World Traveler and Travel Consultant
I believe that if you travel with an open mind and an open heart, the world will unfold its magic.
Discover the majestic, untouched beauty of the Arctic and Antarctic.
Experience the wonders of Africa’s rich and varied cultures and wildlife.
DISCOVER THE WORLD
Explore anything and everything our world has to offer.
Travel, travel, travel…..you want to travel to the most amazing places in the world?
Arctic? Antarctic? Easter Islands? Iles Marquesas? Polynesian Islands? India? Ecuador and Galapagos? Siberia? Argentina and Chile? Scotland? Iceland? France? Norway?Tanzania? Ethiopia? South Africa? Morocco? Nunavut? Burma? Indonesia? Space travel?
And you wonder where to start?
The web is over-saturated with information, but is it legitimate? We hear there are loads of fraudulent operations out there. How can you securely book your trip without any of these negative doubts?
Is there someone out there who can guide me? Help me organise a “peace of mind” travel experience?

Let me introduce, myself: Carole Gobeil, World Traveler and Travel Consultant.
Here I am today, with travel to all seven continents, 43 years in the travel and tourism industry, and a great following of amazing clients who call on me to make it all their travel plans come alive. I love them and I love the challenges they throw at me.
I add value, I add personal recommendations, I look at ways to save you frustrations and costs. I find ways to bypass the middle man. I love being creative and different with my thematic voyages. (example, a personalised Scotch tour of Scotland).
I am well connected with small operators from around the world to help me customize the most unique itineraries.

I know the differences between all the polar travel companies. They are all good but they are all different, like you. I find the itinerary that will best answer to all your bucket list needs. And you will be well prepared for your upcoming Arctic or Antarctic adventure.
I am a veteran consultant in the adventure travel business before it even became trendy, and I keep myself updated with their latest destinations and styles, for my many single (and couples) adventurous clients.
Enjoy my “artsy” website with fun quotes and photos. Amazing moments that I experienced during my travels, now sharing with you, yes ”unique you” who want to dare visit a new corner of the world, without fear, and with a “peace of mind”. I will take care of all the logistics from A to Z.
You are more than welcomed to contact me. I look forward meeting you…unique you!
