Bordered by three oceans, Canada’s ever-changing landscape ranges from the dizzying heights of the Rocky Mountains to vast forests, endless prairies and desert. Added to this natural beauty are the country’s vibrant, cosmopolitan cities – from dynamic Toronto and ‘European’ Montreal to Calgary the ‘gateway to the Rockies’ and lovable, liveable Vancouver.
Come for the boat trip beneath Niagara Falls, for the impossible turquoise blue colour of Lake Louise, to hike Banff’s mountain peaks or to discover the Icefield Parkway at the wheel of your motorhome. Unless you’re skiing or skating you’ll need to travel in the short season from May to early October which makes it essential to book as early as possible.
