Just back from the latest update on Canada!! Let us guide you in the right direction whether you want to do the Rockies, experience wildlife (even see a bear!), have an adventure, go skiing, do a cruise and more......
One good reason to go to Canada this year is for the Calgary Stampede, celebrating its 100 years this runs in July – Different packages available so you can join in the celebrations. Country and Western folk from around the world will gather in Calgary to witness the myriad of events, including calf roping, steer wrestling, bull riding, barrel racing, saddle bronc and bareback riding in a festival held over 10 days!
Travel by train gives a whole new outlook and there are 2 types in Canada – Via Rail or Rocky Mountaineer. You might want to travel across Canada or see the gorgeous Rocky Mountains.... Both different styles, both difference experiences and we can explain those to you.
Vancouver Island is an adventure capital with activities galore. An amazing way to get here is by floatplane! Talk to Michelle, she has done it. Awesome views over the city. The difference in price is minimal, only about $27 as opposed to going by ferry both ways. The Butchart Gardens on the island are world famous and well worth a visit. 55 acres of stunning floral displays. Such dedication to keeping the gardens pristine could not see a weed in sight. High Tea at the Empress is another must do. This has been around for over 100 years. Think gorgeous heritage building, fancy food & endless tea – you don’t go away hungry.
If the Artic is on your bucket list, the 118 passenger Clipper Adventure ship is among the very few vessels in the world specifically constructed for expedition voyages like this. Special features allows the Clipper Adventurer to go places that larger cruise ships can only dream off. With a short ‘Arctic’ season this year of August & September you need to get in fast!
Air NZ fly direct to Vancouver 3 times a week. You can choose Economy, Premium Economy or Business Class. Air NZ now offer the Economy Skycouch on flights to/from Los Angeles. This gives you a trio of 3 seats with a footrest that comes up to seat level & allow you much more space. Some call it ‘cuddle class’!
