about us

Hofman International Inc. was founded in 1993 by Karel Hofman who is originally from the former Czechoslovakia. Karel started Hofman International Inc. to help develop trade and promote services between Canada and the Czech Republic after the Eastern Block break in 1989. At the beginning, his love and passion for nature, especially for the Alberta Rocky Mountains, helped him to invite many groups of tourists to Canada. During their vacations in Canada, several of his clients found new opportunities in new markets in North America and became business customers and partners of Hofman International Inc.

Although tourism is not the main business segment of Hofman International anymore, Karel Hofman seldom refuses to show his pride of the magnificent Eastern Slopes, and welcomes any reason to escape with his friends and clients to the mountains which helped him to create his business over 30 years ago.
