Canada is one of those countries that offer the discerning holidaymaker just about everything they could ever hope for, from breathtaking natural scenery and rich heritage, to sophisticated dining and stylish shopping boutiques. An escorted tour can be a fantastic way to take in the sights and sounds of this wonderful country in as little as eight days – as long as you choose a holiday company that is knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to organising air holidays to this destination.
Take in the contrasting cities of Montreal and Quebec in French Canada for a real taste of the diversity that this country has to offer. Montreal, the second largest city in Canada after Toronto, sizzles with style and sophistication. Highlights of this cosmopolitan city include the rich array of public artwork, the impressive architecture of Old Montreal and Saint Joseph’s Oratory – the largest church in Canada.
One of Canada’s oldest settlements, Quebec City’s UNESCO-listed centre is one of the best examples of a fortified colonial city and a definite must-see sight. The ramparts surrounding the city are recognised as Fethiye Escort the only fortified walls that remain intact in the Americas, north of Mexico, and are in themselves a worthy reason to visit this charming French-Canadian city.
When you’ve experienced the best that Canada’s cities have to offer, it’s time to discover her majestic landscape. Venture out to the Gatineau Hills in Ottawa, to the frozen turquoise waters of Lake Louise in the Rocky Mountains, to the Jasper National Park, or to one of the most incredible natural wonders of the world – Niagara Falls. With such an amazing choice of places to see, it’s no wonder that Canada is such a popular place to visit.
As well as marvelling at the stunning scenery and sights, the adventurous will have ample opportunity to experience the many outdoor activities on offer. Hike or learn to ski in the stunning Rocky Mountains for an experience that you will never forget, or treat yourself to a helicopter ride for the chance to get close to Niagara Falls and see just how awe-inspiring it is from the air. Once you’ve had your fill of Canada’s beautiful landscape, why not take a trip to the cowboy town of Calgary for a taste of authentic West Canada? Here, you can explore the town that was home to the ‘Stampede’, an annual rodeo which attracts over one million visitors every year.
Whichever part of Canada you choose to explore, whether it’s Vancouver and the West or French Canada to the East, and whatever your age, there’s no doubt that you will return with memories of the holiday of a lifetime!
