CANADA PERSONALISED TRAVEL
Canada is a North American country stretching from the Arctic Circle in the North to the USA in the South. Boasting 16 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, some of the most spectacular natural wonders on earth and offering incredible adventures, Canada truly has it all, and more: it also produces extraordinary meals, rocks cool culture and has a cosmopolitan population.
Canada has many modern, multicultural and friendly cities, each with its own distinct personality. Vancouver in British Columbia is surrounded by nature and beautiful mountains, makes it a postcard-like marvel. Calgary is a natural gateway to the Rocky Mountains. Toronto is the biggest metropolis in Canada and one of the most multicultural cities in the world. Montreal is the cultural capital of the country, with its wide range of festivals and museums. Quebec City, for its part, is a stunning city due to its location, architecture and historical preservation, and finally, Victoria has a rich English history dating back to the 1840s when the city was established as a trading port. Each city is worth the detour.
Beyond those cities lie incredible landscapes, packed with adventures: towering mountains, dense rainforests, massive glaciers, secluded lakes and even remote beaches are home to great hiking experiences, canoeing, fishing, skiing, exploring National Parks, and much more. The wildlife is equally impressive as you may encounter grizzly bears, whales, moose and polar bears. Canada is an amazing playground of adventurers whether is it swimming off Prince Edward Island’s beaches, surfing in Nova Scotia, kayaking on the South Nahanni River in the Northwest Territories, or skiing in Whistler’s mountains.
Due to this country’s extensive size, the food choice is extremely diverse: you would try wild salmon and scallops in British Columbia, poutine in Québec and lobster with melted butter in the Maritime provinces.
Art is an integral part of Canada’s cultural landscape; there are plenty museums, as well as festivals such as the Montreal’s Jazz Festival and Toronto’s star-studded Film Festival attracting global crowds. Even St John’s and Woody Point put on renowned events such as big-name writers’ festival and a sound symposium.
