A holiday to Canada offers something for everyone; diverse cities, nature and wildlife, rich culture and unparalleled scenery. Here our travel expert Nikki gives us 10 reasons why Canada should be your next holiday destination!
Explore Canada’s National Parks
If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, Canada’s probably already on your bucket list. But even if you’re not a seasoned hiker, parks like Glacier National Park in British Columbia and Rouge National Park in Toronto provide plenty of opportunity to explore this picture perfect backdrop.
Experience Canada’s Rich Culture
From coast to coast you’ll find people and communities that encapsulate the history of Canada. Appreciate the rich Aboriginal culture, discover First Nations art and relive history in almost every province and territory – there are plenty of ways to take in Canada’s rich culture.
During any trip to Canada you’ll likely be lucky enough to spot some wildlife! Known for its vast areas of untouched wilderness, Canada is home to some amazing wildlife. With exciting whale watching opportunities that you will not want to miss and bear sightings during the summer months you’ll be spoiled for choice. If you want to do a bear-watching shore excursion in Canada the prime time is late June or early July.
Sample The Local Cuisine
Although it’s hard to pinpoint a particular regional cuisine for Canada, that doesn’t mean they don’t have some of the best food in the world! Try some Poutine in Quebec, Lobster Rolls in Nova Scotia and sushi in Vancouver to name a few delicacies! If wine tasting is your preference, make sure to add wine country in British Columbia to your list.
Live It Up At A Canadian Festival
Canada has a diverse arts scene, and there’s something for everyone when it comes to festivals and events. Music lovers – check out Oshega in Montreal or the TD Jazz Fest. There are also film festivals (like Toronto’s International Film Festival) and food festivals all across the country – like Pemberton’s Slow food Cycle.
Explore The Longest Coastline In The World
Head out on the open ocean in New Brunswick to spot whales in their natural environment, or get to know the West Coast by kayak or float plane. No matter where you go in Canada, you’ll never be far from a pristine glacial lake, or rugged coastline.
Experience The Four Seasons
Canada is host to four distinct seasons, making it a great year-round destination. Hike into the forest to discover the fall colours, celebrate winter in Quebec City or skiing in Whistler, British Columbia, sunbathe on a beach in Prince Edward Island in the summer or discover spring cherry blossoms coming to life Vancouver.
