Welcome to the website of Classic Canadian Tours. We look forward to the opportunity to host you on one of our upcoming Canadian Tours.
In 2017 we have a strong tour line-up. Our signature fall tour, the very popular one day Polar Bear Safari offers excursions from Calgary, Edmonton and Saskatoon to Churchill. We are very pleased to offer 3 departures to the West Coast Grizzly Bear Adventure Tour to the Khutzeymateen Valley, near Prince Rupert, BC this summer. This tour is similar to our Polar Bear Safari in that it is an efficient one day tour that combines land and sea, to a spectacular remote region of Canada.
We will offer two Beluga Whale Tours this summer; July 6-7 and August 26-27. For each departure we will take a group on a weekend excursion from Calgary to Churchill to see thousands of beluga whales in the Churchill River. During our excursion we will also tour the Fort Prince of Wales and explore the 5 ecosystems during a guided culture and heritage tour. Churchill has a lot to offer during the summer.
Our team works diligently to develop incredible tours that show off Canadian geography, culture and wildlife. We hope that you will join us for a truly Canadian experience that is efficient and comfortable.
