Departs at 4:30 PM
Alive with the hum of high-energy adventure, Vancouver is a sophisticated cityscape on the edge of British Columbia’s wild interior. This multicultural city offers a bit of everything: big city buzz, sky-high mountains and Pacific beaches. If you’re a history buff you can view First Nations artefacts at the Museum of Anthropology. Take little ones to meet over 50,000 aquatic creatures at the Vancouver Aquarium, or get a bird’s eye view of the old-growth forest at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Horseshoe Bay salmon fishing… Granville Island paddle boarding… Grouse Mountain’s aerial tram – discover loads of outdoor adventures in Vancouver, from the bay to the backwoods.


Walk the cobbled streets of Gastown, admiring 20th-century brick buildings and taking a selfie with the whistling Steam Clock. Explore Maple Tree Square, site of ‘Gassy Jack’ Deighton’s first tavern, and then stroll under the elaborate Chinatown Millennium Gate. Eat Asian delights – or escape the bustle amid Dr Su Yat-Sen’s peaceful gardens.
Insider tip
Canadians are known to offer a polite smile and “hello” when even greeting strangers.


Breathe in the 1,000-acre greenspace of Stanley Park, one of the largest urban parks in North America. Hike along the red cedar forest trails, relax beachside, take a horse-drawn carriage ride,or view the Brockton Point totem poles. Then walk along the Seawall, with the city centre skyline as your backdrop.


Take a scenic ferry ride to Victoria, the capital of British Columbia. Get lost in the romance of its English-inspired traditions with a proper afternoon tea at the Empress hotel. Wander Butchart Gardens’ gorgeous topiaries and admire Craigdarroch Castle’s Victorian architecture. Victoria Public Market is an excellent dining and shopping spot.


Vancouver’s cultural diversity is the key ingredient to its unique culinary scene. Dozens of food trucks, street food stalls and farmers’ markets offer something for every taste. Farm-to-table dishes feature Fraser Valley duck and spot prawns. Enjoy an assortment of Asian cuisine, from Chinese dim sum to Japanese ramen. Then sip Okanagan Valley wine or Granville Island beer from Canada’s first micro-brewery.


Head to Robson Street for mainstream chain stores, or hit the quirky indie shops of Gastown, Main Street and Commercial Drive. Lonsdale Quay Market is home to 80 unique shops, while Granville Island’s art studios sell First Nations carvings and jewellery – plus its public market is known for gourmet goods.

Day 3: Sitka, Alaska

Day 3
View Itinerary
Things to do in
From 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Sitka truly offers the best of Alaska. Its small-town appeal stems from a unique blend of Russian, Tlingit and American history. Its snow-capped peaks and volcanic Mount Edgecumbe pose amongst the state’s most postcard-worthy scenes. And its rare wildlife astounds, from Saint Lazaria Island’s orange-beaked puffins to Alaska Maritime Refuge’s 40 million seabirds. This is off-the-beaten-track Alaska, where you can kayak Sitka Sound alongside swimming sea otters or fly-fish for the world’s biggest halibut. Whether it’s hiking along Baranof Island trails or listening to tribal stories passed down for generations, in Sitka the midnight sun never sets on adventure.


Explore Sitka National Historical Park to trace the town’s early beginnings and native heritage. See indigenous artefacts, watch a documentary film and walk the mile-long Totem Trail. Then view creative pieces by local Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian artists at the Sitka Cultural Centre.
Insider tip
Pack your sunglasses – Alaska has bright sunlight even in winter.


Learn about Sitka’s Russian influence on a walk to St Michael’s Cathedral, one of the few remaining Russian Orthodox churches in Alaska. Check out the Russian Bishop’s House and watch New Archangel Dancers perform traditional choreography. Then stand atop Castle Hill, where the first American flag flew over Alaska in 1867.
Insider tip
Don’t eat berries along Alaskan trails, as some are poisonous.


Get up close to native eagles, owls, falcons and hawks at the Alaska Raptor Centre’s rehab hospital. Meet the vets who nurse injured birds back to health and view the flight-training centre – a rainforest environment where recovered animals relearn survival skills before being released back into the wild.


The local Pacific Northwest 'frontier cuisine' is packed with fresh seafood offerings like sockeye lox and halibut fish and chips. Here you’ll find Dungeness crab harvested by local families and food trucks serving black cod collars. And don’t miss Baranof Island Brewing Company – the Silver Bay IPA and Halibut Point Hefeweizen are two solid sipping options.


City centre galleries are your best bet for Northwest Coast native art and jewellery made by Inupiat Eskimos. Russian nesting dolls, woven Tlingit baskets and wild berry products also make authentic Alaskan souvenirs. Pop into the WinterSong Soap Company for herbal bath products made on-site.

Aomori is a relatively unexplored city located north of Honshu, Japan's main island. Visit the Hirosaki Castle during the Cherry Blossom Festival during the springtime.

Yokohama is the central gateway to exploring Tokyo, a once-humble fishing village that is now one of the world's biggest, most densely populated cities.

Walk the Rainbow Bridge over Tokyo Bay alongside the Yurikamome Rail Line, a futuristic, operatorless train system.
