Canada Travel Tips

Our neighbor to the north, Canada is best known for its pristine natural beauty, cosmopolitan cities and friendly locals.  An increasingly popular destination in recent years, it offers endless opportunities for exploration without the hassle of intercontinental travel.  From renowned national parks to charming Maritime Provinces, Canada is a land of unexpected surprises.

Eastern Canada is home to stunning natural beauty and famous Banff National Park, Canada’s first national park and the world’s third.  Here, deep in the heart of Canada’s Rockies, travelers can explore highlights including the Lake Louise, Moraine Lake – part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most photographed sites in the country – and the Columbia Icefield, where visitors can enjoy a ride on the Athabasca Glacier on a specially designed Ice Explorer.  Jasper National Park is another must-see, with highlights such as its pristine Maligne Lake, the largest glacially-fed lake in the Canadian Rockies. 

City-dwellers will enjoy exploring the delightful cities of Quebec and Montreal, contrasted by the unparalleled beauty of the Maritimes.  Travelers in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island are treated to magnificent landscapes, and abundance of wildlife, and delicious regional cuisine showcasing fresh local lobster and fine wines.

Our expertly planned tours of Canada feature something in every travel style and for every interest.  Whether you’re interested in exploring coast to coast by rail or immersing yourself in nature—you’ll find the perfect vacation.  Whichever tour of Canada you choose, you’ll enjoy professional tour directors, expert local guides and a hassle-free experience from start to finish.
