Reconnect with nature as you explore the natural beauties that Canada has to offer. This bespoke voyage includes many of British Columbia’s most exciting experiences that are surrounded by picturesque and untouched landscapes.
Depart Dublin on your comfortable Air Canada flight and stay entertained for the long-haul journey with all the latest movies and television shows. Arrive in Vancouver, a must-visit destination for anyone interested in intriguing cultural sites, tantalising cuisine and world class shopping.
You will check in to your pristine hotel in the Georgian Court Hotel Vancouver, centrally located to allow you the freedom to undertake any of Vancouver’s fantastic excursions. Maybe take a day trip to Grouse Mountain and stand on ‘The Eye of the Wind’ – one of the world’s only wind turbines with a viewing platform – and gaze down at the cityscape. Perhaps get your heart pumping by trying one of the many exciting activities Vancouver has to offer. Water sport enthusiasts should travel to the idyllic Deep Cove in the “Indian Arm” glacial fjord where you can try kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding.
Continue your Canadian adventure with a two-day all-inclusive rail journey on the Rocky Mountaineer. Here you will witness dramatic changes in scenery, from the lush green fields of the Fraser Valley, through forests and winding canyons surrounded by the Cascade Mountains. Highlights of the journey include the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate in the Fraser Canyon and the steep slopes of the Thompson river. Marvel at the scenery as you settle in for a good night’s sleep in Kamloops before boarding the Rocky Mountaineer for day two.
As you disembark the Rocky Mountaineer you are greeted by one of Canada’s largest cities, Calgary. Calgary is famed for being one Canada’s most popular ski spots, and for hosting the 1988 winter Olympics, but there is a lot more to this city than sports and slopes. You can relieve the former Wild West glory days at Heritage Park or indulge in a little retail therapy along Stephen Avenue Walk, or perhaps take a walk on the wild side and visit Calgary Zoo.
Return to your hotel, which is the perfect blend of elegance comfort and style to rest after your Calgary adventures. Finally venture back to the airport where you will depart the beautiful lands of Canada and dream about your next adventure.
