Brewster Travel Canada Acquires Maligne Tours Ltd.

BANFF, Alberta and JASPER, Alberta – Brewster Travel Canada announced that it has acquired Maligne Tours Ltd. in Jasper National Park. The acquisition of Maligne Tours Ltd. is aligned with Brewster Travel Canada’s strategy to deliver integrated and exceptional experiences within the Canadian Rockies, from world-class attractions to unique accommodations to breathtaking sightseeing excursions.

“The entire Brewster team is very excited to add this iconic and successful business to our portfolio of unique and family-friendly experiences in Jasper National Park,” said Dave McKenna, President of Brewster Travel Canada. “We look forward to opening in the spring of 2016 and working with the existing staff and the experts at Parks Canada to ensure Maligne Lake’s culture and heritage is preserved for future generations of visitors to enjoy.”

This acquisition is united not only by a common passion for the Canadian Rockies, but also with the history and origin of Maligne Tours; as Frederick Brewster was one of the founding fathers of Maligne Lake-based expeditions and excursions in the early 1910’s. In the present day, the Maligne Lake experience is a natural complement to Brewster’s other attractions in Jasper National Park, the Glacier Adventure and Glacier Skywalk, as well as Brewster’s long-standing Explore Jasper sightseeing tour.
