling beauty of Canada’s national parks and glorious drives on this Canadian Rockies tour that stays overnight in Banff National Park, Jasper National Park, Sun Peaks, Kelowna, Whistler, Vancouver and Victoria. And then explore the incredible landscapes, calving icebergs and wildlife of Alaska on a seven-night cruise.

Recharge yourself in Banff and Jasper national parks, where mountains, valleys, forests, rivers and wild meadows are home to bears, eagles, elk and wolves. You’ll also spend time in Glacier national park, with its dramatic mountains, waterfalls and glaciers; and Yoho, home to sheer rock walls and soaring peaks.

Enjoy a winery tour in the resort town of Kelowna on Lake Okanagan, surrounded by pretty orchards and vineyards. Get stunning views of Mount Robson – the Canadian Rockies’ highest mountain at 12,972 feet – and rest for the night in the mountain town of Sun Peaks. You’ll also stay overnight in Whistler, home to the 2010 Winter Olympics.

A highlight of your tour is a visit to prehistoric Columbia Icefield, the largest sheet of ice in the Canadian Rockies. Here, you’ll jump aboard the Ice Explorer coach, which travels on ice 1,200 feet thick. And on the Pacific Coast, you’ll sail across the Strait of Georgia to vibrant Victoria to enjoy a two-night stay with guided sightseeing, a visit to the famous Butchart Gardens and plenty of free time to discover some of Victoria’s most popular attractions.

If you’ve always wanted to experience the beauty and wildlife of Canada and Alaska, this Canadian Rockies tour with an Alaska cruise is made for you.

Whole tour was very rushed with the guide showing her...

Mr John Major

Whole tour was very rushed with the guide showing her inexperience. When you only have 45 minutes at a top sight to take photographs, take in the ambience, go to the bathroom, get coffee and food it is not enough, especially when there are 43 on the coach. This is what happened at Lake Louise which was supposed to be a highlight of the tour. One example of how rushed we were . We got to most hotels around 4 pm when 6pm would have been ok

Great itinerary, excellent tour guide and driver in Canada, first...
