Covid-19 - Review our Tour Care & Safety Protocols

Photo Contest
The votes are in and the results have been tabulated! In honour of our 35th year of operations, we at Adventures Abroad are celebrating our birthday with the culmination of the very popular bi-weekly photo contest. Our 35th photo contest drew many participants to vote on the best photo of the previous 34 winners of our photo contests that we started shortly after the beginning of the pandemic. The idea was to take the time to relive fond memories of trips and tours gone by. It was to give us a chance to appreciate past opportunities of travel to experience other cultures and to bide our time until that opportunity arises again. Many of the themes of the previous photo contests involved destinations like Egypt, Greece, Central Asia and more. Other themes featured wildlife, monuments, and birds. While some themes featured either your Adventures Abroad tour leader, other members of your group, or your best selfie! We do very much hope that it has been as fun for you as it has been for us. With that, we are now turning our attention back to the present as we are back up and operating tours again. Iceland, Greece, Newfoundland and British Columbia have all featured in recent tours, with several more tour destinations queued up to depart soon.


So without much further ado, we present to you the winners of the 35th photo contest as voted by YOU, our valued travellers.

FIRST PLACE WINNER ($500 travel credit toward next tour):


First Place Winner

Butterflies on a Croc. - Anne H. on her January 2019 trip with her friend Chris C. Winner of the 18th round on Ecuador and Galapagos.


SECOND PLACE WINNER ($300 travel credit toward next tour):

In the spirit of our 35th birthday, we also took the opportunity to celebrate by offering two randomly selected voters in this 35th photo contest to receive a $200 travel credit on their next tour with us. Congratulations to: Camille B. and Rich G.! And a big thank you to all of you voters out there who participated in voting to determine the winners!

Congratulations to all of the winners and to all of the photo contest participants over the course of our run. We immensely enjoyed taking the time to go through the submissions and reliving your travel memories. It was a very difficult decision each time to select the winners. Now? We look forward to plenty of new travel memories to come as we return to the magic of travel!
