Grand Tour British Columbia Alaska Panhandle & Glacier Bay
The Northern Pacific coast between British Columbia and Alaska is an astonishing land, composed of a kaleidoscopic mix of landscapes that evoke unparalleled experiences and emotions. This trip will take you from the wild and stormy coasts of the Pacific west of Vancouver Island, up to the Queen Charlotte Islands and the frozen sub-arctic coast of Alaska. Here, you’ll see the brilliant tops of Mount McKinley and the Alaskan Ranges – among the largest glaciers on the planet with magnificent forests dispersed across tundra landscapes. The ocean, inland streams and beautiful rivers of British Columbia witness the spectacular return of millions of salmons upstream every year. A large number of cetaceans also live in the region, including the biggest living being on our planet, the blue whale.
In the Great Bear Rainforest, the famous park reserve opened by WWF in 2004, you will find marvelous creatures such as giant moose, black-tailed deer, grizzlies, black bears and Kermode bears: the white variety of black bears exclusive to this region.
