Manitoba

Quebec

Arctic coastline, stunning lakes, fishing, polar bears and beluga whales combined with genuine Canadian hospitality is truly unique to Manitoba. Every summer, adventurers view, snorkel with or kayak alongside the thousands of beluga whales that fill the Churchill and Seal Rivers in northern Manitoba. It is the most accessible place in North America to see polar bears in their natural habitat, specifically from mid-October – November.

Quebec is a province steeped in tradition and history. It is a former French colony that has managed to retain and build upon its strong links to French history, lifestyle and culture. Store fronts and street signs inform in French first and English second, giving the province a European flair uncommon to the rest of North America. Quebec City remains the only North American city still fortified by its original city walls.

Using this brochure

Newfoundland and Labrador

We understand that you want all of the options before you decide how you want to travel – so here are a few ways we’re making your research less time-consuming. At Anderson Vacations, we pride ourselves on offering each client a customized itinerary. Whether you want fully escorted, self-drive, rail, adventure, hiking, adrenaline, culture or cuisine, we will be able to assist you in planning your trip. Our Canada and Alaska specialists are passionate and knowledgeable about the destination and look forward to creating the best possible experiences for you within your budget. Here we have just a few of the descriptions of the type of travel experience we can offer in this brochure to assist you in deciding how you want to explore.

Independent Travel Packages These itineraries give you the flexibility to create your own tailor-made vacation. They are perfect for the traveller who likes to travel independently but have it pre-arranged. Through our experience we combine local transportation, sightseeing, accommodation, activities and attractions together to ensure you have the best possible experience for your budget and time.

Small Group Touring Becoming increasingly popular is small group touring. On many of our itineraries we limit the group size to 20 participants. This allows you to have a more intimate experience, make new friends and avoid the inconveniences of travelling with a large group of co-travellers. You see more at an easier pace, enjoy the peace and quiet of that special place you’ve always dreamed of, and actually hear the local guide! With small group travel, you can easily venture “off the beaten path,” or visit interesting places while getting around by special means.

Accommodation Options The vast majority of our accommodation choices reflect our clients’ desire for clean, well-located, 3 and 4-star properties with private bathroom facilities. We feature a variety of accommodations, from city hotels to boutique and adventure lodges. Many itineraries feature a choice of moderate, superior and deluxe category options. Should the accommodation of your preferred category be unavailable, we will suggest suitable alternatives. Though all our hotels, inns and lodges are carefully chosen, our tours are not about accommodation. Hotels are for laying down your weary head; they shouldn’t be the main focus on tour.

Unique Lodges and Wildlife Canada and Alaska feature an array of wildlife such as moose, bear, orca, beluga whales and polar bears. You can choose to stay in very unique lodges which allow up close and personal sightings of wildlife in their natural habitat.

Self-Drive Packages

Ranches

Self-drive is a great way to explore at your own pace and it gives you the flexibility to access areas that local tours or public transportation do not go. Driving in Canada is easy – the roads are well-maintained and clearly marked, making for excellent driving conditions. We combine your car rental with pre-arranged accommodation, activities and sightseeing, ensuring you don’t miss out on anything but giving you time to explore at your leisure.

Join us in the foothills of Alberta, British Columbia and the Rocky Mountains for a ranch experience with the many ranchers who live and work in these regions. We can offer a taste of life in rural Canada or even a week-long horseback trip, riding alongside the cowboys.

City Breaks and Mini-Packages We have put together these packages to provide you with great suggestions of what you can do when you are visiting each city or destination. We will link these together with a train, coach, flight or car to create your own custom itinerary.

Fishing Vancouver Island, Alaska and Saskatchewan are renowned for fishing. Let experienced guides and captains show you the hot spots. We have a variety of packages available for all the various fishing types with accommodation from high-end luxury lodges to more economical rustic stays.

Fully Escorted Travel We present to you in this brochure a selection of the wide range of fully escorted tours that we can offer. You will have the benefit of a hassle-free journey as your Tour Leader takes care of all of the details. This allows you to sit back, relax and enjoy seeing the new sights while making new friends as you explore the best of Canada and Alaska.

Customized Group Touring Whether you are a special interest, sports, student, family or small group travelling together, our group specialist team can assist you with pre-planning your itinerary. This includes your accommodation, sightseeing, transportation, local guides, meals, and unique experiences. We will plan your tour efficiently and professionally. Bonavista Peninsula, Newfoundland

Regina, Saskatchewan

ANDERSON VACATIONS

or smaller towns we book the best possible accommodation available. Though all our hotels, inns and lodges are carefully chosen, our tours are not about accommodation. Hotels are for laying down your weary head after a day of memorable travel experiences; they shouldn’t be the main focus on tour. A full list of the accommodation on each tour is available on request.

