Canada Holidays


A holiday to Canada is a delight for the senses combining some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes and appealing cities with incredible wildlife encounters.

Stunning landscapes abound from the rib-trembling thunder of Niagara Falls to the awe-inspiring snow-capped mountains and emerald lakes of the Canadian Rockies. Catch icebergs sailing along the shores of Newfoundland, kaleidoscopic autumnal colours in the forests of Ontario and the dazzling Northern Lights in Yukon.

Holidays in Canada also offer unmatched opportunities for wildlife spotting. Keep your eyes peeled for grizzly bears in the forests of British Columbia, polar bears in Manitoba, orcas off the coast of Vancouver island and moose in Quebec. We could go on and on.

Nestled amongst all this natural beauty cosmopolitan cities boast great museums, theatres, galleries and excellent shopping from the cobbled streets of Montreal and Quebec to the waterfront skyscrapers of Toronto and Vancouver.

  • When is the best time to visit Canada?

    Canada is a great year round destination. While temperatures can get very cold, winter is a magical time to visit and a good time to experience cold weather activities such as skiing. Spring has fewer crowds, sunshine and snow, while summers are warm and sunny, and the perfect time to enjoy the abundance of outdoor activities on offer. Temperatures start to drop in the autumn, when moose and bear are easiest to see.

    Top Tips From Our Experts

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Erica Moore

    Break any drive on Vancouver Island between Ucluelet/Tofino/Campbell River and Nanaimo at the Coombs Country Candy store- the chocolate is unreal.

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Carolyn Stead

    Canada is home to 3 species of beautiful bears. Go in search of polar bears in the Hudson Bay in Manitoba or book a stay at a lodge in British Columbia that includes dedicated trips to view grizzly and black bears in the wild. Be sure to book early, lodges can sell out up to a year in advance!
