Guided National Park Tours: Incredible Canadian and Alaskan Landscapes and Wildlife

Home to the largest total national park area in the world (377 000 square kilometres), Canada boasts countless truly spectacular landscapes that must be experienced first-hand: from rolling tundra punctuated by dark, steep mountains, to emerald lakes and beautiful hikes on secret trails . Along the way, chances are high of spotting indigenous wildlife such as Caribou herds, Dall sheep, wolves and more. Across the border, incredible ferry rides through the blue glaciers of Alaska and the exceptional variety of marine wildlife will surely command your attention. Orcas, salmon-eating bears, and hundreds of species of birds are all likely to let themselves be spied upon during your sightseeing trip.

Many of our guided camping tours and comfortable hotel packages offer day excursions in Yukon and Alaskan parks: their beauty is simply an unavoidable highlight. However, if you’d like to experience as many of the National Parks of the region as possible in one go, our two Inside Passage tours and our Rockies to Alaska trip are definitely worth a look. The first two, nearly two weeks long, offer hotel accommodation overnight and are ideal for a nature vacation away from work. The Rockies to Alaska Camping tour, on the other hand, will give you the opportunity to disconnect from the buzzing of modern day living and reconnect with nearly-untouched nature and calm cities for three whole weeks.

In all three tours, you will be starting your visit in Western Canada, and enjoy hiking and wildlife watching in our most notable National Parks. Banff, the first Canadian National Park, will stun you with its spectacular alpine meadows, lakes, and ridges. In Yoho National Park, you will hike up to Lake Louise (an alpine lake), or further, to a summit with breathtaking views of the surroundings. Later, the mountain trails in Jasper National Park and Tombstone Territorial Park will lead you to views of extraordinary vertical reliefs and the impressively steep peaks that give Tombstone Park its name. You will also have the chance to see Canada’s tallest peak, Mt Logan, in Kluane National Park, and later, the tallest mountain in North America: Denali (formerly Mt. McKinley). Before the end of the tour, you’ll also enjoy a ferry ride on the Lynn Canal, where glaciers and marine wildlife surround you and where you might see seals, whales, Alaskan Brown bears and more.

If, however, you’d rather learn everything there is to know about a single park at a time, we offer two guided trekking tours in Tombstone National Park, and have an upcoming Kenai Fjords National Park tour. The Yukon hiking expeditions, Canada’s Patagonia and Explore Secret Valleys both highlight the stunning views of tundra landscapes, vibrant arctic flowers and dwarf willows, and the clear alpine lakes of the park. Wildlife viewers will enjoy sights of bears, sheep, caribou, and an extraordinary variety of birds while backpacking through these rugged mountains.
