Find out where everything is in Canada with our useful Province guide and maps.
Historic lighthouses casting their beams over rocky coasts slick with sea spray. Tiny pubs where fiddlers keep things lively until the wee hours. And lobster so fresh it was swimming in the ocean this morning. The charms of Canada’s Atlantic provinces are timeless, and the variety in these four friendly provinces is astonishing. Meet hardy fishermen in remote settlements on the rugged coast of Labrador or sip a fragrant espresso in Halifax’s Historic Properties. Touch the ancient remnants of Viking settlements at L’Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland or tap your toes at an Acadian festival in New Brunswick. Inhale the rich scent of apple blossoms as you cycle along a quiet recreational path in Prince Edward Island or relish the freedom of the road on the winding curves of Cape Breton’s dramatic Cabot Trail.
In the heartland of Canada’s two European founding cultures, French and English traditions come together in an unforgettable landscape of countless lakes and dramatic Canadian Shield granite. Like a voyageur of old, dip your canoe paddle into a serene river shaded by maple trees vivid with gold and scarlet autumn leaves. Slip into the timeless, carefree culture of cottage country, where the most pressing question of the day may be what is on the menu for dinner. In Toronto or Montréal, linger over tantalizing dishes with their roots in Africa, South America, Asia or the Caribbean. Strike up a conversation in a gallery-café and discover that your companion is the artist who painted the striking works for sale. Find yourself photographing polar bears on the shore of Hudson Bay one day and touring an award- winning winery a few days later.
Above you, the sky is putting on a show no pyrotechnics expert could begin to rival. Jewel-like tones of emerald and purple pulse against the inky night sky. You are hundreds of kilometres from the nearest city and an infinite distance from the world you know. Here on the edge of the Arctic Circle, people live by the traditions that have sustained them in this harshly beautiful environment for hundreds of years. And on this unforgettable journey, you have the chance to share this legacy. Taste the rich flavour of caribou. Celebrate the brief but spectacular Arctic summer, when the landscape blooms with lichen and tiny flowers, and arctic hares bound away from your footsteps. Meet Inuit elders and soapstone carvers. Shout with delight as you guide a dog team or drive a snowmobile. Encounter a land unlike any other you have ever visited.
Rocky peaks dusted with snow pierce the clear blue sky. It is hard to conceive that nature can be so vast and so unspoiled –but believe it. From the golden wheat fields of the prairies and the undulating foothills of the Rockies outside Calgary, to the isolated Queen Charlotte Islands on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, Western Canada is blessed with immense scenic riches. Hike across an ancient glacier, along the shore of an aquamarine alpine lake or through forests resonant with birdsong. Sip fine wines in a vineyard café in the Okanagan Valley or go horseback riding on country trails at a guest ranch. Explore Canada’s only desert. And when you have had your fill of nature – if that is possible – enjoy the urban pleasures of bustling Calgary, friendly Edmonton, elegant Victoria and dynamic Vancouver.
