Western Canada Self Drives

Our Western Canada self-drives pair the beauty of BC with the allure of Alberta, allowing you to explore the wide-open road at entirely your own pace. Combining the abundant wildlife of Vancouver Island, fascinating Indigenous communities of coastal British Columbia and breathtaking beauty of the Canadian Rockies, add a rail portion to the drive to get the best of both worlds.

Luxury Lodges & Resorts

In Canada, five-star hotels can be found in the middle of the mountains, private helicopter tours can take you to untouched peaks and floating lodges can host you moments from the wild. Whether you want to go glamping in a biosphere reserve, stay at an eco-cultural floating lodge or learn the way of the land at a ranch, our luxury lodges and resorts are more than worth the trip.

Private Shore Excursions

Enjoy the intimacy and bonding time that comes with our private shore excursions in Alaska, be it paddling around icebergs by kayak, taking in views of Denali from a small plane, riding Alaska Railroad to a glacier or digging into authentic local cuisine. From nature and wildlife to restaurants and breweries, these tours are perfect for small groups or families who want a little extra space.

From grizzly bears to polar bears and BC rainforest to arctic tundra, bear viewing in Canada is better than most other countries in the world. Get up close and personal with these unique creatures on their turf – from staying at family-owned floating lodges to trekking with experienced and knowledgeable guides, you’ll feel entirely at ease with wild bears just feet from where you stand.

Whale Watching

The protected waters and passageways of coastal British Columbia have long been a haven for whales, making it an ideal destination for whale watching in Canada. Witness resident orca pods feeding at the surface and migratory humpback whales passing by in endless groups. Should you travel to Churchill, Manitoba, there are even more opportunities to see humpbacks and belugas.
