CANADA TOURS? TICK.

Our Canada tours are a great way to see this sprawling country, as you can cover plenty of ground without any fuss. Whether you want to focus your attention on one province or you’re keen to discover lots of major attractions, we’ve got you covered. And if you have specific interests – like culture or wildlife, for instance – then we can advise which Canada itinerary is best for you.

There are different types of Canada tours available. You could opt for an escorted tour, which means you’ll travel around in a small group, accompanied by a knowledgeable guide. If you’re looking for an easy, relaxing and informative trip with the opportunity to meet like-minded people, then this could be the best option for you. We have a number of itineraries available, including our fantastic coast-to-coast Canadian Contrasts, which includes stops in Toronto, Montreal, Banff National Park and Whistler. You’ll be able to take in some of Canada’s staggering scenery, as well as vibrant cities and native wildlife.

Alternatively, if you prefer travelling independently, you’ll really enjoy a self-drive tour. You can drive your chosen route at your own pace, staying at your pre-booked accommodation along the way. One big benefit of a self-drive Canada tour is being able to stop off whenever and wherever you like – so if you see an incredible viewpoint and fancy a picnic, you can simply pull over. Whether you want to drive through Nova Scotia or the Rocky Mountains, our experts will help you plan your ideal Canada road trip. And, since our Canada tours are really flexible, you can easily add an unforgettable train journey aboard the Rocky Mountaineer.

Canada self-drive tours

Self-drive holidays are our most popular Canada tours, as you’ll be able to tick off multiple places at your own pace. You’ll pick up your hire car – or campervan, if you prefer – and set off on a road trip, with all your accommodation pre-booked along your route. So you can enjoy a hassle-free adventure.

One of our favourite self-drive Canada tours is the Eastbound Journey Through the Clouds. Starting with a few days in Vancouver, this nine-day itinerary includes a journey aboard the world-famous Rocky Mountaineer, allowing you to admire the views in style. You’ll disembark the train at Jasper, where you’ll collect your vehicle and drive east towards Calgary, exploring Lake Louise and Banff National Park as you go.

Alternatively, wildlife-lovers might prefer to do a self-drive tour around Vancouver Island. Covering 12,000 square miles, this beautiful isle is renowned for its bears and whales. You’ll collect your car in Vancouver, then catch the ferry to Vancouver Island. Enjoy a couple of days in historical Victoria, before driving through the island’s stunning mountains towards Tofino, where you’ll be able to see some of Canada’s incredible wildlife. You’ll also stop off at Campbell River and Knight Inlet, before returning to Vancouver.

Escorted Canada tours

An escorted tour is perfect for travellers who want to sit back, relax, and let someone else do the driving. You’ll journey across breathtaking landscapes in an air-conditioned coach, while your Tour Director tells your group all about Canada’s culture, history and natural wonders.

We offer lots of exciting escorted Canada tours, but the 15-day Canadian Contrasts itinerary is the cream of the crop. This jam-packed trip takes you from east to west, stopping off at six cities along the way. You’ll start with a couple of days in multicultural Toronto – including a daytrip to Niagara Falls – before travelling to eastern hotspots like Ottawa, Quebec City and Montreal.

Meanwhile, the second week of this tour is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts. You’ll fly west to Calgary and drive through the stunning Rocky Mountains, with plenty of time to explore Banff National Park, Lake Louise and the Columbia Icefields. Your tour continues on to scenic Whistler, before wrapping up in bustling Vancouver.

Canada multi-centre holidays

If you’re keen to travel independently, consider booking a multi-centre holiday to Canada. This kind of trip allows you to combine two or more destinations into one easy getaway and, best of all, you can choose how much time to spend in each.

For example, you could book a tailor-made trip to Toronto, Niagara Falls and New York. This impressive trio serve up all sorts of adventures. In Toronto, you can stroll down artsy laneways, kayak around the Toronto Islands, watch the Blue Jays play baseball, and go up the CN Tower. Then, at Niagara Falls, witness the power of Mother Nature as 3,160 tons of water pour down every second. Your holiday concludes with a few days in the Big Apple, where you can shop ‘til you drop, watch theatrical shows, and visit iconic landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building.

Alternatively, if you want to explore Canada’s historical eastern cities, why not combine Toronto, Quebec and Montreal into a multi-centre holiday? Connected by both road and rail, these three boast fascinating museums, ornate architecture and top-notch dining.

Best time to go to Canada

Canada is often associated with snowy mountains and frozen lakes, so you might be pleasantly surprised by the country’s temperate climate. Canada tours are best between May and September, when you can usually expect sunshine and blue skies. In May, June and September, temperatures tend to hover in the high teens, while July and August are hotter. During peak summer, the Rockies average 22°C and Toronto tends to be very humid. So, if you want to avoid this heat and the crowds, spring or autumn is your best bet.

By contrast, Canadian winters tend to be very cold, wet and snowy. Snowsports enthusiasts will obviously be delighted, as places like Banff and Whistler serve up amazing conditions for skiing and snowboarding. If that’s not your thing, though, Canada tours in winter are best avoided. The roads can be difficult to navigate due to ice and snow – especially in the Rockies – while Vancouver sees heavy rain between November and January.
