Boasting stunning views of the North Shore Mountains, Stanley Park and central downtown Vancouver, guests can admire the sweeping vistas, through their floor-to-ceiling windows in the comfort of their elegant rooms, or take to the roof and enjoy a stunning pool perspective.

Recently transformed with a décor of cream and earthy tones, each of the 489 guest rooms now include a luxurious rain spa shower, with Le Labo bathroom amenities, wireless internet, flat-screen television, pillow-top bed and multi-media connection hub. The enhanced upper 8th and 9th floors, house the coveted Fairmont Gold rooms and suites that offer sumptuous furnishings with fabulous harbour views, plus a host of additional privileges for guests.

Guests will also adore the hotel's latest dining venue - ARC.

Seven Seas Mariner

+

Spend seven nights, in style, on board the Seven Seas Mariner cruising Alaska.

Day 1 – Spend the day at sea, cruising the Hubbard Glacier, North America’s largest tidal glacier and a truly astonishing blue-hued, natural wonder. Snow-capped mountains surround the bay and merely add to the immense panorama that you’ll have the privilege of viewing, along with the potential to see wildlife such as whales, seals, brown bears and an array of seabirds. Most exciting is the prospect of observing an ice carving – the creation of an iceberg as a huge chunk of ice breaks off the edge of the glacier.

Day 2 – By 9am the next day, you should have arrived at Sitka, which was founded by Russian fur traders in 1799. It’s a picturesque port of call, most famous for its fishing industry, and there are a number of activities that can be enjoyed, including hiking, sea-kayaking, salmon fishing and forest walking.

Day 3 – Today, you’ll be cruising the picturesque Tracy Arm Fjord and Sawyer Glaciers heading towards your next port of call, Juneau. The fjord has been carved out of granite over thousands of years and its mountaintops provide a spectacular jump off point for cascades of icy waterfalls. At the head of the fjord are two glaciers that are home to abundant wildlife, including bears, deer, wolves, seals and Arctic Terns. By 1pm, you’ll have arrived at Juneau and will spend the afternoon and evening here, exploring a beautiful location made famous by gold mining in the 1880s. Whilst here, you can enjoy excursions including dog sledding, panning for gold, whale-watching, guided hiking or a guided, culinary-themed exploration of Juneau, visiting an Alaskan brewery and cookery school.

Day 4 – Skagway grew as a result of the Klondike Gold Rush in 1898 and is where you’ll spend time until mid-afternoon. Evocative of that famous era in American history, the town retains its links to its gold mining past with beautifully preserved buildings set amongst a backdrop of spectacular mountains. There’s plenty to do while here, including a rainforest bike excursion, riding on the scenic railroad train and enjoying historical walking tours.

Day 5 – Heading south, today’s port of call is Ketchikan, where you’ll spend the afternoon. Exhibiting a strong native American culture, this thriving little town survived because of its cannery and sawmill industries and was once known as the ‘Salmon Capital of the World’. It has a strong artistic personality, too, so expect to see totem poles and native art galore. Whilst here, you can explore the famous Misty Fjords, view bears on a seaplane excursion to Prince of Wales Island, enjoy wilderness fishing with a guide or take part in a guided, two-mile rainforest hike, where you may be able to see Bald Eagles – maybe even a bear or two if you are lucky!

Day 6 – The final leg of your cruise takes you right through the Inside Passage, a world-famous coastal route of immense beauty, where a backdrop of snow-covered mountains gives way to dense forests of cedar trees that meet the icy-clear waters. Spend the day taking copious photographs as you enjoy the majestic scenery.

Day 7 – This morning, you’ll be disembarking Seven Seas Mariner in Vancouver, and making the short journey across the terminal to The Fairmont Waterfront, where you will be staying for the next two nights.

Rocky Mountaineer, luxury rail journey to Jasper

Your post-cruise tour sees you embarking the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer GoldLeaf carriage, which will be making its way to Kamloops.

As you make your ascent towards the Continental Divide, you’ll reach Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, see the dramatic Pyramid Falls and eventually reach Jasper National Park, arriving in the town of Jasper in the late afternoon, where you’ll conclude your rail adventure and spend two nights at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge.

During your journey, you’ll visit Columbia Icefield and there will be time for an Ice Explorer ride on Athabasca Glacier, followed by an opportunity to visit the award-winning Glacier Skywalk, set 280 metres above stunning valleys and gushing waterfalls (both attractions are included as part of your itinerary). Later on, you’ll experience the immense beauty of Bow Lake and Peyto Lake, the Crowfoot Glacier and the majestic Athabasca Falls, and are sure to come across the park’s native wildlife along the way, which may include bears, elk, moose and mountain sheep.
