North America

A holiday to North America offers a land of diversity and the home of a vast wilderness of untamed forest, desert, tundra, volcanoes and lakes. It provides travellers with a range of experiences, from whale-watching in Baja California to scouting bears in the wild frontier of Alaska.

In the far north lies Alaska. Separated from the rest of the United States by Canada, it is an outdoor world, a wild frontier, and a land of many faces. Often so vast and roadless that many areas still remain inaccessible, an Alaskan cruise aboard a small ship with the freedom of a flexible itinerary and a shallow draft to access the quieter backwaters is the perfect way to unlock this little visited area.

Canada is an outdoor playground with gentle hikes to extreme winter sports – towering glaciers, emerald lakes, cosmopolitan cities, award-winning restaurants and incredible wildlife experiences mark the beginnings of what Canada has to offer. The Canadian Arctic also hosts some incredible voyages and wildlife encounters including whale-watching, polar bear walks and swimming with belugas.

Roxy was incredibly good at assessing what we wanted from our trip to Alaska, and advising us of exactly where to go and when.

I could not have wished for a better and more efficient itinerary in terms of both the destinations we visited and how the timing coincided. Plus, the communication from Roxy was excellent throughout.

After years of dreaming about a trip like this, I entrusted the planning and logistics to Sue. What a seamless journey and the most memorable trip – I will never forget seeing a narwhal for the first time.
