This is big country in every sense; big on distance, big on adventure, big on experience. As the world’s second largest country it shouldn’t be surprising that from coast to coast this country can offer a range of experiences whatever the type of traveller you are. In the west the highlights must be the natural landscapes of the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Coast, and the diverse wildlife found here, while in the east you will find a host of welcoming, multi-cultural cities and of course the wild Atlantic Coast.

  • The world-renowned Rocky Mountaineer which offers arguably the most scenic rail routes in the world
  • The impressive Niagara Falls – one of the world’s most famous natural wonders, best seen on a Hornblower cruise
  • Culturally diverse cities such as Toronto, Montreal and the capital Ottawa
  • Wildlife watching opportunities from Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Whistler, Quebec and Manitoba
  • As well as being naturally impressive, the Okanagan Valley is one of Canada’s largest wine producing regions
