What can I see and do?

With the diversity of Canada, you can see and do just about anything your heart desires - from kayaking through giant fjords near Vancouver, to spotting whales and orcas, and trekking through subarctic worlds of ice or temperate rainforests. Dive deeper into First Nations culture. Experience the Canadian Wild West in the most fitting way possible - on horseback with a cowboy cookout lunch. Hop on a seaplane and journey along the historic mail route between Gold River and Kyuquot.

How long do I need in Canada?

Canada is the second largest country in the world. You could spend months travelling the ever-changing landscape and not see the same place twice. For your holiday, the question becomes, "How long do I have?".

Travel at a relaxed pace

A great solo holiday comes with enough time to truly reset and get into a new rhythm. When you don't have to rush or be on anyone else's agenda. We recommend travelling at a relaxed pace for a minimum of three weeks. If you have slightly less time, your travel specialist can help you choose the best regions that suit your wishes.

How do I travel around?

From coastal roads, to panoramic mountain passes, and awe-inspiring glacier landscapes, Canada is best explored by car. The roads are safe and the views from your car are often magnificent. A self-drive holiday means you're able to reach places that group trips and campervans cannot.

  • A navigation system
  • Air-conditioning
  • Full insurance and low fuel costs
  • Hire cars that are less than six months old
