Adventure Canada breaks more ice with Australia
Remote northern travel specialist Adventure Canada was recently in Australia to talk up its latest 2019/20 brochure featuring itineraries exploring the remote regions of Atlantic Canada.
The company’s product manager Sam Patton told travelBulletin that its Northern Canada packages represented one of its strongest points of difference in the market. “From meeting the local Inuit peoples to spotting polar bears from the bow, there is really nothing like it anywhere else on planet Earth,” Patton said.
Travelling aboard the Ocean Endeavor, one of the slated itineraries provides travellers with the opportunity to complete a circumnavigation of Newfoundland, where they will have the chance to hike the tablelands in the UNESCO world heritage Gros Morne National Park, visit remote outpost fishing villages, and tour the French island of Saint-Pierre.
The trip starts and terminates in Newfoundland’s capital of St John’s and is available either from 2-12 October 2019 or 26 June to 06 July 2020 with prices ranging from US$3,395-US$16,095 per person.
Another trip listed in Adventure Canada’s 2020 schedule is the Mighty Saint Lawrence itinerary which tours four Canadian provinces and Saint-Pierre. Highlights of the cruise includes observing the stunning red sandstone cliffs of the Magdalen Islands, Zodiac trips to Perce Rock, and witnessing the unique birdlife that reside on Bonaventure Island.
The Australian appetite to traverse the remote northern reaches of Canada is one that continues to show signs of improvement, claims Adventure Canada.
“We have seen a steady increase in Australian travellers to theCanadianarctic over the last three years,” the company’s director of business development Matthew James Swan said.
“It is now our thirdlargest market afterCanadaand the United States with Australians making up 10% of our clientele,” he added.
