Gap Adventures Teams with Canada Goose to Launch New Polar Adventure Tours

1 February 2010

Toronto – Gap Adventures, the world leader in small group adventure travel, is proud to announce a hot new partnership with cold-weather apparel maker Canada Goose. The adventure pioneers have teamed to create Canada Goose Adventure Tours, providing exploration-loving travellers a unique opportunity to experience some of the farthest flung regions of the globe in style.

"Canada Goose Adventure Tours are a truly creative addition to our already strong repertoire of Polar tours," said Gap Adventures Founder Bruce Poon Tip. "This cutting-edge partnership offers our loyal travellers the chance to step into the cold and experience the best in sustainable, authentic tourism in ways they could once have only imagined."

Canada Goose Adventures introduce globetrotters to the intriguing people, dramatic landscapes and unforgettable wildlife of the Arctic and Antarctic regions on voyages to a wide range of countries including Canada, the United States, Argentina, Sweden and Finland. Trips start at $3569 CAD per person for the 11-day Patagonia Winter Activity Week. Other unforgettable adventures include the six-day Norway High Arctic Adventure, the six-day Polar Bears, Dogsledding and Aurora Borealis adventure across Canada's Great White North. These exhilarating cold-weather expeditions feature a host of breathtaking activities including snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, ice climbing and tundra buggy polar bear viewing.

With an average group size of about 10 travellers, Canada Goose Adventure Tours are led by historians and naturalists who shed light on awe-inspiring natural phenomena such as the Aurora Borealis. The tours also offer travellers the opportunity to warm up to some very cool accommodations including igloos and ice hotels, all while sporting a Canada Goose parka as a take-home reminder of their fantastic foray onto the frozen Polar tundra. Those Canada Goose adventurers who sail to Antarctica on specific departures in March 2011, aboard the Gap Adventures ship, the M/S Expedition will receive an even more unique souvenir - a Canada Goose parka designed in conjunction with Gap Adventures' crack team of cold-weather designers.

Canada Goose Adventure Tours offer amazing flexibility and are customizable to suit a broad spectrum of traveller preferences and budgets - ideal for groups ranging from single travellers and couples, to families. For more information, visit
