Explore the best of Canada’s Western Wilderness
From the iconic Rockies to waking up to the breathtaking sight of the Glacier Bay, we share six ways to explore the wildlife and wonders of Western Canada and Alaska with an exclusive deal for WYZA subscribers.
The enchanting Rockies
Sit back and relax while you soak up stunning scenery aboard the Rocky Mountaineer. This rail journey is a must when visiting the Canadian Rockies.
You can enjoy the SilverLeaf service with Travelmarvel tours where the rail journey takes you passed spellbinding Spiral Tunnels and the impressive Kicking Horse Canyon before arriving in Banff National Park.
Banff National Park
Located in Alberta’s Rockies, Banff National Park offers a number of fun ways to take in the resort town’s incredible scenery. Embark on a Bow River float trip, try a Voyageur Canoe Tour, plan a Golf Cart Tour, or simply go on a group hike – what better way to enjoy the surrounds of the beautiful outdoors?
And perhaps for a more select experience, you can join a heli-flight for awe-inspiring aerial views of the Canadian Rockies. You may need to splash some extra cash but it’s definitely a experience to remember for all time.
Brewster Glacier Ice Explorer
For a glacier adventure, Travelmarvel can take you on a thrilling trip inside a massive all-terrain Ice Explorer which drives you onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier.
It’s located at the heart of the incredible Icefields Parkway of Alberta, Canada where it is one of the largest non-polar ice fields in the world!
Along the journey your driver guide shares a wealth of information and you are even invited to step out onto the glacier where you’ll feel closely connected with the breathtaking natural surrounds of Canada’s west. It’s a definite sightseeing highlight!
Bring out your cameras for an unparalleled sight nestled in the heart of the magnificent Canadian Rockies.
It’s no wonder Lake Louise is world famous! Coined as the ‘Jewel of the Rockies’, the lake is renowned for its turquoise water, which is best seen from late June to early September. However, the area is also popular to visit during winter, where it becomes a great place for skiing.
As part of Travelmarvel tours, you can settle into the famous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and relax in spectacular surrounds. If you plan to hike, there are many short and long trails in the Lake Louise area.
Blue River Safari
Hoping for an exhilarating encounter in the wild? Select Travelmarvel tours can set you off on a River Safari to Grizzly Bear Valley, where you will venture through rustic moutainscapes and jade-coloured riverbanks in search of spectacular flora and fauna, including moose, eagles, osprey and, of course, bears!
The inland temperate rainforest is located in the Monashee Mountains of British Columbia and perfect for nature and wildlife enthusiasts. You can combine your hour on the river with a Jeep adventure for a Super Safari!
Glacier Bay Cruise
Many of the Travelmarvel Canada cruise trips will also take you to the majestic scenery of Alaska where you will be able to sample a bit of wild America.
The Glacier Bay Cruise takes you through the Southeast of Alaska’s Inside Passage and past rocky headlands while local rangers share their knowledge about the geological wonders and diverse wildlife of this incredible region.
Travelling over the waters of the 25-milion acre World Heritage-listed Glacier Bay National Park, the area is home to wild coastlines, rugged mountains and glacial fjords. Keep an eye out for icebergs and glaciers and scan the shorelines for wildlife that includes sea lions, bald eagles and brown bears!