Small Group Touring Becoming increasingly popular is Small Group Touring. On many of our itineraries we work with smaller vehicles and driver guides and limit the group size to 20 participants. This allows the group to have a more intimate experience, make new friends and to avoid the inconveniences of travelling with a large group of cotravellers. You see more at an easier pace, enjoy the peace and quiet of that special place you’ve always dreamed of, and actually hear the local guide! With small group travel, you can easily venture “off the beaten path,” or visit interesting places while getting around by special means. Small Group Touring features activities that will enrich your travel memories, and minimize the time at sightseeing stops, allowing the group to see more or arrive at their destination earlier.

Customized Group Touring Whether you are a special interest, sports, student, family or small group travelling together, our group specialist team can assist you with pre-planning your itinerary. This includes your accommodation, sightseeing, transportation, local guides, meals, and unique experiences. We will logistically operate your tour efficiently and professionally.

Transportation In addition to our commitment to service, we utilize some of the most modern motor coaches in Canada. We can provide sedans, limousines, touring vans, 21, 29 or 56 passenger coaches. On the larger coaches, we provide late model coaches equipped with the latest amenities including, TV/DVD, public address system, stereo, restroom and reclining seats.

Winter Experience

Over 150 years ago, an expedition led by Sir John Franklin set out to find the “Northwest Passage”, a route connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans through the Arctic Ocean. The expedition's two vessels and all its men disappeared, sparking an enduring mystery that has intrigued and gripped the imagination of Canadians ever since. A new chapter in this tale was written in September 2014, when a joint government / private expedition located the final resting place of the HMS Erebus (one of Franklin's lost ships), in the frigid waters of the Victoria Strait. In this Arctic voyage, you will join One Ocean Expeditions as they navigate their modern expedition vessel through the very same waters and wonder about the fate of these early Arctic explorers.

Edmonton Festival City

There are theories. Maybe it’s our northern home, where for years we learned to make our own fun. Maybe it’s a legacy of entrepreneurs dreaming up oddities: the continent’s first and wildest Fringe theatre festival, a shopping mall that once had more submarines than the Canadian navy. We’re a big city with small town values; a vibrant urban centre in the heart of wilderness. From close encounters with freeroaming bison to surfing indoors to taking your taste buds on a journey to some of the hottest craft beer taprooms, hyper-local bistros and indie bakeries in Canada, you’ll find there’s a uniqueness to how Edmontonians do ordinary things. One thing’s for sure – if you’re looking for an unforgettable, original experience you’ll find it here. Peruse a list of activities and poke around ExploreEdmonton.com.

The bears are free to come and go as they please. You will be transported with a mini bus to the foot of a secure and comfortable viewing tower, always accompanied by certified guides. Once in the tower, you will be asked to be very quiet (whisper instead of talking). For the next two hours, you are in the bear's world.

On occasion, you will see Mama Bear nurse her cubs; something you will never see elsewhere. So be sure to bring your camera/videocamera to capture this rare opportunity. Note: Due to the nature of this activity, the minimum age is five years old. If you have questions about the bears, Richard will do his best to answer you, all while whispering. This is an adventure you will never forget! The bears are waiting for you!

Commissioned by the Shorefast Foundation and designed by Newfoundland-born-and-raised architect Todd Saunders, the Inn has quickly garnered an international reputation for exceptional, embodied, place-specific hospitality and bold, thoughtful, humanistic and contemporary design. Situated along Iceberg Alley, all 29 one-of-a-kind guest suites feature dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto the wildest and most powerful ocean on the planet. Most suites have a wood-burning fireplace stove; all are furnished with quiet luxuries and handmade furniture and quilts – a stimulating relief from the numbing uniformity of modern times. The island’s still-wild world has caribou to track, hills of berries to forage, nature trails to explore and birds and sea life to behold. The awardwinning Inn is a community asset – 100 per cent of operating surpluses are reinvested into the community. Package includes: two nights of accommodation, all meals, and a half-day Fogo Island orientation excursion with a local Community Host. Ground transfer rates between Gander International Airport, Newfoundland and the Farewell ferry to Fogo Island are available upon request.

Quirpon Island Inn

Unique Lodge

Rugged Beauty Boat Tours

This 4-star lightkeeper's home on a deserted island overlooking "Iceberg Alley" at the northern tip of Newfoundland has the longest iceberg season. Killer whales and humpbacks are common and routinely come in so close to the shore that you can touch them. Relax in the indoor whale watching station – read your book in comfort and keep an ear open for the whales calling for your attention. Yes, you can get tea delivered if you can’t tear yourself away. Walk the island, then lay on the helipad and watch the Northern Lights. A zodiac boat tour and guided kayak tour allow you to visit the whales and icebergs up close!

Travel by sea from New Bonaventure to the enchanting and long-abandoned communities of Kerley's Harbour and Ireland's Eye. Back in the boat, travel across the sound and through the fjord entrance to the deserted community of British Harbour, first settled in the 1800s. Choose to return by boat or hike over highlands and alongside tumbling streams back to New Bonaventure. Bruce Miller is your guide and skipper – a fisherman born in Kerley's Harbour with tales of the life of these communities. This tour is a journey through time.

