Encounter the hidden gems
of Canada & Alaska

Straddling the north of the Americas, from cosmopolitan Vancouver to the remoteness of the Arctic tundra, Canada & Alaska offers something for everyone. Find out more about these incredible regions with our partner brand, Natural Focus.

Our Alaska & Canada Tours offer a range of magnificent experiences, from small-ship cruising the Inside Passage to the Rocky Mountain rail journeys, back country wildlife lodges, polar bear viewing and the Aurora Borealis. You can cruise beneath glaciers one day and then explore romantic cities like Vancouver, Montreal and Quebec the next.

We offer personalised holidays, where you choose the experiences, tours and accommodation that you want. Rather than big ships with thousands of passengers we offer a choice of small cruise ships and luxury yachts which get you close to the action. Join one of our guaranteed departures, select from one of our many specially designed itineraries, or let our experienced Canada & Alaska travel specialists tailor-make a trip to suit your specific interests and budget.

With the emphasis on both adventure and comfort, our Un-Cruise Adventures explore Alaska’s stunning wilderness by small expedition ship or luxury yacht.

Rocky Mountaineer Train

Explore the magnificent scenery of British Columbia and Alberta on the famous Rocky Mountaineer. Be dazzled by snowy mountain peaks, glacial lakes, waterfalls, and ancient forests. All tours take place in the comfort of Rocky Mountaineer’s rail coaches during daylight, so you won’t miss a minute of the diverse beauty and awe-inspiring scenery of Canada’s West.

Denali Backcountry Lodges

Denali National Park

This huge national park (6 million acres) is a scenic wilderness with a vast array of wildlife, such as grizzly bears, caribou, moose, wolves and many species of raptors. It is also home to Mt Denali (formerly known as Mt McKinley), the highest peak in North America. Within Denali are a few select backcountry lodges that offer comfortable, cosy accommodation in a picture postcard setting.

Katmai Wilderness Lodge

Katmai Wilderness Lodge

Alaska’s Katmai Wilderness Lodge claims to offer “the world’s most spectacular bear viewing”, and few would argue. This is the only private lodge on the coast of Katmai National Park’s 3.6 million acre wilderness renowned for its healthy population of grizzly (brown) bears. The preserve is also famous for its volcanoes, rugged landscapes and plethora of other wildlife.

Knight Inlet Lodge

Knight Inlet Lodge has a reputation for being one of the best places to view grizzly (brown) bears in the wild. This comfortable, rustic floating lodge is nestled in the only protected cove on the 100 mile long inlet, where its only neighbours are bears, mountain goats, otters and eagles! Each day is filled with activities accompanied by trained naturalists.

Polar Bear Viewing

Polar Bear Viewing

Experience one of the world’s great wildlife adventures on the shores of Hudson Bay in Manitoba. Each year in the autumn, scores of polar bears gather, waiting for the bay to freeze over so that they can venture out onto the ice to hunt for seals, their favourite prey. The world’s largest carnivore, magnificent polar bears can weigh up to 500 kg and stand up to 3 metres tall.

Aurora Borealis

Be thrilled by the sight of the spectacular Aurora Borealis at the Northern Lights Resort & SPA, just 20 minutes south of Whitehorse. This charming resort is set in a clearing which provides uninterrupted views of these ethereal dancing lights. As the Northern Lights Resort & SPA is a prime location in the Yukon area to see the elusive Northern Lights, we urge you to book early.

Winter Wonderland Tours

Dogsledding

On this exhilarating wilderness experience, you will drive your own dog team and be taught all aspects of mushing. You will spend a number of days mushing on trails through some of the most spectacular landscapes in the Yukon – challenging but so much fun! To participate, you must be physically fit, enjoy working with dogs and have good team spirit.

Kings of the Arctic

Embark on an exciting small-group land and ice-based expedition to discover the true nature of the Arctic – from pods of whales to polar bears, tundra flora to stunning vistas of icebergs beneath vivid blue skies.
