Globus family of brands is offering Canadians the opportunity for safe and experiential travel across Canadian soil. To begin this effort, Globus operated a Canadian Rockies Escape in October for Canadian travellers. Based on that experience, the company is launching two new Canadian escapes for 2021.
“Travellers driven by wanderlust do not need to cross oceans – or even borders – to enjoy the wonder and awe that travel implores,” said Chris Jones, director of marketing for the Globus family of brands.
“Our own Canadian backyard is full of beautiful national parks; culturally rich cities; tiny, historic towns and a world of fascination, waiting to be discovered. Our new itineraries cater to Canadians, inviting them to enjoy the splendor of the country. And, if successful, will showcase a pivot for us in focus and possibilities, opening even more regional vacations for locals in the New Year.”
The new tours unveiled this week for Canadian travellers are “Escapes”: Vacations operated during the off-season ensuring fewer crowds and milder temperatures.
The two new tours are:
West Coast Escape (5 days, priced from $1,279). Canadians will visit Vancouver and Victoria. On the trip, they will enjoy guided sightseeing through Vancouver’s scenic waterfront, Chinatown and Stanley Park before boarding a ferry crossing through the Gulf Islands to Victoria for a 3-night stay.
Rockies Escape (6 days, priced from $1,289). On this tour, travellers will explore Alberta’s Rocky Mountains. They will begin in the capital city of Edmonton for an overnight stay before continuing to Jasper to discover frozen waterfalls, ice caves and visit the Maligne Canyon of Jasper National Park.
“When travellers explore the world with Globus, they’re choosing a safer alternative to travelling on their own,” added Bishop.
“From expert Tour Directors and local drivers to vetted hotel and restaurant experiences, plus our extensive health and safety protocols, we are dedicated to providing travellers a stress-free getaway, leaving them free to have fun and enjoy Canadian discoveries, along the way.
On these Escapes, Globus has implemented all of the enhanced safety protocols included in the new On-Trip Assurance developed by its global Health & Safety Team.
