Expedition Cruising

Great Canadian Trails has chosen expedition partners who share our commitment to sustainable, responsible travel. They have outstanding safety records and use small, comfortable vessels that are ideally-suited to the environments in which they travel. These adventures are led by highly expert naturalist guides, and often feature cultural experiences on land, hosted by local communities. The focus is on nature, wildlife, culture, and learning. Expeditions take place in remote areas, offer daily shore excursions by foot, and often include options for additional activity such as kayaking, camping, zodiac excursions, photography workshops, and possibly even yoga, stand-up paddling, cycling, snorkelling and SCUBA.


Boat-based exploration allows us to visit places that are otherwise inaccessible or difficult to get to for land-based visitors, and is a wonderful compliment to our selection of adventures across the country.
