The glinting glaciers of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and buzzing cafes of Montreal, whale spotting from the pink beaches of Edward Island and cooling off in the spray of the thundering Niagra Falls… welcome to our Canada travel guide.
The second biggest country in the world, Canada is a vast wilderness with pockets of sophistication appearing suddenly in between snow-capped peaks and deep, dark forests. Cities such as Toronto and Vancouver are as cosmopolitan as they come, but trek into the heart of Alaska and you’ll feel as if little has changed since aboriginal times.
So where to start when planning your Canadian adventure?
Here are our picks of the best things to see and do in Canada. And don’t forget to check out our list of 100 things to do in Canada before you die.

When to visit Canada
The best season to visit Canada depends on what sort of holiday you’re looking for.
Spring sees the snow gradually melting to reveal forests and wild flowers. March to June are particularly lovely months in Toronto because there are so many cultural things to do, from festivals to exhibitions.
Summer’s long, balmy evenings are ideal for getting out in nature, while September is the peak of the salmon run, meaning your chances of spotting bears are higher than at any other time of the year.
And of course ski resorts such as Whistler and Banff come alive in winter with pristine slopes and countless cozy bars. Not a skier? Check out our guide to Canadian winter festivals that are well worth their air fare.

Best way to explore Canada
Planning your road trip
Massive and mesmerising, Canada is a country that could have been dreamed up by adventurous explorers.
On four wheels is the perfect way to see it, but knowing your distances is crucial. The drive from Vancouver in the west to Quebec City in the east is more than 3,000 miles.
There are so many things to see on a road trip across Canada it can be hard narrowing down your route. One of the most spectacular is from Vancouver to Alaska, through British Columbia and Yukon Territory. Expect cobalt blue mountain lakes and the shadows of moose through the gloom of the pine forests.
And did you know there was a desert in Canada? Discover rattlesnakes, great wines and the desert of Osoyoos on a quirky road trip to the Okanagan Valley.
Rest and relaxation
Canada’s immense collection of natural wonders lends itself to activity holidays but you don’t have to be an adventurous type to enjoy your visit.
Escaping the cold to luxuriate in a spa is one of the best things to do in Canada in winter. Soak in an outdoor bath on the edge of a rolling cedar forest at Scandinave Spa Whistler or enjoy a calming facial in a snow-dusted log cabin at Thermae.
There are also more than 30 natural hot springs throughout the country. Those at Lussier, British Columbia, are particularly beautiful.
Alternately, embrace life in the slow lane on one of Canada’s most beautiful islands. Dig for giant clams on Prince Edward Island, or explore the Île d’Orléans, which has a smattering of romantic villages surrounded by lush vineyards.

Outdoor activities and adventures
OH Canada! Where do we even begin…
Does learning to surf at the famously laid-back Tofino take your fancy? How about snorkelling with beluga whales in Manitoba? Have the most clandestine chasms and remote mountain meadows of the Canadian Rockies to yourself with a heli-hiking trip, or set off for the ultimate Arctic adventure, spotting polar bears and sowy foxes as you go.
Don’t blame us if you don’t end up catching that flight back home…
Tours and sightseeing
On a country of this scale (and with such extreme weather), a tour can be the best way to focus your trip and allow you to push your experience to the limits.
Why not live like a cowboy in Canada’s Grasslands National park or cruise Ontario’s tranquil canals on a luxury barge?
A train tour is a nostalgic way to see the country and the Rocky Mountaineer harks back to Canada’s golden age of rail travel. Sip martinis and relax on velvet seats as monumental vistas flash by.
Skiing and snowboarding
With its long winters and profusion of rugged mountains, Canada is a winter sports enthusiast’s paradise.
Whistler and Banff are the fun-loving poster girls of Western Canada’s ski scene. It’s here, mostly in Alberta and British Columbia, that you’ll find the legendary deep powder snow that sprays like champagne at the lightest brush of a ski.
In Eastern Canada, much of the action is focused on Quebec’s gentle slopes which are peppered with historic villages and family-fun hotels that have barely changed in generations. There’s plenty for non-skiers to get excited about too… Check out our guide to Canadian winters for non skiers.
The best time to visit Canada for snow is from December to March.
Festivals and Events
From Calgary’s stampede to Shambhala, one of the biggest music festivals in Canada, your bound to find an event to get you excited.
Edmonton’s Fringe Theatre Festival is the oldest and biggest of its kind in North America, and is something of a rite of passage for theatre folk. The Montreal Jazz Festival is the biggest in the world, while New Brunswick’s is far more intimate. Read all about it here.
The weather might be cool for Quebec’s Winter Carnival, but it’s an utterly heartwarming tradition that’s great for families. With its winter sports, ice sculptures and parades, it’s one of the best things to see in Canada in winter.

Alongside their infamous politeness, Canadians are also known for their hearty, wholesome cooking. So what food do they eat in Canada?
Every region has its specialities: Ontario’s kitchens are often filled with the smell of warm butter tarts, Newfoundland’s fishing communities love fish and brewis (salt cod and pork scratchings) and Calgarians can’t get enough of spicy Caesar cocktails.
Roll up your sleeves and get stuck into our tasty guide of the best places to eat in Canada.
Where to find the best maple syrup
As synonymous with Canada as grizzly bears and Ryan Gosling, Maple trees are the country’s official symbol as well as a key contributor to breakfasts everywhere. In fact, Canada produces more than 90% of the world’s maple syrup.
Most of it comes from gorgeous Quebec Province, where traditional sugar shacks still open their doors every March, inviting visitors in to sample their wares and make chewy syrup taffy in the snow.
Sucrerie de la Montagne has been drawing the crowds for more than 30 years, while Cosman and Webb produce top quality organic syrup on their third generation family farm.
Where to find the best Poutine
A delectable combination of french fries, cheese curds and gravy, poutine has been Canada’s culinary calling card since the 1950s. It’s top of our list of what to eat in Canada when you visit, particularly during those cold, crisp winter nights.
