LIVE THE ADVENTURE!
What does it mean to Live the Adventure? Adventure can be defined in many ways. For some, adventure can be extreme experiences like bungee jumping or whitewater rafting. Others, it can merely be heading into uncharted territories and exploring. Or it can be the wonderment of finding a new favourite destination. At Discover Canada Tours, we believe that adventure is whatever you make it be. With this in mind, we provide some of the most authentic experiences throughout Western Canada and into the Pacific Northwest. We make sure that every single tour that you take with us is an adventure and something that you’ll take home with you and never forget.
Where Did The Adventure Start?
Discover Canada Tours was founded in 2005 by Clint Drdul and Stacey Thorson. The original focus of the company was based on the essence of enabling ESL students to experience the beauty and magic that is Western Canada. Since then, the company has grown into becoming the leading tour operator in the Lower Mainland leading adventures into the Rocky Mountains. In addition to the Rocky Mountains, we also have tours along the coastal regions of BC, Whistler, Victoria, Tofino, and Seattle.
Let It Snow. Since acquiring Destination Snow in 2016, Discover Canada Tours also has ski and snowboard tours to some of British Columbia’s best ski resorts, including the resorts with the famed champagne powder. We also have a fantastic adventure to the famous and world-renowned lake Louise Mountain Resort.
Our tours run year-round, as each season provides its own slice of heaven, and the experiences you will take from your adventure from each trip will be unique.

The Discover Canada Tours Brand Structure
Discover Canada Tours is the parent company to several child brands. These brands are West Trek, Extraordinary Experiences, Destinations Snow and Discover Canada Student Adventures. Each brand focuses on different target markets, from student and young adult travel to elementary and high school custom tours all the way to mature travellers, looking for that once in a lifetime experience.
West Trek Tours was acquired by Discover Canada Tours in 2018, making the company the leading tour operator for students and young adults in Western Canada. West Trek is about fun and adventure. On a West Trek tour, one would typically find that the tours are more focused on getting into nature and experience the great outdoors. We are the leading student tour operating taking tours in the Rockies with a core focus on 18-35 adventurous students, young adults and the young at heart. All our tours are about fun and adventure!
Once again, the signature tours of West Trek are our Rocky Mountain adventures. The brand also offers day or single overnight trips to Victoria, Seattle, Tofino and Whistler. In the summer, there are also several camping trips that West Trek offers.
Discover Canada Tours is proud to present Extraordinary Experiences – Beyond the realm of everyday life. This brand focuses on bringing bucket list travel experiences at an affordable price. These trips are focused on the more mature and discerning adventurer. Each of these trips is a small intimate group, never exceeding 22 people.
Each of the adventures that are on offer has been researched thoroughly by our team of experts. We offer adventures to the Yukon to view the gorgeous North Lights, an adventure that travels the Inside Passage and the unique Sip & Soak. These are all experiences that you will remember for a lifetime.
