TRIP

Hurtigruten

This trip was amazing. When Bob started dreaming about Norway, I don’t think he thought we could see so many amazing things. We both saw more than we ever dreamed of. Thank you for helping us to plan this dream.

First, we figured out that the price of everything is very high, especially alcohol. Do not buy alcohol there, it is way too expensive. I am glad we brought extra money to spend, we were able to do so many excursions. Read More >

Iceland Luxury Self-Drive

After several months of waiting, time finally came for a September trip to Iceland. Off we went for our drive around the Ring Road. Shauna Cook set up a complete itinerary for the trip based on the 14 day Great Canadian Travel Company tour with modifications to include an excursion to the West Fjords. It was a great trip. Nice accommodations, interesting driving, with so many sights and places to see. We loved it and brought many great memories back to our homes in the desert of southern Utah. Read More >

Cycling in Albania

Cycling Morocco

A friend and I wanted to go on a cycling trip and were thinking about Morocco. We went to Great Canadian Travel and they helped us select and book a suitable cycling trip with Exodus Travel. We joined a dozen others, mainly English and a couple of New Zealanders.   We had both English and Moroccan cycling guides, along with a support van and a four-wheel drive jeep to support us on tough terrain and change flats or perform bike repairs on the spot.

TRIP

Churchill Polar Bears

One fine morning in October 2016, somewhere in the world, a person wakes up with the conviction that she will see polar bears evolving in their natural habitat before celebrating her 75th birthday, the next month, in November.

Premonition? Madness? Caprice? Awareness of the ecological threat? Anyway, she calls me …  This person is my mother and anyone who knows her as well as I, knows that when she has decided on something, it is difficult to make her change her mind.  Read More >

Hightlights of Morocco

In December, Martha helped us book our adventure to Morocco and Spain for the months of February-March.

We did a 15-day G Adventures tour to Morocco called Highlights of Morocco.  True to its name, we had the opportunity to see the exciting highlights of what the country has to offer. Read More >

Cambodia and Vietnam

On March 7th, 2017 my husband and I departed for a 3 week adventure tour to Cambodia and Vietnam.  Once again Martha from Great Canadian Travel did an amazing job of providing us with advice, ideas and reputable small group tour companies to consider.  She provided support on the flights we choose, visas and answered a whole host of other questions we had.

African Safari

African Safari in Tanzania, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa

My partner and I travelled to Africa for 6 weeks with the help of Great Canadian Travel and particularly Arne Hydamaka.  This man customized a tour for us that was beyond our wildest African dreams!

We gave Arnie a list of places and dreams that we had, and he proceeded with the arrangements to make them come true.  Easily and effortlessly we travelled through Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and the southern portion of South Africa.

Eating My Vegetarian Way Around Ireland

Eating My Vegetarian Way Around Ireland – 

Irish food always raises visions of Irish stew with lamb, beef and Guinness stew, corned beef and cabbage, blood pudding, breakfast sausages, and, of course, potatoes.  As a vegetarian, what would I eat other than potatoes and soggy vegetables?  As a precaution, I packed a bag of energy and protein bars.  I returned with it unopened.

Cycling in Albania

Where in the World is Albania? Cycling in a Little Known Country of Mystery – 

When informed that I was going cycling in Albania, most asked where, or even what, Albania was.  It’s a small nation with a complex, diverse, and difficult history, Albania is north of Greece and south of Croatia/Montenegro on the Adriatic coast.  The Great Canadian Travel Group helped book our trip to this fascinating, rarely seen country.

Iceland on a Budget

We had the BEST time.  I would have to say that out of all the countries I’ve travelled to, Iceland by far has my favourite scenery.  There is amazing scenery everywhere of course, but Iceland’s unique, diverse, ever changing beauty is the top of my list!

Across the North

I had an amazing time in both Churchill and Yellowknife, and was extremely fortunate to have been able to view everything that I was hoping for. In Churchill, kayaking with the Beluga whales is such an incredible experience – to have dozens of them literally within arms length is so exhilarating.

Polar Bear Adventure

It is ironic that I spend most of my life in Manitoba but I have to move away to California to realize that I really needed to see and experience a Polar Bear adventure back in Churchill, Manitoba. And what an experience it was! These giant bears are among earth’s mysterious and fascinating animals and seeing them is akin to my trips to see lions, tigers and elephants. And with climate change happening I was even more compelled to arrange a trip to visit them. Read More >

Georgia Food, Wine & Culture

“Are you crazy?”  “You may never get home again.” “You could be kidnapped.”  These were the kind of reactions we got when we announced that we were planning to go to Georgia and the Caucasus.  After a phone call from Max Johnson one afternoon, telling us how much we would enjoy the adventure, we were convinced by his enthusiasm that we should go. That, as well as encouragement from Lois, our travel advisor at The Great Canadian Travel Company, was the catalyst for our plan. Read More >
