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. Enjoy a relaxed tour of the Maritimes' picture-postcard provinces, explore the inherent European influences and take in some of Canada's most beautiful scenery. From coastal cliffs, lush highlands and forested valleys to quaint fishing towns and the world's highest tides. Stops in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Island are a must to see the most of what eastern Canada has to offer.
Some of North America's most spectacular scenery combines with an incredible train journey on the Rocky Mountaineer and a luxury cruise to the world's last great wilderness, Alaska. 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.
For a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience, look no further than a transatlantic crossing from Southampton on the Queen Mary 2. After 7 days of enjoying all of the amazing experiences on-board, arrive in New York City for some sight-seeing before travelling to Niagara Falls and Toronto. There are so many options to discover the best of Canada. What will you choose?
