03/Jun/2019

What do you get when you combine several very different “bucket-list” experiences into one incredible itinerary? A holiday to remember for the rest of your life, that’s what! Here at Jetline we’re always striving to provide our clients with the most enjoyable and fulfilling holiday possible, so we work hard to create inspirational packages that pack all the fun and relaxation into one fabulous trip.

The Canadian Rockies and Alaska: A Perfect Pairing

Our clients often tell us that this is one of our best holidays – a combination of the iconic rail journey on the Rocky Mountaineer with the awe-inspiring and unforgettable magic of an Alaska cruise. We take care of all the details and bring the separate elements together in a perfect, once-in-a-lifetime experience that just can’t be missed.

And, while you might think that’d be impossible to beat, we’ve also got something a little extra up our sleeves, with the launch of our 2020 packages that include the opportunity to join in the heel-kicking fun and frivolity of the fabulous Calgary Stampede!

Ultimate Experiences with Jetline Alaska Cruises

The rail and cruise experience is so incredible that we don’t think you should have to choose between them. That’s why we’ve created some very special packages that allow you to try both – and in style and luxury all the way! Each package has its own unique features in addition to the rail and cruise experience so there’s truly something for everyone.

Grand Canadian Rockies Tour and Alaska Cruise

Living up to its ‘grand’ name, this 15-night package truly is the ultimate way to explore Canada and Alaska. From the moment you land in Calgary, it’s game on as you work your way through a host of major attractions, including the stunning Lake Louise, Banff (complete with a helicopter tour) and the vast icefields at Jasper. From there you’ll set off on your way through the Rockies on the world-renowned Rocky Mountaineer rail journey. You’ll be treated to the legendary SilverLeaf service as you make your way through jaw-dropping scenery to Kamloops, and then on to Vancouver. It’s hard to believe but there’s still so much more to come on this jam-packed itinerary…

In Vancouver you’ll board the impressive Koningsdam or Nieuw Amsterdam, both part of the prestigious Holland America Line’s fleet of ships, then it’s off on the high seas on a scenic voyage to Alaska. You’ll travel through the breath-taking scenery that defines this frozen wonderland, catching sight of its unique wildlife along the way and enjoying the luxury service of this renowned line. A grand adventure indeed…     

The Canadian Rockies and Alaskan Eclipse

Variety is the spice of life, so we’ve also created another stellar package that brings together the wild and raw beauty of these two stunning destinations. This 13-night package gives you an overnight stay in beautiful Banff, before embarking on the romance of rail travel on the Rocky Mountaineer from Kamloops to Vancouver. Cameras at the ready as you pass through some of the most enchanting scenery on the planet at a leisurely and laidback pace. You’ll never want the journey to end, but end it must, in Vancouver, where your Alaska cruise awaits!

You’ll board Celebrity Cruises’ Eclipse to enjoy the renowned hospitality and luxury facilities of the ship as you travel along the Alaskan coastline, taking in the dramatic glacial landscape and catching sight of the wildlife along the way, before returning to Vancouver.

Brand New: Calgary Stampede Package

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, we go one step further! We are so excited to be announcing the dates for the 2020 itinerary to Canada and Alaska, which includes the opportunity to attend “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth” – the world-famous Calgary Stampede!

Once a year, in July, the vibrant city of Calgary comes alive with the sights, sounds, colours and celebrations of this ten-day bucking bronco event that’s been going on for more than a century. There’s nothing quite like the atmosphere of over a million visitors a year coming together in one community spirit to enjoy the thrills and spills of one of the world’s largest rodeos. The fun also includes night parades, music concerts, agricultural competitions, chuckwagon races and a general, all-round boot-scootin’ good time!

If the Calgary Stampede has always been on your bucket list, now you can tick off the rodeo, a journey on the Rocky Mountaineer and a luxury Alaska cruise with the Holland America Line all in one fabulous package. Now that’s what we call an adventure…
