Stepping down from a giant Ice Explorer right onto the Athabasca Glacier at the Columbia Icefield; a powerful, dynamic force, constantly shaping the regional landscape.


A blend of dramatic Canadian mountain scenery and rugged Alaskan shoreline, this 18-day cruise and tour holiday will expose you to a wonderland of scenic delights in two of North America’s most glorious regions. Journey to the mountain town of Banff (gateway to the awe-inspiring Canadian Rockies and glittering Lake Louise); admire the iconic landscapes of Jasper National Park; and sightsee in vibrant Vancouver.

Inspire Me - Rockies and Alaska Grand Discovery

See snow-topped mountains reflected in shimmering lakes

In the Rockies, we’ll stop off at a trio of Canada’s most spectacular lakes. In Banff National Park, we’ll head for Lake Louise, where impossibly turquoise waters sit in the shadow of Victoria Glacier. In Jasper National Park, we’ll spend time at Medicine Lake, surrounded by forested slopes, and Maligne Lake, one of the most photographed in the world.

Hear footsteps crunch as you walk across a glacier

Our route from Banff to Jasper takes us via Columbia Icefield. Weather permitting, we’ll swap our coach for an all-terrain Ice Explorer and head out onto a 10,000-year-old sheet of ice. At a suitable spot, we’ll stop and walk on this ancient ice (and perhaps fill a water bottle with fresh glacier water).

Wake early to watch the sun rise over the Inside Passage

Our Holland America Line cruise takes us along the famously beautiful Inside Passage. The ship will glide past islands, inlets, fjords and snow-dusted mountains. If the weather’s kind, it’s well worth setting your alarm for dawn – head up on deck for a front-row seat for the sunrise.

Spy orcas swimming alongside the ship

The waters off the coast of Alaska and British Columbia are patrolled by pods of humpbacks and orcas. Keep an eye out during your cruise – if you’re lucky, you’ll spot some swimming close to the ship (and if not, optional whale-watching excursions can take you to their favourite swimming spots for an even better chance of seeing them).

Pack binoculars, for spotting wildlife
