What is an inspirational journey?
An inspirational journey means different things to different people. But, we tend to plan our trips around sites and experiences that will take your breath away. An inspirational journey is stumbling across a landscape with such incredible beauty it leaves you speechless. It’s watching the sun rise over the Rocky Mountains or glimpsing a mother bear play with her cubs in the wild. Whatever inspires you, you’ll find it here in Canada, and we create a journey that suits you. Whether it’s a luxury cruise, a self-drive expedition or wildlife tour, we’ve got it all covered.
Where will you take me?
You’ll find inspiration in every corner of Canada. You could explore the beauty of New England and tie it in with a trip to vibrant New York. You could discover the phenomenal power of Niagara Falls followed by a trip to the cultural melting pot of Toronto. And that’s just the east coast! Travel to the west to discover our tailor made Grizzly bear viewing trips on Vancouver Island. Of course, right in the heart of Canada is the very backbone of the country: the Canadian Rockies. The national parks here are home to some of the most inspirational sights on the planet. Not to mention some fine skiing and mountain trekking! Up north, you’ll find the snowy tundra of Alaska or see polar bears in Churchill. Every corner of Canada is buzzing with new experiences and wonder.
When is the best time to visit?
Canada oozes with inspiration all year round. In winter, you’ll wrap up warm and discover the snowy peaks in the Rockies. In the summer, our cities come alive with festivals and cultural celebrations. In part, it depends on what you want to experience. For example, grizzly bear viewing is best booked in Spring when they emerge from hibernation. If you want long, inspirational walks in the Rockies, it’s best to take a trip during the summer.
How will I see this beautiful country?
However you want. We offer a range of itineraries and travel options to suit everyone. For the freedom-loving explorers, we offer a self-drive experience. You can explore the country at your own pace, make stops wherever you want and fall in love slowly. You can stay in lodges and cabins along the way and get back to nature. For those who prefer a little more luxury, we can arrange business class flights, top hotels and luxury cruise options. Just reach out to one of our experts to find out more.
Why should I choose an inspirational holiday?
Because where else can you explore breath-taking scenery and watch bears and whales in their natural environment? Where else will you find exquisite peace and quiet than the Canadian Rockies? Canada is a destination that lives and breathes inspiration. You’ll get closer to nature, break from the monotony of real life and create memories that last forever.
