Canadian Rockies Trip Report and Itinerary (Updated)

Canada (Rocky Mountains) . 2016 . Apr 15 - 30

On an Alaskan Cruise, one can choose to do a pre / post cruise tour to the land of Alaska or to visit the Rocky Mountains in Canada.

On our last Alaska cruise trip, we chose to do the Alaska Land Tour to the Denali National Park, Mount McKinley and Fairbanks as we wanted to see more of Alaska.

However, the Canadian Rockies has always been on our bucket list, and when the opportunity arises to visit it this year, we seize upon it! :)




Here's our itinerary with some photos and links to our reviews for our trip.

Hyperlinks will be added as when the blog post reviews is ready.
