    Absolut must do when in Canada! I never thought I'd ever find another place as beautiful as New Zealand, but Jared has convinced me on this trip that Canada is actually at least as beautiful! Also I am not a fan of organised tours at all, but I totally recommend this one. It didn't feel like a guided tour but more like a roadtrip with a bunch of friends. The itinary is quite flexible so there is no pressure to do any of the activities that are planed/ recommended if you don't feel like it (eventhough they are totally worth doing) and Jared the driver guide always tries to accommodate additional activities you might be interested in. He also has a great knowledge of the country and is happy to share this and the canadian culture - there is lots of local music he passionately shares and activities that will give you the chance to experience the culture first hand - like oyster shucking, or authentic places with local live music. The trip is a well balanced combination of cities and national parks, so no matter if you are more of a city or a nature person, there are great places for either preference. The destinations on the route are carefully picked and are a good mix of "must-sees" and off the beaten track destinations. My personal highlights have been Cape Breton Island and Gaspesie with its stunning sceneries! The accommodation is a combination of camping in beautiful national parks with stargazing and campfires, cabins and hostels - some of them are quite unique and will give you a great experience that goes beyond the standard hostel thing. The activities along the way are fun and I would recommend to do at least some of them. Here the absolute highlight for me was the white water rafting. So much fun! Besides that there was a variety of different stuff to do from hikes, to canoeing, kayaking, horse riding and so much more! And for those who are keen, there have also been some opportunities to enjoy the nightlife with relaxed bonfires on beautiful beaches or bars and pubs in the cities. All in all such a great experience and I am so happy I went on the trip! Thanks Jared! Even thinking of booking another one in Winter =D Absolutes "Muss" für die Kanada- Reise! Vor dem Trip war ich überzeugt, dass ich niemals ein schöneres Land als Neuseeland finden würde, aber Jared hat mich überzeugt, dass Kanada mindestens genauso schön ist. Außerdem bin ich eigentlich nicht so der Fan von organisierten Reisen, würde diese hier aber trotzdem unbedingt weiterempfehlen. Es hat sich auch gar nicht wie eine Gruppenreise angefühlt, sondern eher wie ein Roadtrip mit einer Gruppe von Freunden. Das Program ist sehr flexibel und falls man mal keine Lust auf etwas hat, ist es nie ein Problem einfach sein eigenes Ding zu machen. Allerdings sind es die Programmpunkte definitiv schon wert, mitzumachen! Außerdem versucht Jared, der Tourguide, es auch immer zu ermöglichen, wenn man noch eine Idee hat, was man machen möchte, die aber eigentlich nicht eingeplant war. Es kommt also auf jeden Fall jeder auf seine Kosten! Zudem weiß Jared jede Menge über das Land und die Kultur und teilt dieses Wissen auch gerne mit den Teilnehmern. Seine besondere Leidenschaft ist die regionale Musik, wovon er passend zu jeder Provinz auch immer etwas spielt. Außerdem gibt es auch einige Aktivitäten, die einem die kanadische Kultur näher bringen - wie z.B frische Austern knacken und schlürfen oder der Besuch von Bars mit lokaler Live- Musik! Insgesamt ist der Trip eine gute Kombination aus Städten und Nationalparks, sodass für jeden etwas dabei ist, egal ob man mehr auf Kultur oder Natur steht. Die Anlaufstellen auf der Route haben alles dabei was man unbedingt gesehen haben muss, aber auch viele tolle Geheimtipps! Für mich persönlich waren Cape Breton Island und Gaspesie die absoluten Höhepunkte! Die Unterkünfte sind eine Mischung aus Camping in Nationalparks - unter dem Sternenhimmel und mit Lagerfeuern, Hütten und Hostels. Einige der Hostels sind etwas ausgefallener und zeigen einem, dass es auch ganz anders (und soviel besser) sein kann als die langweiligen Jugendherbergen früher auf der Klassenfahrt. Die geplanten Aktivitäten sind sehr gut ausgewählt und machen alle total Spaß! Ich würde auf jeden Fall empfehlen, einige davon mitzumachen. Besonders das White Water Rafting hat mir super Spaß gemacht! Außer dem Raften gab es noch sehr viele andere Sachen zu tun, von Wandern, über Kanu oder Kajak fahren bis hin zu Reiten uvm. Außerdem gibt es für diejenigen die Lust haben, auch abends noch was zu machen, genügend Möglichkeiten von entspannten Lagerfeuern an wunderschönen Stränden bis hin zu Bars und Clubs in den Städten. Es war eine super Zeit und ich bin total froh mich für den Trip entschieden zu haben! Ich überlege sogar demnächst noch einen Wintertrip zu machen =D