Quirpon Island Inn is located next to L'Anse aux Meadows, the UNESCO World Heritage Viking site.

Daily tour times are 10am and 2pm. Tours run approximately three hours. Rugged Beauty Boat Tours not only operates scheduled daily tours, but can also arrange specialty tours to fit your needs.

Price Guarantee: Prices in this brochure are based on costs and exchange rates as of July 1, 2016.

Travel Insurance: Anderson Vacations STRONGLY RECOMMENDS adequate travel insurance to all persons travelling to all destinations. Travel insurance can be purchased to cover penalties in the event a customer needs to cancel or change their travel plans due to unforeseen circumstances. Travel insurance can also provide medical and emergency assistance protection during travel, as well as loss and delay coverage. Visit your travel agent, travel wholesaler or call one of our insurance specialists for more details. If a client does not carry travel insurance, all hospital and medical expenses are the client/traveller’s responsibilities. No refunds for unused travel arrangements will be provided in the case of medical emergency.

Visas/passports: Holding valid travel documents is the responsibility of the traveller. A passport valid for six months beyond date
of travel is required for entry into Canada and Alaska. Visa-exempt foreign nationals are expected to have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. If you request an eTA you can apply for this online. Please discuss this with your travel agent or one of our specialists at time of booking.

Documentation:

Cruise line, Rocky Mountaineer and other specialty supplier deposit and final payment schedules over and above our standard requirements will
be passed on to you and discussed with you prior to booking any such arrangements.

Travel vouchers, tickets, departure details and supplier addresses will be provided as part of our final tour documentation. All documentation is sent electronically. These are tickets and as good as cash. Lost vouchers will require a $50.00 processing fee to resend.

Changes to reservations:

Is there a charge for small groups (under ten participants)?

If you wish to change your reservation after confirmation has been processed and deposit applied, we will do our utmost to satisfy your request. A service charge of $100.00 per change will be levied to cover extra administrative and communication costs. Upgrades will be charged at the rate of the upgrade.

We pride ourselves on providing “a small shared group experience.” In the event that we have fewer than ten participants on a tour we will offer a “small-group surcharge” to ensure that the tour runs as scheduled. This fee, which is up to 15% of the “land” portion of the tour, will be offered to you as an option to continue with the trip. This fee will cover the costs associated with handling a smaller group.

Separate supplier change fees may apply depending on the arrangements booked. Any supplier change fees will be passed on to the client.

Cancellations, refunds and transfers: Should you need to cancel your trip, you (or your authorized travel agent) must notify us in writing by letter, e-mail, or by fax immediately. Deposits are nonrefundable, though if you cancel more than 60 days prior to tour departure date, the deposit paid is transferable to any other tour taken within 12 months of the original tour start date, minus a $100 per person transfer fee. Less than 60 days prior to departure, all monies paid are 100% non-refundable, nontransferable. Name changes are not permitted. Insurable risks may be covered under trip cancellation insurance policies, if purchased. We are not able to grant partial refunds for any unused trip arrangements – voluntarily missed meals, sightseeing, transport, etc – after the trip has commenced, or any refunds to trip members who do not complete any portion of the itinerary for whatever reason. All air tickets are non-refundable and valid only for the flight(s) indicated. We may cancel departures if forced to do so by circumstances such as war, civil or political unrest or what is commonly referred to as force majeure. In these instances we will refund all passengers in full if cancellation takes place more than 60 days prior to tour start date. If cancellation occurs within the 60 day period, we will offer to postpone your trip to another similar departure within 12 months of the original tour start date; or, if circumstances do not permit, an alternative will be offered at that time. We will not be responsible for costs associated with re-issuance or extension of visas, airline change fees, or for any compensation. We strongly recommend that all travellers purchase trip cancellation insurance, either through Anderson Vacations or elsewhere, as this may provide coverage under such circumstances. If we cancel your tour due to insufficient enrolment, we will endeavour to find an alternative tour for you. If this is not acceptable, all monies paid will be refunded in full and will constitute full settlement. We will not be responsible for any expenses incurred, such as visas, independently purchased airfare, or any other compensation. Notice of cancellation due to insufficient enrolment in any program will be given approximately 60 days prior to departure.

Please note: Some suppliers’ cancellation policies can vary, including cruiselines and rail products
for example. You will be responsible for all additional cancellation fees imposed by such suppliers over and above the Anderson Vacations cancellation fees. These cancellation fees are required to offset booking, communication, and administrative charges which have already been incurred by us, suppliers and your travel agent. Cancellation fees imposed by suppliers and travel agents are beyond our control and you should check with your travel agent regarding what cancellation fees may be applicable. Regrettably cancellation charges cannot
be waived. There will be no exceptions. No refunds on unused services after departure from the original city. Cancellation insurance is recommended on all packages to avoid penalties.
