Grand Western Canada Vacation with Alaska Cruise
On this Canadian Rockies tour—with an Alaska cruise—enjoy time in many of Canada’s most scenic areas as you travel through some of its national parks and mountain towns. Spend time in beautiful Banff National Park, Jasper National Park, Whistler, Sun Peaks, Victoria, Vancouver, and British Columbia’s wine country. Ferry through the Gulf Islands between Vancouver and Victoria. Take an Ice Explorer ride on the 1,200-foot-thick Columbia Icefield, and marvel at the stunning scenery, including alpine meadows, waterfalls, and massive glaciers. Admire the beauty of Lake Louise, with green-blue waters forming a perfect mirror reflection of Mount Victoria. Travel to Maligne Lake, the largest glacially formed lake and one of the most picturesque spots in the Canadian Rockies, for a cruise to Spirit Island. Witness panoramic views of Banff from the Banff gondola, and in British Columbia, enjoy a visit to spectacular Shannon Falls, the third highest falls in the province. More breathtaking scenery also awaits you on your 7-night Alaska cruise. Visit the towns of Juneau, Skagway, and Ketchikan. Cruise through Tracy Arm, with one of Alaska’s most dramatic glacier settings; the gorgeous Inside Passage, with its whales, soaring eagles, and more; and Glacier Bay National Park, where you’ll witness the huge slabs of ice break off and “calve” into the sea. On this tour, Globus has also arranged some special experiences for you. On Victoria, visit world-famous Butchart Gardens, with 55 acres of impressive floral displays, followed by a special dinner in the original Butchart family residence. In British Columbia’s wine region, Globus has included a tour and dinner at a winery producing some of British Columbia’s best wines. This is just a sampling of the highlights offered on this Canadian Rockies tour. Enjoy the tranquil beauty and fun experiences on this marvelous vacation.
