Escorted Canada holidays
An escorted tour to Canada offers visitors a journey into an incredible country packed full of iconic sites and breathtaking scenery. From its exciting cities to its spectacular countryside, the highlights just keep on coming.
Canada’s capital, Ottawa, sits proudly on the Rideau Canal, which in the winter becomes the world’s biggest skating rink. Steeped in history, highlights include the impressive Gothic-style Parliament Building and the renowned Fairmont Château Laurier hotel, built in 1912. But it’s not just the capital that lures visitors – Canada boasts many amazing cities. Montreal boasts elegant 17th century architecture and an undeniable French flair, while French-speaking Quebec City’s Old Town is crowned by the iconic Château Frontenac hotel. Head to the bustling metropolis of Toronto whose skyline is dominated by the CN Tower, and Vancouver, where the ocean meets the mountains, is simply stunning and named ‘the best place to live in the world’ in many polls.
Canada’s natural wonders too will stop you in your tracks. Freshwater lakes account for nearly 9% of the country’s gigantic size, with four of the five Great Lakes resident here, and of course the thundering Niagara Falls and sparkling Lake Louise are a huge draw for tourists. Whatever scenic splendour is on your wish list, Canada’s national parks feature them all, from sandy beaches and dramatic mountains to lush forests and glacial lakes. Head to Banff National Park, an incredible snow-capped wilderness or Jasper National Park, which has been described as a Christmas card come to life!
Stunning fall foliage
Keep a lookout for Canada’s national emblem the maple leaf on your travels through Canada’s heavily forested countryside. The lush greens of spring and summer turn even more stunning in the fall when the leaves turn intense shades of gold, orange, yellow, purple and red. Another way to explore is aboard the famous Rocky Mountaineer on a thrilling train journey through magnificent scenery. Enjoy refreshments and a fascinating commentary as you take in the sights in comfort.
From your seat you might spot grizzly bears, moose, elk and even eagles, but Canada’s wildlife is not restricted to dry land. In the Canadian Arctic try spotting Arctic foxes and hares, as well as wolves and bison. But the stars of the show are beluga whales, which come to the coastal waters around Churchill to feed and mate, and polar bears, which you can view as they come ashore here each year as the Hudson Bay ice begins to melt.
