Canada 12-Day Luxury Small-Group Tour logo
Travel until 20 Mar 2023

Witness the winter wonderland magic of Canada’s West – the best place in the world for watching the spectacular Northern Lights – on a 12-day luxury small-group tour (max. 16 travellers).

Experience Vancouver, the vibrant waterfront city with nature on its doorstep, home to foodies’ paradise Gastown, where you'll take a progressive food tour with matching wines, beers and cocktails. Then, travel to wildly beautiful Banff National Park for unforgettable moments including an evening ice walk of Johnston Canyon and a picture-perfect sleigh ride through the Rockies. Enjoy two nights at the iconic Fairmont Château Lake Louise, where you'll learn to snowshoe and indulge in a fabulous Fairmont afternoon tea. Chase the Northern Lights in Yellowknife — which enjoys at least 200 starlit viewing nights a year — and warm up by the woodfire in dedicated teepees in Aurora Village, where you can watch the striking Northern Lights dance across the sky from the comfort of heated chairs that spin 360 degrees.
