Canada & Alaska

Canada and Alaska are firmly planted as bucket-list adventures in the minds of many. Our 21-day Grand Canadian Rockies & Alaskan Cruise itinerary starts with two weeks journeying from Banff to Vancouver, through Canada’s Rocky Mountains, which cut a swathe through the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia; the jagged peaks soaring above a landscape of forests, lakes and glaciers. Among the tour’s many highlights is a fabulous two-day journey aboard the Rocky Mountaineer, one of the world’s most scenic railway journeys.

From Vancouver we join our cruise ship, Holland America’s Koningsdam, for a relaxing yet thrilling seven-night cruise through Alaska’s famed Inside Passage. Ports of call include Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan, with visits to Glacier Bay and Tracy Arm Inlet before the cruise ends in Vancouver.

Australia & New Zealand

When you think of New Zealand, its incredible pooling lakes, geysers and sky-high snow-capped mountains spring to mind. But that’s only half of the adventure. Explore Australia’s raw and rugged outback; the cosmopolitan city of Sydney; the spectacular sights of Uluru; tropical Queensland and of course, the breath-taking Great Barrier Reef, which are all destinations on our 31-day Highlights of Australia & New Zealand.

If you have the time, you can also consider one of our Combination Tours where you can pair a selection of our longer tours of Australia and New Zealand, with itineraries from 44 to 61 days.
