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.
