As you travel through British Columbia’s Coast Mountain Range to its majestic Pacific coastline, the vegetation changes from desert landscape to lush alpine forest.

Day 12: JUNEAU.
Located at the foot of grand mountain peaks on Gastineau Channel, Alaska’s capital city of Juneau has massive Mendenhall Glacier and the Juneau Icefield at its back door. Visit the rustic shops in town—or get out and kayak, raft, hike, whale watch, flightsee, or fish. There’s no end to the adventure because of the long daylight hours. (B,L,D)
Day 13: SKAGWAY.
In winter, the sidewalks are all but rolled up in Skagway, so you can imagine the frightful conditions endured by gold prospectors who passed through enroute to the Yukon. Take your time and poke your head into every little shop, from the Trail Bench to Lynch & Kennedy’s Dry Goods. The Red Onion Saloon, with its honky-tonk piano and costumed barmaids, is a treasure trove of memorabilia featuring pictures of Klondike Kate, Peahull Annie, and other historic characters. To complete the picture of those rip-roaring days, visit the nostalgic Trail of ’98 Museum. (B,L,D)
Day 14: SCENIC CRUISING: GLACIER BAY.
Glacier Bay has more actively calving tidewater glaciers than anyplace else in the world. How does it feel when a colossal chunk of ice splits off a glacier and crashes into the sea? The sound is like thunder. The impact shoots water hundreds of meters into the air. You hold your breath as you capture the moment on camera, then you wait for it all to happen again. (B,L,D)
Day 15: KETCHIKAN.
Built over the water and up weathered stairways, Ketchikan clings to the shores of Tongass Narrows and drapes the mountains with a hospitable air. (B,L,D)

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
The tour matched what was advertised. Some of the hotels didn't have air but that was to be expected in a National Park but all were clean and updated.
This trip was our first tour, and everything about it was awesome. The accommodations were all very good with Banff and Victoria being exceptional. Our tour guide was organized, very knowledgeable, and very kind. The bus driver was also excellent. And, most important, the sights that we saw and the places we went to were superior. I am a retired teacher, and I would give this tour a grade of A+!!!!!
I have taken so many Cosmos tours and each time they seem to improve in accommodations. I love the room share option you have which is so good for me since I often travel alone. Single supplement costs can be outrageous at times depending on the country.
It was the best Cosmos trip we have done, the Rockies were gorgeous and our tour guide was excellent
