About Us

Leavetown was founded in 2008 in Canmore, Alberta, a friendly mountain town and gateway to the Canadian Rockies. I had just relocated to Canada from England, and was looking forward to enjoying the best skiing, hiking and flying Canada had to offer.

My previous career in telecommunications and my love of adventure had taken me to many far-flung places, and over my lifetime of travelling I had become frustrated with large, corporate travel booking websites. They were too impersonal, and did not understand or care to ask about my unique wants and desires as a traveller. I knew I could do much, much better and set out to launch Leavetown – a unique and personable travel specialist serving mountain and nature destinations across Canada.

What makes Leavetown different is that our team is made up of a team of passionate travellers and outdoor activity seekers that live, work and play in the destinations we serve. Our talented and caring Destination Experts are only a phone call away and love to help you find the perfect accommodations, activities and local deals, meaning your vacation planning process becomes completely headache-free!

I welcome you to Leavetown with us. Our backyard is a truly incredible place to explore!
