Every year in the northern spring, Cathie Rice Travel escorts a group tour and cruise to beautiful Canada and Alaska. This is a perfect time of year to travel – the days are crisp, there is still snow on the mountains, and the bears and other wildlife are coming out of hibernation. This ever popular fully guided holiday is in its 19th year, and the 2018 departs on Thursday 10 May 2018.
Glaciers, lakes and green forests combine to create a pristine experience that captures the beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Exploring western Canada on the private Insight Vacations tour means guests travel in comfort and style, staying in first class hotels in the best city and national park locations. The tour also includes three nights in Victoria, on Vancouver Island, visiting the world famous Butchart Gardens – at this time of year, the Gardens are bursting with colour.
Guests enjoy a night in Anchorage, Alaska, before boarding the Alaska Railroad train for a scenic rail journey through snow-topped mountains and along the magnificent Alaskan coast to Seward. Here the group meets Silversea ship Silver Shadow for an unforgettable seven night cruise through Alaska’s Inside Passage. Silver Shadow is a small cruise ship, taking just 382 guests, and dedicated to providing the ultimate in luxury travel. All staterooms are ocean view suite accommodation with butler service for every suite. Complimentary beverages are included, and the in-suite bar and refrigerator is stocked with each guest’s beverage preferences.
Spectacular scenic cruising highlights each memorable day in Alaska. Travellers visit charming coastal towns born of the gold rush, see magnificent ice-blue glaciers and amazing wildlife, and enjoy the accommodation, entertainment and facilities of their luxury home at sea.
The tour cost includes flights with Cathay Pacific Airways, and a stopover with accommodation in Hong Kong in each direction.
Return coach transfers from central points in Bunbury, Busselton and Mandurah to Perth International Airport are included for southwest guests travelling on group flights.
Cathie Rice Travel offers a roommate matching service for solo travellers who would like to share a room with another traveller of the same sex to avoid the single supplement.
