Trafalgar has released its 2020 USA & Canada program, highlighted by a number of new trips and experiences.
To celebrate the launch, travellers can save 10% on select 2020 trips when paid in full by Dec. 18.
2020 sees the brand introduce “Active” itineraries, ideal for lovers of the great outdoors, featuring a walk or a hike most days, with guests having the freedom to take on different trails best suited to fitness levels. “State Explorer” trips will like the name suggests, give clients an even deeper look at particular states and what makes them so unique, featuring experiences across Hawaii, Colorado, California and Massachusetts.
Trafalgar has also introduced a new concept for its “City Explorer” trips to traveller favourites, San Francisco and New York. Guests can choose from included “Daily Choice” options to tailor their days with hand-selected inclusions to unlock the magic of each city, along with the expert guidance of their travel director to bring their choices to life in even greater depth.
Other new trips include the Scenic Wonders of Newfoundland, Labrador and Ile Saint Pierre.
In line with its JoinTrafalgar sustainability initiatives that help make a difference to people, places and wildlife and the planet, 2020 sees a new trip solely focused in immersing guests in Native American history and culture in the US.
An exclusive overnight stay in the glamorous Martha’s Vineyard has been added to the collection of Trafalgar’s signature “Stays with Stories,” handpicked to inspire the imagination of guests and connect them to the destination through culturally significant overnight locations.
The tour operator is also extending its National Parks offering, expanding its extensive list with Gros Morne in Newfoundland to Rocky Mountain National Park, Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Saguaro, Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, as well as UNESCO World Heritage Sites like Chaco Culture National Historic Park – the largest collection of important pre-Colombian cultural and historical areas in the US.
Many client favourites are also back, including “Dive into Culture” in Nashville, wine tasting with a local family in Sonoma, visiting the South’s last remaining Cotton Plantation in Mississippi or indulging in a French feast with a lunch of local Quebecois treats.
“Canadian guests today want a deeper travel experience, as well as seeing all the sights they’ve always dreamed of, and Trafalgar has the balance right,” says Gavin Tollman, Trafalgar’s Global CEO. “We are constantly innovating to offer our guests new, eye-opening experiences expertly planned out by our passionate North American team and are so excited to share the connections we have in this part of the world. Our new JoinTrafalgar trip, deep diving into USA’s Native American culture in particular is something truly different, which we know guests will absolutely love.”
