HIKE AROUND CANADA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - Escape - - NEWS -

AD­VEN­TURE travel com­pany World Ex­pe­di­tions has un­veiled a new range of Cana­dian ac­tive hol­i­days for trav­ellers wish­ing to ex­plore the coun­try’s great out­doors. The hol­i­days in­clude a se­lec­tion of both guided and self-guided hik­ing and cy­cling ad­ven­tures that in­clude ac­com­mo­da­tion, lug­gage trans­fers, bike rentals, as well as com­pre­hen­sive maps and route notes. Most of the hol­i­day itin­er­ar­ies in­cor­po­rate parts of the nearly 24,000km Trans Canada Trail, a coast-to-coast net­work sched­uled for com­ple­tion by 2017 that will be­come the world’s long­est recre­ational trail. The hol­i­days will be of­fered through Great Cana­dian Trails, a new di­vi­sion based out of World Ex­pe­di­tions’ Ot­tawa of­fice. World Ex­pe­di­tions chief ex­ec­u­tive Sue Bad­yari said it had been a long-held am­bi­tion to op­er­ate a range of ad­ven­ture hol­i­days in Canada. “Our trav­ellers will en­joy the free­dom to travel at their pace,” Bad­yari said. “For ex­am­ple, they can cy­cle across Prince Ed­ward Is­land with all of the lo­gis­tics or­gan­ised, com­plete an end-to-end hike along On­tario’s Bruce Penin­sula with­out need­ing to camp or carry a full pack, or hike a re­mote and rugged stretch along the Fundy coast car­ry­ing just a day pack.” More: Visit world­ex­pe­di­tions.com or ph 1300 720 000.
