23-day family road trip | July 2023
Road trip from the Wild West Coast to the Canadian Rockies
We take a classic route and spice it up with coastal treats on Vancouver Island, ride the Inside Passage ferry north to pristine alpine landscapes around Smithers and end the trip amid world renowned scenery.
Natural splendour is the operative word. Yet, carefully chosen guided excursions and lesser-known destinations such as Cormorant Island, the N’sga lava fields, the migrating salmon in Hyder (Alaska) and the magnificence of Salmon Glacier add another dimension to this trip.
A relaxed family road trip with time to look for wildlife, kayaking, a wonderful boat-lodge adventure, a chance to get acquainted with First Nation traditions and an eye-opening ferry ride up the Inside Passage.
