PORT CREDIT, ON — Adventure Canada is inviting agents to join them for adventures on the high seas during its 2020 High Arctic Explorer expedition fam.
Travelling aboard the 198-passenger Ocean Endeavour, agents will explore Canada’s Arctic on this 12-day adventure from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland to Qausuittuq (Resolute), Nunavut. Highlights include watching icebergs calve, hiking on Devon Island (the largest uninhabited island on earth), spotting wildlife in Tallurutiup Imanga (Canada’s largest and newest Marine Protected Area), and visiting the Franklin Expedition graves at Beechey Island. Agents will also enjoy an Inuit cultural welcome at Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet).
The fam takes place from July 31-Aug. 11, 2020, and is priced at US$3,175, a 75% savings of the retail rate. Selected agents will receive a berth in a category 3 shared cabin, charter flights from Ottawa and returning to Toronto, a complimentary expedition jacket, special access permits, entry and park fees, guided activities, sightseeing and community visits, interactive workshops, all shipboard meals and more. Pre- and post-tour hotels, travel insurance, gratuities, onboard expenses and option excursions are not includes.
Agents may submit an application from now through March 31, 2020.
This latest fam follows the success of the 2019 High Arctic Explorer, during which 19 travel agents climbed onboard the Ocean Endeavor to experience one of the company’s flagship expeditions.
“Adventure Canada really does know how to look after their guests and make every day unique and special,” said Kerryn O’Neal, a travel advisor with Dreamlines in Australia. “Their knowledge of the destinations and the educated resource team made for an incredible journey, one I will never be able to top.”
