ITINERARY

Day 1: Australia – airplane-takeoff – Calgary

Fly out to Calgary from Australia. You will be met upon arrival and assisted with the 
transfer to your hotel. Tonight, your Webjet tour guide will welcome you to Canada. 
Alberta’s landscape encompasses mountains, prairies, desert badlands and vast coniferous 
forests. It has more than 600 lakes, and rich mineral deposits. In the west, the Canadian 
Rocky Mountain Parks have glaciers in the Columbia Icefields. The Waterton Glacier 
International Peace Park is a biosphere reserve that straddles the southern border with the 
USA.
For those purchasing the Tour Only option, your tour starts today. Please make your own way 
to the hotel.

Day 2: Calgary – Lake Louise – Banff – Canmore (B)

After breakfast, the group begins journeying into the Canadian Rockies. The first 
destination today is the ‘Diamond in the Wilderness’, otherwise known as Lake Louise. There 
is time to stroll the foreshore and take in the emerald waters and towering mountains. 
Enroute to Lake Louise is a stop at the equally stunning Lake Moraine.
The tour continues its travels through the Rocky Mountains, later arriving in Banff. Banff 
is one of the most visited mountain towns in the region and is recognisable for its 
backdrop of Mt. Rundle and Mt. Cascade. Spend some time acquainting yourself with Banff’s 
cityscape. The group moves to Canmore for the overnight stay.  

Day 3: Canmore – Columbia Icefields – Canmore (B)

Venture towards the ‘Icefields Parkway’ today for an exciting excursion atop the Athabasca 
Glacier. Travelling the Icefields Parkway means traversing through the heart of the UNESCO 
World Heritage Site-listed Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, through vast and pristine 
wilderness; along dazzling mountain lakes and ancient glaciers. The destination for today’s 
excursion is the Columbia Icefield, the largest of its kind in the Rocky Mountains. 
Optional Tour: Athabasca Glacier by Ice Explorer
This tour takes travellers right onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier, courtesy of Ice 
Explorer, a massive vehicle specially designed for glacial travel. An experienced driver-
guide will share their bounty of knowledge about glaciers, icefields and their impact on 
the environment. Please note that this optional extra must be booked prior to departure 
from Australia. Additional cost applies. 

Day 4: Canmore – Yoho National Park – Glacier National Park – Revelstoke National Park (B)

On today’s itinerary is a sightseeing transfer to Revelstoke. Along the way are stops at 
Yoho, Glacier and Mount Revelstoke National Parks. There may also be time to check out 
Emerald Lake, Natural Bridge, the Spiral Train Tunnels and Rogers Pass. 

Day 5: Revelstoke – Kamloops (B)

You have this morning as leisure time. Choose to join the optional excursion or explore 
Revelstoke at your own pace. The group reconvenes and departs around midday for Kamloops; a 
route that includes stops at Craigellachie and Shuswap Lake. 

Optional: 3 Valley Gap Heritage Ghost Town
This excursion gives visitors the chance to delve into pioneer era of the late 1800s. 
Fortune-seekers flocked to this region upon the discovery of gold, yet the rush was short-
lived, and the ensuing exodus resulted in many abandoned settlements. This visit to 3 Gap 
Valley Heritage Ghost Town sees you encounter more than 25 historic structures, as well as 
a museum. Entry to the site is purchased upon arrival.

Day 6: Kamloops – Whistler (B) 

The tour continues the drive west from Kamloops along the shore of Kamloops Lake to reach 
Cache Creek. It is then on to Lillooet, which was once Mile 0 of the Gold Rush Trail. 
Travel the view-lined and winding Duffey Lake Road, which snakes into ranch country around 
Pemberton. It is the only a short drive to Whistler, the location of tonight’s stay. 
Whistler welcomes more than two million people every year; a testament to this mountain 
town’s year-round appeal. Many come during winter for skiing and snowboarding, although 
Whistler also promised excellent mountain-biking opportunities in summer. Those with a nose 
for design will appreciate Whistler’s pedestrian-only town centre: it was intended to blend 
seamlessly with the natural environment. You may also spot one of Whistler’s furrier locals 
(bears) while here. 

Day 7: Whistler (B) 

There is a whole day of leisure time to get to know Whistler. 

Day 8: Whistler – Vancouver (B) 

Follow the Sea to Sky Highway along Howe Sound towards Vancouver, travelling through 
Squamish and Britannia Beach enroute. Some highlights of this drive include Shannon Falls 
and the Stawamanus Chief, the second-largest standing piece of granite in the world. Arrive 
in Vancouver and set out on a half-day sightseeing tour of the city. This trip drives you 
around Stanley Park to stop at the Totem Poles and Prospect Point. Then move to Chinatown 
and Dr Sun Yat-Sen Park, before seeing the Steam Clock in Gaston and then Public Market on 
Granville Island. The remainder of the day is free time.  

Day 9: Vancouver – embark on Royal Caribbean Serenade of the Seas cruise (B,D)

A private coach fetches you from the hotel and whisks you to the Vancouver cruise port 
where you will join your Royal Caribbean cruise of the Inside Passage. After check-in, 
settle into your cabin, kick back and maybe head out onto the decks to discover everything 
the ship has to offer.

Day 10: Inside Passage (cruising) (B,L,D)


The Inside Passage is a glorious embodiment of Alaska’s pristine and rugged wilderness. 
Here, you will see low-hanging mist, magnificent fjords and elegant glaciers – all making 
for one extraordinary photography opportunity.  

Day 11: Ketchikan, Alaska (B,L,D) 


Ketchikan is a launching pad for seeing Misty Fjords National Monument; an area boasting 
landscapes and dramatic seascapes that only be reached by plane or boat. This former 
frontier city is also known as the salmon capital of the world and is home to sports 
fishing opportunities plus collections of Tlingit-carved totem poles. 

Day 12: Juneau(B,L,D) 

Today’s port is Juneau. The sprawling Alaskan capital city is fringed by fjords, forest and 
snow-capped peaks. It also has an interesting gold rush history; visitors can still pan for 
gold. 

Day 13: Skagway, Alaska (B,L,D)


The Serenade of the Seas docks in Skagway, another of Alaska’s important former gold rush 
and frontier towns. Skagway was inundated with gold-hunters bound for the Dawson Gold 
Fields in the Yukon Territory and quickly became known for its bawdy way of life. The 
spirit of the gold rush era lives on today, thanks to restored buildings and the historic 
railway. A trip on the train offers a glimpse at the 1898 fortune-seekers once had to brave 
on foot in order to reach the gold fields. 

Day 14: Tracy Arm Fjord cruising, Alaska (B,L,D) 

The Tracy Arm Fjord is located just south of Juneau and is the result of glacier activity. 
The fjord is more than 30 miles long and features looming granite walls dotted with 
waterfalls.  

Day 15: Scenic Cruising (B,L,D) 

The Serenade of the Seas sets out on the return voyage to Vancouver and the whole day is 
spent at sea. Use this time to make the most of the ship’s exceptional facilities, from an 
adults-only Solarium, a rock climbing wall, bars and lounges, swimming pools, spa and 
fitness centre, and stage performances.

Day 16: Disembark cruise Vancouver– airplane-takeoff– Australia (B)

The ship arrives in Vancouver and it is time to disembark. You have the rest of the day at 
your leisure and then must make your own way to the airport to board your return flight to 
Australia.

For those purchasing the Tour Only option, at the appropriate time please make your own way 
from the cruise terminal to your next travel arrangements.
