This small intimate tour provides a journey of a lifetime through one of the wildest, diverse and unbelievably beautiful parts of the world. Starting in Prince George, a spectacular rail journey takes us along the mighty Skeena River to the coastal city of Prince Rupert. We navigate the wild and rugged lands and waters of the Pacific Northwest via the magical and pristine Northern Inside Passage where bald eagles, grizzly bears and whales are as numerous as residents. Embedded into Canadian History, we will learn about First Nations traditions, art, and living culture. Along the way, you will experience distinctly Canadian activities that will deepen your understanding of Canadian culture, nature and landscape. Be sure to pack your binoculars for this tour!
