The ultimate adventure

Picture this: You’re relaxing on your private balcony, a chilled glass of bubbly in hand, watching the dramatic fjords slide by. Behind you lies the vibrant city of Vancouver. Ahead, the wilderness of Alaska. After a day spotting whales and bald eagles, listening to the thunder of calving ice, and standing face-to-face with a glacier, you’re wondering if it could possibly get any better. And you smile because this is only the beginning. On a Canada rail and cruise holiday, your experience doesn’t stop there. You get the best of both worlds with two incredible holidays in one.

An Alaska cruise paired with a trip on the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer train is one of the finest ways to explore Western Canada and the only way to see the Rockies and Alaska if you want to do things properly. Onboard Rocky Mountaineer’s daylight train you’ll be treated like royalty. The impeccable service, gourmet dining and dramatic views continue on your cruise. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience, with memories that will last forever. In Eastern Canada, VIA Rail links the vibrant cities while a cruise of the St. Lawrence River is the best way to see Ontario and Quebec.
