1 Vancouver
Welcome to Vancouver! Your Tour Director is on hand late this afternoon to answer any questions.
2 Vancouver
This morning, an included city tour highlights Stanley Park, Chinatown, the harbor and beaches, and more. The remainder of the day is at leisure; your Tour Director will have suggestions for your further exploration of the city. Take a water taxi to lively Granville Island with its outdoor markets, street musicians, and waterfront cafes. Or, visit historic Gastown with its steam - powered clock, antique shops, art galleries, and street vendors
3 Vancouver - Kelowna
This morning, our journey begins in British Columbia's fertile valleys and continues through rich mountain forests to Lake Okanagan. Travel along the lake to the resort city of Kelowna, attractively set on the lake shore and surrounded by orchards and vineyards. Sample the local wines on the included winery tour this afternoon.
4 Kelowna - Glacier National Park - Yoho National Park - Banff National Park
Motor north through the Okanagan Valley, famous for its peaches and vineyards. Then, begin the climb up 4,379 - foot - high Rogers Pass in Glacier National Park. Take a break at the pass, a perfect spot for photos of the impressively rugged mountains, glaciers, and waterfalls. Enter Yoho National Park and ascend Kicking Horse Pass at an altitude of 5,421 feet. Reach Banff National Park, gateway to the majestic Canadian Rockies. An orientation tour includes Banff's unspoiled beauty.
5 Banff National Park
Banff is one of Canada's favourite year - round resorts, with activities ranging from skiing in winter to hiking, boating, and fishing in summer. With this free day, your Tour Director will suggest an optional helicopter ride over the Canadian Rockies.
6 Banff National Park - Lake Louise - Columbia Icefield - Jasper National Park
Spend a day of scenic grandeur, first with Lake Louise - its turquoise waters providing a perfect natural mirror reflecting the mountains and glaciers. A highlight today is a stop at the Columbia Icefield to board the Ice Explorer, an all - terrain vehicle that travels on ice measuring 750 feet thick. Precipitous gorges, snowcapped summits, and lakes of exquisite blues and greens come into view as the motorcoach continues northward into Jasper National Park. Late this afternoon, your Tour Director suggests an optional float trip down the Athabasca River. Enjoy an orientation tour of Jasper townsite upon arrival.
7 Jasper National Park
Today, join our optional excursion to Maligne Lake and Spirit Island, where you embark on a narrated cruise of the lake. The balance of the day is free to enjoy everything Jasper has to offer - from guided hikes and quaint shops to meandering wildlife.
8 Jasper National Park - Mount Robson - Sun Peaks
Leave Jasper and follow the Fraser River to the base of Mount Robson, the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies, peaking at 12,972 feet. Continue following the Yellowhead Highway south along the North Thompson River - a route pioneered by fur trappers a century ago. Overnight at the mountain resort of Sun Peaks.
9 Sun Peaks - Lillooet - Whistler
Head south, following the once - treacherous Cariboo Wagon Trail. Via Lillooet, "Mile 0 of the Gold Rush Route," your motorcoach will follow the shores of Seton and Duffey Lakes, with a late - afternoon arrival in Whistler.
10 Whistler
Spend the day in the alpine resort of Whistler, nestled at the base of breathtaking Blackcomb Mountain. Free time to explore many of the 2010 Winter Olympics' sites or join one of the many optional excursions, including flightseeing by floatplane over the lakes and glaciated peaks of Garibaldi Provincial Park.
11 Whistler - Ferry Crossing - Victoria
Set sail across the spectacular Gulf Islands. Afternoon arrival in Victoria. Visit world - famous Butchart Gardens, one of Victoria's most celebrated sites and rated among the most beautiful gardens in the world. Sightseeing continues with Marine Drive, Bastion Square, and Thunderbird Park with its unusual collection of totem poles.
12 Victoria
Today is at leisure to discover some of the attractions this splendid city has to offer, including the Royal British Columbia Museum. Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont Empress Hotel, an IMAX presentation at the National Geographic Theatre, whale watching on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and fine shopping along Government Street.
13 Victoria - Ferry Crossing - Vancouver (Embarkation)
A scenic ferry crossing to the mainland. Upon arrival, transfer to Canada Place to board Holland America's MS Koningsdam or MS Volendam for an unforgettable Inside Passage cruise. (D)
14 Scenic Cruising: Inside Passage
Spend the day cruising one of the world's most spectacular waterways. Located along the coast of British Columbia, the Inside Passage is the longest sheltered inland waterway in the world. Watch the water for orcas and humpback whales. (B/L/D)
15 Juneau
Located at the foot of grand mountain peaks on Gastineau Channel, Alaska's capital city of Juneau has massive Mendenhall Glacier and the Juneau Icefield at its back door. Visit the rustic shops in town - or get out and kayak, raft, hike, whale watch, flightsee, or fish. There's no end to the adventure because of the long daylight hours. (B/L/D)
16 Skagway
In winter, the sidewalks are all but rolled up in Skagway, so you can imagine the frightful conditions endured by gold prospectors who passed through en route to the Yukon. Take your time and poke your head into every little shop, from the Trail Bench to Lynch & Kennedy's Dry Goods. The Red Onion Saloon, with its honky - tonk piano and costumed barmaids, is a treasure trove of memorabilia featuring pictures of Klondike Kate, Peahull Annie, and other historic characters. To complete the picture of those rip - roaring days, visit the nostalgic Trail of '98 Museum. (B/L/D)
17 Scenic Cruising: Glacier Bay
Glacier Bay has more actively calving tidewater glaciers than anyplace else in the world. How does it feel when a colossal chunk of ice splits off a glacier and crashes into the sea? The sound is like thunder. The impact shoots water hundreds of meters into the air. You hold your breath as you capture the moment on camera, then you wait for it all to happen again. (B/L/D)
18 Ketchikan
Built over the water and up weathered stairways, Ketchikan clings to the shores of Tongass Narrows and drapes the mountains with a hospitable air. (B/L/D)
19 Scenic Cruising: Inside Passage
Arguably one of the greatest cruising routes in the world, the Inside Passage stretches through stunning landscapes, from Misty Fjords National Monument to famed Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve. Sailing the Inside Passage offers opportunities to spot some of Alaska's most iconic wildlife, with humpback whales and orca plying the bountiful waters alongside the ships, bald eagles soaring overhead and brown bears lumbering on the shoreline. (B/L/D)
20 Vancouver (Disembarkation)
Your holiday ends this morning. Please schedule homebound flights after noon. (B)

