Canada 150, how will you celebrate?

Comment célébrer le 150e anniversaire du Canada?

You don’t need us to remind you that 2017 is a big year here, it’s Canada 150 – our 150th birthday! And while July 1 is sure to be a huge day right across the country, here in the travel business we’re celebrating with amazing Canadian travel inspirations all year long.

That’s why we’re helping you join the festivities is by planning and sourcing some of the most fun, interesting and meaningful trips to be had across Canada this year.

One of these – a surefire hit with Vision clients, always – is our special  Journey Through the Rockies hosted departure, an 11-day the combination of some of the best that BC and Alberta can offer, including a two days aboard the legendary Rocky Mountaineer train (in upgraded Gold Leaf service) and stays in those iconic Fairmont Hotels, the Chateau Lake Louise and Banff Springs. In all, the special escorted Vision tour will include the picturesque ski resort of Whistler plus Vancouver, Jasper, Lake Louise, Banff and Calgary. All with a “just right” combination of included sightseeing (such as a visit to the Colombia Icefield) and free time to explore on your own. One departure only: July 15 to 24 this year, priced at $5,209 per person double plus $260.45 taxes.

And you can make that journey even more special by combining it with a Vision Travel group cruise to Alaska Holland America’s Nieuw Amsterdam. Cruise and tour, from July 8 to 24, priced from $7,004 plus $528.29 taxes.

Or if our hospitable and scenic East Coast is more your style, why not see Newfoundland and Labrador in style with Globus for Canada 150? Their escorted tour is hugely popular with Canadians who love the chance to explore this province with newfound friends from around the world (and we’re betting there’s more than one opportunity to feel pretty proud about it too). The 12-day tour takes in many of this vast province’s charms including St. John’s, Trinity, Gros Morne National Park and even a day trip by ferry to Labrador. Tiny fishing villages and Mother Nature at her grandest, combined with that famed hospitality and humour! Priced at $3,189 (excluding airfare) – and you can take 5% off if you book by April 25. But hurry….several departure dates are already sold out.

Happy Canada 150!
