|BC Ferries is offering a number of Tour packages this year, as they|
look to raise the profile of the North Coast and Haida Gwaii for travellers
The call of the North is being heard coming out of the BC Ferries advertising offices this week as the Transportation service that serves Coastal British Columbia puts a focus on some of its Northern Travel packages for those making their summer time travel plans.
Called Northern Adventures, the advertising program offers up a number of travel options for those that might be looking for the journey to the North Coast and Haida Gwaii in the tourist season ahead.
There are seven options available for those looking to explore the North Coast this year, they include:
Haida Gwaii Bed and Breakfast package
Inside Passage Highlights Tour
Discovery Coast Circle Tour
Inside Passage Wilderness Circle Tour
Haida Gwaii Cultural Adventure Package at Haida House
Inside Passage Coastal Adventure
Haida Gwaii All Inclusive Cultural Package at Haida House
BC Ferries is also marketing an extended tour of British Columbia , with its Inside Passage Wilderness Circle Tour Okanagan that includes both an exploration of the North Coast and Haida Gwaii but arranges accommodation for travellers in the Okanagan region of the province.
The full overview of the campaign can be explored here.
BC Ferries recently announced additional sailings for the North Coast route, offering increased capacity between Prince Rupert and Haida Gwaii.
The increased focus on tour options from BC Ferries and the recently announced Cruise Ship schedule for Prince Rupert which will bring over 17,000 visitors to the community would seem to indicate that the 2017 tourism season may be a very good one for local tour operators and merchants in the city.
