For a traveller, the things to do on a tailor-made itinerary in Canada are endless. The size and location of the country means that each region has its own attractions – from stunning mountain panoramas to thundering waterfalls, cosmopolitan cities to indigenous cultures, untamed wilderness to the northern lights, and winter landscapes to world-class cuisine.
You can choose to concentrate on one area for an immersive experience, combine a few regions together, or traverse the entire country by rail, watching the landscapes change mile by mile. No matter the decision, Canada offers some truly unique experiences.
Visit cosmopolitan Vancouver and begin a journey on the Rocky Mountaineer; whale watch from Vancouver Island; seek out grizzly bears in the Great Bear Rainforest; relax in the year-round mountain retreat of Whistler; gain spectacular mountain views from Banff; see picturesque Lake Louise and self-drive along the Icefields Parkway.
For a more extreme experience of Canada, explore boreal forest and over 100,000 lakes; visit Churchill, the ‘polar bear capital of the world’; spot beluga whales in Hudson Bay; stay in the Tundra Buggy Lodge to search out the northern lights; and see the enriching museums and galleries in cultural Winnipeg.
In addition, take a boat ride among the mists of Niagara Falls and discover Canada’s most iconic attraction; sample fine French cuisine in Montreal and Quebec City; drive around the Gaspé Peninsula; ascend the CN tower in Toronto; and visit the capital city, Ottawa.
