Winter Holidays in Canada

Canada's not just for summer

Canada isn't just for summer. And the winter isn't all about skiing and après, either! Canada does have incredible powder snow and world-class ski resorts, granted. But it also has crisp blue skies, the Northern Lights, sleigh rides, dog-sledding, ice climbing, glaciers and tons more activities on offer.

Dog sledding in the Rockies

One of the most iconic winter experiences in Canada. Settle back into a cosy, fur-lined sled or mush your own team of huskies beneath the snowy mountain peaks. Dog sled tours can last from a couple of hours to a whole day, with treats like campfires and hot chocolate. Meeting the friendly huskies is definitely a highlight.

Adventure in Whistler

Whistler’s not just for ski. It’s a resort for everyone with a lovely pedestrian village, beautiful hotels and lodges and two huge mountains to enjoy. There are plenty of non-ski activities like snow-shoeing, tubing, tobogganing and zip lining. Plus, some incredible spas! You’ll be planning your return before you’ve dusted the snow off your boots.
