LOL!

I have been trying to find the same thing buddy with NO luck.

I also looked into info on costs, times, hotels etc for Malmo Sweden (2014) and nothing.

**

My gf and I went to the WJR's in Buffalo and it was GREAT (minus the FINAL period) - met a bunch of amazing people and we want to do it again.

The problem...

WJR's in Canada - hard(!) to get tickets. If you do they are expensive!
WJR's in Europe - easy to get tickets, hard and expensive to get there. Who wants to spend Christmas on a plane? Not me...

We have decided to go to the WJR's in 2018 in the US. Won't be too expesive. Won't be too hard to get there.

Question please...

Start to finish (including hotel, plane, meals and tickets), how much did the trip cost you?

Also, how long were your flights?

Thanks for your input.

Hi Warren,

Forgive me but your post is so vague I am not getting the info I need.

You said "we", so I am assuming 2. How much did it cost the 2 of you, start to finish? Please include flight, tickets, meals and hotel. I am assuming you went for the whole tournament.

Just a ball park number so I have a perspective and can pitch it to my gf.

Thank you for you time/input.

I wrote Destiny...

No pricing yet but I think it will be quite expensive. Too bad.

I sure would love to go.

Hi,

I'm new to this forum and came across it while researching Destiny Tours. I'm hoping to go to the tournament in Sweden and am wondering how hard it would be to buy all of Team Canada's games without knowing which quarterfinal/semifinal games they could be playing in?

It seemed like Density tours would be a good way to get guaranteed tickets but I think it would be cheaper plan the trips by myself. I also couldn't find any reviews on Destiny tours.

Thank you! It's interesting to see they have them planned that far ahead. I'd imagine they'd have one in Toronto or the London area.

I think it will be awesome to see it in Russia, they deserve it I believe. I think it means a lot to them, maybe almost as much as it does to us Canadians? lol Not that it doesn't mean a lot to other countries too but Russians are just diehard fans and the rivalry is so historic so I think it would be great. I'd actually love to see Russia too, wish I could go!! I could use a bit of the Russian I learned in school years ago.

Hi Warren, I'm looking for the same info. Also looked at destiny tours; no prices till Feb. However their prices for previous trips seem very high, I'm sure it can be done much cheaper if you're prepared to spend some time on the net doing the research, I've done the world Juniors twice; Fussen Germany (Lindros) and Heksinki, Finland (Crosby, Ovechkin, Semin). Very enjoyable hockey experiences. For Helsinki I bought 4 tickets on the blue line about 15 rows from the ice; total cost for 4 tickets for all the games not just Canada's was $1285.00 CAD. I plan to buy tickets on my own somehow, book a hotel thru the internet (direct with a hotel, not thru a middle man), find the best flight deal from Toronto to Moscow then take the train to Ufa. I lived in Sochi, Russia for three years and travelled extensively by train which I really enjoyed (cheap as dirt). This way you are not dictated by a tour company schedule; your time is your own. I chuckled when I read some comments of guys taking their girlfriends, reminds me of the saying; would you take a ham sandwich to a banquet?

I've been trying to find information on the 2013 tournament in Russia as well. I don't really want to use 'Destiny Tours' either, but that seems to be the only indication the tournament is actually going to be in Ufa.

I find it very hard to believe the Russians are not more organized than this... I've tried the websites for the Russian Ice Hockey Federation and the new junior league - MHL. I've even looked at the website for the City of Ufa and there is not even mention that the tournament is coming to the City. This all seems very strange to me.

If anyone can provide more information or supply a link for more information it would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers;

B.
