In celebration of Canada reopening its borders to fully vaccinated US visitors, luxury tour operator TCS World Travel has unveiled two new private jet itineraries to help both new and returning travelers see this diverse country in a new light.
The first of the two adventures takes guests on a journey through Atlantic Canada, where they will learn about the cultural history of the east of the country, as well as witness the vast open spaces that make it so famous. As with all TCS Travel expeditions, the Atlantic Canada tour is completely customizable but highlights of the standard itinerary include visiting Montreal where guests can indulge in a unique floating spa experience and enjoy dinner at one of the city’s top restaurants, and a visit to Prince Edward Island to explore its colorful villages and picturesque coastlines.
The pre-arranged itinerary also takes guests on a coast-to-coast tour of Nova Scotia where they will embark on a decadent cruise and try a range of local activities including golfing and fly fishing. From here guests can hop over to the stunning Fogo Island on their private jet, where they will check-in at the mesmerizing Fogo Island Inn before exploring the island’s unfiltered and simply unrivaled wild beauty. An optional extra on this tour is a visit to Bonavista Peninsula where guests are invited to stay in a tastefully renovated private home from which they can explore this rugged part of Newfoundland.

The second new itinerary is a ten-day adventure that spans from the Rockies to the Pacific coast. The tour kicks off in the Banff National Park which is world-renowned for its dramatic snow-covered peaks, impossibly blue lakes and abundance of wildlife. While staying in the national park, guests can try a host of local experiences including journeying through the Icefields Parkway and canoeing on Moraine Lake.
From Banff, guests will travel via private jet to Okanagan Valley, which is home to some of the best wineries in Canada. On this stop, guests will join a local wine expert for a scenic drive through the region, with a stop off for a vineyard lunch where they will sample some of the finest bottles and enjoy a farm-to-table menu.
Next up is a visit to the remote retreat of Nimmo Bay for a host of immersive culinary activities. From a day of foraging for wild ingredients to cooking out in the wilderness, this stop is all about celebrating the bounty of the land.

As with all TCS Travel private jet tours, each of these immersive itineraries includes accommodation in the finest hotels and resorts at each destination. From two nights at the legendary Fairmont Banff Springs to a mini city break at Hotel Birks Montreal, TCS ensures every stop-off is the height of luxury.
Intended to be an adventure for the whole family or a close group of friends, the new TCS Canada private jet itineraries are designed for six guests, but as is the fully customizable nature of each trip, TCS can accommodate any group size with an appropriately sized jet selected to fit individual group needs.
Of course, we have a responsibility to consider the environmental impact of enjoying a private jet getaway. To help limit the impact of its new Canada itineraries, TCS Travel gives each guest the opportunity to offset their journey via its partnership with Sustainable Travel International – a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating offset programs specifically for the travel industry. TCS’s contributions support two ongoing projects in Peru and Cambodia which are dedicated to limiting the climate crisis through protecting native ecosystems as well as benefiting local communities.
