Travel Challenge: Active break in Canada
Friday 22 June 2012
Each week, we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a 10-day active family adventure in Canada. Prices for a family of two adults and two children travelling together. Each package includes accommodation, flights from the UK departing on Saturday 21 July and car hire.
Includes Air Transat flights from Gatwick to Vancouver, a week at the Listel Hotel in Whistler and three nights at the Sandman Suites in Vancouver (both room only), with Peak2Peak gondola ride and whale-watching trip. "Get outdoors and close to nature, then enjoy Vancouver city," says Kathryn Munro of Canadian Affair (020-7616 9999; canadianaffair.com).
Includes Virgin flights from Heathrow to Vancouver, three nights at the Ramada Vancouver, four at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler and three at the Royal Scot Suite Hotel on Vancouver Island (all room only). Plus tree canopy walk, gondola ride and bear watching. "British Columbia's perfect for families," says Neil Jones of Virgin Holidays (0844 557 3859; virginholidays.co.uk).
Includes Air Canada flights from Heathrow to Calgary and mixed-board hotels in Calgary, Banff, Jasper, Clearwater, Whistler and Victoria. "Our self-drive 'Wonders of the Rockies' trip is great for first-time visitors. It includes a wildlife safari in Banff, a canoe trip at Whistler Wetlands and a whale-watching cruise," says Jemma Purvis of Kuoni (01306 747008; kuoni.co.uk).
