Travellers will be able to book a range of flexible, semi-independent holidays in Canada including; canoeing & camping in Wells Gray National Park, orca and whale watching in Telegraph Cove and hiking and picnicking in Jasper.

“The first phase of the launch will include three ready-made itineraries, plus an additional family itinerary- all of which are fully-tweakable. For those who would like to mix-and-match their own itinerary from scratch, Rickshaw will also be launching 22 bite-sized trips, which travellers can piece together to create their own holiday, in West Canada, Vancouver Island, Niagra Falls and The Rockies.

Further trips in the East Coast of Canada are also due to launch in September.

Lloyd Kane, Director at Rickshaw Travel, said: “We have seen a lot of demand for holidays to Canada recently so are thrilled to be able to give travellers the opportunity to discover a different side to the country and immerse themselves in the enriching experiences.

“Our aim is to promote Canada as a meaningful destination which focuses on getting back to nature, enjoying wildlife, respecting the environment and finding personal wellbeing”

Rickshaw Travel recently partnered with Brighton-based partner IMONDIAL to develop its Meaningful vision and animal welfare policy, ensuring all its trips are responsible to animals, and will be auditing all of its trips involving wild animal interaction.

Rickshaw is committed to providing enriching, immersive travel experiences that take holidaymakers off the beaten path and into the heart of local communities. Rickshaw’s individual approach to independent exploration enables adventurous holidaymakers to visit the heart of a destination and experience the real spirit of a local culture. Rickshaw specialises in offering small-scale, authentic accommodation that truly reflects the character of each destination.

With Canada being added to Rickshaw Travel’s growing collection, the independent tour operator now offers trips in 25 destinations across Asia, Central and South America, including Cuba, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand, India, Costa Rica, Peru, Borneo, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Chile, Brazil and Japan.

About Rickshaw Travel
Rickshaw Travel is an independent tour operator based in Brighton. They are committed to providing enriching, immersive travel experiences that take holidaymakers off the beaten path and into the heart of local communities.

Meaningful travel – or travelling in a way that everybody benefits from – is the core ethos of Rickshaw: the traveller benefits from enriching experiences where they learn something new (about the destination, culture, a skill or about themselves) and at the same time the local people, animals and/or environment benefit too.

Rickshaw Travel’s individual approach to independent exploration enables adventurous holidaymakers to visit the heart of a destination and experience the real spirit of a local culture. Rickshaw specialises in offering small-scale, authentic accommodation that truly reflects the character of each destination.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Rickshaw Travel is proud to have built up a team of passionate Travel Specialists who each have extensive travel experience in their own dedicated destinations. They pride themselves on being open and honest about the places they have visited and are on hand to inspire and support travellers. The company’s style of travel is unique – Rickshaw’s dedicated Product Team has worked alongside the company’s in-destination partners to create a choice of carefully selected bite-size trips, typically 2-4 days long, which can be combined to create the perfect itinerary. Rickshaw’s bite-size trips include a range of local excursions, charming authentic accommodation and some transfers to ensure a hassle-free holiday. A minimum of three bite-sized trips must be combined to create a full itinerary.

Protecting nature and wildlife – and encouraging travellers to do the same – is also key for the Rickshaw team. They have recently partnered with Brighton-based organisation, ANIMONDIAL, to develop an animal welfare policy, as well as providing a ‘toolkit’ to help other small travel companies become more responsible. Rickshaw Travel has also committed to supporting the end of elephant riding by signing World Animal Protection’s elephant-friendly pledge, and is in the process of auditing trips involving any type of wild animal interaction.

Rickshaw Travel now offers trips in 24 destinations across Asia, Central and South America, including Cuba, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand, India, Costa Rica, Peru, Borneo, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Chile, Brazil and Japan.
