Bordered by the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic Oceans, Canada is a land of contrasts. Its modern cities boast some of the highest standards of living in the world, while its 39 National Parks and numerous Provincial Parks are renowned for their natural beauty. Outdoor activities abound and the majestic landscapes are surpassed only by the spirit of the Canadian people.
The lakes and mountains of Jasper, Banff and Yoho National Parks, provide the perfect backdrop for hiking and biking, while walking along the massive Athabasca Glacier feels like you are on top of the world. Horse riding, white water rafting, canoeing and whale watching are readily available for the adventurous traveller on our holidays to Canada.
Western Canada Few places on Earth can compare to the natural beauty of Western Canada's Rocky Mountain region. Hike the majestic trails in Jasper National Park, jump on a horseback ride through Banff or Wells Gray, or simply sit back and enjoy the view of Lake Louise, or Emerald Lake in Yoho. Hikers and photography enthusiasts will be in their element and there's the opportunity to spot native wildlife including Big horn sheep, moose and bears.
Vancouver, Gateway to the Rockies Routinely topping the list as one of the best places to live on planet earth, Vancouver has it all. Laid-back beachside living is the name of the game here, and the city is surrounded by craggy peaks which enclose the city like a warm hug. This cosmopolitan city is a destination in itself but due to its close proximity to the Rocky Mountains, it's usually the first stop on any tour of this majestic mountain range.
Eastern Canada This vast area is home to some of the most European culture in Canada, thanks to its history of French settlers. The European-esque cities of Québec and Montréal present ample opportunities to wander cobbled streets in search of cheeses and Poutine (fries topped with cheese and gravy). But no trip to Eastern Canada would be complete without a journey south to Toronto and nearby Niagara Falls, on the border of the USA.
The Maritimes Also based in Canada's Eastern region, the Maritimes region is made up of three distinct provinces; New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Old clapboard farmhouses are nestled in quaint rolling hills, framed by the Atlantic Ocean's powerful surf. For those who want to see how the ocean can dramatically alter the surrounding scenery, a visit to Fundy National Park is a must, as the area claims the highest tides in the world.
