per person
Duration: 22 Nights
Destination: Vancouver, Canada
Region: North America
Deal Code: PAR15Z9




This two-week guided tour traverses the most majestic terrain of Canada before dipping into the U.S. Start in Vancouver, where the famous totem poles in the lush Stanley Park are worth of a photo — or 10. Cruise across the serene, mirror-like waters of Maligne Lake, watching as the reflection of the Canadian Rockies wave in the vessel’s wake. Enjoy a tour of Glacier Skywalk, a glass walkway above the Sunwapta Valley, where you will see waterfalls and wildlife. Explore the rugged wonder of Banff National Park on a helicopter or gondola ride. In Washington, enjoy an artisanal lunch paired with local wines. And look for flying fish at Seattle’s Pike Place Market, where fishmongers at the world-famous farmers market are apt to toss fresh filets from stand to stand.

Sail roundtrip from Seattle to Alaska for 9 nights, including a full-day cruising the astounding Glacier Bay. The beauty of this area is captivating. In Icy Strait Point, you'll find the state's largest Native Tlingit village and the world's longest zip line. Since every shop is Native-owned, this is the place for authentic crafts. Skagway offers an entertaining look at Alaska's gold-mining past. You can even pan for gold yourself. It's an easy town to explore on foot but to view Alaska's gorgeous interior, take a ride on the White Pass Railway. For a tasty treat, find the Klondike Doughboy shop. Their warm, fried dough sprinkled with cinnamon sugar is fast becoming a legend.
