About Classic Canadian Tours
Classic Canadian Tours provides unique Canadian vacation experiences. Our specialty is to offer short and efficient tours to regions of Canada that are considered a little off the beaten track. To inspire Canadians and visitors to our county to take in remote regions of Canada we charter aircraft and fly directly to these regions from major gateway cities. For example, our signature tour over the past decade has been our same day Polar Bear Safari direct from Calgary, Edmonton or Saskatoon to Churchill, Manitoba. The regions of Canada offer stunning landscapes, magnificent wildlife and extreme seasons. Classic Canadian Tours make it easy to discover and explore out of the way corners of Canada.

The one day trip is well worth it even though it is a long day. We got to see 12 of them "up close & personal"! The only negative was the charter flight. This is an expensive trip so I assumed that we would have...More

Logistically, this company is incredible. To manage 136 people on a one day tour in snow and winter conditions is nothing short of a miracle. The morning breakfast and visit with the Pandas ended up being the highlight of our trip rather than what we...More

I was on the 10/26/18 tour. It was fantastic. We saw 15 bear. Many right beside our buggy. It was a very efficient operation from Calgary. Very warm in the buggy and plenty of window space. Nice lunch watching majestic animals.

Highly recommend this tour for all those who appreciate nature. It was such a treat to watch the polar bears throughout the day in their natural habitat. Canadian Classic Tours along with the naturalists accompanying our group organized an exceptional day.
