Skeena Trips Just Got Cheaper!

Because of the recent changes from the federal Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) back to the old Government Sales Tax (GST) system in British Columbia, our trips have just gotten a slight break in price.  As of April 1, 2013, the GST is now in effect.  So, if you are a Canadian resident, taxes on trip costs will fall from 12% under the HST system to 5% for GST, and from 6% HST to 2.5% for GST if you're joining us from outside of Canada (including the non-resident rebate for tour packages). 

In the end, this means your total trip costs will be less, providing you with further savings on your trip - and more money in your pocket, which is always a good thing...
