As part of our Canada and Alaska tours you can journey through the western reaches of Canada and see some of the most dramatic landscapes and untouched wildlife in the northern hemisphere. Explore the abundant nature, culture and tradition of historic British Columbia, meet a Canadian Mountie, natives of the aboriginal Shuswap Nation, and take a horse-drawn carriage ride through Victoria. Relax to the railway rhythm of the world-famous Rocky Mountaineer, one of the most luxurious ways to see the majestic, snow-capped Rocky Mountains and see glaciers of Roger’s Pass.
Enjoy the vibrant charms of Vancouver and embark upon an unforgettable Alaskan cruise, spotting orcas, humpback whales and even bald eagles along the way. On your Canada and Alaska tour, you will stay in many iconic Fairmont Hotels, including the Fairmont Banff Springs - a castle amidst the dense Canadian forest and enjoy the spectacular views from the comfort of the Fairmont Château Lake Louise, high in the Rocky Mountains.
Our fully-inclusive approach to touring in Canada and Alaska means we include pretty much everything in the price of the holiday; all breakfasts and a variety of meals, great accommodation and hotel porterage throughout. And of course all spectacular and exclusive experiences in amazing locations along the way.
Our Canada and Alaska tours are packed with a range of unforgettable experiences, many of which are exclusive to Scenic Tours: from a profound insight into the life of Black Bears in the Canadian Rockies, presented by Michael Allen, to activities that are included in our Scenic FreeChoice programme, such as a scenic floatplane flight over beautiful Vancouver Island.
In addition to these many remarkable experiences, our Scenic Enrich programme offers an exclusive range of additional activities that take our guests one step further, and enable them to experience a destination in a spectacular fashion or to truly immerse themselves in unique local cultures and to be part of the experience rather than simply being an observer.
Free to choose at no extra cost
In addition to everything that is included in the price of a Scenic Tours holiday, we offer guests the opportunity to tailor their touring experience to suit their personal preferences - at no extra cost.
Scenic Enrich is a range of truly exceptional activities, all of which are included in the price of a Scenic Tours holiday. This programme enables guests to experience a destination in the most spectacular fashion imaginable, or immerses them in local culture, rather than simply observing like a passer-by. Many Scenic Enrich experiences are exclusive to guests of Scenic Tours.
At Scenic Tours we have an appetite for the spectacular, as our guests discover as they take the Rocky Mountaineer on ‘one of the world’s greatest trips’. This great North American locomotive takes guests through the stunning landscapes of British Columbia, Alberta and the extraordinary spectacle of the Canadian Rockies.
The quality of cuisine throughout a Scenic Tours holiday is always of the highest calibre, but there are a number of opportunities for guests to enjoy a culinary experience that will enliven all the senses. In the Canadian Rockies guests experience an authentic taste of local entertainment and hospitality at the ‘Rocky Mountain Round Up’.
Between the entertainment and dancing, our guests are treated to a mouthwatering buffet barbecue. It features, among other specialities, a roasted hip of Alberta beef of such proportions that it has to be carried in on a pitchfork. This serves as the centrepiece of the feast, and is supplemented by an abundance of delicious, traditional western fare.
Scenic Tours and Fairmont Hotels and Resorts have forged a unique relationship, the cornerstone of which is the mutual delivery of exceptional quality and service.

Fantastic cuisine is an integral part of any great holiday, and at Scenic Tours we aim to provide an array of culinary experiences and gourmet delights. We include an extensive selection of meals during our tours, and great attention to detail is devoted to the variety and quality of our cuisine.
Accommodation with Scenic Tours is always of the highest calibre, and always in a great location in each destination. Our expert team has researched all our destinations in comprehensive detail to ensure we provide luxurious accommodation when available, and accommodation of the highest possible standard in destinations where hotel options are more limited.
Some of the hotels we have picked are in the heart of cities, while others are secluded resort properties surrounded by stunning scenery. Either way, we ensure our guests are perfectly placed to explore the local area, and also to relax and completely unwind.
When travelling with Scenic Tours, a large selection of meals are included in the overall price of a holiday, so guests do not need to be concerned with spiralling restaurant bills while they are away. Our guests start every day with a full buffet breakfast, featuring several hot selections, and many lunches and dinners are also included on our tours.
A selection of highlight meals feature on all Scenic Tours itineraries in Canada and Alaska. These are dining experiences not to be missed; on some occasions this is due to a restaurant’s exceptional setting, sometimes because of its local specialities, or at other times simply because of a restaurant’s first class cuisine.
