you must see it once in your lifetime
We explore Canada's Rockies differently. Regular tours generally only visit the southern part of the famous mountain chain which is often filled with tourists. Our approach is to travel slightly off the beaten path, first heading north onto Vancouver Island, traveling along the fabled Inside Passage to northern British Columbia crossing the coastal mountains and the Rockies by rail. This is a unique experience filled with nature, wilderness and majestic scenery. We also highlight the amazing native cultures along the way.
the Wild West...
There are few places on earth as beautiful as the western United States. We focus on natural beauty, wide open spaces and astoundingly unique scenery. Visit the California Coast, The Pacific Northwest, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico. The American west is home to some of the world's most famous national parks.
