Adventures in Canada and Alaska

Another year, and another Great Rail Journey escorted tour!

This time we are heading west, flying to Calgary in Canada, before travelling through the Rocky Mountains both by coach and train aboard the prestigious Rocky Mountaineer Train all the way to Vancouver. We then board The MS Volendam, a luxury cruise liner operated by Holland and America Line, for a weeks exploring the Alaskan Inside Passage. After our cruise we have tacked on a few nights in Seattle – time to cross another American state off our scratch map!

To say we are excited is an understatement! As usual, I’ll be blogging en route.

I can’t even begin to describe how much we enjoyed our trip, and wholeheartedly recommend this trip to anyone. Travel with Great Rail Journeys and you have the security of a tour manager and logistics team behind you every step of the way. You also have enough free time for you not to feel like you are on an escorted tour. But you get to enjoy their group discounts, which means the price is really competitive and hard to beat by going solo.
