Globus Spotlights Canada for a Close-to-Home Travel Comeback

LITTLETON, Colorado – July 21, 2021 – There’s so much to see, this side of the sea. From the sweeping views of the Gaspé Peninsula to the sparkling lakes of the Rockies; the floating icebergs of Newfoundland to famous fromageries of Charlevoix and cobblestone avenues of Québec City to sensational scenery of British Columbia, Canada offers a world of wonder, just over the border. And now, upon news that Canada is opening to fully vaccinated American travelers on August 9, 2021, Globus and Cosmos are spotlighting opportunities for travelers to discover far from ordinary experiences, close to home. 

Here are five (5) Globus Canadian vacations that provide travelers with European flair:

  • Majestic Rockies (11 days). Dreaming of spectacular Switzerland? Enjoy the majestic Rockies instead! While scenic Switzerland is spectacular, nothing will lift spirits like the blue skies and blue waters – not to mention, the soaring peaks – of the Canadian Rockies. Breathtaking views abound on this vacation in our own backyard! Great Resorts of the Canadian Rockies (7 days) offers travelers another, great option.
  • Québec in Depth with the Gaspé Peninsula (11 days). Fantasizing about France, but looking for a close-to-home getaway? Canada’s Gaspé Peninsula will make you gasp with delight! Follow your French fantasies – and your nose – to the croissant-scented, café-lined promenades of Québec City. Tune into the music-filled streets of Montréal and set your eyes to the sweeping views of the Gaspé Peninsula in French Canada
  • Wonders of the Maritimes & Scenic Cape Breton (9 days). Wondering about Scotland? Wander the Maritimes! It’s no wonder that Nova Scotia (New Scotland) is home to the largest Scottish Gaelic-speaking community outside of Scotland. With its red-and-white-striped lighthouses, salty fishing harbors and towering cliffside coasts, the rugged and wild scenery of Canada’s Maritimes mirrors its Scottish roots. 
  • Historic Cities of Eastern Canada (9 days) France or French Canada? No place does Europe (other than Europe) better than Québec City and Montréal. From cobblestoned streets and café-lined town squares; beautiful basilicas and awe-inspiring architecture, you can submerge yourself in French culture, close to home.

And for those who are looking for a menu of memories and a customizable vacation, Globus has unveiled two NEW Choice Touring vacations in Canada for 2021. 

“We understand that one size does not always fit all,” said Steve Born, chief marketing officer for the Globus family of brands. “With this new touring style, and YourChoice Excursions, travelers can now spend their days, their way in dozens of destinations across Europe and North America. The average Choice Touring itinerary features three (3) YourChoice destinations with approximately nine (9) excursion options.”
