Canada Tours by Region

Our northern neighbor is renowned for pristine natural beauty, cosmopolitan cities, and friendly locals. The spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountains explode with stunning natural beauty. At the famous Banff National Park, travelers can explore highlights including 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 UNESCO-designated must-see, with highlights such as its pristine Maligne Lake, the largest glacially-fed lake in the Canadian Rockies.

City lovers will delight in Quebec and Montreal, whose urban charms contrast with the remote beauty of the Maritimes. Travelers in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island enjoy unforgettable landscapes, abundant wildlife, and delicious regional cuisine showcasing fresher-than-fresh local seafood and fine wines.

Our expertly planned Canadian tours feature something for every travel style and interest. Skip intercontinental travel hassles: this friendly, easy-going country offers endless opportunities for exploration and quick access for U.S. residents. Whichever trip to Canada you choose, you’ll enjoy professional tour directors, expert local guides, and a memorable experience from start to finish.

Western Canada

Visit Western Canada and let our Canada travel packages immerse you in a postcard-perfect alpine wonderland of craggy glacier-wrapped peaks and emerald meadows. Our Western Canada tours follow the rugged Canadian Rockies stretching northward from the US border to Montana’s Glacier National Park and Canadian Waterton Lakes National Park - united as the world's first International Peace Park. Explore spectacular Banff National Park, Canada’s first national park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Fairmont Banff Springs, the 'Castle in the Rockies,' a grand 11-story 1800s hotel, overlooks epic scenery. Farther north, marvel at majestic Lake Louise, famous for its turquoise glacier-fed waters fringed by high peaks and dense green forests. Head north via the Icefields Parkway, one of the world’s most dramatic mountain highroads, to Jasper National Park, also UNESCO designated and the largest park in the Canadian Rockies, where miles of pristine wilderness host bears, moose, caribou, bighorn sheep, and more. Flanking the Canadian Rockies on the west is Sun Peaks, one of British Columbia’s best-loved ski resorts. On the east side, find Calgary, famous for cowboy honky tonks, trendy restaurants, and lively nightlife.

Eastern Canada

While Western Canada immerses you in the wilderness, visit Eastern Canada for culture, history, architecture, museums, and cuisine. Vibrant Toronto, the capital of Ontario, dazzles visitors with an eclectic mix of cultures and a fantastic food scene. Visit iconic Niagara Falls, take an exhilarating boat ride to Horseshoes, and learn about hydropower at the fascinating Niagara Parks Power Station. Continue to Kingston, dotted with stately 19th-century buildings built from local limestone and gateway to the Thousand Islands. As Canada’s capital, Ottowa overflows with museums, historic buildings, and great restaurants. Our Eastern Canada tours offer a taste of Europe in the province of Quebec, where the French language and culture prevail. Montreal enchants with a character both leafy and urban, modern and antique. Wander narrow cobblestone streets that invite you to the lively plazas, shops, and cafes of the Old Port area and the waterfront where industry and architecture meet. Admire panoramic views from the city’s namesake, Mount Royal, and the Notre Dame Basilica, Canada's first gothic revival church. Quebec City oozes charm as one of the oldest European settlements in North America. Must-sees include the 17th-century walls protecting the city, Latin Quarter, Plains of Abraham, City Hall, and Palace Royale.

Canadian Maritimes

Visit the Canadian Maritimes – Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island – where remote landscapes meet crashing waves, and the sea is never far. Lovers of lobsters and shellfish, rejoice! You’ll get your fill. From the skyscrapers of Halifax to windswept lighthouses, our Canadian Maritime tours capture your imagination. Nova Scotia is practically an island with over 4,000 miles of intricate coastline and a minuscule 15-mile land border with New Brunswick. Capital city Halifax hosts the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. You’ll learn about boatbuilding, the tragedies of the Halifax Explosion and the Titanic, and the history of seafaring from sail to steam. The Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic is nearby Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best-surviving examples of a planned British colonial settlement in North America. You’ll cross the Northumberland Strait by bridge to Prince Edward Island, immortalized in the classic children's book "Anne of Green Gables." Prince Edward Island's capital, Charlottetown, is a nautical dream, with colorful fisherman’s cottages, a charming brick downtown, and a picturesque harbor. Forested New Brunswick borders Maine and flanks the Bay of Fundy, offering plenty of hiking and scenic beaches. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Canada Tours

  • How many days should you spend in Canada?
    Our Canada travel packages are set up to give you the maximum bang for your buck. We suggest 7-10 days to tour Canada’s three main regions. Cities like Montreal, Quebec, Toronto, and Calgary deserve at least a few days each.
  • What can you see in Canada for a week?
    Canada has a lot of ground to cover, so choose your Canadian tour based on where your passion lies: mountains, cities, or coast. One week is enough to explore the region of your choice.
  • Where is the best place to go in Canada on tour?
    If you crave a cosmopolitan city experience, you’ll absolutely love Montreal and Quebec, so sign up for an Eastern Canada travel package. For epic, jaw-dropping mountain vistas, Western Canada will deliver. If misty coastlines, rural terrain, and island life captivate you, book your trip to Canada to explore the Maritimes.
  • Where can you see the Northern Lights in Canada?
    The farther north you go, the better your odds of spotting this bucket-list phenomenon, so our Western Canada travel packages, visiting Banff National Park and Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rockies, will deliver the best chance to witness the Aurora Borealis.
  • How big is Canada compared to the United States?
    Canada is the second-largest country in the world by area, but it’s number 39 in population. The United States is the third or fourth largest country by area, depending on one’s criteria. About 40% of Canada has a sparse population in the Arctic Circle. Canada also has the world’s longest coastline, partly thanks to over 50,000 islands.
