Spontaneous Events & Unique Discoveries

We base our travel principles on the newly emerging geotourism concepts. Geotourism is not about rocks.  It is a new type of tourism encouraged by the National Geographic Center for Sustainable Destinations.  It is defined as tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place—its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and the well-being of its residents.  Geotourism incorporates the concept of sustainable tourism—that destinations should remain unspoiled for future generations—while allowing for enhancement that protects the character of the locale.  We have integrated these ideas and concepts into our overall approach, and you will come away with a surprising newfound feeling of how and why responsible travel should be undertaken. At the end of the day is all means GREAT TRIPS.  This year, National Geographic named the Avalon Peninsula as the very top of 99 coastal tourism destinations in the world, beating out popular seaside travel spots in Wales, New Zealand, Hawaii, Italy, Australia and other provinces within Canada.
