A richly varied country featuring everything from polar bears and cosmopolitan cities to snow-capped mountains and the most famous waterfall in the world – Canada genuinely has it all.
The Rocky Mountains
Stretching from New Mexico in the south-western United States to the northernmost part of British Columbia in western Canada, the Rocky Mountains provide some of North America's most awe-inspiring sights. There are many ways to visit the Rockies on Travelsphere’s tours of Canada, with one holiday combining a rail journey with a cruise. You can embark on a tour of the mountain town of Banff and see other destinations such as Lake Louise and Kamloops before heading to Vancouver. There’s time to explore this beautiful city before setting off on an Alaskan cruise.
Some of the region's unique sights are also showcased on a Canadian Rocky Mountaineer rail holiday starting off in the former railroad town of Jasper, with visits to Banff and Vancouver included. If you’re feeling adventurous, optional excursions include rafting trips and nature walks.
The Maple Leaf Trail
Canada is home to some unforgettable natural attractions, but its man-made sights are equally impressive. A holiday along the Maple Leaf Trail gives you the chance to explore some of the nation's biggest and most exciting cities, starting off in Montreal.
The city, which is the largest in the province of Quebec and the second-biggest in the country, is known for its parks, cobbled streets and history. You can set off on a tour to see some of the best that Montreal has to offer, such as Mount Royal and Notre Dame Cathedral.
Quebec is notable for the lasting influence of French culture that distinguishes the destination from many other Canadian cities. It also offers enticing streets, cathedrals and other landmarks, such as Chateau Frontenac.
Views from the CN Tower
You can then head on to Ottawa to see the impressive Parliament Buildings in Canada's capital, before continuing your journey along the shores of Lake Ontario to Toronto. With time to spend in the final location on your tour, you might want to take in panoramic views from the CN Tower or expand your cultural horizons at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
The Splendour of Niagara Falls
There are few natural spectacles more awesome than Niagara Falls, the most powerful waterfall system in North America. After arriving in Toronto, you can travel south through scenic vineyards towards the falls. Every second, hundreds of thousands of gallons of water plunge from the Niagara River down to the comparatively calm lake below. Taking in the sight from the Canadian side of the border, you can appreciate the full force of the falls and even feel the spray on your face.
