CANADIAN ROCKIES & ALASKA WITH THE QUEEN

For June 2023, indulge in a one-time special holiday that combines in one stylish and relaxed journey two places on everyone's bucket list: Alaska's Inside Passage including stunning Glacier Bay and the majestic Canadian Rockies, both at the perfect time of the year.

LEARN MORE

For decades, Canada has been our most popular foreign destination and we know Canada better than some Canadians. Whether it is where to get the best Montreal smoked meat sandwich in all of Quebec (Schwartz Deli on Boulevard St Laurent) or the best seafood in Vancouver (Joe Fortes on Thurlow St) we know Canada inside and out. This is why our annual Fall Royal Canadian Holiday with the Queen Mary 2 or our Springtime in the Canadian Rockies program always sells out.

Naturally, this knowledge extends to Via Rail Canada, Canada’s provider of excellent rail passenger service. We know the trains, the accommodations, the services and the stopover points. For superb Canadian holidays founded on decades of experience, we invite you to join us. All Aboard!
