Magnificent Alaska and Canadian Rockies

Posted June 15th, 2017

Covering both land and sea, the Magnificent Alaska and Canadian Rockies 21-night journey offers passengers a unique travel experience. It includes a five day coach tour, seven nights on board the luxury Coral Princess cruise-liner, city sightseeing before finishing with a seven night rail journey with the iconic Rocky Mountaineer. Below, we look into some of the highlights of  this special tour. 

Jasper National Park

Canada’s largest national park, Jasper combines pristine scenery with a host of outdoor activities. It is home to the Maligne Lake where you can hike, kayak, fish, ride bikes, all while keeping your eyes peeled for local wildlife. They also offer helicopter tours over Jasper National Park and white-water rafting adventures. Whether exploring solo, with friends or as part of a guided tour, Jasper National Park is truly memorable to all who visit.

Juneau

There aren’t many places in the world where you can spot a brown bear one day, a whale the next, but a visit to this Alaskan capital offers this opportunity among countless others.  Full of  possibilities for intrepid travellers, you can fill your days canoeing, dog sledding, glacier flight seeing or taking an icefield walks. Whichever you choose, you'll be set for a magical experience.

Vancouver

Located on Canada’s west coast, this thriving metropolis has something to offer travellers of all ages. Trek to the top of the Vancouver Lookout for superb 360-degree views of the city, or if it's views of Canada's stunning nature you're after, head to Grouse Mountain.  It is only 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver, where visitors are whisked to the top of the mountain via Skyride, North America’s largest aerial tram system. If you prefer a slower pace, take your time wondering around  downtown Vancouver - Science World and the Vancouver Art Gallery are well worth a visit.

Denali National Park

While it might boast North America’s tallest peak, there is far more to Denali National Park than initially meets the eye.  Spread over six million acres, the area is pure Alaskan beauty. From casual hikers and nature lovers to mountaineers and extreme adventurers, Denali attracts all types of visitors. If you’re looking for a fun challenge, why not aim for the ‘Denali Slam’? Spot a moose, caribou, wolf, Dall sheep and grizzly bear, and this distinct honour will be yours.

Hubbard Glacier

The largest tidewater glacier in North America, Hubbard Glacier is mind-blowing in terms of both size and sheer beauty. Cruising it's surrounding waterways which are home to seals and local birdlife will put you at the forefront of nature. Enjoy the remarkable contrast in hues between the water, ice, and sky above.

From the picturesque Denali National Park to the stunning Hubbard Glacier, this trip showcases some of North America’s most beautiful scenery and landmarks.
