Overview

Enjoy the ultimate Canadian adventure, as you travel from east to west across this spectacular country. You’ll journey from the cobbled streets of Quebec City in the east, to the unspoiled shores of British Columbia’ Pacific Coast. Throughout your trip, you’ll be able to take in Canada’s diverse scenery, ranging from snow-topped mountains to rolling ranchland to dramatic fjords. You can immerse yourself in vibrant cities, and enjoy exciting daytrips to Niagara Falls and the glacial ice fields, to name a few. This two-week trip really does have it all.
