Martin Flanagan

Did I mention yet that I love what I do? I have created my dream job of showing lovely people from all over the world the beauty of North America. Come share my energy and enthusiasm in what I do. As owner of Gaia Travel Services since 1995, I have travelled extensively throughout all corners of Western Canada. My love of nature, people, travel and attention to detail has led to the creation of tours adapted to my clients' expectations. I speak fluent English and German and my French is pretty good (still haven't started learning the language yet though).

Travis Oberkirsch

Saskatchewan born and bred, it would make you wonder how he got a German last name. Travis' dynamic personality and willingness to learn more makes him an excellent guide. Travis guides our Western Canada and Yukon/ Alaska trips. So far he speaks English and German, but don't be surprised if he's fluent in Spanish in the next few years.
