Classifieds Update – Antarctica, Canada, New Zealand and Scandanavia

It has been a while since we let everyone know about some of the trips we have being sought through our classifieds section, and there are a few that cover some of the most incredible scenic locations across the Globe, so if you are looking for someone to travel with, and are trying to figure out a destination .. perhaps these are possibilities!

inside passage

If you have ever thought of visiting Canada and Alaska by cruising the Inside Passage we have a single lady whom is looking for a travelling companion to do just that with a preference for September of this year (2015), with the possibility for adding in a trip around the Rocky Mountains. If this September is too soon then let us know and we may be able to match you up for your desired time!

In January 2016 we have a lady seeking a companion to discover the land of the Long White Cloud. This is for a trip covering the highlights of both the North and the South Island of New Zealand –  preferably by coach tour, though dependant on options they are willing to consider a shared option for a self-drive package.

hurtigruten

From early 2016 (dates are flexible) we have a single lady seeking a travel companion to journey to Scandinavia. The focus of this journey will be a cruise of the Norwegian Fjords and possibly extending to see the highlights of Lapland, and Sweden.
