Vancouver
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 artifacts 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 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 adventure in Vancouver, from the bay to the backwoods.

BUBBLING WITH ADVENTURE

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.

FULL OF FRESH AIR

Breathe in the 1,000-acre greenspace of Stanley Park, one of the largest urban parks in North America. Hike 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 downtown skyline as your backdrop.

COLONIAL CHARISMA

Take a scenic ferry ride to Victoria, the capital of British Columbia. Get lost in the romance of its English-inspired traditions with proper 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.

LOCAL CUISINE

Vancouver’s cultural diversity is the key ingredient to its unique culinary scene. Dozens of food trucks, street food carts 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 microbrewery.

Things to do in
Sitka
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 among 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-path Alaska, where you can kayak Sitka Sound alongside swimming sea otters or fly-fish for the world’s biggest halibut. Whether it’s hiking Baranof Island trails or listening to tribal stories passed down for generations, in Sitka the midnight sun never sets on adventure.

LINKS TO THE PAST

Explore Sitka National Historical Park to trace the town’s early beginnings and native heritage. See indigenous artifacts, 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 Center.
Insider tip
Pack your sunglasses— Alaska has bright sunlight even in winter.

BERING HISTORY IN MIND

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.

FOR THE BIRDS

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

LOCAL CUISINE

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.

SHOPPING

Downtown galleries are your best bet for Northwest Coast native art and jewelry made by Inupiat Eskimos. Russian nesting dolls, woven Tlingit baskets and wild berry products also make authentic Alaskan souvenirs. Stop by 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. In summer, you can enjoy the spectacular Nebuta Matsuri festival or explore the deep green virgin beech forests. Fall is great for hiking along the Oirase Gorge river or heading to Aoni Onsen, a remote hot spring resort lit only by gas lanterns. If you cruise to Aomori during the winter, you can admire the snow-covered trees, try skiing or snowboarding, or visit one of the city's museums.

Arrives at 7:00 AM
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. You'll find an eclectic mix of traditional shrines and soaring skyscrapers lining these neon-lit streets. Walk the Rainbow Bridge over Tokyo Bay alongside the Yurikamome Rail Line, a futuristic, operatorless train system. Then, see old Tokyo at the Imperial Palace, an Edo Castle surrounded by moats and gardens perfect for strolling. Cruise to Tokyo and head to iconic Sensoji Buddhist Temple and pass below the massive red paper lantern of the Thunder Gate.

Local Cuisine

Japan has some of the world's most renowned cuisine, and Tokyo is the epicenter of all that goodness. Try nigirizushi-style sushi, with simple, single cuts of delicate raw fish served over vinegared rice. Indulge in Tokyo's unique approach to the pan-Japanese noodle soup ramen — here, thin, wavy noodles luxuriate in a soy-infused chicken broth. Or snack on yakitori, grilled chicken skewers seasoned simply with salt or tare, a savory blend of fish-infused dashi broth, soy and vinegar.

Harajuku in the heart of Tokyo is a shopaholic's dream. From the weird to the classy, you'll find the latest fashion and the coolest brands. For a broader experience, head to Yokohama's 150-year-old Motomachi Shopping street. Hosting a massive sale in September and February, Motomachi has something for everyone. Jump onboard a Tokyo cruise and make sure to bring home some of the region's famous silk, either in the form of a floral kimono or scarf.
