Scenic Tours launch 2015 Canada, Alaska and USA program


After travelling to Canada for 16 years, Scenic Tours has perfected the ultimate luxury journey through this spectacular region and is the only travel operator to have an exclusive partnership with Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, the global leader in luxury accommodation. Explore even more of Canada and North America in 2015 with six new itineraries. Travel by Le Massif de Charlevoix Train from Baie-Saint-Paul to Québec City in Canada’s East; steamboat along the Snake and Columbia Rivers on board the authentic ‘American Empress’ in the USA’s Pacific Northwest, and visit the best of North America’s national parks – from America’s first national park, Yellowstone, through to Glacier National Park in Canada. Scenic has also introduced an unforgettable seven night luxury small ship cruise through Alaska’s Inside Passage on board the 5-star mega-yacht, L’Austral, visiting towns such as Petersburg and Haines which are inaccessible by larger cruise ships. Also new for 2015 are two new trip extensions. Witness the largest concentration of grizzly bears in British Columbia at Knight Inlet Lodge which is open exclusively for Scenic guests in 2015, or marvel at the Northern Lights on a five day trip to Canada’s remote Yukon Territory. New cultural experiences include heli flightseeing over Québec and the traditional musical ride of the North West Mounted Police in Canada; a flight over the Yukon River landing north of the Arctic Circle at Coldfoot in Alaska, and a tour of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens in Charleston and an Oregon Shakespeare Festival performance in the USA. Foodies will delight in a visit to the state of Oregon where Scenic guests can sample local produce on Oregon’s gourmet trail, and in Portland can choose from an epicurean walking tour or discover Portland’s curbside cuisine on a guided tour of the city’s best food carts, tasting trucks and hidden kitchens. Scenic Tours is offering some fantastic new Earlybird offers for bookings made by 30 November 2014, including free return flights to Canada including taxes.
