Canada covers a vast area and its west coast is a superb option for a luxury family or couples adventure holiday, especially for travellers who are at their happiest enjoying the great outdoors, wildlife encounters and fun activities amongst stunning scenery, with the opportunity to include a little urban city glamour, if that might appeal.
A great way to see the western side of the country, within a relatively short space of time, is by luxurious train journey and if you yearn to discover the Rocky Mountains in complete luxury and comfort, may we suggest the Rocky Mountaineer train that meanders its way around pine trees and glaciers, through wide-open valleys and along crystal-clear, aquamarine-coloured rivers? Itineraries vary, and as there is no guest accommodation on board, your itinerary allows for a few days spent residing in a handpicked selection of our featured luxury resorts and hotels in destinations such as Banff, Lake Louise, Whistler and Vancouver, with plenty of time to get out to discover the nuances and charms of each location before moving on to your next stop.
Alternatively, families or couples with an adventurous spirit will be thrilled with our tailor-made eco-adventure journey, The Best of West Canada. Staying in the finest luxury lodges and with programmes packed full of exciting animal-spotting excursions and wilderness activities in remote locations, this action-packed itinerary takes pioneering travellers from Whistler to Vancouver Island, before finishing in cosmopolitan Vancouver. If you would rather combine the sweeping beaches and rocky headlines of Vancouver Island with the secluded luxurious natural paradise of Sonora Island, see our Canadian Wilderness Adventure itinerary for some inspiration.
By contrast, you might like to enjoy a luxury cruise with our Adventure in Alaska and Canada with Regent Seven Seas and Fairmont Hotels. Starting on the buzzing coast of Vancouver, join the Seven Seas Mariner for a seven-day ocean cruise around the spectacular scenes of Alaska, with towering glaciers, cascading waterfalls and fascinating historic ports. After returning to land, head to the heart of the Rocky Mountains and witness the abundant wildlife of Jasper, marvel at the stunning landscape of Lake Louise and finish off at the beautiful Banff National Park.
