Spectacular Rockies & Alaskan Cruise (Scenic)

FROM $12,795

There’s simply no other way to convey the wonders of a region that is home to both the magnificent Ice field’s Parkway and Inside Passage. It’s a region that harbours the grizzly, perhaps planet Earth’s greatest predator, as well as the mild-mannered moose. On one extreme you can look forward to the charming English-influenced Victoria, on the other there are towns so remote that they can only be accessed by air or sea. This itinerary showcases all that and more – beautiful scenery, fascinating towns, a friendly and inviting culture, and glorious national parks. It’s so much more than just ‘awesome’.
