Innovative, Cultural and Casual Vacations!

Live your dreams while learning to scuba dive in Costa Rica, mountain biking on a volcano in Sicily, skiing on a glacier under the imposing peak of the Matterhorn followed by a traditional fondue around a cozy fireplace or perhaps challenging yourself by back country skiing to a secluded lodge in the Selkirks of B.C. We can also help you arrange a softer ADVENTOUR like staying at a resort in the Dominican Republic where your adventure is venturing into the ocean to snorkel briefly and then recuperate on the beach. Maybe hiking in Northern England followed by a pint of Ale is more your style? We can also arrange a multi-sport vacation Let us fulfill your fantasies.

ADVENTOURUS will provide a stress free vacation where someone else has thought of all your needs and made the appropriate arrangements so you are relaxed from the start. We pride ourselves on:

* attention to small details

* coordination of great experiences

On a trip to Las Leñas, Argentina, Jacqui was inspired by a woman who turned her dreams into reality by starting her own ski company.

 Travel Tips

 

Travel insurance should top every traveler’s list. Don’t leave home without it! Medical insurance for any out-of-Canada trip is important (yes, even for a long weekend across the border). Accidents can happen to even the fittest individuals. Too many horror stories exist of families who forgot to buy it, or “didn’t think it mattered this time”. Don’t be a victim!

 

It’s a small outlay for peace of mind, and a worry-free vacation. And while you’re at it, buy trip cancellation insurance, too.
Renew any medical prescriptions you may need before you go. It’s not always easy to get them filled when you’re away.

 

Cancel your newspapers.
Leave your itinerary with a neighbour, friend, or relative (or all three) in case of emergency. In this age of increased security, immigration departments around the world are tightening up on passport control. Make sure you passport is valid for at least six months after your date of travel. (Renew it early, if it expires before that date.) Remember, it’s not the responsibility of the Passport Office to send renewal reminders… it is our responsibility to check the dates before we leave. The wise traveller carries a passport each time he/she leaves Canada. Yes, even to the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
Notify Canada Post that you’ll be away.
Buy some foreign currency for you destination. Even if you’re relying on travellers cheques or bank cards, it’s useful to have at least a small amount of cash on hand.
Try not to keep your credit cards, cash, traveller’s cheques, passport, and other identification in the same place. That way, if your wallet is lost or stolen, you won’t be left without I.D. or money. Take advantage of your hotel’s safety deposit box for valuables. Make two copies of all important documents and traveller’s cheque numbers before you leave home, and leave one copy with someone you can contact in an emergency.
