Unrivalled wildlife experiences, a rich history and culture, exquisite cuisine, cities that never stop and natural wonders that will leave you in awe. Canada is #1, and it does it in style

Churchill, Manitoba is known as the ‘polar bear capital of the world’. Here you’ll find warm hospitality and a chance to see polar bears in their natural environment – every wildlife enthusiast’s dream! Seeing the mother bears tend to their cubs and witnessing the male bears play-fight is truly a sight to behold.

Can you imagine photographing a grizzly bear at such close range that you can see every hair on its face? Or a Pacific grey whale, at the very peak of a magnificent breach? Well, you can with wildlife watching experiences during a trip to British Columbia!

There’s nothing quite like a magical encounter with an animal or bird in its natural setting. From songbirds to large, lumbering moose, wide open spaces make Saskatchewan a wildlife viewing paradise. Seek out burrowing owls, sage grouse, elk and white-tailed deer, moose, beaver and many more.

British Columbia’s culture combines a unique mix of European, Asian, and First Nations influences. Many of British Columbia’s First Nations had plenty of time to devote to the arts thanks to the province’s abundant salmon, timber and other natural resources. The same totem poles have stood in several British Columbia communities for centuries. Head to Stanley Park in Vancouver to see some of these beautiful totem poles.

Immerse yourself in history and culture, museum and art exhibitions, hands-on science or galactic discoveries – it’s all within reach at Montréal’s many museums and galleries. Carefully curated exhibitions make the city’s large museums and cultural centres always worth a visit.

Québec’s culinary heritage has been booming over the past few years – in fact, it’s shaping up to be a real gourmet revolution. This excitement toward local cuisine is driven by several internationally celebrated Québec chefs, the proliferation of renowned restaurants, the growing popularity of gourmet events and the myriad of food festivals. Visit to try their amazing cuisine for yourself!

Shaped by its seacoast, the world sings the praises of Nova Scotia’s seafood, from Atlantic salmon and fresh-caught lobster to succulent Digby scallops. Head to the Seaport Farmers’ Market to experience fantastic cuisine or take a winery tour with a renowned sommelier and sample award-winning vintages.

Whistler needs no introduction. Home to Whistler Blackcomb, North America’s largest ski resort, this year-round mountain playground is glamorous and youthful with an adventurous soul. Just beyond the comforts and cafes of Whistler, the meandering trails and ancient forests of British Columbia’s untamed wilderness beckon casual adventurers and outdoor purists alike.

Find inspiration in the wide-open spaces of the Yukon. Iconic wilderness parks and a dynamic First Nations culture draw you in, as you canoe mighty rivers, pan for gold in the Klondike, and dance under the midnight sun. In the Yukon, one thing is certain – adventure will be your guide.

Newfoundland and Labrador is an adventurer’s paradise. Teeming with spectacular scenery, it’s the perfect place to explore and discover your inner thrill-seeker. The best part? It doesn’t matter when you visit, because outdoor experiences are available all year long.

Where the skyline of glass towers reflects the beauty of the surrounding ocean and coastal mountains. Where you can swim at the beach and explore a mountain in the same day. Where the cuisine is world-class and the nightlife electrifying. Vancouver is definitely spectacular by nature.

Canada’s capital. National sites, famous landmarks like the Rideau Canal, and museums housing stunning national collections. But Ottawa is also a vibrant, walkable, cosmopolitan with an incredible food scene created by local culinary schools and top chefs. The only way to truly experience Ottawa, is to visit.

Toronto is the heartbeat of Canadian urban life. Get dinner at a one of a kind restaurant in Queen Street West, shop in the posh Yorkville district, lose yourself in the variety of the Kensington Market, then catch an MLB, NBA or NHL game. Toronto has it all and all of it is in style.

The images of the Northern Lights’ bright, vibrant colours filling the dark night sky don’t even come close to experiencing it in real life. And if you want to experience the real thing, the Northwest Territories is the place to do it. Capital city Yellowknife has been dubbed the ‘Aurora Capital of North America’, but the entire territory provides unrivalled opportunities to see the skies explode with reds, blues, and greens.

New Brunswick is the home of the Bay of Fundy. A staggering 100 billion tonnes of seawater flows in and out of the stunning Bay of Fundy twice a day. At high tide visitors kayak off the coast and as the tide shifts and the sea recedes, you can walk along the ocean floor to see its oddly shaped rock formations.

Prince Edward Island has an impressive coastline that offers some of the most stunning vistas in the world.
