Luxury tours of Canada & Alaska

Canada is a land of uncommon beauty, a vast kaleidoscope of natural wonders spliced with cultures that are as inviting as they are enticing. From its breathtaking glaciers to its vast open spaces, it’s a land that some go to get lost in, and others go to find themselves.

There’s something about a Canada tour that appeals to the adventurer in us all.

Whether you’ve been entranced by tales of grizzly bears or Anne of Green Gables, or been awed by images of immense mountains, crystalline lakes and log cabins, you’re sure to be both surprised and delighted by what you find.

Not only does Canada possess all that magic and more, it also has world-class cities, 21st century technology, and a dynamic modern culture.

Destinations to discover

The wild wonder of the West

From the great Rocky Mountains to glacial lakes that shimmer in magical shades of blue, from picture perfect alpine resorts to beautiful harbour cities, the west of Canada is an expansive wonderland that’s as varied as it is magnificent.

Travelling here presents you with the best of all worlds, and you’d be wise to make the most of the region’s pristine wilderness where glaciated mountains stand over an unruly Pacific and rainforests wrap cities.



The elegance of the East

From urbane Ottawa, the nation’s intriguing capital – a bilingual city, to beautiful Québec City, one of the oldest settlements in North America, with its European-style ‘old town’ and its renaissance-era ramparts, you’ll find Canada’s historic eastern side an unexpected treat.

Embrace all the man-made and natural wonder on offer here, from culturally distinct French-Canadian speaking Québec to the magnificent Niagara Falls, to mention just two highlights.



Stunning rail journeys across the Rockies

While train travel can be a blissful experience whatever terrain you happen to be traversing, journeys through the mountainous and forested regions of America’s north are so entrancing you may never want them to end.

King amongst these has to be the Rocky Mountaineer, unquestionably among the most spectacular in the world, which will take you over two days of all-daylight rail travel across the North Thompson and Fraser Valleys and the Rocky Mountains.

Rocky Mountaineer Tours

Unparalleled vistas are made even more unforgettable by the unimpeded views you enjoy from its glass domed carriage. Not only do the vistas stretch for miles in all directions, so does the sky above you. The experience is enhanced further by GoldLeaf Service, which includes drinks, gourmet breakfast and lunch in the downstairs dining carriage.

Wonder in every locale

We’re the only Australian tour operator to offer the exclusive full range of Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, some of which are so iconic they’ve become destinations in their own right.

On a Scenic journey of Canada, there is wonder to experience at every key locale, and that’s before you even leave the lobby.

You’ll get to experience it all for yourself, from the incredible Fairmont Empress, which attracts throngs of visitors from afar simply to experience its fabulous afternoon tea, to the Fairmont Banff Springs where you’ll enjoy views that bring Canada’s incomparable natural beauty into your room.
