Enjoy a dream cruise to Hawaii today with Holland America Cruise Line. The Hawaiian Islands have long been America's tropical playground, a volcanic archipelago in the middle of the Pacific that is the country's most surprising state. Before they became an American territory, before Captain Cook dubbed them the Sandwich Islands, the Hawaiian Islands were the home of a Polynesian culture whose roots still run deep. In Hawaii's floral-scented valleys and on its black-sand beaches, that legacy lives on in an aloha spirit that promises a welcome as warm as the ocean breezes.

  • Return economy class flights from Sydney to Vancouver
  • 8 night Spectacular Canadian Rockies guided holiday by Trafalgar, Vancouver to Calgary

Later, we enjoy some sightseeing in Victoria.

Once home to a thoroughbred racing stable, this riverfront property still has the original brick manor and carriage houses. Relax in the lounge, swimming pool, or hot tub overlooking the South Thompson River, go on a nature walk around the Reflection Pond, try your hand at horseshoes and other lawn games, or take one of their bikes for a spin. Cap off another big day in Canada with a delicious dinner, the great outdoors, and an evening around the fire pit sharing stories with your travel mates with plenty of s’mores and liqueurs for everyone to try.

Don’t worry, the guides do all the rowing; you sit back and enjoy while exploring all the spectacular scenery.

Adult Price: $86.00*
