Home to diverse wildlife—orca, mountain goats, bald eagles, bears, puffins, sea otters and more—the complex labyrinth of fjords and bays are where whales and sea lions find refuge during the summer months. You’ll never forget the sight of 40-ton whales hurling themselves into the air, almost completely escaping the water.

Fantastic Canadian adventure expertly arranged by Anne. We started our journey in Glasgow, flying club class to London then on to Calgary, we had 4 days there and attended the marvellous Stampede. We actually got it dry!! From there we were taken by Brewster Travel to Banff, Lake Louise, and Banff(stopping at Bow summit, Columbia Icefields, and Athabasca falls) before joining the Rocky Mountaineer Train to Kamloops then on to Vancouver. We had a couple of nights there before taking the coach and ferry across to Victoria, where we visited the amazing Butchart Gardens. On our return to Vancouver by sea plane we then went on the Celebrity Infinity to Alaska which was incredible. then flew club class back to London/Glasgow. All our transfers were extremely smooth with no delays and hotels were 1st class. Would definitely recommend Canada Travel Specialists to anyone wishing to visit this amazing country.
