(35 days, Victoria - New York City, 2015)
Grand Tour of the Rockies, Alaska & New England Tour
This 35 day Canadian tour of the Rockies, British Columbia, Niagara Falls, Montréal and Québec City is accompanied by an Alaskan cruise and America’s New England region.

Starting in Victoria, Canada you will visit the world famous Butchart Gardens before heading to Whistler, stopping off at the awesome Shannon Falls. From Whistler you will travel to Hat Creek Ranch and the alpine ski village of Sun Peaks. Continuing through British Columbia’s Cariboo region you will stand at the base of Mount Robson before arriving into Jasper.

Next, travel south along the incredible Icefields Parkway where you will take the Ice Explorer onto the mighty Athabasca Glacier before arriving at beautiful Lake Louise. You will visit Emerald Lake and Natural Bridge en route to Banff where you will ride the Banff Gondola to the top of Sulphur Mountain. Next, board the incredible Rocky Mountaineer for a spectacular journey to Vancouver via Kamloops.

You will then visit Vancouver’s rainforest and new Cliffwalk before boarding your luxurious cruise ship for your voyage along Alaska’s dramatic coastline. This journey takes in the isolated capital of Juneau; Skagway, the gateway to the Klondike; the iceberg-strewn waters of Glacier Bay National Park; and the salmon capital of the world, Ketchikan before returning south to Vancouver.

You will then fly to Montréal and visit the exquisite Notre-Dame Basilica before continuing onto Québec City, the only walled city in North America. En route to Canada’s capital, Ottawa you will stop in at Parc des Chutes de la Chaudière to witness the spectacular waterfalls and Parc Omega to discover native wildlife such as bear, wolves, wapitis, red deer and beavers in their natural habitat. From Ottawa you will cruise to Kingston, the gateway to the beautiful Thousand Islands region marking the border between Canada and the USA. Your next stop is Canada’s largest city, Toronto followed by the spectacular Niagara Falls.

Next, cross the border into New York State via the Rainbow Bridge and travel through the rolling Appalachian Mountains of Pennsylvania before arriving into Lancaster, home to the Amish and Mennonite communities. You will then visit Washington D.C. where you will tour the incredible monuments and buildings including the White House. Finally, you will travel north to Philadelphia before finishing in the exciting and vibrant New York City.
