Why travel with us ?


Value & Peace of Mind

Relax, it’s included. We cater to small groups and highlight quality. True value is paying for everything up front and then being able to indulge in the experience, not the details of paying as you go. If something does go astray like airline strikes, hospital visits, finding an ATM or even getting a tooth pulled, your Journey Manager is there to help. Ask the guests who have travelled with us 5, 10, 30 or 45 times. We take great pride in having the highest guest return rate in Canada.


Friendly, Knowledgeable Staff

Each year our staff experience our unique journeys personally. As we only sell what we create, you are speaking with the experts when you call or visit. From our friendly office staff, to meeting you at Toronto airport, flying with you, managing your entire journey and helping you settle into your private car home, the details are ours to arrange and yours to enjoy. More often than not, Jerry and Anneka Van Dyke are at the airport to greet you with a personal hello.

Spectacular Fjords of the World
Fjords are what remain of eons of erosion by glaciers from the ice age, as they crept down fluvial valleys, their huge weight deepening the river bed. The result are steep-sided, narrow bays that extend far inland.
