Where stories begin
Evergreen spruce, poplar and pine carpet the slopes of Canada's mountains, and skirt the edges of brilliant blue waters like Lake Louise, while the Eastern Provinces share New England's changing colours in the autumn as the trees light up in brilliant reds, oranges and yellows.
Discover the breath-taking Rocky Mountains, with their pristine lakes and spectacular Canadian wildlife, while at sea, pods of humpback, orca, minke, beluga and the bizarre but beautiful narwhal make Canada’s coastal waters some of the best in the world for whale watching.
As well as vast open spaces, and endless, forested wildernesses, Canada is home to glittering modern cities, including some of the world’s most desirable urban locations. Think glittering skylines, acres of parkland, vibrant music and dining scenes, and historic enclaves.
Marvel at Toronto’s sky-piercing icon, the CN Tower, and enjoy the view from over 440 metres high, choose to walk on the famous glass floor, or even venture outside to take what is officially ‘the world’s highest external walk on a building’.
The streets of Quebec City streets heave with locals and visitors enjoying European-style cafe culture, while Vancouver’s pristine parks are as flames to a moth for weekending city dwellers during the spring and summer. During the chilly winter months, Banff, the ‘capital of the Rockies’, comes to life, with world-class skiing and snowboarding slopes and stunning vistas to match, and ice hockey becomes the national sporting obsession
Whatever season you visit Canada, you’ll always enjoy the outdoors to the full.
