2007 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship Leksand and Mora, Sweden
Dec 28, 2006 to Jan 6, 2007
It was December 27, 1999 when a small group of 27 Canadians descended upon the small town of Skellefteå, Sweden for our very first World Junior Hockey Championship. The group, made up mostly of Team Canada parents and a few fans, represented Canada with residents from Victoria, BC to Bonavista, NF and all points in between. I remember enjoying the fireworks display as we rang in the new Millennium together in that little Swedish town just south of the Arctic Circle. It was also the first year we met Gord Miller, Bob McKenzie and the gang from TSN which was a big thrill for all. Oh yes, Team Canada won the bronze that year beating the USA in an exciting shootout - we will never forget it.
Since that year, Destiny Tours has escorted groups to the World Juniors in Moscow (2001), Czech Republic (2002), Halifax (2003), Helsinki (2004) and Grand Forks (2005). Our European groups have continued to grow in size year after year and in December of 2006 we will come full circle as we return to Sweden for the first time since it all began for us 7 years ago.
We invite you to join us for this very special "Homecoming" Tour to the 2007 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship in Leksand & Mora, Sweden.
