 AZORCAN  WORLD JUNIOR HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPS 2020 TOUR


Prague, Czech Republic
World Juniors Tour Manager
With 22 years of European sports group travel experience, Azorcan invites you to join us as we cheer on Canada in the Czech Republic. We were in the Czech Republic with a small group of friends in 2007 when Canada won gold.

With the urging of some firends we decided to take a larger group to Malmo, Sweden for the 2014 event. We opened it up for others to join us and in the end we had 86 passionate Canadian fans on the tour.

Malmo was such a great success that we did a tour to the 2016 World Juniors in Helsinki. This time we had 170 Canadian fans and it was great to see so many that went to Malmo join us again in Finland. This time we also added an extension after the World Juniors to go to Stockholm, Sweden.


We look to build on our experiences in Malmo and Helsinki to make the tour to the Czech Republic even more memorable, more exciting and add more value for money for all who attend. Azorcan has been taking groups to the Czech Republic on an annual basis since 1994 and Prague is almost a second home to us. Our contacts, vast experience and great sightseeing we can include will make this tour the best ever.

The host city has not yet been announced for the World Juniors in the Czech Republic but last time when it was held in Liberec and Pardubice we stayed in Prague as there is much more to see and do there. We bused to the games in those towns. Once the city is confirmed we will adjust our itinerary if required. With the recent growth of the tournament in Europe, I expect that the World Juniors tournament will be held in Prague and area.

In adition to the time in Prague for the tournament, we are offering different options with opportunities to spend time in Munich, Ceske Krumlov, Vienna and Salzburg. These are proposed at this time and we may change them as we get closer to the World Juniors. They will be finalized when we first start taking deposits for the tour in late 2018.


I look forward to sharing this once in a lifetime experience with you in the Czech Republic and celebrating a golden moment for Canadian hockey.

2016 - Helsinki World Juniors Tour Testimonials
I took my daughter on the World Juniors tour to Helsinki and it was amazing!   The tour was so well put together, with absolutely everything taken care of.  There were even little surprises along the way.  The tours of Tallin ( and their beautiful Christmas market), Turku and Suomenlinna (to name a few) were so well organized and interesting.  You received a guided tour and then had time to explore on your own.  The buses were great (and always on time), the hockey seats were fantastic and all of the people on the tour with us were so friendly and fun.  Paul went out of his way to make sure that everything was taken care and that everyone had what they needed.  We are definitely considering the 2020 World Junior tour, and if you are looking for a tour company to take care of your group, definitely give Paul at Azorcan a call!
Laurie Schneider
- World Juniors 2016 Helsinki

We had so much fun in Finland!! The WJ2016 was great, the fans out of this world, and the day tours of Finland and Stockholm, Sweden hit the top spots that I had researched. The day trip by ferry to Tallinn was our favourite outing - such a quaint little spot complete with the gorgeous Christmas market. Paul organizes the tour so that there is lots of time to do your own sightseeing and the group tours allow everyone to go at their own pace. The hotel location was exceptional (again) and the group dinners always have great food. We have toured with Paul at Azorcan for two World Juniors, and we wouldn’t miss WJ 2020 for the world!
Sheri Gagne - World Juniors 2016 Helsinki

THANKS so much again for our wonderful experience and we are counting the sleeps to 2020!
Lynda Martin - World Juniors 2016 Helsinki

Our trip to the 2016 World Juniors in Finland with Azorcan was fantastic. Paul did a great job with all the travel details. The accommodations were great and the included breakfast choices were amazing. Buses ran on time to all the games and the seats were outstanding. The side tours were interesting leaving just enough time to explore on one's own. All in all a great experience with friendly people. We are seriously considering Prague in 2020.

2014 - Malmo World Juniors Tour Testimonials
The experience of a lifetime! Paul’s outstanding organizational skills and his caring personality made our trip to the 2014 IIHF World Juniors in Sweden a wonderful family experience.  The accommodations, busses, hockey games and seating were excellent and all 86 of us were proud to wear our special Azorcan Polar Bear jerseys. The Sweden and Copenhagen tours were fantastic; the fireworks at Malmo's New Year’s Eve celebrations were truly unforgettable. A champagne toast to a job well done!!
Sheri Gagne - World Juniors 2014 Malmo

Just wanted to send a note to thank you and your colleagues for a great trip and experience! We all really enjoyed the trip and miss Malmo a lot. We all really had a great time. The trip was really well organized; the excursions were fun and interesting and we really appreciated how you guys added in the extras of the jerseys, the Team Canada memorabilia and the extra bus trips to/from games, etc. Well done!
Mark Coady - World Juniors 2014 Malmo

Paul, I just wanted to take a moment and indeed say a huge “thank you “ on behalf of myself and my son Daniel. We both felt you went out of your way to ensure ….and I’ll use your words…that everyone got value for their money. We had in my son’s words – “the trip of a lifetime” and created some incredible memories together of the World Juniors in Malmo.
Andrew Huntley - World Juniors 2014 Malmo

Just wanted to say thanks again for putting together the trip to Malmo, it was such a great time.  Michelle mentioned more than once to me how she was having so much more fun than she expected. Originally we had the mindset that this was going to be a “once in a lifetime” trip; but now we are seriously considering Finland as a possibility for 2015/16.
Jay Reid - World Juniors 2014 Malmo

Just wanted to send a huge thank you to you and your group for a truly unforgettable and amazing trip to the World Junior's in Malmo, Sweden! Your professionalism, attention to detail and personable service is second to none!  Our whole family will always cherish this trip and will hold every one of our memories for a lifetime.  Everything from the hockey and tours, to the sitting and chatting, was just an incredible experience.From all of us....thank you....and we will definitely see you (& Jaakko....to return the gold medal to Canada) in Finland!
