Canada tours offer spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife,
handsome cities and a world of adventure.

Discover glaciers, forests and emerald lakes, go whale-watching by boat, kayak or canoe, see bears from a secluded lodge in the magnificent Great Bear Rainforest. Vancouver is the gateway to this vast country’s west coast and from here you can embark on a scenic rail journey on the Rocky Mountaineer or on VIA Rail’s flagship train The Canadian through the Rocky Mountains.

In Canada’s east, you can visit the Niagara Falls, the historic cities of Ottawa and Quebec, or tour the spectacular scenery and culture of the Atlantic Maritimes. Central Manitoba offers polar bears encounters, either from a unique tundra buggy or while on a walking tour of Hudson Bay. If you’re looking for amazing outdoor activities, head north into the unspoilt natural landscapes of Yukon.

Canada Overview

Why visit Canada? Spanning the top of north America from the Pacific to the Atlantic, this huge country offers majestic scenery, unspoiled wilderness and incredible wildlife and adventure opportunities. At the same time Canada is a modern country with sophisticated cities, world class accommodation and excellent rail, road and air network.

When is the best time to visit Canada? From May to September is the best time for cruising and touring in Canada when the weather is at its finest. Temperatures and daylight hours vary depending on latitude, and the coast is more moderate than inland regions which have long hot summers and very cold winters.

Grizzly bear viewing is generally good from June until October and Polar Bear viewing around Churchill is possible from July to November. November to April is the time for winter wonderland experiences, skiing, dog sledding and the Northern Lights.

What can I combine Canada with? Alaskan holidays like Inside Passage cruising and wildlife viewing. Canada can also be combined with Arctic cruising and ice based adventures.

How do you get to Canada? Fly to Vancouver in British Columbia for west coast touring and cruising, or to Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal or Quebec City for eastern Canada.
