Sailing from Canada
Before you board
Rocky Mountaineer journey
On arrival in Calgary you'll be transferred to the Fairmont Palliser Hotel for an overnight stay, with tickets to the Calgary Tower included. The following day enjoy a full day of sightseeing on the way to Banff, where you'll check into the Rimrock Hotel for a two night stay. Spend day three exploring Banff National Park, then board the Rocky Mountaineer on day four for a wonderful train journey through the mountains, staying overnight in Kamloops en route. You'll enjoy GoldLeaf service and spectacular views, before arriving in Vancouver for a two night stay at the Fairmont Waterfront hotel, with a city tour included. Finally, transfer to the ship to begin your 7-night Alaska cruise.
Setting sail from Vancouver
Cosmopolitan Vancouver is a city that rewards exploration, an eminently liveable place and an easy gateway to the natural beauty of British Columbia. The culinary scene here is a particular draw, with seafood galore and some fantastic Asian restaurants.
United States: Ketchikan
Ketchikan is a great introduction to Alaska’s natural attractions, situated at the foot of towering Deer Mountain and within easy reach of the Misty Fjords. The colourful wooden buildings of Creek Street, the old red light district, are a reminder of Ketchikan’s former status as a rough and ready frontier town; these days, things are rather more civilised!
United States: Juneau
Alaska's state capital is isolated and remote, accessible only by plane or by boat thanks to its dramatic hillside location. The wild hinterland is thick with forest, sculpted by the glaciers of the Juneau Ice Field, while down at the water's edge the harbour bustles with fishing boats and seaplanes.
United States: Skagway
Situated at the northern end of the Inside Passage, Skagway is an impressively well preserved former gold rush town, with a charming historic centre that’s easy to explore on foot. Popular activities include hiking to the pristine Lower Dewey Lake and the scenic train ride along the old gold rush route.
United States: Hoonah
United States: Hubbard Glacier
Arriving in Seward
The tiny city of Seward, home to just 3,000 people, enjoys a spectacular setting on the edge of Resurrection Bay, on Alaska's southern coast. Surrounded by the mountains and forests of the Kenai Fjords National Park, it's a great base for exploring the Harding Ice Field and the stunning scenery of the Kenai Peninsula. It's also a hub for activities including sea kayaking, birding and whale watching, and has a pleasant downtown area with plenty of shops and good quality restaurants. If you have time, the excellent Alaska Sealife Centre is also well worth a visit.
The train journey between Seward and Anchorage is a must.

Tailor-make your trip
Our favourite hotel in Vancouver
If you’re not committed to the waterfront where the ships come in, we love the Rosewood Hotel Georgia.
Stay a little longer in Canada
If you’ve time, set aside a couple of days to travel to Knight Inlet Lodge for bear viewing.
Where to stay in Seward
If you’re here, you’re probably not stopping long. You get a better choice of hotels in nearby Anchorage.
What to do around Seward
Go kayaking if you can – once you are away from the noise of engines and people, the peace is amazing.
