Featured Destination: Canada

March 5, 2018

 

It should come as no surprise that we enjoy sending clients to Canada

 

With a team of country specialists, clients that come back with wonderful stories to tell, and an endless array of experiences on offer - we just can’t get enough of the region. 

 

From the stunning coastal scenery to the wheat fields in the Prairie Provinces, Canada is extravagantly diverse.

 
Each area is unique, with its own charm. Exceptional wildlife, exciting cosmopolitan cities, remote lodges and resorts, world-famous rail journeys and cruises – you can experience it all.

  
The sheer size of the country limits what you can sensibly see and do, without constantly moving around, but our expertise will help shape the perfect itinerary.

 

 

British Columbia 

 

British Columbia has some of the country's most spectacular scenery ranging from mountain to ranch lands and coast. This province offers exceptional wildlife viewing, including black, grizzly and Spirit Bear together with orca and humpback whale watching. Vancouver is the gateway city for Alaska cruises and the Rocky Mountaineer train, while Victoria, the provincial capital, enchants visitors at any time of year.  

 

 

Alberta 

 

Alberta is best known for Banff and Jasper National Parks with their majestic Rocky Mountain scenery. Here you can walk on the surface of the Athabasca Glacier and travel the Icefields Parkway considered to be one of Canada’s most scenic drives. Calgary hosts the ‘Greatest Outdoor Show in the World’ – the Calgary Stampede each July while Edmonton, the provincial capital, is known as Festival City.   

 

 

Manitoba  

 

Manitoba offers First Nations culture, Northern Lights viewing but is best known for Churchill on the Hudson Bay and its amazing polar bear viewing opportunities in early winter and beluga whale watching in summer. See how money is made at the Royal Canadian Mint and visit the grand Manitoba Legislative Building, both in Winnipeg.   

 

 

Ontario  

 

Ontario is home to Ottawa, Canada’s capital, and Toronto, a metropolis to rival to New York. Visit Niagara Falls, one of the world’s natural wonders, and enjoy the overwhelming spectacle from the ‘Voyage to the Falls’ cruise. The area around Niagara Falls is an award-winning wine region, and at Kingston you can cruise the 1000 Islands of Lake Ontario. Perhaps not well-known is that the provinces of Ontario and Quebec both offer stunning autumn colours to rival New England.  

 

 

Quebec

 

Quebec is Canada’s oldest and largest province with a unique Gallic charm. Saguenay Fjord, one of the world’s longest inlets, and the magnificent Laurentian mountain region with its pristine boreal forest and thousands of lakes is one for the bucket list.  

 

Quebec City is perched atop the aptly named Cap Diamant and is like no other place in North America. This walled city, the only one in North America, is full of history – wander the cobblestone streets of Old Quebec and stroll the Dufferin Terrace boardwalk overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Montreal mixes old and new where cobblestone streets and horse-drawn caleches blend with a modern metropolis of glass and steel.   

 

 

Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador

 

Atlantic Canada, which comprises Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador each provide their own charms, attractions and coastal attractions including some of the world’s best whale watching excursions. With a short flight time of 5 hours, that lobster dinner is closer than you think.  
 
Limitless adventures and activities await you that can be as relaxed or as challenging as you want. On land there’s zip-lining, rock climbing, mountain biking, heli-hiking, horse riding, ranch stays, golf, spa visits and wine tours. On water how about float plane trips, sea-kayaking, sailing, canoeing, jet-boating, river float or rafting trips, whale watching and some of the very best salmon fishing in the world. 

Canada is waiting to be explored and we have options to suit every traveller, from escorted tours to fully independent journeys, rail adventures, cruises and self-drive holidays.
