Since you’re taking a particularly long flight to the opposite end of the world, why not go one step further and hit three birds with one stone? The picturesque Rockies, a rugged coastline and a luxurious cruise – this new exploration experience offered by Globus has it all. So much so that you’re sure to experience a sensory overload of nature’s panoramic showstoppers, cuisine delights and never-to-be repeated experiences.
New in 2015, Globus passengers can explore unparalleled scenery aboard Rocky Mountaineer, travelling to the maritime city of Seattle. Travellers begin their Globus exploration in Alberta, the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, travelling north to Lake Louise, the Columbian Icefield and Jasper, where wildlife abounds and mountains pierce the skies. The trip then takes a turn south through Yoho National Park to Banff, Canada’s oldest national park, where you board the Rocky Mountaineer for a two-day journey which carves its way through mountains and valleys to the seaside city of Vancouver.
You can choose to make the most of the stunning city of Vancouver any way you wish, with two nights to spend in one of the world’s most liveable cities, before again boarding the Rocky Mountaineer. Travelling southbound to Seattle, you’ll have a free day at leisure to explore this superb city, its bustling and incredibly famous Pike Place Market, the Space Needle or the artisan space in Chihuly Gardens and Glass. From Seattle you’ll embark on an Alaska inside passage cruise which returns to Seattle, and gives you the chance to extend your stay.
