Experience the wonders of British Columbia, the stunning Alaskan coastline, and the wilds of the Canadian Rocky Mountains

On your 15-day trip you'll discover the very best that Alaska and British Columbia have to offer, enjoying a luxury coastal cruise and a first-class train journey into the heart of the Rockies.

Fly from the UK to Vancouver before spending seven nights sailing through Alaska's Inside Passage - a network of waterways winding through the fjords and mighty forests of USA's largest state. Spot humpback whales, orca, bald eagles and bears. Learn about the indigenous Alaskan communities. Dine on freshly caught fish in the state capital Juneau. Discover the sites of the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush. And hike some of the region's beautiful mountains.

Then leave behind your cruise ship and climb on board the Rocky Mountaineer for an unforgettable train ride from the Vancouver coast, through forests and river canyons, over high mountain passes, along dark railway tunnels, and eventually into the snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Rockies. End your journey in Calgary before flying back to the UK.
