Anderson Hosts Top Agents And Operators on Mountain Madness FAM Through ALberta

Anderson Vacations started their business by promoting travel in your own backyard in 1994. That principal still holds true today by offering travel across Canada and including the companies own backyard: the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Anderson Vacations recently returned from hosting close to twenty top travel agents and TAP (Travel Alliance Partners Ltd.) tour operator partners on their legendary Alberta ‘Rocky Mountain Madness’ FAM tour. Participants from all across North America were treated to a trip of a lifetime. Agents visited Calgary, Edmonton, Jasper, Lake Louise and Jasper on a very classic loop around the Wild Rose Province. Highlights included taking in the spectacular Icefields Parkway, West Edmonton Mall, rafting down the Athabasca River in Jasper, a real Stampede experience in Calgary, aerial tramways in both Jasper and Banff, exploring a glacier at the Columbia Icefields, and many more. A perfect combination of urban and natural sights were included, and participants are now fully educated on the splendors and diversity of the province.

With Anderson Vacations offering a wide range of Alberta product, ranging from customizable F.I.T travel to the most comprehensive selection of Escorted Tours in the province, Anderson takes great pride in showing off its own backyard. Heather Matthews, FAM host and Custom Groups Manager, describes the experience as “a fantastic way to show agents in person how amazing the Rockies and Alberta are and how much there is to offer clients. By experiencing firsthand the sightseeing, activities and Western hospitality that Alberta is known for we are able to help agents sell these destinations with a renewed passion and incredible knowledge.”

As for the Rockies themselves, The Rocky Mountains have been attracting tourists and outdoor enthusiasts alike for over a century and that shows no sign of slowing down; as each year travelers from around the world come to admire arguably the most spectacular mountain range in the world. The Rockies offer a wide range of activities from sightseeing and leisurely boat cruises, to white water rafting, rock climbing and a host of other adventure sports. Likewise, accommodation ranges from camping in the backcountry to the ultimate in luxury at the Fairmont Hotel properties, all of which is available through Anderson Vacations. Participant Toyea Youngblood of Advance Tour and Travel commented on the tours diversity by saying “In all honesty, I was impressed with most every aspect of the tour. From the cozy & inviting urban Calgary experiences to the posh Mountain Lodges, to the relaxed family style dining & entertainment of the Cornerstone Theatre – Alberta truly holds something every genre of traveler”.
