Independent Group Travel
Moose Travel offers a unique style of bus tours allowing the independent traveler flexibility to create their own experience, while offering a fun group atmosphere. Our tours have been designed for solo travellers, couples or groups of friends, with our friendly guides leading group activities. During the day we are exploring together on the bus, but once in a location you can choose to explore on your own, or join in with the group.
If you book an accommodated tour option, you’ll stay in mixed gender, hostel dormitory-style beds during your Moose tour. However, if you prefer more privacy, you can book the non-accommodated tour option and then make arrangements for your accommodation. Most of our hostel partners offer private rooms, which means you could enjoy more privacy but still stay in the same accommodation as your Moose guide and fellow travellers. Find out more about accommodation here.
Small Group Tours
Our buses carry an up to 24 passengers, which means we have time to stop regularly and explore various locations en route. Unlike travelling on a large coach tour, our buses are designed so that you can chat with friends, play music on the speakers, and take in the amazing scenery through the extra large windows. Each day offers free activities that can include hiking and swimming which can be done with the group. There will also be time for individual activities and exploration in the evenings.
Each night there will be an option to eat with the group or to do your own thing. Some tours offer included meals (see tour description for details) and all hostels provide kitchen facilities to prepare your own food. Our knowledgeable guides will recommend great dining options along the way so you can try classic Canadian poutine and elk nachos!
If you are traveling alone we can pretty much guarantee that you will make new friends before the tour is over. Many of our guests arrive by themselves but finish the tour with new friends from all over the world.
Also, there is no single supplement on our tours (unlike many larger tour operators)!
Meet Locals and Make New Friends
We hire guides who are expert ambassadors for Canada to show you what life in this country is all about. The bus stops in many small towns along the way to see local farms, shops and markets, allowing you to experience authentic Canadian life. While travelling throughout British Columbia and Alberta you’ll meet some of the friendliest Canadians around while experiencing their great hospitality. Ask a local about hockey (not “ice hockey”) or about the best hiking spots around and you’ll certainly get enthusiastic responses!
