Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

The Burleigh Travel Team

Burleigh Travel attend Canada Tourism's Shared Canada Event 2014

Canada Sports Tour Profile Expands

In February 2014 my colleague, Rob Morris and I visited the London Film Museum on London's South Bank to attend the second Canada Shared Pop Up Event, organised by Tourism Canada, to gain a greater understanding of what activities can be included in our sports tours to Canada. The event brought together 54 Canadian Tourism Organisations for an intense day of face to face networking and education.

The day was spent one-to-one speed networking with representatives form attractions, accommodations and activity providers from across Canada, before the event was rounded off with an informal networking evening and reception.

During the event, we were able to gain a greater insight into the Algonquin wilderness; an area in Canada that gives sports teams the opportunity to participate in award-winning, nationally recognized Canadian Signature experiences such as:

  • Stand up Paddle Boarding
  • Dog Sledding
  • Canoe/Camping Trips
  • Wildlife Safari

Algonquin is an ideal area for school, junior or adult sports tours that are looking to experience Canada's great outdoors. Being based in the depths of the Algonquin Park Forest, away from the technologies of the modern world, you have no excuse but to enjoy the company of your colleagues and peers whilst enjoying fun outdoor activities, and relaxing evenings toasting marshmallows around the campfire.


We have organised a number of successful sports tours to Canada and look forward to expanding our Canadian Sports Tour portfolio through exciting new relationships made at this event.

Many of our team visited Canada on familiarisation trips, with touring groups or on personal vacation so as a company we have knowledge of what is needed to make a sports tour to Canada extremely successful.

If you would like to arrange a Sports Tour to Canada to include a wilderness experience in the Algonquin region of Canada, visit our website and submit and online enquiry to receive your tailored Canadian Sports Tour Itinerary; we look forward to sharing this exciting opportunity with you.
