Holidays to Canada
But there’s more to Canada than its dashing good looks. Progressive art, music and design, a burgeoning foodie scene and a rich culture and history – from Francophile architecture to First Nations heritage – are at this incredible country’s core.
Toronto, with its lofty CN Tower and close proximity to thundering Niagara Falls, is a must – while history buffs should head for French-speaking Quebec City, distinctly European in feel
Where to go
City lovers will fall for Vancouver – seek out delectable bites at Granville Market, go whale-watching from Vancouver Island, and climb to the top of the forest-clad Grouse Mountain for views across this coastal metropolis.

Nature is what links all of Canada’s main hubs: explore the national parks of Banff and Jasper, beloved for their wildlife, waterfalls, glaciers and lakes; head north to the Yukon for the Northern Lights and Midnight Sun; or hang around in Ontario for watery adventures on some of its 250,000 lakes.
When to go
Head for the cities in the spring (for blooming flowers) and autumn (for fall leaves) – and in the summer, get behind the wheel: it’s the perfect time for a nature-filled road trip.
Winter is the perfect opportunity to hunt the Northern Lights in Arctic Canada, or grab your skis in British Columbia.
