17D Canadian Rockies & ALASKA Cruise (Princess Golden)
I am back from my trip. And I believe a number of you know that I lead tour groups from Singapore. We were lucky as we were blessed with wonderful weather both in Canada, and the Alaska. There were beautiful sunny days except in Ketchikan.
Our itinerary by EU HOLIDAYS (Singapore) covers Banff, and the Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. I am sorry, I couldn't upload my pictures today, as I am experiencing some issues with my laptop (in fact both of my laptops!)
Below is the route of our travel.
Vancouver - Kelowna - Revelstoke
Revelstoke - Banff
Banff - Kamloops - Golden
For those who always love more time to explore, I would strongly recommend at least 2 nights stay in Banff, as it is such a lovely little place, and there are many beautiful scenic spots nearby. If you love trekking or hiking, there are many wonderful trails around.
When I get to upload my pictures later (soon, I hope), you will get to see pictures of the following places:
Gondola ride up to Sulphur Mountain
Columbia Icefield by Snow Coach & Athabasca Glacier
Lake Louis (jewel of the Canadian Rockies)
If you enjoy nature, and want to have more time, you could opt to go for a self drive as there are many campsites in the Canadian Rockies. Enjoy your picnic, go for canoeing on the placid lakes, and go on the many walking trails. I will need sometime to write more about each of these places for you.
The cruise that we took was on Golden Princess, and it took us through the INSIDE PASSAGE, via the Glacier Bay National Park, and it lasted for 8 days and 7 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, as there were so many activities to keep us occupied with Zumba/yoga fitness classes, trivia challenges, nightly performances, presentation by the Naturalist on topics about the Alaska Region, wine tasting session, and etc. By the time we finished our cruise, it didn't feel like we actually spent eight long days out at Sea. There are lots of shore excursions for the passengers to get to see or enjoy more out of their Alaska Cruise holidays.

Day 2 Out at Sea
