Intrepid Travel is launching new trips to Canada for 2018 in response to growing demand for the Great White North, which has seen sales on popular trips increase by more than 150% in the past year.
Winter trips are also on Intrepid’s 2018 hot-list, with three brand new trips into the North American winter added to the new range, including the new 12-day US and Canada Discovery Winter trip which includes the magic of a white Christmas in New York, ice skating in Ottawa and a snowshoe hike in Vermont.
“With its pristine wilderness and friendly people, Canada has always been popular, but the ‘Justin Trudeau effect’ has made Canada even cooler this year. These new trips let travellers experience the magic of a North American winter like a true local,” says Brett Mitchell, Intrepid Travel’s Regional Director Asia Pacific.
Intrepid’s new North America program now offers more than 34 unique itineraries from Chicago to Calgary including the first dedicated tour of Victoria Island.
Intrepid Travel recently announced that it would double its carbon offsetting on all trips to the United States, in response to President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement. This increased commitment to supporting sustainable tourism in the United States includes the new range of 2018 trips.
