The east coast of Canada is the place to go if you want to experience the heart of the country’s French-Canadian culture. The city of Montreal is unique, with its blend of European and North American influences and its thriving arts and cultural scene. One of the best ways to travel there is via a genteel cruise of the Saguenay River and Canadian east coast.
If it’s snow-capped mountains, crystal-clear streams and wide open spaces you’re looking for, travel to the Canadian Rockies in Alberta. The small towns of Jasper and Kamloops are ideal bases for exploring this spectacular wilderness area, and both are located on a rail route traversed by the famous Rocky Mountaineer train.
The West Coast of Canada has a gentle charm all of its own. The pine forests of British Columbia stretch all the way to the Pacific coast, where you’ll find the laid-back city of Vancouver. From Vancouver, you can embark on a cruise of the Inside Passage, and travel north towards Alaska to view glaciers, indigenous wildlife and the haunting Northern Lights.
