Canada Holidays

With a population density roughly 100 times lower than that of the United Kingdom, it is fair to say that Canada is not short of open spaces. The country’s wildernesses stretch from the straight edge of the US border to the distant cold of the Arctic Circle and include the vast Prairies as well as the pristine beauty of the Rockies.

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.

THINGS TO DO

Canada offers some of the world’s most incredible sites and, of course, the very warmest of welcomes. Whether you choose to explore the delights of cosmopolitan Toronto and vibrant Vancouver, or spot bears in Canada’s mountains, the country will have something for you.

Choosing what to see on a single visit can be a tough choice. We’ve complied a list of think we think are not to be missed on your visit to Canada.

FOOD & DRINK

Canada’s national dish is poutine (cheesy chips and gravy to British visitors). But this simple, hearty and moreish snack is just one side of Canadian food.

From the bright orange-red of Pacific sockeye salmon to delicate Nova Scotia lobster and lean caribou meat, meat and fish lovers will find plenty to celebrate, while those with a sweet tooth should keep an eye out for Nanaimo bars as well as the ubiquitous maple syrup. Among national drinks, Canada has taken advantage of its chilly winter to become the world’s leading producer of ice wine (which is only made from grapes that have frozen while still on the vine) and has one standout peculiarity, the Cesar cocktail, a Bloody Mary made with a mix of tomato and clam juice.
