Since 1980, we have been operating Churchill Polar Bear watching tours in Canada's sub-arctic, and from then have expanded our offering in our own backyard to incorporate a wonderful array of Canadian tour programs.
Canada and the USA offer travellers unparalled opportunities to spend fascinating vacations. The continent is huge, encompassing vast prairies, high mountain ranges, rocky shorelines and magnificent beaches; huge cities with endless opportunities for culture, recreation and any urban activity you can dream of. There are hundreds of thousands of roadways to explore, and create fascinating fly/drive vacations as you visit our continent's heartland; from the brilliant Badlands and Black Hills of South Dakota to the dramatic beauty of a circumnavigation of each of the Great Lakes; from the timeless drive through the gracious American southeast to the wild interior of British Columbia, we look forward to helping you build your perfect North American driving holiday.
And if you are looking for organised touring, there is no end to the possibilities!
There are coach tours, canoe tours, cruising vacations and railway journeys; wildlife adventures and some of the world's finest backwoods resorts to be experienced. There are small group explorations of the distant Yukon and Alaska and more conventional motor coach vacations through the Rocky Mountains and the picturesque provinces and states of the Atlantic northeast.
And our job (if one can call it a job!) is to find the perfect vacation for you.
We need to know who you are, though, and look forward to a phone call or email that lets us know that you are ready to book your Canadian or American vacation. From that moment on our experienced travel counsellors will be working for you to find exactly the program to suit your interests and budget.
There are far too many vacation opportunities in Canada and the USA to list them all here, and besides, we believe that a great vacation starts with a personal conversation with a great travel counsellor. So if you don't see exactly the tour that you want on the site, call one of our North American travel experts, and we will find it for you.
