Holidays to Canada

Known for its vast and breathtaking natural landscapes - think rugged mountains, seemingly endless coastlines, vast expanses of untouched wilderness, sparkling lakes and glaciers, and pristine forests - there’s more to Canada than you may believe. Your outdoor playground awaits with thrilling float planes, kayaking along stunning coastlines and high speed zodiacs to get the best opportunity for those perfect bear and whale photos! But it’s not just for the outdoorsy. The country has repeatedly been named as one of the most liveable in the world, and much of that praise is thanks to the beautiful cities that are clean, safe, diverse and friendly.

The food in Canada often isn’t the first point of discussion, but there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be. There’s plenty to keep your tastebuds happy in the great white north. Wild salmon, succulent lobster... should we go on? Ok. Drizzle your pancakes in maple syrup for breakfast, chomp into a bison burger in a local diner, sink your teeth into a succulent Albertan steaks and munch on pierogies in a corner Manitoban café.  One of our favourites has to be poutine! - chips topped with squeaky cheese curds and rich gravy, something that has to be tried.  Eclectic just doesn’t quite cover it!

Whether you're looking for a self-drive adventure, or to sit back and relax on one of the many picturesque rail journeys, it’s no surprise that the second largest country in the world (spanning a whopping six time zones) is incredibly diverse. Practice your French with a café au lait in Québec, or head to an Asian night market in Vancouver's Chinatown. Acquaint yourself with the various indigenous cultures that span the country and check out the history of Canada’s maritime past.

Canada oozes culture. From Toronto’s world class theatre to the ancient fort of Québec City (one of the oldest European settlements in North America) and on to the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, the arts are an integral part of the cultural landscape of this beautiful country. Including Ottawa’s National Gallery and Montreal’s Jazz Festival, there's a lot to keep visitors busy in Canada, not least the Calgary Stampede held every July, when the whole city is taken over by cowboys - grab your stetson!

But the real star of the show has to be the great outdoors. Few countries have the range of natural wonders that Canada calls its own. Some of the most spectacular scenes in the country include Banff National Park, the world-renowned Niagara Falls, the awe-inspiring Northern Lights, and the countless breath-taking lakes.
