For the adventurous at heart, many trips include a heli-hiking option. Canada is also great for wildlife viewing. Keep in mind when planning your Canada tour that peak season is May to October as the weather is most enjoyable and throughout the fall months you can experience an abundance of colors everywhere you go.
Canada Tours: Getting There
From several major U.S. cities, you can find direct flights into the larger Canadian airports including Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec and Saint John.
Canada Tours: What to Wear
Casual, comfortable clothes are best. The Spring and Fall can still be quite chilly, so pack long sleeved shirts and panks as well as socks and a medium weight jacket. It's always a good idea to pack a light jacket you can take with you in a backpack. Comfortable, water-repellent footwear is highly recommended. If you travel in the winter bundle up with the works including hats, gloves and boots.
Canada Tours: What Will You See
You can start your tour in Quebec City (pictured here,) the provincial capital of Quebec. Here, European history comes alive in this fortified city that lies in the north of Mexico. The beautiful city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers a blend of traditional and modern attractions. Enjoy the tasty native dishes common in the French-influenced menus in the city. If you have been to Paris, Old Quebec will remind you of the streets filled with quaint shops and restaurants.
While in Nova Scotia, you should stop by the Bay of Fundy. The beauty created by the tones of water that fill the Bay is one to behold. Watch the tide reach up to 50 feet (16m) in some parts of the Bay and enjoy the shore’s sandstone that has been washed away to reveal beautiful fossils.
The CN Tower in Toronto will also fascinate you. Standing at 1,825 feet, this is the tallest free standing structure in the world. Go up the tower and enjoy the beautiful bird’s eye view of Toronto. The Tower’s foot glass floored outdoor observation deck will thrill you. Do not miss the top floor restaurant, 360.
Another great place to visit is Alberta. Here, the most popular attraction is Banff National Park. This prized national park is one of the five that are located in the Canadian Rockies. The park is filled with tourists who come for hiking, fishing, camping, biking or simply relaxing. You can spend the night at the resort towns of Lake Louise and Banff, both of which are located inside the park.
Still in Alberta, the Jasper National Park should be in your list of places to visit. This vast national park in the Canadian Rockies was established in 1907 and is home to some of the rarest animals in North America. Some of the animals you will come across include bears, wolves, caribous, and moose.
The Niagara Falls in Ontario will take your breath away. This is the most powerful waterfall in North America and has over 6 million cubic feet of water falling per minute. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, you should not miss exploring the Niagara region. For those who need modern entertainment, the town has fine clubs, hotels and restaurants.
