Happy New Year, educators!

As challenging as it was, 2020 is now behind us. At EWT, we are excited to start fresh and explore brighter prospects for 2021, especially with the implementation of a COVID-19 vaccine. It is only a matter of time before borders start opening again, and once they will – and when you are ready – we will be here to assist you.

In the meantime, we have been thinking creatively to provide travel opportunities for you in the circumstances. While overnight travel is currently not an option, why not take an educational day-trip in your province? Take a look at the below itineraries we have put together for your inspiration!



Generously gifted with natural beauty and rich cultural diversity, Vancouver also offers a handful of insightful educational and fun activities. Start your day with a visit to the Museum of Anthropology to expose your students to the art and culture of the Northwest Coast First Nations. Continue with a unique History & Dark Secrets guided tour of Stanley Park, during which students will learn all about the park's fascinating story as well as its myriad past mysteries and dramas. Enjoy a tasty group lunch at the exciting Granville Island Public Market; take a stroll and discover the charming local shops spread out over the area. And finally, get exclusive access to Vancouver's most breathtaking sights from the comfort of our Sunset Dinner cruise boat!




The capital of British Columbia, as well as the oldest city in the Pacific Northwest, boasts a rich history, beautiful architecture, and riveting culture to expose your students to. Needless to say, Victoria has plenty to offer to student groups. A guided tour of the palace-like Legislature Buildings will thoroughly teach students about the region's Government and Legislative Assembly. Next, the Royal BC Museum will introduce them to a wide collection of British Columbia's natural and human historical artifacts. Carry on with a stroll at the stunning Butchart Gardens – one of Victoria's proud landmarks and a National Historic Site of Canada – hosting over 900 varieties of plants. Alternatively, you may wish to explore the mind-blowing marine wildlife in a thrilling whale-watching zodiac adventure.




Besides being home to many educational institutions – the University of British Columbia has a campus there – the main city of the Okanagan Valley offers surprising landscapes such as imposing mountains, an immense lake, natural parks and canyons – the perfect background for recurrent culture and music festivals. A day-trip in Kelowna will include a visit to either the Okanagan Heritage or Military Museums, for your students to gain knowledge of the locals' connection to their land, or to take part in a hands-on "Secret War" program: Code Breaking and Espionage. After a delicious lunch at a local food truck, they will enjoy the outdoors hiking or bicycling along the scenic Kettle Valley Railway at Myra Canyon Trestles. Schedule dependent, don't miss an entertaining music jam to discover local talents or (why not?) be the talents yourselves.




A friendly city with a strong Western cultural influence, the "Cowtown" hosts many cultural festivals in the summer. Also home to a diversity of museums and sights, it's a dynamic place to bring your students to for an exciting day-trip. Start your day at the one-of-a-kind National Music Centre for an interactive experience with Canada's music history through various exhibitions, educational programs, and performances with which students will be encouraged to engage. Enjoy a group lunch at an outdoor food market before riding up the Calgary Tower for a 360-degree panoramic view of the city, prairies, foothills – and even the Rocky Mountains in the distance. End this eventful day with an escape room experience, where your students will be required to use critical thinking and challenge their leadership skills to solve a mystery in teams.




The capital city of Alberta is a cultural, governmental, and educational centre, making it an insightful city for students to visit on a day-trip. A guided tour of the Legislature Buildings will provide a framework for understanding the province's history, parliamentary process, and the architecture of this surprising heritage building. Next, the Telus World of Science will engage your students' curiosity through active learning with a DIY experiment on a scientific phenomenon; or, if more connected to your curriculum, the Royal Alberta Museum will expose them to Alberta's environmental heritage. Students will end this educational day blowing off some steam at the famous West Edmonton Mall, where they will be able to choose among several exciting activities such as the Water Park, Galaxyland and Blacklight Minigolf.



Note: Our day-trip itineraries also include an activity specially tailored to your group. Also keep in mind that we can customize all of our itineraries. If your city or sight of interest is not yet on the list, we will be delighted to add it for you!
