Canada is the second largest country in the world, boasts some striking landscapes and offers a wealth of wildlife encounters and vast range of adventures and experiences.
The sheer scale of this vast country lends itself to memorable journeys, whether it’s a Trans-Canada train ride from east to west, a leisurely cruise through the fjords of the Pacific coast or a scenic self-drive adventure. Meander past the glaciers of the Icefields Parkway, around the Cabot Trail’s rugged shores, or cross the Arctic Circle on the Dempster Highway. More remote areas can be reached by floatplane, offering the chance for a birds-eye view over forests, mountains and sparkling lakes.
Culturally, Canada does not disappoint. Experience the excitement of the big vibrant cities of Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver and uncover the traditions of First Nations people. Immerse yourself in the French history of Québec or explore the remote villages of the Atlantic coast, rich in Celtic influences or head further north to discover the isolated Inuit communities.
With such diversity Canada encourages a repeat visit - rather than trying to see everything in one holiday, we recommend focusing on one or two provinces at a time, and exploring them at a leisurely pace. The mountains and wildlife of BC and Alberta are popular for first time visitors, whilst Ontario and Québec provide an equally beautiful but very different landscape of forests and lakes. Head off the beaten track to the wild Yukon or experience the quirky charm of the Atlantic provinces.

Bears and Whales
Wildlife encounters form an important part of many holidays to Canada, with arguably bears and whales being the biggest draw. From the mighty Polar bear in Churchill, Manitoba to British Columbia’s rare Kermode bear, Canada’s bears are a sight to behold. Look out for black bears roaming the forests or take in the spectacular sight of grizzlies fishing for salmon.
