ANAHEIM, March 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- From the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains to an abundance of forest and wildlife, Canada's two most western provinces offer everything visitors can imagine and guided vacations leader, Trafalgar, has teamed up with tourism boards Destination British Columbia and Travel Alberta this spring to promote travel to Western Canada. For a limited-time, travelers can save up to $572 per couple* on guided vacations to Western Canada when booked and paid by April 30, 2014.
Blessed with breathtaking landscapes like the sparkling waterfront of Victoria to the snow-covered mountains of Whistler, British Columbia is also home to the cosmopolitan culture of Vancouver with world class exhibitions, uptown shopping and culinary delights.
