Canada is a country of extremes. It has some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere in the world, some of the biggest expenses in North America, fantastic cities and beautiful coastlines. Plus of course, the extreme temperatures – with plenty to do for those who like to explore in the summer, and snowy paradise in the winter for those who just love to ski.
The country has an endless array of different landscapes, with the famous Rocky Mountains, stunning islands and rivers, national parks, rainforests, glaciers and beaches. Yes, you can even meet bears, moose and whales.
We highly recommend one of the ‘musts’ on a holiday to Canada, the Rocky Mountaineer, taking you on a breathtaking journey through the Rockies from Banff to Vancouver (or the other way around), right from your own armchair aboard the specially designed train.
BEST TIME TO VISIT
SUMMER – Perfect time for an outdoors holiday in the Rockies, or a cruise up the Alaskan coast.
WINTER – Head to the slopes, with some of the best skiing in North America.
Between 5 hours to the eastern seaboard, through to 10 hours to Vancouver on the west coast.
There is something for everyone in Spain. Great food, architecture, music, scenery and the priority for many great beach resorts.
HOW TO GET THERE
There are multiple daily flights to the main cities of Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto, with summer flights to Nova Scotia, Quebec City and Calgary.

IDEAL TO COMBINE WITH
There is so much in Canada to explore, that you wouldn’t want to go elsewhere – but it does work well with Hawaii or New York.
