Highlights

 

Experience a front-row perch to some of Canada and Alaska’s most breathtaking sights on this 15 day Classic Canada tour, which includes a journey on the Rocky Mountaineer and a cruise of the Inside Passage.

Land in Calgary, the Canadian city that has been affectionately dubbed ‘Cowtown’ thanks to its penchant for rodeo and Western culture. Travel to Banff by road and stare out the window at the incredible rugged landscape as it rolls by and then set out to discover this famous resort town upon your arrival. Swap roads for the railway as you board the iconic Rocky Mountaineer; one of the most renowned train journeys in the world. Enjoy an overnight stop in Kamloops as you traverse Canada westward to Vancouver. Some of the scenic highlights of the Rocky Mountaineer travel include the Continental Divide, Rogers Pass, the Spiral Tunnels and the Cascade Mountains.

Call upon your sea legs as you board the Celebrity Eclipse and begin your luxurious cruise of the Inside Passage. Keep your fingers crossed for sightings of orca and humpback whales, bald eagles, puffins and even bears as you voyage into the Alaska Inside Passage and Icy Strait Point. Be in awe of the majesty of Hubbard Glacier and perhaps even see a mammoth ice carving break off and float out to sea. Make port calls in Juneau and Ketchikan and explore these unique frontier cities by foot. Conclude your time in Canada in Vancouver with a half-day sightseeing tour.

The following is provided to assist our guests, but we leave the decision to provide a gratuity entirely at their discretion:

The group leader: Our past guests have left gratuities based on their overall service of CAD $6 per person per day

The driver & assistant:  Our past guests have left gratuities based on their overall service of CAD $4 per person per day

Gratuities aren’t compulsory on your trip, but they can make a big difference to locals employed in the tourism industry. Your guide will hand around two envelopes towards the end of the tour (1 Tour Guide and 1 Driver envelope) to make the process as easy as possible.