    Die Tour war ausgezeichnet. Wir waren in verschiedenen Städten wie Quebec, Fredericton, Halifax, Charlottetown und Montréal sowie in den Nationalparks und ländlicheren Gegenden von Tadoussac, Gaspésie, New Brunswick und Nova Scotia. Es ist eine gute Mischung aus wandern und die Natur in verschiedenen Aktivitäten wie Kayaking, Canoeing und Klettern kennenlernen sowie aus Stadt-Sightseeing mit Parties, Shopping etc. Dies alles in einer gut organisierten und geleiteten Gruppe mit lauter gleichgesinnten Backpackern. Es macht viel mehr Spass, das grosse Land in einem Bus voller gleichaltriger Leute zu erkunden als alleine in einem öffentlichen Bus oder auf einem Roadtrip. Man wächst zusammen, man macht viele Dinge zusammen und behält unglaubliche Erinnerungen. Die Unterkünfte und Hostels sind exzellent gewählt, einziger Wermutstropfen sind die Rundzelte in ein paar Unterkünften, die sich schon um 8 Uhr morgens so stark aufheizen, dass man nicht mehr schlafen kann. Dies war jedoch bloss 2 Mal der Fall. Ich kann den Trip jedem weiterempfehlen, der den Osten Kanadas nicht alleine, sondern in einer spannenden Gruppe erkunden will und dabei die besten Sehenswürdigkeiten, aber auch verschiedene "versteckte Juwelen" entdecken will.

    Going on a trip with Jared (Out Here Travel) is ideal for people who don’t want to plan anything in advance, but still want to enjoy all the beautiful spots East Canada has to offer. I doubt that there is a better way to see as many breathtaking views, do as many hikes, go partying in cities and experience different provinces in such a short time. Stargazing as you’ve never done before in Algonquin Park. Hiking in Mont-Tremblant, staying at a cosy hostel near a lake and spending the day in the national park. Beautiful views on Cape Breton Island as well as incredible beaches in PEI and Gaspésie. My favourites, but the list goes on... I wouldn’t describe myself as the most adventurous human being (and I didn’t do all of the activities offered) but I really appreciated that stepping out of my comfort zone was part of the/my journey. I didn’t sign up for river rafting at first, but then my group and Jared convinced me to go anyway – which turned out to be the best thing I could have done – definitely my personal highlight! As well as trying oysters, which felt like drinking sea water, but was totally worth the experience. I loved the salmon and the seafood pasta we once cooked, though! To all the seafood lovers: this is it. One thing you need for sure: energy. Lots of it. You spend most of the time outside, whether you’re in cities or nature. That’s why you stop worrying about things you would usually worry about, which is one of the many things I appreciated during these days: You get your mind off unimportant things. Also, you move a lot, to which you get used to quickly. (Believe me, I’m from Switzerland). Jared has a great bus, (sometimes) good music ;-), films and makes sure everyone gets their bathroom break and a coffee from Tim Hortons. Sadly, I got sick during the trip, but I was able to stay in the hostel for a day and luckily there are pharmacies almost everywhere you go. Plus, everybody in the group will look after you and Jared’s first priorities always were your well-being and you being able to have the best time ever. One more thing: Travelling with the same guys for a whole month may sound scary and isn’t always simple (dinner organization), but I really enjoyed getting to know a bunch of incredible human beings from all over the world, bonding and experiencing crazy stuff with them during a month. No comparison to the “hostel friendships” you make otherwise. Just get “Out There” - you won’t regret it!

    I’m so happy I decided to sign up with Out Here Canada to explore the Maritimes & Quebec. It was one of the best holidays I’ve experienced! I fell in love with PEI: the gorgeous red sand beaches and the red rocks were amazing in person. We went to 4 different beaches around the island and swam in the Atlantic Ocean which was way warmer than I expected. I would have never discovered the Sa Shack in Gaspesie without this tour. That place is pure magic. We were going to places off the beaten path, and getting to be one in nature. There was a great mashup between exploring cities, and hiking in the outdoors. It was an added bonus that most days spent out of the cities had different options, like a longer, more difficult hike or a shorter, easier hike - both would have great views! No day was ever the same. From the adrenaline of a via Ferreta course or kayaking in the day lawrence, to tasting fresh oysters and learning to crack a lobster.

