Day 1 Vancouver Williams Lake Nemiah Valley

Today, you will join a scheduled flight from Vancouver Airport South Terminal to Williams Lake Airport. From Williams Lake, you will be met by a representative of the lodge for a private transfer by SUV. The route takes you from Williams Lake across the Fraser River to the community of Tl’esqox. Together with a Cultural Ambassador, guests will visit the traditional fishing rocks of the Tsilhqot’in Nation at Farwell Canyon where traditional dip net fishing for that salmon occurs every year. Nearby rock pictograms tell the story of the Tsilhqot’in people and their arrival to this world from the Sky. After the tour, a lunch is provided with traditional foods like salmon, bannock or venison. Guests then continue in the van for another 90 minutes before arriving at the Lodge. En route, there is opportunity to see the wild horses of Nemiah grazing in the grasslands of the Chilcotin Plateau.

Arriving in the evening, get settled in and enjoy a delicious dinner made with traditional First Nations elements. During dinner, meet with your Xeni guide to receive an overview of tomorrow’s activities. Afterwards, you are treated to a Guest Orientation session & Tŝilhqot’in welcome, comprised of oral histories with a Cultural Ambassador.

The award is also a testament to the quality of our partners around the globe, and we take this opportunity to thank them for their tremendous support of our customers.

Are the Entire Travel Group holiday packages exclusive?

In some cases, we are the sole representative in Australia for the overseas travel operator. In other circumstances the product developed has been exclusively built for Entire Travel Group and can’t be found elsewhere.

What’s unique about Entire Travel Group Holiday Packages?

  • They are not group tours with set departures - they are pre-designed, purpose built, independent holiday packages full of unique and memorable experiences.
  • Our holiday packages have been exclusively built for us in collaboration with our handpicked suppliers, who also offer full on-ground support for the clients.
  • We are offering unique travel experiences which cannot be found elsewhere.

Our motto for Independent Holiday Packages is start your holiday when and with who you want!

Our Independent Holiday Packages are NOT group tours with set departure dates. Group Tours have specific set departure dates, and of course, you are travelling with unknown passengers in a coach. These tours are great for certain travellers and there are many reputable tour operators providing a wide range of options around the world.

At Entire Travel Group, our focus is Independent Holiday Packages. Available daily, they are pre-designed, purpose built, packaged itineraries full of memorable experiences delivered by our hand-picked local partners.

Our holidays suit every demographic, from couples to singles, to retirees to families and everyone else in between.

Why travel with Entire Travel Group?

Of Entire Travel Group's attributes, we have settled on "When Experience Matters" as the quality we believe adds the most value to our customers. We have the experience to ensure your itinerary makes the dream holiday possible. Our continually enhanced technology allows our team to provide a quality customer service experience, and our partnerships with outstanding operators ensure we are confident of the on-ground experience for our customers.

Can you book my international airfares?

On some Islands Holiday Packages (e.g. Fiji), it is practical to include flights, so where we have done this it is indicated by the plane icon.

However, on the majority of our Holiday Packages, we do not include international flights.

We found that many customers may prefer to:

  • Travel on a specific airline of their choice
  • Have the flexibility to book flights with Frequent Flyer points
  • Select flight dates that may be different to our Holiday Package start/end dates
  • Use a Travel Credit already held with the airline
  • Use their travel agent for this service

We are able to assist with flights on any Holiday Package, so please just notify us during the Book Now process or contact our team.

Should I take travel insurance?

Travel insurance is strongly recommended. During the Book Now process please confirm you require assistance, and our team will be in contact with you.

What should I do before travelling?

Before you travel it is your responsibility to ensure you have the appropriate documentation including visas. If you are travelling on a passport other than Australian or New Zealand, you will require a permit to re-enter Australia. It is your responsibility as the traveller and/or travel booker to meet all government entry requirements.

For more information please visit - Before you travel | Entire Travel Group
