The Rocky Mountaineer train is an icon of Western Canada. With its carriages purpose-built to maximise the views of the Canadian Rockies, it is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take your Western Canada holiday to the next level.

2. Go to the Calgary Stampede 

Calgary Stampede

Regarded as the ‘Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth’, the Calgary Stampede is held every July. Its origins date back to 1886 and you’ll witness over a century’s worth of cowboy culture and heritage. From bucking broncos to daring dishes, this boot-stompin’ festival is a feast for the senses. Add the Calgary Stampede to Globus’ Glacier National Park & the Canadian Rockies tour and be a part of the world’s largest rodeo!  

3. Stay at Fairmont properties

The Fairmont hotels are world-famous, so why not add that touch of luxury to your Western Canada holiday with Globus’ Great Resorts of the Canadian Rockies tour? Not only will you see jaw-droppingly beautiful scenery, but you will also be able to tick off the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. Each has their own unique charm – for example, the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel draws inspiration from a Scottish castle complete with afternoon tea, a 27-hole golf course, hot tub and more!  

4. Add an Alaska cruise 


With Alaska on British Columbia’s doorstep, it would be rude not to explore further. On the Grand Western Canada Vacation with Globus, you’ll experience 13 days by coach before embarking on a thrilling 7-night Alaska cruise. Keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife that calls the Inside Passage home like orcas, humpback whales, and bald eagles.  

These are just some of the tours that offer the chance to take your Western Canada holiday with Globus to the next level! Take a look at the full range to start planning your dream trip today.
