GLOBUS 2022: Grand Western Canada Vacation with Alaska Cruise (CGI)
20 Day Tour from Vancouver to Vancouver
Who says you can't have it all? Certainly not Canadians! From international cities to national parks, snow-dusted summits to vineyard-dotted valleys, dramatic glaciers to soothing hot springs, and the calmest of lakes to the wildest of creatures, Western Canada presents the greatest range of sights and cities, not to mention mountains! Pack your bags for a variety of adventure as we've packed the best of British Columbia and Alberta into one encompassing vacation. On this grand tour of Western Canada, you'll spend time in the multicultural metropolis of Vancouver and the British-infused city of Victoria before trading the pubs of the 'garden city' for the peaks of the Canadian Rockies. Devour the majestic scenery of four national parks - Glacier, Yoho, Banff, and Jasper - get a taste of resort life in renowned Whistler, sip your way through the vineyards of charming lakeside Kelowna, and clink your glasses to mountains of fun. Make a grand vacation even grander by adding a leisurely Alaska cruise to your tour of Western Canada. While your ship will sail through the glacial beauty of the Inside Passage, Tracy Arm, and Glacier Bay National Park, you'll personally cruise through several exciting ports of call, including the capital city of Juneau, the gold rush town of Skagway, and totem-pole-dotted Ketchikan.
