Nunavut - Hike Baffin Island

Self-Guided Trip

7 days from CA$1990

Self-Guided Trip

6 days from CA$1390

Self-Guided Trip

7 days from CA$1690

Physical Rating: Leisurely / Moderate

Canada's Prince Edward Island is lovingly nicknamed the Garden of the Gulf for good reason.

Algonquin Winter Adventure

Small Group Holiday

6 days from CA$1799

Physical Rating: Leisurely

Winter in Ontario's Algonquin area is a completely different experience from summer. Silence reigns in the woods, frozen lakes and snow-covered trees reflect abundant sunshine and everywhere you go, animal tracks abound. During your stay in a log cabin you get to enjoy the Great Outdoors through dog sledding, snowshoeing and skiing. This is winter in Canada at its best.
