One of the best ways to discover Canada is on a fly drive holiday. Choose one of our east or west coast tours, hire a car and get behind the wheel. Feel the freedom of the open road, stopping off wherever you please to explore your breath-taking surroundings, see some of the country’s most iconic wildlife and experience world-class dining, one road at a time.
Fly to Halifax and visit the Eastern Maritimes to discover rugged Atlantic coastline and picturesque fishing villages. On a holiday to New Brunswick you can explore the vibrant communities and cultures shaped by European and aboriginal settlers over the last thousand years on our ‘A Journey Beyond Nature’ tour.
Nature is paramount on a west coast fly drive, as you drive through the Rocky Mountains or the wilderness of British Columbia. Fly into the ‘Stampede City’ of Calgary and explore the legendary Rocky Mountains; prepare to be amazed as you drive past glistening lakes, rugged mountains and through the popular mountain towns of Banff and Jasper.
As well as simply sitting back and admiring the beautiful views, there are many exciting activities to enjoy on your fly drive holiday to Canada. On the east coast, discover Canada’s most populous city, the cosmopolitan Toronto. Just a two-hour drive from Toronto is the world-famous Niagara Falls, one of Canada’s most popular attractions; watch as the cascading water crashes to the ground below, and experience it up close on the Hornblower or Maid of the Mist cruise boats. Prepare to get wet!
Western Canada is a natural playground, designed to be explored. With opportunities for hiking, biking, kayaking and more. Try our ‘Western Delights Holiday’ tour and experience a real mountain safari, as you trek through Kootenay National Park and Okanagan Valley.
Canada’s wildlife is abundant, and you won’t be short of opportunities to spot animals in their natural habitats on your fly drive holiday. Keep your eyes peeled for whales, bears, eagles, wolves and moose, as well as a wealth of other animals en route on any of our fly drive holidays to Canada.
Of course, with all that driving you’re going to get hungry! So why not combine your fly drive holiday to Canada with some of the best of the country’s cuisine. Don’t forget to sample poutine, which is a delicious Canadian dish of chips with gravy and cheese curds, in the poutine capital of the world, Quebec! In the west, try our ‘Western Delight’ tour, which includes a traditional BBQ steak cookout under the stars in Banff – it’s the cowboy way!
