Intrepid backs great white hope
Intrepid Travel has recently launched a suite of new trips to Canada in 2018 in a bid to capitalise on the growing demand for new adventures to the country affectionately referred to as the Great White North. The last 12 months has witnessed 150% sales growth for Intrepid on its most popular Canadian trips, leading to a decision to introduce three brand new tours to the country including a 12-day US and Canada Discovery Winter package that features activities such as ice skating in Ottawa.
“These new trips let travellers experience the magic of a North American winter like a true local,” said Intrepid Travel’s regional director Asia Pacific, Brett Mitchell.
“With its pristine wilderness and friendly people, Canada has always been popular, but the ‘Justin Trudeau effect’ has made Canada even cooler this year.”
New itineraries also include a six-day Highlights of Vancouver Island adventure and 11-day Canadian Rockies and Northern Lights exploration.To take advantage of the lack of crowds and the beauty of the north in the winter, Intrepid has added new departures in the off season including December and January departures for its Canadian Rockies and Northern Lights tour.Encompassing the best of Canada from Lake Louise to Calgary, Jasper and Banff, the 11-day trip starts from $4,760 per person.
