From enjoying the buzz of Vancouver to a train ride through the spectacular Rocky Mountains, Canada has so much to explore. British Columbia is spectacular, with sailing, whale watching and white water rafting available. With its mixture of cultures, French-speaking Quebec, and its capital Montreal to modern Toronto, Canada offers great city breaks as well as rugged and untouched landscapes. Despite its close proximity to the US, Canada has a fiercely independent character and is a veritable cultural melting pot, with influences as varying as French, British, Aboriginal and, of course, American.
There is never a bad time to take a trip to Canada – from skiing in winter and early spring, to touring, hiking and biking in summer and autumn there is always something going on. The second largest country in the world has sights and attractions to fill holiday after holiday. Natural parks galore are home to bald eagles, bears, wolves and lynxes and are a real treat for lovers of the great outdoors while it cities are fast becoming cosmopolitan hotspots with all the bustle of New York. See Niagara Falls from the other side of the border or even go polar bear spotting in Churchill, fuelling up on blueberry pancakes, waffles and maple syrup first, of course!
Spanning a total of six time zones and bordering three of the world's four oceans, Canada unifies incredible range and really exceed your expectations, whatever your passions!
