Day by day itinerary

Day 1 to 2 — UK to Vancouver
Tofino, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Tofino, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Fly to Vancouver and arrive the same day in the early afternoon. Upon arrival, take your included private transfer to your hotel, the Fairmont Waterfront, for a two night stay on a room-only basis. Enjoy your time at leisure or contact us for private touring arrangements.

Vancouver is a delicious juxtaposition of urban sophistication and on-your-doorstep wilderness adventure. The mountains and seascape make the city an outdoor playground for hiking, skiing, kayaking, cycling, and sailing—and so much more—while the cuisine and arts scenes are equally diverse, reflecting the makeup of Vancouver's ethnic (predominantly Asian) mosaic. Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the world's most livable cities, and it's easy for visitors to see why. It's beautiful, it's outdoorsy, and there's a laidback West Coast vibe.

Day 3 — Vancouver
Tofino, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Tofino, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Check out of the hotel and make your way to the ship located across the street at the cruise ship terminal. Embark Silver Muse and sail at 6.00 pm

Day 4 — Cruising The Inside Passage

If it is drama that you are after, then you certainly need look no further that the dramatic beauty of the Inside Passage. With isolated communities nestling in shoreside villages, mountains rising from the tidal waters, seals basking on ice floes and massive glaciers calving with a thunderous snap in the distance, this stretch of water is quite unique. Named after early explorers who were looking for the Northwest Passage (found much further north), cruising the Inside Passage has become a must for any sailing aficionado.

Day 5 — Ketchikan, Alaska
Port of Call, Ketchikan, Alaska

Port of Call, Ketchikan, Alaska

Ketchikan is famous for its colorful totem poles, rainy skies, steep–as–San Francisco streets, and lush island setting. Some 13,500 people call the town home, and, in the summer, cruise ships crowd the shoreline, floatplanes depart noisily for Misty Fiords National Monument, and salmon-laden commercial fishing boats motor through Tongass Narrows. In the last decade Ketchikan's rowdy, blue-collar heritage of logging and fishing has been softened by the loss of many timber-industry jobs and the dramatic rise of cruise-ship tourism.

Day 6 — Sitka, Alaska
Sitka, Alaska

Sitka, Alaska

It's hard not to like Sitka, with its eclectic blend of Alaska Native, Russian, and American history and its dramatic and beautiful open-ocean setting. This is one of the best Inside Passage towns to explore on foot, with such sights as St. Michael's Cathedral, Sheldon Jackson Museum, Castle Hill, Sitka National Historical Park, and the Alaska Raptor Center topping the town's must-see list.

Day 7 — Haines, Alaska

Unlike most cities of Southeast Alaska, Haines can be reached by road. With a population of 2,200, Haines lies in the upper northern reaches of the Inside Passage and is an important access point to the Yukon Territory and Interior Alaska. While cruising into Haines, see the Lynn Canal, the longest and deepest fjord in North America. Once in town, mountains seem to surround you on all sides while the jagged cathedral peaks of the Chilkat Mountains loom over Fort Seward. Haines has two distinct personalities.

Day 8 — Juneau, Alaska

Juneau, Alaska's capital and third-largest city, is on the North American mainland but can't be reached by road. The city owes its origins to two colorful sourdoughs (Alaskan pioneers)—Joe Juneau and Richard Harris—and to a Tlingit chief named Kowee, who led the two men to rich reserves of gold at Snow Slide Gulch, the drainage of Gold Creek around which the town was eventually built. That was in 1880, and shortly thereafter a modest stampede resulted in the formation of a mining camp, which quickly grew to become the Alaska district government capital in 1906.

Day 9 — Wrangell, Alaska

A small, unassuming timber and fishing community, Wrangell sits on the northern tip of Wrangell Island, near the mouth of the fast-flowing Stikine River—North America's largest undammed river. The Stikine plays a large role in the life of many Wrangell residents, including those who grew up homesteading on the islands that pepper the area. Trips on the river with local guides are highly recommended as they provide, basically, an insider's guide to the Stikine and a very Alaskan way of life. Like much of Southeast, Wrangell has suffered in recent years from a declining resource-based economy.

