From majestic mountains to vibrant cities
Why book a holiday to Canada
There are so many reasons to explore Canada on a holiday. It's home to breath-taking vistas, world-famous lakes, incredible wildlife, and vibrant cities. Spectacular landscapes span from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. Explore the majestic Canadian Rockies where emerald lakes mirror snow-capped peaks. Fly in a helicopter over Niagara Falls or witness one of nature’s most stunning displays on Earth, the Northern Lights. You can visit British Columbia to see grizzly bears, Manitoba to meet polar bears, Vancouver Island to catch a glimpse of whales and Ontario to meet the famous Canadian moose. Among all this untamed wilderness, bustling cosmopolitan cities like Toronto and Vancouver offer abundant shopping and entertainment opportunities.
How to explore Canada
Canada is the largest country in North America and every corner of it has its own charm and attractions and can be explored in various ways. There are direct flights from the UK to Toronto and Vancouver year-round. Roads in Canada are made for driving, so it is up to you to decide if you want to hire a car or RV on a self-drive holiday roaming British Columbia and Alberta or Ontario and the Maritime provinces. There is the iconic Rocky Mountaineer train crossing the Rockies, Alaska cruises departing from Vancouver, escorted tours with expert guides, bear viewing and whale watching tours, world-class ski resorts such as Whistler, city breaks to iconic Canadian cities and trans-Canada rail service by Via Rail.
Western Canada & Alaska Holidays
Western Canada is home to the Canadian Rockies, Banff National Park and Lake Louise, world-class ski slopes and Vancouver Island. See stunning mountain routes only accessible by rail with the Rocky Mountaineer, or cruise along Alaska’s Inside Passage on a cruise departing from Vancouver. Take a road trip through Alberta and British Columbia on a fly-drive or motorhome holiday. Pair the ocean with mountains on a Vancouver city break. Spot grizzly bears in the great outdoors or experience whale watching with expert guides. Holidays to Western Canada include activities for every taste. Enjoy family-friendly outdoor activities such as kayaking and hiking or go skiing and snowshoeing with friends at famous ski resorts. You can also enjoy coach journeys or try exclusive experiences like helicopter fly-fishing on our luxury Canada holidays.
Eastern Canada Holidays
Eastern Canada is most well-known for the mighty Niagara Falls. But this part of Canada has so much more to offer. Take a road trip via Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI, and see the most-photographed lighthouse in Canada, Peggy’s Cove, the picturesque Lunenburg, and witness the world’s highest tides in the Bay of Fundy. A motorhome holiday via the Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario during autumn offers you stunning scenery of the golden fall foliage. You can even encounter the iconic moose. Scale the CN Tower in Toronto or take a stroll down the cobbled streets of Quebec City. City-hop on Canada’s lively east coast with VIA Rail. Or get close to 10,000-year-old icebergs along the shores of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Northern Canada Holidays
Canada is well-known for its wilderness, but it is Yukon and northern Manitoba that are a true symbol of untamed Canadian nature and is a paradise for true outdoor lovers. About 80% of Yukon is completely wild. It is home to Kluane National Park, a vast wilderness of icefields, Canada’s highest peak Mount Logan and forests. Yukon has one of the longest Northern Lights seasons, rich Gold Rush history and some of the most scenic roads you can explore on a Canada fly-drive holiday. Manitoba on the other hand is famed for Hudson Bay and the world’s polar bear capital, Churchill. Our polar bear watching holidays are a unique guided adventure in the wilds of the tundra in search of polar bears.
Best time to visit Canada
It really depends on what you want to see and do during your Canada holidays. Summer is the best season for outdoor adventures, such as hiking and kayaking. It is warm and sunny, and the perfect time to rent a car or RV and embark on a road trip. Autumn is when the temperatures drop but you have the greatest chance to enjoy wildlife viewing, such as spotting grizzly bears in British Columbia. Spring is less crowded and although mountain peaks are snow-capped, there is lots of sunshine. Winters are cold and the regular snowfall in the Canadian Rockies set ideal conditions for winter activities. Canada is home to great cosmopolitan cities, as well. Toronto, Vancouver, and French-speaking Montreal are just a few of the many choices for a city break regardless of the season.
