A NORWEGIAN IN CANADA

Great feedback from a Norwegian client in Canada. One thing our Norwegian traveller did NOT see was another Norwegian – apart from his party. What he did meet was captivating wilderness and wildlife, along with good hotels, good food and good service…


Bears were one of the thrills…

BEAR NEWS

”On our way from Lake Louise to Jasper today we had to stop for a Black Bear who wanted to cross  the road. That’s how polite we should be, but unfortunately we could not get our camera out in time,`” commented our Norwegian traveler. But he did get this image...


"Blackcomb-Whistler Peak 2 Peak Gondola   World’s longest cable on a gondola – 3.03km – and the highest point above ground is 436m it says in Guiness Book of Records…we could see a small black dot 400m below us, a Black Bear enjoying the riverside..."


OVERALL REVIEW

Written to his Select Collection travel advisor Ada in Oslo:

We are back from Canada - and I just wanted to thank for job well done from your side.
Everything worked out just brilliant. Dreamliner with Air Canada on the way over was very good. Car and hotels also excellent. 
The highlight when it comes to the food / drink menu was in Lake Louise but all hotels kept a very high standard. 
We found great service and friendly staff in all places - and an experience to travel through the Rocky Mountains.
Absolutely to recommend to others.
I think it's the first time I've been on vacation for 14 days abroad without coming across a single other Norwegian.

ON THE THEME OF WILDLIFE




Moose aplenty...


Wise owl...

Roaring water

Magnificent Blackcomb

Jasper

And despite all the very snowy mountain landscapes- a winery among the vineyards of an old goldfield.