Day 10 — Walker Cove, Alaska and Rudyerd Bay (Misty Fjords)

Walker Cove, located just 41.8 miles from Ketchikan, extends about 8.5 miles into the mainland. The scenery is stunning with towering rock walls on both side and hundreds of waterfalls plunging down into the fjord. There is always the possibility of seeing bears, Harbour Seals Bald Eagles along the shoreline. The British explorer George Vancouver noted this bay on his chart in 1793, although there was no mention of it in his log. It was named after Dr. William Walker, the physician on board the HMS Chatham.

Rudyerd Bay is one of the highlights of the Misty Fiords, 40 miles east of Ketchikan, along the Inside Passage. This fjord cuts through steep-sided mountainous terrain and extends far into the mainland. The scenery is stunning, with dramatic thousand-foot waterfalls plunging down rainforest covered cliffs to the water below.

Day 11 — Prince Rupert

Just 40 mi (66 km) south of the Alaskan border, Prince Rupert is the largest community on British Columbia's north coast. Set on Kaien Island at the mouth of the Skeena River and surrounded by deep green fjords and coastal rain forest, Prince Rupert is rich in the culture of the Tsimshian, people who have been in the area for thousands of years. As the western terminus of Canada's second transcontinental railroad and blessed with a deep natural harbor, Prince Rupert was, at the time of its incorporation in 1910, poised to rival Vancouver as a center for trans-Pacific trade.

Day 12 — Cruising The Inside Passage

If it is drama that you are after, then you certainly need look no further that the dramatic beauty of the Inside Passage. With isolated communities nestling in shoreside villages, mountains rising from the tidal waters, seals basking on ice floes and massive glaciers calving with a thunderous snap in the distance, this stretch of water is quite unique. Named after early explorers who were looking for the Northwest Passage (found much further north), cruising the Inside Passage has become a must for any sailing aficionado.

Day 13 — Vancouver
Killer whale, Vancouver Island, Canada

Killer whale, Vancouver Island, Canada

As you debark the ship the local Silversea representative is on hand to direct you to your motor-coach for a three-hour deluxe sightseeing tour of Vancouver. The city is renowned for its splendid gardens, as well as the mountains, ocean forest and parklands surrounding the city.

This morning you are transferred to the Rocky Mountaineer Rail Depot to begin your journey. Enjoy breakfast aboard the train.

Your journey today takes you through the scenic Fraser Valley and over the dramatic Fraser Canyon.

Continue alongside the Thompson River as you make your way toward Kamloops, British Columbia.

At the end of the day, arrive in Kamloops, British Columbia and transfer to your hotel for check-in. Dinner is at your own expense.

Day 15 — Kamloops to Banff

Rise and shine early today to re-board the Rocky Mountaineer and continue eastward to the Canadian Rockies. Breakfast is served on the train.

You travel through vast ranchlands to Shuswap Lake Pass Craigellachie where the "last spike" was driven completing the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1885. Beyond Craigellachie is Rogers Pass with its tunnels, glistening glaciers, and snowcapped mountains. Thrill as you pass through the Spiral Tunnels in Yoho National Park. Lunch is served on the train as the magnificent scenery continues to parade past.

Arrive in Banff in the early evening and transfer to the historic Fairmont Banff Springs Resort. For more than a century, 'The Castle in the Rockies' has provided the unique blend of luxurious comfort, individualized service and timeless beauty for the most discerning traveler. Please note: rooms in all categories vary in size and location.

Dinner this evening is on your own.

After lunch on your own, depart for a sightseeing tour of Lake Louise, the 'Jewel of the Canadian Rockies'. Along with Moraine Lake, this area is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Upon arrival, time is made available to take photos, explore their shorelines, and learn about the area's mountaineering history. Your tour concludes with a stroll to a viewpoint in the Valley of Ten Peaks for splendid views and photo opportunities overlooking Moraine Lake.
