Globus and Cosmos take care of the logistics – from first-class hotels and luxury transportation to VIP access at the iconic sights. Your journey will be seamlessly planned to a T, so you can sit back and enjoy everything from the breathtaking mountain views of the West to the delicious seafood and poutine of the East.
