Welcome to a world of towering mountain peaks, lush green forests, iceberg alleys, cobblestoned cities and red deserts. We’re talking about Canada and Alaska of course – and what better way to experience all these diverse land and seascapes than with APT on a Canada and Alaska journey (featuring the USA)?
This season, APT has introduced a new style of travel to Canada and Alaska that is sure to awaken the avid explorer within. With a range of Luxury Small Ship and Expedition Cruising itineraries, you can get close to the action along the Inside Passage. From hulking glaciers, ghostly icebergs, whale sightings and remote Tlingit village visits, this style of touring is well suited to those hoping to gain an in-depth and enlightening discovery of both Canada and Alaska.
Western Canada is all about natural wonders. The famous Rockies Mountain Range unfolds before disbelieving eyes and is best seen aboard the Rocky Mountaineer, the only passenger train which carves a path through the Rockies. Gaze out onto spectacular scenery from your GoldLeaf glass-domed carriage, and stay on the lookout for the unique wildlife that calls the mountain ranges home.
Canada’s awe-inspiring Rocky Mountains are right on your doorstep when you stay at the iconic ‘Castle in the Rockies’ Fairmont Banff Springs in Banff National Park. Verdant forests, glacial lakes and crystalline rivers are painted across the landscape, and you can appreciate the spectacular view from the comfort of your suite.
Enjoy quintessential Canadian experiences with APT’s exclusive and unique Signature Experiences. From meeting a Mountie in Banff to spotting bears on a Blue River Safari and wandering the immaculate grounds of The Butchart Gardens in Victoria on your own before the crowds. These are all oncein- a-lifetime moments that no amount of words or pictures can adequately describe.
On an Alaska Inside Passage Cruise with APT, you’ll step aboard either a Holland America Line or Princess Cruises ship, where you will be guaranteed a verandah Stateroom. Enjoy complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages throughout your cruise on Holland America Line sailings and with dinner on Princess Cruises’ sailings. Watch in awe as the snow-capped mountains, hulking glaciers and historical harbourside towns glide past as your ship slices through the glassy surface of the Inside Passage.
