19 October 2012

Gaze at the glittering Northern Lights, glide by monstrous glaciers, and meet great grizzly bears - Adventure World releases 27 new expeditions in Canada, Alaska and USA.

From chilling out in an ice hotel, to hiking through majestic mountain ranges, to viewing an old-fashioned Western rodeo - Canada, Alaska and USA are lands of spectacular vistas, urban jungles, wild ice plains, and breath-taking adventures aplenty.

Leading New Zealand travel company, Adventure World – who have been crafting tailor-made journeys to the world’s most beautiful and exotic destinations for over 25 years – has just launched 27 new tours that traverse the three vast terrains, all packed into the pages of the company’s new 2013 Canada, Alaska & USA brochure. 

Designed specifically for New Zealand travellers seeking distinctive travel experiences, the 2013 Canada, Alaska & USA brochure launches a raft of new ways to see these destinations, with heli-hiking excursions and chartered plane journeys added to the menu for the first time, and with additional dog sledding adventures, tundra buggy expeditions and a range of self-drive itineraries.

In addition to the existing tours, the 2013 brochure also features a new array of wildlife encounters - including camping in the heart of Orca territory, and a close-up encounter with the elusive and rare Kermode Bear at Spirit Bear Lodge - as well as an expanded range of Alaska packages, more small group adventures and, for the first time, including ski and snowboard packages in North America in the consolidated product.
