There are times when words, even superlatives, aren’t sufficient to adequately describe certain travel experiences. My recent trip through the Canadian Rockies with Insight Vacations was just such an event.
Some of the most beautiful scenery that North America has to offer can be seen in Western Canada with Rocky Mountaineer. While flying and driving are certainly viable ways to get around, one unique and awe-inspiring way to see the best of the Canadian West is with Rocky Mountaineer.
I live in Houston, Texas so when I first contemplated a getaway from the August heat, I wanted somewhere cool and somewhere I’d never been before. I specialize in and typically take cruises on most of my vacations. I’ve never been on an escorted tour before, so when I decided to try it out. I wanted one that would be easy to get to, with visits to cities not terribly far from each other, as I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about traveling by bus every day. When I found Trafalgar’s Canada’s Rockies, it was the perfect fit. I got to escape 100 degree heat and enjoy summertime outdoors in beautiful 60 degree weather, with breathtaking scenery. Outstanding!
