Canada Travel & Holiday Packages

Welcome to Canada! A life without a visit to Canada & Alaska  is a life that remains unfulfilled.

When to visit

Canada is a vast country, and the weather can be quite different in the East and in the West.

When to visit in summer. Mid-May to late June is a great time to visit Canada! The summer tourist season has officially begun. There are new leaves in the trees; nature is in full bloom.  July-August is peak tourist season right across Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver. Cities and national parks are full of tourists from around the world. September-October is what is called the Indian summer, when the forests don their brilliant hues of red and gold and nature is in full splendour. The weather is still very pleasant, especially in September, although evenings can be quite chilly. This is generally the lower season.

When to visit in winter.  The Canadian winter lasts from mid-December to mid-March. It is a great time to enjoy exciting winter activities like snowmobiling and dog sledding and skiing. Mid-December to early January is a very busy time of year because of all the Christmas and New Year's festivities along with the ski resorts enjoying their peak time. The weather is pleasant and snow conditions are at their best. January and February are the coldest months of the year. In March the weather starts to warm and can be almost spring-like. Winter sports can still be enjoyed in early March.

Getting Around

Canadians definitely love the open road. Travelling by motorbike, car, truck or RV is an amazing way to see the country. With vast open roads and incredible scenery a self-drive experience provides freedom and flexibility to appreciate the small things on the way. You’ll be able to explore areas that often large coaches can’t access as well as enjoy as much time as you wish at each destination. Our diverse self-drive itineraries have been thoughtfully designed to offer you the road trip of a lifetime. Explore one of the world’s most scenic drives along the Icefields Parkway winding its way through the majestic Canadian Rockies.

Our packages can be combined with rail on either Rocky Mountaineer or VIA Rail to offer you the best experience of both worlds.

The Canadian Pacific Railway has over 22,500 km of track across Canada. From East Coast to West Coast, Canada is bursting with a wide variety of rail tours. The Alaskan Railroads carries both freight and passengers throughout its system, including Denali National Park. The railroad has a mainline over 760 km long. Enjoy incredible scenery as you travel across Canada’s vast countryside from the temperate Pacific Coast, to the majestic Canadian Rockies, the prairies of the mid-west to the metropolises of Ontario and Québec all the way to the Atlantic Coast – rail travel enables you to relax and enjoy the scenery rolling by in your comfortable seating options.

The two major operators in Canada are Rocky Mountaineer and VIA Rail. Rocky Mountaineer offers daylight travel options on 2 or 3 day itineraries operating from mid April to early October between the Pacific Coast and the Canadian Rockies, whereas VIA Rail operates year round with a variety of routes, seating and cabins from coast to coast.
