Canada is a very affordable vacation choice at the moment. At the time I wrote this article, the US Dollar is worth $1.27 Canadian. So, for example, a workshop that is priced at $3000 Canadian, is only going to cost you $2346USD.
From now until June 1, 2015, if you do find a trip or workshop on our site, no matter how far in the future that trip is, we will honor the exchange rate on the day you booked.
But don’t just book because we are an economical destination, book because the natural wonders of Canada. We run a number of trips to some of the most beautiful locations on the planet. Narrowing down our locations that we travel too was a tough job, but we believe our offering gives you the best opportunity to enjoy the most beautiful landscapes in the world.
Below are a list of the locations that we visit every year. Please check them out. If you have any questions, please contact us through the links below.
With more than 6 million cu ft (168,000 m³) of water falling over its brink per minute, Niagara Falls is the most powerful waterfall in North America and one of the most famous in the world. During the day it is spectacular, but lit up at night with fireworks going off over the falls is fantastic to photograph.
Niagara Falls as a town is very touristy in character - lots of trinket shops and cool places to visit and photograph
Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, Gros Morne offers exceptional beauty by way of towering cliffs, waterfalls, coves, land points, sandy beaches, and colourful fishing villages. Hike the soft and loamy landscape (relatively easy on the knees and back) and set up camp at one of the many waterside sites.
A big part of the charm of Gros Morne is the native Newfoundland people you encounter during your visit - famous for their hospitality and good cheer. Most people in the little villages are happy to let you hike through their backyards (literally).
Every year we visit Newfoundland to see Gros Morne, stay in two private lighthouses and travel the shoreline. Here are the details to our next available trip to Newfoundland. http://northof49photography.com/new-page-1
Yukon and Northwest Territories
The northern lights (scientific name: Aurora Borealis) is a phenomenon seen in northern skies where solar particles collide with atmospheric gases and create a light show in the sky. Depending on how north the location, the color of these lights are green, white, red, blue and/or violet. The aurora oval - the area where the northern lights occur most often and with greatest intensity.
On the eve of our 2015 trip to the Yukon. Here are the details to our next Yukon experience. http://northof49photography.com/fall-colours-in-the-yukon

The stunning beauty and ecological diversity of Tofino's location in the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is the source of all activities.
Imagine, all in one place, fishing, kayaking, whale watching, bear-watching, bird watching, camping, hiking, storm-watching and First Nations cultural touring. Surfing is big here, and Tofino was named the best surf town in North America in Outside Magazine's 2010 Editors' Choice awards.
For all this glamour, Tofino remains the rough-and-tumble frontier town it has always been, easygoing, outgoing, enterprising, unpretentious and resolutely friendly. Yet it also boasts swank beachfront resorts, excellent restaurants and a dynamic arts scene rooted in nature and First Nations culture. Welcome to the end of the road.
Every summer we try to travel to tofino. Here is the information on our summer 2015 trip. http://northof49photography.com/tofino-workshop
For centuries Nova Scotia’s lighthouses helped protect seafaring visitors and our own hard working people who looked to the sea for their living. Standing proudly against the elements, they embody the province’s maritime history and spirit.
With 160 lighthouses to visit, there are some that are more easily accessible to visitors than others. Some lighthouses even offer tours where these giant watchtowers come alive with stories of lives saved and lost along Nova Scotia’s coastal waters.
The lighthouse route is something we like to do every June. This is the information on our 2015trip with information on our 2016 trip coming soon. http://northof49photography.com/2015-nova-scotia-lighthouse-tour
