18 Day Discover USA, Alaska & Canada

  • Visit Yellowstone, Banff, Yoho & Glacier NP
  • Cruise Alaska's stunning Inside Passage
Includes Return International Flights

There is wilderness… and then there is 'the wild'. Radiating with pristine natural beauty, this 18 day tour and cruise package unlocks the very best of the latter - exploring the U.S.'s pacific northwest, Canada's great white north, and the last frontier of them all - Alaska. If you’re looking for untouched lakes, snowy mountains, stampeding buffalo and boiling geysers, fresh pine forests, and crisp glaciers kissing frozen ocean shores then you’ve come to the right place!

Set off first from the vibrant city of Seattle, Washington before passing through the rugged cowboy country of Montana and Idaho. Enjoy the wide open spaces and unique wonders of the world’s first national park, Yellowstone. See the legendary Old Faithful, spot roaming wildlife and feel the heat from steaming pools and bubbling mud pits atop this massive super volcano. Then take in the grandeur of the Rockies and the vivid turquoise colour of Lake Louise as you drive into Banff on the Icefields Parkway- one of the most stunning drives in the world. Experience the awe-inspiring landscapes of Yoho, Glacier, and Mount Revelstoke National Parks. Tour bustling Vancouver and then set sail aboard your ‘Norwegian Jewel’ Alaskan cruise through Glacier Bay National Park and the Inside Passage. Be dwarfed by the Hubbard Glacier’s colossal wall of blue ice, take the opportunity to enjoy some of the freshest and most delicious salmon anywhere on earth, keep an eye out for breeching humpback whales, orcas, seals and so much more.

With return international flights, eight nights quality hotel accommodation, 24 meals including all meals while cruising, English-speaking tour guides and more - this is the perfect chance to take a step out of the ordinary...and into the wild.

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.
