Setting sail from Vancouver

Cosmopolitan Vancouver is a city that rewards exploration, an eminently liveable place and an easy gateway to the natural beauty of British Columbia. The culinary scene here is a particular draw, with seafood galore and some fantastic Asian restaurants, and the city has also been at the forefront of the craft beer movement. Verdant Stanley Park is a favourite of locals and visitors alike, while Kitsilano's beaches and wooden houses are wonderfully picturesque. Cultural attractions tend to be on a smaller scale than you'd expect from a city of this size, but the thrill of stumbling across one of Vancouver's quirky little galleries is all part of the city's appeal.

Our tip

Canadians call their one-dollar coins “loonies” (because it bears the image of a loon) and their two-dollar coins “toonies” so sort out your vocabulary and talk like a local!

Arriving in Seward

The tiny city of Seward, home to just 3,000 people, enjoys a spectacular setting on the edge of Resurrection Bay, on Alaska's southern coast. Surrounded by the mountains and forests of the Kenai Fjords National Park, it's a great base for exploring the Harding Ice Field and the stunning scenery of the Kenai Peninsula. It's also a hub for activities including sea kayaking, birding and whale watching, and has a pleasant downtown area with plenty of shops and good quality restaurants. If you have time, the excellent Alaska Sealife Centre is also well worth a visit.

Don't miss

Kenai Fjords National Park is Alaska in one bite – fantastic sea life, stunning natural beauty.

Ways to make it better
Rosewood Hotel Georgia, Vancouver

Our favourite hotel in Vancouver

If you’re not committed to the waterfront where the ships come in, we love the Rosewood Hotel Georgia.

Grizzly bear at Knight Inlet, Canada

Stay a little longer in Canada

If you’ve time, set aside a couple of days to travel to Knight Inlet Lodge for bear viewing.

Downtown Anchorage

Where to stay in Seward

If you’re here, you’re probably not stopping long. You get a better choice of hotels in nearby Anchorage.
