Essential Iceland

Intending to use the Icelandair stopover program en-route to a visit to England, we were fortunate to find Great Canadian Travel Company in Winnipeg through a Google search, and enlisted Iceland Specialist Shauna Cook to advise and plan our tour.

Tanzania Migration

It had always been a dream to see the migration and some of the African National Parks. Our dream came true when we booked a “Chance to See the Migration” tour with GCTC and their new partner Asilia. Apart from the lure of the migration, the chance to sleep under tents and also in a moveable camp was a determinant in choosing this tour for travel in May 2016.

Aurora Escape, Yellowknife and Blachford Lake Lodge

The first day at Blachford it was very overcast and nobody had high hopes of seeing the lights. But, sure enough, later that night they came out and danced around the sky. I was able to watch them from my bed in the lodge which was nice as they were super epic and a step up from the ones earlier in the night. Yellowknife and Blachford were incredible and I had an amazing time!

Enchanting Islands

My escorted tour to the Canadian Maritimes (Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island) was one of the most fun and relaxing trips I have ever taken.  I visited so many beautiful places, and many of them were places that I would not have thought to visit had it not been for the local expert leading the tour.  Highlights of the trip included having breakfast in Peggy’s Cove, watching the Anne of Green Gables musical in Charlottetown, authentic lobster supper in Cavendish, and driving the picturesque Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island.  My favourite part of the trip was the time we spent on Prince Edward Island.  It was amazing to see the red cliffs in person!

The Mighty St. Lawrence

From New France to France down the Mighty St. Lawrence with Adventure Canada. Does it get any better? We left Quebec City on a beautiful sunset evening and arrived in the early morning mist at the French Islands of St Pierre and Miquelon a week later on board the wonderful expedition ship, The Ocean Endeavour, the newest and most up-to-date ship operated by Adventure Canada.

Iceland Complete and Classic Greenland Coastal Voyage

We are now back home after a great trip.  The arrangements you made for us went off like clock work without a glitch.  We really enjoyed seeing both Iceland and Greenland and I especially enjoyed the Inuit villages in Greenland.  The weather in both countries was warmer than I had anticipated but we were told that it was unseasonably warm and we only had two short periods of light drizzle during our entire trip, so we lucked in.  Also, there was very little wind in Iceland which I understand is unusual.

Thanks, Allison, for doing such a great job.

The Three Lands Epic Tour

The Three Lands Epic Tour began with a desire to see Ireland. I was going to rent a car and see a few things over a week… on the cheap. I then invited my Mom to see the places her Grandmother (my Great-Grandmother) came from and the trip grew from there.  It bloomed into a multiple country odyssey that began in Vancouver and went to Ireland, Scotland and Iceland.

Panama Canal

Cruising the Panama Canal had always been on my bucket list and finally I was able to check it off my list and take along my son and daughter for the ride. Great Canadian Travel was great, they helped me figure out which cruise line to book with based on what we wanted to see and do.

We boarded the cruise in Fort Lauderdale where a host from Princess Cruises welcomed us on the cruise ship. The ship is very attractive, entertainment on board is very professionally done, the food was very delicious and plentiful at all times. Read More >

New Year's Festival

On our recent New Years Eve trip to Iceland, we stayed at the Fosshotel Baron. The service there was excellent, their “continental breakfast” was amazing, the shower was small but did the job. The room isn’t fancy like at the Hilton, but it was good for the amount of time we spent in the room. I have to say, their breakfast was beyond what I would consider continental. They had, boiled eggs, fish, tuna salad, all kind of breads, brie cheese, swiss cheese, yummy spreadable cheese, skyr, omelettes, sausages, sandwich meats, veggies and fruits, a waffle maker…. so we never went hungry.

We had an awesome time and loved it all!! The scenery is amazing and so diverse. Our guide was excellent, friendly, informative, knowledgeable and all went very well. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone – it is active with short hikes on trails and up craters, to waterfalls, etc. so not boring but not for the frail.

Barry Nelson

You may not be surprised to hear we enjoyed a great trip that far exceeded our high expectations… Winnipeg was a good stop over with Churchill. Again the trip to Churchill was truly exceptional for it was very well organized; everyone (including the Polar Bears!) very accommodating and over our two full days on the Tundra we encountered at least 60 Bears – some with cubs, others sparring but most just lounging around waiting for the ice to form! We came home with some great pictures and great memories.
