On Canada’s East coast, Travelmarvel’s new 17-Day Eastern Delights tour Travelmarvel offers an in-depth discovery of some of the best known sights, including Toronto and Niagara Falls. In addition guests spend two nights at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Cape Cod, which in years gone by has hosted the likes of Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart. Here Travelmarvel hosts a Clam Bake on the beach.
For those wanting to explore by different means, the new 28-Day Canada by Rail with Alaska Cruise combines nine nights in Eastern Canada and eight nights in Western Canada punctuated by a three night VIA Rail journey from Montreal to Jasper in Sleeper Touring Class. Guests also enjoy a two day Rocky Mountaineer experience in SilverLeaf Class and a seven night Alaskan cruise.
Guests who simply can’t get enough of Canada’s exceptional wildlife can also choose to extend their holiday in 2017 with the new Lazy Bear Lodge extension which offers guests the opportunity to see Polar Bears and Beluga Whales.
The brochure showcases three new Great Rail Journeys in the USA, all of which take in iconic cities and sights while travelling aboard some of the country’s iconic railways. On offer is the Trans America Rail journey from San Francisco to New York City; the Tracks of the Deep South which includes the restored Tennessee Valley Railroad and the Lookout Mountain Incline Railway; and the Las Vegas and Golden West journeys which travels from San Francisco to Monterey and includes the Coastal Starlight and Grand Canyon railways.
Cruising remains a popular component of Travelmarvel’s Canada program and guests can choose to sail Alaska’s Inside Passage including a full day at Glacier Bay, or New England itineraries, both of which set sail aboard Holland America Line ships.
Rocky Mountaineer journeys on Travelmarvel’s Western Canada itineraries are all aboard SilverLeaf carriages in 2017.
