Off-The-Beaten-Track: Arctic Exploration
Fabled Arctic Ship Found!
It was in September 2014 that a Franklin Search Expedition successfully located one of the lost ships from Franklin's doomed Arctic expedition - the HMS Erebus. The Canadian Prime Minister was there to mark this auspicious occasion:
"I am delighted to announce...the discovery of one of the two ships belonging to the Franklin Expedition,"
said Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper (4th from right)
In honour of this historic moment in Canadian history, we are offering a 2015 Arctic voyage aboard the Akademik Ioffe, widely recognised as the best expedition-style cruise vessel operating in Polar waters:

Christine Boecker shares her latest experiences:
December saw Christine Boecker visiting the Christmas Markets in Germany and exploring the many castles and ancient ruins along the River Rhine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Last May Christine visited South Africa (again) - this time to scout out new ideas and destinations for our clients at the Travel Indaba, showcasing the widest variety of Africa's best tourism products. And now we are brimming with fresh ideas to make your African sojourn even more exciting!
Christine recently returned from a fantastic journey through Ecuador, experiencing the best of the Galapagos Archipelago, the Amazon and the Andean Highlands.
Next on Christine's travel calendar is a scouting trip to Namibia's desert, Zimbabwe's famous Victoria Falls and Botswana's Chobe River. Now is perfect the time to plan your African Safari too!
All this first-hand and in-depth knowledge will serve you well, when planning your next adventure. We turn an ordinary trip into a memorable experience!
You care. We care too! "SPREAD THE SMILE"
If you want to deliver a locally-made soccer ball to underprivileged children in Africa while on safari, WE WILL MATCH YOUR DONATION! Here at TravelBoecker Adventures, we are proud of our special project, SPREAD THE SMILE.
You can still donate a soccer ball even if you are travelling to a destination other than Africa. See details or contact Christine Boecker for further information.

Many TravelBoecker Adventure clients enjoy giving back to the communities they visit.
K.Ray of Vancouver recalls: "Children would just materialize out of the forest and hills. Big soccer games just started out of the blue. We replaced one village 'ball' -- a grocery bag filled with other grocery bags. One of the best moments!" More...
