Touring Canada and Alaska

Kathryn Watson of TravelManager says that you will be welcomed to a world of towering mountain peaks, lush green forests, iceberg alleys, cobblestoned cities, and red deserts when you travel with APT on a ‘Canada & Alaska featuring USA’ journey.

This season APT has introduced a new travel style in Canada and Alaska with a range of ‘luxury small ship and expedition cruising’ itineraries. Kathryn says that you can get close to the action along the Inside Passage aboard a luxury small ship, making it a style of touring that is well suited to those hoping to make discoveries and gain insights on an in-depth, enlightening discovery tour of Canada and Alaska.

She says that the famous Rockies mountain range is best seen aboard the Rocky Mountaineer from a GoldLeaf glass-domed carriage, and recommends taking one of what APT call their exclusive and unique Signature Experiences, such as meeting a mountie or spotting bears on a river safari.

Another possibility is an Alaska Inside Passage Cruise with APT aboard a Holland America Line or Princess Cruises ship – you’ll stay in a guaranteed Verandah Stateroom as snow-capped mountains, hulking glaciers and historical harbourside towns glide past as your ship slices the glassy surface of the Inside Passage. 2019 ‘Earlybird specials’ are available now for a limited time only.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
