Alaska is a wild and untouched land. Exquisite in its beauty, it evokes a natural wonder and completes the west coast journey. After cruising the famous Inside Passage, disembark in Alaska and immediately feel the raw and unbridled nature. See the dramatic coastline with glaciers sliding into the ocean, mountains climbing from the tree-lined shores and prolific marine life. Head to the interior to meet some of the friendly locals who have led fascinating lives. Visit the home of Martin Buser, an Iditarod(sled dog racing) champion. Learn about life on the trail and the extreme challenges of


one of the most arduous competitions in the world, then meet the gorgeous dogs that make it all happen. Travel by the iconic Cruisetrain from Seward to Anchorage and the McKinley Explorer train from Talkeetna to Denali National Park. Sit back, relax and take in the majestic scenery from your glass-domed carriage which is the perfect way to experience this land. In Denali National Park, join a Tundra Wilderness tour and spend the day hearing fascinating stories of the park and animals. Marvel at the ancient and mountainous landscape, keeping a lookout for wildlife such as caribou, moose, bear and wolves.

Learn about the gold rush days in Fairbanks. When news of striking it rich made its way down to mainland Canada and the USA, hordes of prospectors with dreams of gold made their way into Alaska. They walked through bitter winters along treacherous mountainous trails, with only a very small proportion of them making their fortune.

We bring this wild land to you so you can feel its raw power while enjoying it all in style. Alaska is one of the last frontiers completing a remarkable journey.

At the end of the day, you’ll stay at impressive wilderness lodges that echo the ambience of the region. Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge and Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge are set in ideal locations with authentic character and impeccable service and are the perfect way to complete your day. evergreentours.com.au

Discover Eastern Canada Historic cities, rich culture and beautiful landscapes A tapestry of fascinating history, rich culture, natural wonders, soaring cities and superb heritage, Eastern Canada is a stark contrast to its more famous west coast neighbour. Being so different in almost every aspect, it is necessary to experience this picturesque land to really get to know all of Canada.

Similarly, Québec City oozes history and tradition. With an attractive and rustic old town comprising a network of pedestrian laneways lined with medieval looking shops, it is a delight to wander.

With European heritage stretching back to its inception, it was the French who finally settled this beautiful land. Travelling throughout Eastern Canada, especially in Québec province, you will see, hear and taste the French and European influences everywhere.

In contrast, Toronto is a modern metropolis with towering buildings dominating the skyline. Visit CN Tower, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere where the views will astound. Or spend time enjoying the traditional chateau architecture and tulip lined boulevards of Ottawa. As the capital of Canada, it has a remarkably relaxed feel and an amazing array of sights.

Cobbled streets fill the old town with a traditional atmosphere, colourful shop fronts adorn the streets and it’s easy to find a cosy restaurant or pub on a street corner and watch the world go by. Stories of battles, conquests, hardships and successes ripple through the land. Traditions handed down through generations are still evident in daily life, however these sit alongside cutting edge modernity as cities display some of the sleekest boutiques and skyscrapers in the world.

Then there are the incredible natural and cultural sights and attractions. Visit a sugar shack in the Québec countryside where you’ll meet a local family and learn about all kinds of maple products. Stand in awe as you watch the immense Niagara Falls thunder down a cliffside spraying a fine mist of water into the air. If visiting in autumn, see the spectacle of changing colours across the countryside. Trees transform into canvases and splash reds, oranges and yellows across the land in a magnificent show of nature.

Montréal is an eclectic mix of old and new. Ancient churches sit side by side with modern glass clad buildings while the chic French style of the people is apparent in their cutting edge boutiques, shops and restaurants.

With such incredible variety and depth, Eastern Canada is alive with a natural vibrancy. Be sure not to miss this significant other half of Canada and find out the complete story of this fabulous nation.

Sailing from Montréal to Boston, this cruise covers untouched waterways, magnificent coastline, national parks and quaint villages to show you a part of Canada and the USA that you didn’t know existed. Cruise on board Holland America’s luxurious ms Zaandam with oversized staterooms, outstanding facilities, award-winning service and elegant décor. Set sail from the quintessentially French city of Montréal and cruise up the picturesque Saint Lawrence River to Québec City. To visit Québec is to experience France without crossing the Atlantic. The architecture, the ambience, and the animated conversation on the street confirm the impression that a piece of France has been permanently embedded into North America. Head out of the Saint Lawrence River into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence where numerous islands are dotted throughout. One of the more famous and beautiful is Prince Edward Island, known for it’s raw beauty and for being the birthplace of Canada, but is probably more commonly known for being the place that inspired Anne of Green Gables.

Some of the most raw and rugged beauty awaits in Nova Scotia. Explore Cape Breton Island and the Cabot Trail, a famous coastal drive of winding mountain roads, serene lakes and clifftop vistas over icy oceans. Cross into the USA and stop at possibly the most picturesque part of New England, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Offering unrivalled natural beauty it is renowned as one of the best places to experience the natural phenomenon of the autumn colours where splashes of red, yellow and orange set the landscape ablaze with colour. Finish your cruise in historic Boston, the “Cradle of American Independence,” where there are unending stories and landmarks to keep you enthralled. Get a sense of the Revolutionary struggle that changed America’s destiny with a stroll along Boston’s Freedom Trail. All this is intertwined with academic institutions, innovative art and architecture. Known as one of the prettiest parts of North America, cruising New England is a spectacular way to get to know the real Canada and USA. Join us on a Holland America cruise and discover why New England is one of the fastest growing cruise destinations in North America.
