WESTERN EXPRESS 2021
Our 11- night Western Express tour gets you on the ice, in the stands and behind the scenes of world-class hockey stadiums every day. Plus, you get up close and personal NSA coaching for an all-round hockey immersive experience. If you’re a hockey fan and player, this is “the trip of a lifetime”. Visit our testimonials page to see what our 2016 Jackaroos had to say about their experience.
Where you’ll stay and where you’ll go.
Arrive in America's playground Las Vegas Nevada and explore the city at your own pace. Stretch your legs on the Las Vegas strip, eat, drink and shop in some of the worlds largest casinos and shopping malls. Overnight at The New York, New York Hotel, catch a Golden Knights game at T-Mobile Arena, then head to your Canadian home away from home, The Fairmont Palliser Hotel, Calgary. Settle in and prepare for an intensive hockey experience. When you’re not playing, practicing and watching hockey (or talking about it over a well-earned drink), you’ll be soaking in hot springs, exploring the Rockies, visiting beautiful Banff, maybe trying your hand at curling or let out a Yeehaw on "Taco" - Ranchmans' mechanical bull.
let our team do the rest.
We do the rest: organize your flights, accommodation, day trips and all transport to and around Calgary. We get you kitted out, arrange a schedule of training and games against some friendly, yet competitive locals, and get you in the stands for some NHL, WHL and University hockey action. All you do is live, breathe and play hockey. Skill is optional. Attitude is everything. A great time is compulsory.
