Experience the natural beauty of Canada & Alaska
on 13 Sep 2018
A land of sheer natural beauty, Canada and Alaska is about as pristine and picturesque as it gets. Mighty mountain peaks, crystal clear waters, untouched forests and an abundance of wildlife adorn this stunning and immense region. It is here you will discover nature at its finest.
Despite being the second largest country on the planet in terms of land size, only around 10% of Canada is inhabited. This leaves huge expanses of the environment completely untouched. Canada is more than just scenery however, with unique and energetic cities.
America’s state of Alaska does everything in epic proportions. With glaciers bigger than some US states and national parks larger than whole nations, wilderness is Alaska’s best attraction. Mount McKinley is North America’s highest peak at 6,168-metres high and the dominant feature of the Alaskan Mountain Ranges. Visible from hundreds of miles away, one of the highlights of this majestic mountain is its many changing faces depending on the time of day and shifting seasons.
Victoria is Canada’s most English city and boasts historic buildings, fascinating museums, colourful gardens and a scenic harbor. A highlight for many visiting Victoria is the magnificent Butchart Gardens. Internationally renowned, the gardens feature exquisite floral displays that are vastly different, yet still enjoyable, from season to season. Other activities available from Victoria include sightseeing flights, whale watching and salmon fishing.
The Rockies stretch along almost 5,000 kilometres from western Canada all the way down to New Mexico. An almighty piece of nature to behold, the Canadian stretch of the Rockies has some of the most beautiful and scenic landscapes in the world. Picture clear blue skies with golden sun-rays beaming down on snow-capped mountain peaks, lakes with clear turquoise waters and endless rows of lush, green pine forests. At the turn of the season, the Rockies are just as beautiful, transforming into a winter wonderland - the pine trees exuding a snow-dusted charm. The splendour doesn’t end at sundown with the fabled Northern Lights often making an impressive appearance.
The town of Banff is primarily a resort town that manages to retain its rural authenticity and offers a range of options to fully exploit the options of the Rockies. From the town you can take one of its numerous hiking trails across the region’s green plains or in winter, ski down one of the many snowy peaks. Nearby Lake Louise is local icon and famous for its turquoise beauty set against a backdrop of picture-perfect pine-clad mountains.
The ultimate way to experience Canada and Alaska is on a Cruise Tour where you’ll use different modes of transport to ensure you see the best on offer. Travel on the iconic Rocky Mountaineer train through awe-inspiring alpine beauty in the Rockies, explore the rugged terrain of Alaska’s interior and cruise alongside soaring glaciers on the Inside Passage. Expertly planned itineraries ensure you enjoy a wealth of inclusions that highlight the best of this picturesque area.
