Canada is getting ready to open
A Canada holiday is all about the scenery and the experiences. With more lakes than anywhere else in the world (said to be over 3 million!!), the spectacular snow-capped Rocky Mountains, cosmopolitan cities and more iconic wildlife than you can wave a maple leaf at, we warn you – one visit may not be enough!
Canada have said they are planning to let fully vaccinated travellers into the country from 7th September, so all of its beauty should be open for exploring very soon! Plus, if you book before 30th September, your Canada holiday will be covered by our Flexibility Promise. So dive in below to…
4 of our favourite Canada holiday itineraries designed to wake your wanderlust
1. Eastern Canada Autumn Odyssey
Autumn is the most beautiful time to explore Canada, so this two-week itinerary could be the perfect choice if you’re hoping to get away as soon as possible this year. Towards the end of September and into October, the far-eastern provinces burst to life with a rainbow of magnificent colours. From the forests and heather which cover the rolling hills to the city parks, fiery yellow, orange and red slowly blazes across the landscape, the views will have you pulling over the car to take photos at every turn. Plus, autumn is the end of the main tourist season, so you’re guaranteed a relaxing self-drive itinerary without the hoards of leaf-peepers that New England experiences at this time of year. Highlights include Halifax, Cape Breton and Fredricton… All the beauty, without the crowds!
2. Canada Family Road Trip
We’re going to hedge our bets that every member of your family is in need of a holiday right now (and fully deserving of one too!). This roadtrip would make the perfect summer Canada holiday with all the family. Get away, reward the kids for their resilience this last year and make new memories together. Your route takes in the diverse scenery of British Columbia and the Rocky Mountains with a bit of adventure thrown in along the way for good measure. Explore the vibrant city of Vancouver, before diving headfirst into the activity centres of Whistler and Banff. Finish your trip in the more laid-back parts of British Columbia such as Sun Peaks and the Okanagan, which also benefit from beautiful summer temperatures. This is a family holiday you won’t forget in a hurry!
3. Canadian Icons
Canada is home to a seriously impressive number of iconic sights and breathtaking scenery, we’re fairly certain you’ll want to return again and again. But, we have good news! It is possible to experience many of its best bits in one trip. This highlights itinerary starts with a few days in the bustling city of Toronto, including a full-day trip to perhaps the most famous Canadian icon of them all – Niagara Falls. You’ll then take to the skies to fly west to Vancouver and start your breathtaking roadtrip through Whistler and interior British Columbia across to the impressive Rocky Mountains. This is a nicely paced itinerary with some beautiful drives and by the end, you’ll have a real feel for this wonderful country and will have enjoyed some of the best bits it has to offer.
4. Eastern Canada 10 day City Break
The cities of eastern Canada all offer a wonderfully distinct character and flavour. The sprawling city of Toronto is a cosmopolitan metropolis nestled on the shores of Lake Ontario; Ottawa is the political capital, full to bursting with world-class museums; Canada’s most flamboyant city, Montreal, effortlessly blends traditional French flair with cosmopolitan creativity; and the French, walled city of Quebec is the perfect place to explore the jumble of narrow streets lined with boutique shops, street performers and artisan eateries. As if all that wasn’t enough, swing by the staggering Niagara Falls for a bucket-list worthy experience to remember. Exploring the Eastern cities can feel a bit like visiting four different countries in one holiday, which we love! Whether you choose to relax and travel by train between the cities or get behind the wheel yourself for a road trip adventure, this Canada holiday come city break won’t disappoint.
