INCLUDES FLIGHT, HOTEL & MORE in Canada
Despite the enormous size of the country, there is feeling of one big community for those who holidaying in Canada, perhaps unsurprising considering that its name derives from a Native American word for village. Consistently ranking among the happiest citizens of the world, Canadians are always welcoming and sociable, regardless of whether you bump into someone from Vancouver, Toronto or a French-speaking Quebec native. In some of the bigger cities, this unrivalled friendliness is matched with a number of sights, sounds, and tastes to experience.
Toronto sits on the banks of Lake Ontario and is a city that has a distinctive bohemian charm to it. The city offers lots of different and quirky things to do, climb to the top (or take the lift) of the 1,815-feet-tall CN Tower and gaze at the stunning views of the city, try the EdgeWalk, testing how well you handle heights by being suspended almost vertically from the side of the tower’s viewing platform. Those wanting to unlock their inner-lumberjack can learn how to throw an axe at the BATL Grounds. Alternatively, those seeking more leisurely times can go shopping in Kensington Market in the city centre, or catch live classical music being played in the gardens of the gorgeous Casa Loma, when visiting in summer.
A short drive south from Toronto will take you to the Niagara Falls. With an average of over 4 million cubic feet of water flowing over the fall every minute from three different waterfalls, the falls are an awe-inspiring sight to behold. Go on boat cruises that will take you up close to the falls, and admire this natural wonder. Across this vast country, you’ll find Vancouver, another city with lots of spark and life. Here, trek through the gigantic Stanley Park to get the perfect view of the stunning skyline. Shop in the trendy area of South Main, visit the peaceful Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden and then find a good restaurant near the harbour, where you can tuck into freshly caught seafood, while watching the sunset over the mountains.