    Where to start... What an epic adventure.. I can not recommend this trip enough... Jared is a true Canadian dude, showing you the best of the best throughout this journey. He will look after you to no end, making sure you experience the true Canada that even most Canadians can only dream about visiting....!!  From breath taking views, both coastal and inland, to very unique villages that will imprint life long memories.. You will get opportunities to do some very fun activities, such as white water rafting the Ottawa river and canyoning in the amazing gaspésies, to name but a few..!!   Some great rewarding hikes to beautiful views; Cabot trail and the bay of fundy to view the sea bed at low tide, which is an amazing spectacle... Lay under the stars at night in Algonquin park and see them as you never have before. Float and swim in beautiful lakes or rivers that never end.. You will get the chance to eat some great poutine in different spots, where it only gets better and better as you journey on..!! There is so much good food to be enjoyed, fresh Lobster, Muscles and Oysters.. CHEESE!!! Whales, Moose, Deer and many other wildlife can be seen along the route.. The chipmunks will provide great entertainment... Don't think about it, just book it, you will not regret this trip...  The only sad part is saying goodbye at the end after strangers have become friends and enjoyed an amazing amount of fun.. This is a journey of epic adventure... Do it!!

    This was an unforgettable experience and amazing adventure that I would recommend to everyone coming over and wanting to see more of Canada. There is coastal views for days, stargazing, hikes, wildlife (cracking sea pigeons around I heard...), sand dunes, city stops not to mention the activities like rafting, canyoning, climbing, whale watching and all the incredible food (seafood to die for - try and meet Captain Mark, moose, cheese, potatoes and be sure to have a spot of Poutine with Jared... I heard he likes it!) We even managed to squeeze in plenty of partying along the way. Don't expect all your standard hostels. Just wait until you get to Tadoussac and Sea Shack, Gaspesie (my fave spots). You will do a bit of camping, maybe even sleep in some yurts, be close to death with a hangover but you will meet the most incredible people from all walks of life with cracking stories to tell. Maybe brush up on your french though for round some of the campfires... Aside from the trip itself, Jared is just an all round legend - he takes you to the places HE loves which shows from his enthusiasm meaning you get the true Canadian experience. You won't be doing any cliched rubbish as he takes you to places that are off the beaten track to places that most Canadians are still dreaming of getting to! Thanks to the gang for the experiences, memories and pals made. To everyone else, book up, you won't regret it.

    My parntner and I were on study exchange from the UK (at U of T) and really wanted to get to know at least a few parts of the country as the locals do, and try lots of different activities, and hang out with other travellers with a similar outlook, and all without breaking the bank. The package offered by Out Here was just what we were looking for. Our guide was superb, really knew every nook and cranny on the route, and was generally prepared to accommodate if there was something we wanted to see or do that wasn't on the day's agenda. But that wasn't much, as the trip was really packed with great activities. Our favourite part was seeing the awesome wildlife - actual Moose on the Cabot trail! And the cute deers in the Laurentians! But the best was definitely the whales we saw on the kayaking trip out of Tadoussac - a real once-in-a-lifetime experience. We also enjoyed the city and smaller town stops - particularly old Quebec City and Charlottetown - where our guide introduced us to some great hangouts with local live music and great food and BEER! Not sure about the poutine though! Chips in gravy - with cheese? And the stay at Sea Shack at Gaspesie was awesome - a great party with a live band followed by a chance to camp on the beach under the stars. I don't if this is how Canadians always roll on their summer holiday, but it's definitely how we'll remember our Canadian experience. We'll definitely hook up with these guys when we make it back to Canada.

    Travelling around Eastern Canada with a great bunch of people, what more do you want? Led by Chief Adventurer Jared, this trip encompasses the very best of Canada. Whether you are interested in scenery, hiking, wildlife, adventurous sports or just enjoying the local food and drink and immersing yourself in local culture, there is something for everyone on this trip. Jared's knowledge ensures you do the best hikes, see the best views and take part in the best activities. You can try lobster, oysters, poutine or any other local delicacy that takes your fancy, and it is definitely encouraged to make the most of your trip! This trip is a fine mix of cities and experiencing the Canadian outdoors. The scenery is incredible. The national Parks of Cap Breton and Algonquin are a sight to behold, whilst The Cabot Trail, Tadoussac and Gaspesie definitely hold their own. The trip is designed with flexibility in mind, activities are not compulsory (although highly recommended) whilst in cities there is ample time to explore at your own pace. I would definitely recommend The Big One if you have time, you'll only be wishing the trip was longer!

You are always looked after, his knowledge about Canada is amazing and he is awesome!! He also encourages you to experience things you never thought you would with his excellent recommendations, for me I never tried Lobster or any sea food but after this trip I am a huge fan! I would recommend the Big trip, it’s worth it! As a solo traveller I did this tour and I have no regrets and wish I could do it all again, you make amazing and life long friends and the trip is the best I have ever done. Cabot trail, bay of Fundy, Tadousssc are just a couple of amazing places you see on this tour. If you haven’t booked it yet, do it!
