Overview

Read 19 reviews and enjoy exclusive savings on Globus 20 Day Grand Western Canada Vacation with Alaska. 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...read more one encompassing holiday. 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 holiday 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.

Western Canada Alaska 0 , WA, Australia, Sep 2022
We enjoyed our tour and cruise. Our Tour Director Alba was amazing. Her knowledge was incredible. Half the hotels were very good and some were below expectations. A hiccup in Jasper with no power and hot water at our hotel and although Alba and Globus tried to find us other accommodation there was none. An uncomfortable 2 days. We enjoyed the itinerary ...read more on both the Tour and Cruise, the scenery was amazing.
Excellent tour of the Canadian Rockies with Globus 2 , VIC, Australia, Jul 2019
Everything on this tour either met or exceeded expectations. The tour guide had the balance right between talking too much and keeping us interested with his commentary. He did a great job and made it look effortless. The scenery was magnificent and with no forest fires during July, and kind weather, we were able to do and see everything that was on ...read more the itinerary. Too many magnificent lakes and mountains to single one out - all of the scenery was grand. I chose to do most of the additional tours and am pleased that I did as they were all worthwhile and complemented the tour. Really easy to get along with group of people comprising several nationalities and a wide age group. One of the best tours I have done.
20 day Canada and Alaska   1 , NSW, Australia, Jun 2019
Had an absolutely fantastic time, every facet from booking through Global (thanks Madeline and Tracey) to the day we landed back home was filled with memorable moments including bears, whales, deer, elk, eagles, otters and many other wildlife sightings. The scenery was breathtaking at times and left you in awe of mother nature in all her glory. Hotels ...read more were fantastic, meals regular and of a high standard, out tour director Caterina was an absolute joy and so organised it left us with no thinking to do at all, just sit back and enjoy the trip.

Driver Mike was on time, professional, courteous and just the guy you would want behind the wheel on the open roads of Canada. Pace of the road tour was great with just enough two day stops to allow you to unwind, the cruise was also fine but just did not quite live up to the road portion of the trip with a half day to start and finish (boarding and disembarking), and two days all cruising it left 4 days for adventures.
Really Grand Western Canada and Alaska Cruise   1 , QLD, Australia, Jun 2019
We both think our 13 Day Globus Tour was a very good choice and were delighted we took the Holland America cruise extension. Global Journeys helped make sure we had all the details sorted out well in advance and everything went to plan. The Globus tour director and coach driver both did an excellent job of keeping everything running smoothly. They anticipated ...read more almost everything we might need, were entertaining, and were kind and courteous guides to some spectacular parts of British Columbia and Alberta.

With several bear sightings at Whistler, Jasper and elsewhere not to mention all the other wildlife, marine life and exquisite scenery there were numerous memorable moments. The absolute highlight of the Alaska cruise has to be Glacier Bay National Park (yet it gets only a brief line in the Globus brochure). We greatly enjoyed the formal dinners each evening and the very leisurely cruise through the (tranquil) Inside Passage.
Spectacular Grand Western Canada Vacation and Alaska Cruise 1 , VIC, Australia, Jun 2019
We thoroughly recommend this tour with Globus. It was very well organised, we never felt rushed, were entertained by our guide on the longer drives and had freedom to buy our own lunches which we preferred. I chose this particular itinerary as I wanted to spend time at the Butchard gardens in Victoria. We had plenty of time at the gardens followed by ...read more a wonderful buffet meal served in their Blue Poppy restaurant on site.

We toured in June and had amazing weather the whole trip. In Whistler it was 30 deg. Celsius with blue skies and we spent all afternoon travelling on gondolas from peak to peak and back again amazed to see people skiing on the snow and yet we were wearing t-shirts and not cold. Our Globus tour guide, Doug Miller and our coach driver Keith did a superb job and I would certainly do a Globus Tour again in the future.
Wonderful holiday 1 , QLD, Australia, May 2019
Thanks Global Journeys for your help with this wonderful holiday with Globus. We thought this was the best time to travel as there was lots of snow around still and it wasn't too hot.The hotels we stayed at were wonderful as was our tour guide.The extras that we took were very good and you won't go wrong with this tour.
