For 10 days each year Calgary, Alberta puts its cowboy hat on and welcomes the world for the Calgary Stampede, ‘The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth’. The stampede takes place just one hour from the majestic Rocky Mountains and is the perfect way to kick off a true western adventure. Combining the stampede with the world-famous luxury Rocky Mountaineer train through this breathtaking landscape, it will make your Canadian sojourn truly memorable. Pass by towering mountains and dramatic canyons as you make your way to the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver. Your adventure continues as you embark your luxury Holland America cruise ship, Nieuw Amsterdam, for a 7 night Alaska cruise where impressive mountains are replaced by awe-inspiring glaciers. You may even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of bears and whales frolicking in their natural habitat!
