Embrace the great outdoors on a package combining one of Canada’s most incredible cities with a cruise to Alaska. Your holiday starts with a three-night stay in the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver. Backed by the Rocky Mountains to the north and east, and the vast Pacific Ocean to the west, the city is surrounded by natural beauty. You’ll have ample time to see what makes Vancouver so special, including on a tour of its highlights, before boarding Nieuw Amsterdam for an Alaskan cruise adventure. Glide through serene waters, get up close to impressive glaciers and visit the quaint coastal towns that are sprinkled along the Alaskan seaboard.
Head out into Canada’s endless backyard with this day trip to the Peak of Vancouver, Grouse Mountain and the Capilano Suspension Bridge and Park. Cross Lions Gate Bridge and head into the North Shore Mountains. Your first stop is the Capilano Suspension Bridge and Park, home to the world’s longest suspension footbridge, which hangs 70 metres above a spectacular river canyon and the tops of lofty Douglas firs.
Elsewhere, the Treetop Adventure is a series of smaller suspension bridges, while a new Cliffwalk attraction lets you ‘hang out’ over the Capilano Canyon itself. The walkway hugs the cliff face, offering 360° views of the gorge below. Delve deeper into the rainforest to the Capilano Salmon Hatchery and learn about the lifecycle of the West Coast salmon. In season you can even see them battling upstream to spawn.
Your final destination is Grouse Mountain. Take the Skyride up above the clouds to the top of the mountain, 3800 feet above the city of Vancouver, wander the trails and drink up the view. If you’re lucky you might catch one of the seasonal events, such as lumberjack shows, sleigh rides or ice-skating.
