Profile Last Updated: January 08, 2009
Great Expeditions offers a wide range of water-based tours, some more physically challenging than others. Options include the chance to canoe the Bowron Lakes or sea kayak around Desolation Sound, the Gulf Island, Johnstone Strait or the Queen Charlotte Islands. There's also an opportunity to sail around the Queen Charlotte Islands. Those needing more of an adrenaline rush may want to opt for the river rafting expedition to the Tatshenshini or Upper Alsek.
Or by Land
Great Expeditions also co-ordinates trekking programs as well as independent itineraries to China, Tibet, Sikkim, Bhutan and Nepal.
Small is Good
Unlike many tour operators, Great Expeditions limits activities to groups of six to 18. A group such a size is small enough to ensure the locals and wildlife aren't overly disturbed, yet big enough for everyone to enjoy the group dynamic.
