Frequently Asked Questions
About Your Trip
Most useful will be clothing that can be worn in layers; i.e. walking trousers, shorts, light shirts and sweatshirts or jumpers. If you have a choice, a fleece jumper and waterproof jacket are much better than bulky/heavyweight sweaters/ jackets. It will be cold in the evenings in June and September, whilst it can be warm during the day.

While Canada is quite reasonable, it's not the bargain destination it may have been in years past. You should allow $15 - $20 a day for small expenses such as snacks, souvenirs, postcards etc. Money is best taken in Canadian Dollars, which you can get before travel or upon arrival. ATMs are widely available as well.

With a latitude and maritime situation much like the UK, temperatures in the coastal region and mild summer temperatures average 22oC in Vancouver, but can reach as high as 30oC in the low lying interior. June and September are usually a bit cooler, and the coast can get rain at any time. The mountains have typical mountain weather, and sun, cloud, rain and even snow can all be experienced in a morning!

Canada Specific Questions
Please visit the Exodus Travel Guide to Canada where you can find out what plugs they use, as well as more detailed Country information in the menu on the left of the page.
Most clients are eligible to travel via the US under the US Visa Waiver Programme, however to do this you must register for an ETA (Electronic Travel Authority). This must be done prior to departure - more details can be found at www.exodus.co.uk/usvisa.

Family Groups Specific Questions
To book on a Family Adventure Holiday at least one member of the family must be under the age of 18. For individual trips a minimum age will also be specified - see the Essential Information tab for the particular trip you are interested in. Please note there may also be a minimum age for certain activities on your chosen holiday.
If you are the sort of family that enjoys meeting other families and have a passion for discovering new places and trying new activities, then you’ll love going on a Family Adventure. With a Tour Leader to take care of daily arrangements, you can relax and get on with the serious business of spending time with your family and enjoying your holiday. And it’s not just parents who take their children away; we’ve had a number of children travelling with just their grandparents too!
Itineraries are carefully planned to provide a good balance of activity and relaxation time. You can opt to stay with the group all the time or go off and do your own thing every now and then. Your leader will be on hand to help you find your way and organise optional activities. And if the local food isn’t pleasing everyone in the party, it’s usually possible to sneak off to the occasional pizza parlour or similar, to get something a little more familiar.
Our holidays are designed to take you to unusual or remote places, give you exciting experiences and allow you to make the most of your precious holiday time. As with all adventure holidays, there is inevitably an element of risk that you might not find on a resort-based package. However, safety is taken very seriously and our professional leaders will take all necessary precautions to run the trip safely. You will get to see wonderful sights, have the opportunity to interact with local people and create memories that will stay with you forever. Come with us and let us share our passion for travel with you!
