APT releases sneak peek at popular 2023 trips with big savings

APT has launched a sneak peek into a range of its most sought after overseas trips with pre-release programs for both its 2023 Canada and Alaska and European brochures, so travel agents can secure the best deals for their clients.

The 16-page Canada and Alaska brochure showcases five key itineraries with multiple departures dates across key travel months of April to September 2023 with savings of up to $3,500 per couple are on offer for bookings made prior to 29 April 2022.

APT’s Canada and Alaska product manager Hannah Wright said there has never been a better time to explore the region.

“The wide-open spaces, connection to nature and meaningful cultural experiences in Canada and Alaska set the area apart from the rest of the world,” Wright said.

“There are bucket-list moments around every corner, from traversing the Rockies aboard the Rocky Mountaineer and staying in a Lakeview Room at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, to an ocean cruise through Alaska’s beautiful Inside Passage.

“And with so much to see, there’s no reason not to explore Canada in full, with unforgettable experiences also awaiting throughout the diverse eastern reaches of the country.”

APT offers smaller group sizes with a maximum of 40 guests on Canada tours, all trips are fully escorted with an APT tour director and cruise liaison and the local operations team based in Vancouver provides security and service on the ground.

Stand out moments from APT’s Signature Experiences across this range include meeting a Mountie and listening to tales of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as well as joining a nature exploration following and breakfast at the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park plus Freedom of Choice options aplenty such as a Harley-Davidson motorcycle sidecar tour, rafting, hiking, a Gondola ride or even a floatplane flight, before joining the week-long Alaskan cruise aboard one of Holland America Line’s prestigious ships in a guaranteed verandah stateroom.

For the pre-release of its Europe program, APT is offering the chance to travel in 2023 at 2022 prices when booking by 31 May 2022.

Highlights of Signature Experiences across these trips include a private music recital at Vienna’s City Palace, a visit to the privately-owned Namedy Castle in Germany for a cocktail party or morning tea and a piano recital, and an exclusive journey aboard the Grand Empress steam train in Hungary on departures between April and September, all of which are included in the Magnificent Europe itinerary.

Other Signature Experiences include exploring Eltz Manor in Croatia, which houses the Vukovar City Museum, where a visit is accompanied by a glass of sparkling wine and classical music; lunch at the Palace of Versailles; a cocktail reception and fado performance at Palacio da Bolsa in Porto or riding a camel through Morocco’s Merzouga Dunes.
