Our tailor-made trips are crafted with meticulous research, superb itinerary design, and handpicked accommodations. We’ve designed them to include the most fascinating routes and must-do experiences.

Let us introduce you to the majesty of the Canadian Rockies, to the tundra of the high Arctic, the wildlife wonderlands of Denali and Jasper. There is no time like the present to initiate plans for your Canada and Alaska adventure! Neil Rodgers Managing Director

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT ON OUR JOURNEYS... CULTURE & HERITAGE There’s no better way to experience a region than by immersing yourself in local culture. Gain a genuine appreciation of a place, it’s people and landscapes by learning directly from those who truly understand it. Meet and stay with locals, explore historical sites and marketplaces, and eat traditional delicacies for a sincere, rich experience.

WILDLIFE & WILDERNESS Getting up close and personal with wildlife that you’ve only seen in magazines can be a surprisingly touching experience. Witness animals in their natural environment - often far-flung, breathtaking backdrops. By exploring mountains, lakes, gorges, plains and rainforests you’ll feel an honest connection to a place and its wild inhabitants.

ACTIVE ADVENTURES Our adventure journeys are created to offer a rewarding journey without needing a wealth of previous travel experience. Enjoy all the comforts and conveniences such as exceptional cuisine and friendly porters to carry and transfer luggage. Many of our adventures could be found in a ‘hard adventure’ category, but physical exertion is not the aim. And you can rest assured there’ll be a comfortable night’s sleep at the end of an active day.

DAY 5 CHURCHILL Enjoy another full-day Polar Rover excursion to explore the subarctic landscape and watch wildlife. Tonight, if skies are clear, visit a heated Aurora Dome in hopes of witnessing the northern lights through the 360-degree Plexiglass roof.

The Hudson Bay Inuit see the lights as the magical display of their ancestors’ souls dancing in the sky. (B)(L)(D)

Those Travel Products are provided subject to those suppliers’ terms, conditions and limitations (some of which may exclude or limit liability in respect of death, injury, delay, loss or damage to persons and/or effects) and we accept no responsibility for them nor do we make or give any warranty or representation as to their standard, quality or fitness for any particular purpose. Any legal recourse you may have in respect of those Travel Products is against those suppliers and not against us. 3.

Prices are: (a) specified in New Zealand dollars (unless stated otherwise) and are subject to change without notice; (b) indicative only and subject to change until all of your booking details have been provided to us, we have confirmed your booking and you have paid in full; and (c) per person based on twin share for travel during low season. “From” Prices The expression “from” with respect to a price means the lowest price for the Travel Product we believe is available based on costs and exchange rates as at 22 August 2018, based on information we have received from suppliers.

If there are any increase in such taxes, charges or supplier rates or any currency fluctuation which increase the price of your booking, we reserve the right to change the price you must pay by including the additional charges or amount (together with any applicable service fee and GST) at any time prior to and including the date of your departure, even if we have received full payment from you. We will notify you of any such price changes that result in your travel arrangements being materially different from those prior to the change being effected and in respect of which we have already accepted your deposit or full payment.
