With ten provinces, 31,700 large lakes, the world’s second largest land area at 3.85 million square miles and its longest coastline at 125,570 miles, the scale of Canada is truly epic. Its landscapes are equally vast and diverse, ranging from coniferous snow forests, ice, tundra and glaciers to flat, fertile prairies. So what a wonderful experience your tour of Canada will be, as you travel in style and comfort through some of the most spectacular and dramatic landscapes on earth.
The gently rolling prairies of Alberta give way to the iconic snow-capped peaks of the Rockies. Azure blue mountain lakes sit alongside the massive Columbia Icefield. An area of 200 square miles receiving 23 feet of snowfall per year and feeding seven major glaciers, it’s yours to explore on a giant “Snocoach”- a real highlight of your Canada tour. A longer and even more spectacular ride on the Rocky Mountaineer will take you along the wide Bow River Valley, across Kicking Horse Pass, through the legendary Spiral Tunnels, alongside the mighty Fraser River, past the Jaws of Death Gorge and Hell's Gate Canyon, and right into Vancouver where you can relax in one of the world’s most naturally beautiful cities.
But there’s still more to come – because you can extend your tour to Canada with a further unforgettable eight day “Inside Passage” Alaska cruise. You’ll be surrounded by wild, tranquil, unspoilt nature at every glorious, icy turn – as you watch out for humpback whales, black bears, moose and wolves. There are plenty of opportunities too for on and offshore excursions – from helicopter flights and husky-sledding to kayaking, fly fishing, Alaska salmon baking and even sea plane trips into Misty Fjords or the remote Tongass National Forest. You’ll return from your Canada tour with life-changing memories that will stay with you forever.
