Moose trips are all about the adventure, and Canada is one of the best countries in the world for adventure activities! There are both free and included activities as well as activities that require an extra payment. The Moose guides will help you book optional activities for you as well as make sure you get there and back. The approximate prices are in CAD and paid directly either to your Moose guide or the activity operator.

Shared dorm accommodation is included, mostly in small dorms (4-6 beds) (mixed and male/female only options available in most locations). Please note that pre and post accommodation is not included, only the nights on tour.
Moose buses are safe and comfortable mini-coaches, seating 11, 13 or 24 people. They have extra large windows for catching all the great views, air-conditioning and heating to keep cool or warm, and a sound system to keep the tunes rolling!
Many of our trips include some meals which you can find listed in the Itinerary under "What's included". We also make regular stops at local grocery stores for you to purchase your own supplies (most hostels have cooking facilities), and our trip leaders often organise group meals, both of which save you money. We recommend you budget approximately CAD$20 to $40 per day for non-included meals.