“Canada Alaska”
- NSW, Australia Aug 2019 3 Helpful Votes

First time traveller with Cosmos. Bit concerned when it had no meals included but found it easy to source meals. Our tour guide was brilliant and our bus driver did a fantastic job getting us around. Highlight of our trip was the great bunch of people on our tour. Would definitely travel with Cosmos again.

“Everything went perfectly”
- NSW, Australia Aug 2019 4 Helpful Votes

We travelled to Canada for a 13 night coach trip from Vancouver to Banff, Sun Peaks, Jasper, Whistler and Victoria on Vancouver Island. The coach was very comfy and the accommodation was nice. Our tour director was very knowledgeable and very approachable. We then went on a 7 day cruise up to Alaska which was magical. I cannot fault any part of this trip. Everything went perfectly with no hiccups and was handled extremely professionally.

What an amazing journey we had with Globus. I'm asked what were the highlights - it was all highlights! The scenery, the hotels we stayed in were all amazing. The fellow passengers were all wonderful, we made some wonderful friendships along the way. I would recommend Global Journeys any day - Jemma was amazing answering all our questions and so helpful.

We had an absolutely amazing holiday, couldn't be happier with the tour we booked through Global Journeys starting with Jemma Rosen who booked our holiday and helped with any questions I had. The Cosmos Majestic Canadian Rockies tour was perfect with 2 day stays in Vancouver, Banff, Jasper, Whistler and Victoria all with great accommodation.
