Canada and Alaska are firmly planted as bucket-list adventures in the minds of many. The awe-inspiring Canadian Rockies and their shimmering glacier-fed lakes, unforgettable mountainscapes, alpine forests and world-famous wildlife make for a holiday like no other. Discover these true wanderlust destinations with Distant Journeys on our 14-day Grand Canadian Rockies or our 21-day Grand Canadian Rockies & Alaskan Cruise. Explore each country’s highlights at a leisurely pace, guided to the must-see sights and experiences whilst in Canada & Alaska, with the freedom to enjoy your holiday as you please.
Join us as we visit beautiful Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper and the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver. Board the iconic Rocky Mountaineer, one of the world’s most famous rail journeys, weaving along scenic valleys whilst looking for grizzly bears and enjoying world-class service. Spot whales in Victoria and cruise the wilderness of Alaska’s Inside Passage on board Holland America Line’s ‘Pinnacle Class’ ship, the Koningsdam.
Alaska’s Inside Passage is considered one of the greatest routes to explore, this protected network of waterways offers plenty of opportunities to spot some of Alaska’s most iconic wildlife from our prime position on deck – humpback whales and orcas play in the bountiful waters; bald eagles soar overhead and brown bears are scattered along the shoreline. Ports of call include Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan, with visits to Glacier Bay and Tracy Arm Inlet, all whilst enjoying impeccable hospitality, dining and entertainment perfectly honed over Holland America’s 150-year cruising history.
Other highlights include a stay at the iconic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and a drive out onto the Athabasca Glacier, all with excitement and ease when you tour with Distant Journeys. And if you’re not ready for the adventure to end, you can extend your holiday with an extension to breath-taking Knight Inlet – the perfect finale to your Canadian & Alaskan holiday.
Along the way, you’ll be guided by experienced Tour, Train and Cruise Managers. A highly experienced Tour Manager is an absolute must on any escorted tour, playing several roles to ensure we deliver a successful tour; a leader who works tirelessly to ensure everything runs smoothly, a ‘destination expert’, happy to share their local knowledge, recommendations and advice, and a friendly, resourceful presence always on hand to help. Distant Journeys’ Tour Managers are all personally selected to ensure they are the best in the business. Their enthusiasm is unfeigned; they love nothing more than to share their country with our guests.
When travelling on the Rocky Mountaineer, your hosts are dedicated to making your onboard experience as memorable as the scenery outside, from refreshing your wine glass to sharing stories and helping out with special requests. Should you be travelling to Alaska, Holland America’s crew will be there to take care of your every need.
