Canada is huge! Families would need months to fully do it justice so we have decided to concentrate on two key areas. Over in the west, the Canadian Rockies are justifiably one of the country’s main attractions. Soaring snow-capped mountains, dazzling turquoise lakes, lush forested hillsides, and mammoth glaciers provide a setting for endless outdoor adventure. These can be combined with the coastal delights and marine wildlife of Vancouver Island on our Western Canada for families itinerary. This ticks all the boxes for an active family holiday.
Over in the east, our Lakes, Falls and Cities of Ontario is an easy road trip for all ages. Here rural wilderness mixes with urban buzz and can be enjoyed all year round. Both trips can be worked in either direction and are based on self-drive. This allows you the ultimate flexibility and the freedom of the open road.
We can easily extend either route if you can stretch your holiday beyond two weeks.

There are of course many other areas we can include on your Canada itinerary. Experience the old-world charm of Quebec City and the bustling delights of Montreal. Or perhaps head to the maritime provinces for coastal exploration or get a taste of Atlantic life in Newfoundland. The Yukon and the Northwest Territories will provide you with the frontier feel of true wilderness whilst the country’s newest province, Nunavut, is where the local Inuit people survive in Arctic conditions.
It is also easy to combine Canada with the USA on a North American holiday. You can head south from Vancouver to Seattle and onto the glories of California. Or alternatively, cruise the Inside Passage and head north to Alaska. Another option is to head south from Calgary and cross the border at the incredible Waterton Lakes National Park. From here you can continue on to Yellowstone and the great parks of the western states. The Maple Leaf meets the Stars and Stripes!
