Yellowstone National Park is one of nature’s great masterpieces. A geothermal wonderland of powerful geysers, thundering waterfalls and grassy plains where animals continue to live wild and free; it’s a bucket list item which too often remains just out of reach - until now. Together in one fantastic trip with the Canadian Rockies and Alaska’s Inside Passage, Yellowstone is now more accessible than ever. Make 2017 the year to finally explore this unique wonder.

The Offer
Take a walk on the wild side with an 18 day journey through the incredible national parks of North America. Start the adventure with a short intro tour of Seattle before heading for the rolling fields and wine lands of eastern Washington State, partially tracing the route of Lewis and Clark. Next, brush up on American history with a tour through Montana’s scenic Cowboy Country en route to the incredible Yellowstone National Park. Wander the spouting geysers, bubbling mud pots and turquoise hot springs, keeping a look out for the abundant native wildlife. From there discover the beauty of Banff, Mount Revelstoke, Glacier and Yoho Nationals Parks, taking in iconic Bow Falls and Moraine Lake. Gaze out to glaciers and waterfalls along the jaw-dropping Icefields Parkway, and have the opportunity to ride the Ice Explorer on Athabasca Glacier. Just when it seems the trip can’t get any better, set sail aboard the Celebrity Infinity for a thrilling seven night Alaska Inside Passage cruise. Spot huge glaciers, docks in ports such as Ketchikan and Juneau, and keep an eye out for humpback whales and seals. With return flights, eight nights accommodation, a seven night Celebrity Cruise, 25 meals and much more, this is set to be the trip of a lifetime!

Sparsely inhabited, one can picture the romantic American West as it was and remains today.

It's onward to Yellowstone, established in 1872 as the world's first National Park. You could spend a year in Yellowstone and still only scratch the surface of its wonders. Watch in awe as Old Faithful's waters arc nearly 100 feet (30 metres) into the air—as it has done approximately every 90 minutes since the Washburn Expedition discovered it in 1870.

You'll never forget the sight of 40-tonne whales hurling themselves into the air, almost completely escaping the water. If you're especially lucky, you could see them swimming together to create a bubble net, trapping and eating fish by the giant mouthful.

Overnight: Celebrity Cruises - 'Celebrity Infinity' ship

Day 11: Icy Strait Point, Alaska - 3:30pm to 10:00pm (B,L,D)
