Julie McAulay

Travel Designer

Born and raised in Darwin, Australia, Julie first came to Vancouver as part of a year-long holiday and decided she didn't want to leave. 

Four years later she found herself at Canada By Design, sharing her love for travel with ten years in the industry. 

Part of what Julie loves about Vancouver is the surrounding mountains, fun nightlife and proximity to beaches. 

What is your favorite Canadian Rail Tour?

My favorite Canadian rail package is the "Snow Train to the Rockies." I thoroughly enjoyed being on VIA Rail from Vancouver to Jasper as it really holds a sense of community and coziness. My highlight was waking up in my sleeper cabin and opening the window to see snow for the first time that winter! That experience alone reminded me just why I loved traveling so much.

What is your favorite rail tour in Alaska?

The "Prince William Sound Denali Explorer" package is a must-do in Alaska, thanks to its inclusions of glacier cruising, flightseeing, and bear viewing in redoubt bay & Denali National Park. Animal lovers will really appreciate the number of opportunities for wildlife viewing, and you're bound to get some great photos you can look back on for a lifetime.
