Citing an Ipsos study conducted for Global News that found only 20% of polled Canadian indicated they would travel outside the country this year, Omega says it has pivoted its attention to in-country travel.
“Experiences are the preferred option for many travellers as they provide a more personalized way of engaging with people, places and cultures. And there is no shortage of opportunities here in Canada,” said Jason Sarracini, Managing Director, Omega Tours.
Experiences range from a one-hour helicopter tour of the 1000 Islands to a 10-day stay in St. John's and Newfoundland's outport communities. There are also wildlife excursions in the Great Bear Rain Forest, an adult summer camp-type Algonquin adventure, the Canadian Rockies by bike, a trip to Whitehorse to see the Northern Lights and more.
“We hope our new travel experiences will provide residents who may have decided to forego vacations a reason to reconsider,” Sarracini said.
