With a mission on making Canada better known to Canadians and to the world, the Royal Canadian Geographical Society is collaborating with Canadian and international travel partners to draw readers off the pages of Canadian Geographic magazine and into the field through immersive travel.
The Society launched a new venture Tuesday called Canadian Geographic Adventures which features a selection of curated travel experiences that it calls its Designated Travel Collection.
The small-group tours that make up the Designated Travel Collection include multi-day, locally-guided, experiences in each of Canada’s province and territories and around the world with a strong focus on sustainability and the celebration of people and place.
Each trip hosts a notable RCGS Ambassador, adding incredible insight into the Society and Canadian Geographic, and each travel operator within the Designated Travel Collection supports RCGS programming with a contribution from every booking.
“Geography is a vast, interesting and inclusive paradigm that explores the connections between people and place,” said John Geiger, CEO of the RCGS, in a release. “We aim to further that connection by giving Canadians a chance to experience first-hand the incredible stories we cover in Canadian Geographic magazine through guided multi-day adventures hosted by an RCGS Ambassador and partnered with exceptional operators across the country. This robust offering will form the Designated Travel Collection.”
