Field Trips

MagicBus Tours is a local operator which has been known for taking skiers and boarders to ride the Canadian Rocky Mountains since 1992. Assembling high-quality trips that are a good value has always been a part of our business, and this attracted many corporate clients and groups to us. Alberta schools have long made alpine sports a part of the curriculum and MagicBus stepped forward to deliver a new approach that made planning and producing adventures easy, affordable and most of all, safe. Soon, schools from all over the province were including MagicBus as part of their annual offering to
their students.

Since then, MagicBus has been partnering with schools beyond the slopes and the winter season. We offer a variety of adventure options that educational professionals can use towards their curriculum as an alternative learning resource or for that exciting year-end trip.

The Educational Benefits of Field Trips Last a Lifetime!

Hands-on Learning

Field trips offer direct experiences, allowing students to see and touch what they're learning in class, making abstract concepts more tangible and boosting comprehension and retention.

Real-World Application

Connect classroom knowledge to practical, real-life situations, helping students see the relevance of their education at historical sites, museums, or businesses.

Cultural & Social Exposure

Foster cultural awareness, tolerance, and empathy by exposing students to diverse cultures, environments, and social situations.

Motivate and Engage

Ignite students' curiosity and interest, driving them to explore subjects further. Anticipation of field trips boosts classroom participation and engagement as students eagerly await hands-on experiences.

MagicBus packages cater to the needs of the students while meeting the expectations of the school administration. Our tours travel on reliable motor coaches, stay in clean, comfortable locations with simple supervision tactics, ride mountains with excellent ski schools and safe rental programs. Supervisors are provided complimentary packages based on a minimum ratio of 1:10 as an incentive and to ensure safety and group behavior standards!

Our teacher partners enjoy using our online tour management portal to keep track of their trip. Our system generates all the details for their tour and sends it to our partners. From day trips to lengthy overnight excursions, MagicBus has been called upon to build specialized itineraries and offers a variety of destinations across Canada, all year round.

Year-End Trips
A year-end trip provides students with an opportunity to celebrate their academic achievements, bond with classmates, and create lasting memories outside the classroom environment. It offers a break from routine and serves as a reward for their hard work throughout the school year, fostering a sense of accomplishment and motivation for the future.
Outdoor Education
Outdoor education is essential because it exposes students to the natural world, fostering a deep appreciation for the environment and promoting physical activity and health. Additionally, it teaches vital life skills like problem-solving, teamwork, and self-reliance in real-world, outdoor settings.
Physical Fitness
These trips are crucial for promoting a healthy lifestyle and encouraging regular physical activity among students. These outings not only contribute to physical well-being but also teach teamwork, sportsmanship, and the importance of an active lifestyle, instilling healthy habits that can last a lifetime.

Visiting museums or heritage sites allows students to connect with history, culture, and art in a tangible and immersive way, fostering a deeper appreciation for the past and its impact on the present. These experiences provide valuable insights into human achievements, struggles, and innovations, enriching our understanding of the world and our place within it.
Government & Politics
Visiting government sites and a nation's capital provides a firsthand opportunity for students to better understand the functioning of their government, including the legislative, executive, and judicial branches, fostering a sense of civic engagement and knowledge about the democratic process. It also offers a chance to explore historical landmarks, cultural institutions, and the rich heritage of a nation, deepening one's appreciation for its history and governance.
Cultural Immersion
Cultural immersion allows students to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of different cultures, fostering tolerance and empathy. It provides a firsthand opportunity to experience diverse traditions, lifestyles, and perspectives, contributing to their personal growth and global awareness.
General Outings
Organizing an outing can offer alternative learning experiences that go beyond traditional classrooms, allowing students to explore subjects like science through the arts, math through snowshoeing.
