    A quick guide to Canada

    If you’re looking for a place where you can discover beautiful scenery, have great photo opportunities, eat good meals and do all of this on a reasonable budget then Canada could be the place for you. With outstanding natural beauty Canada has been a popular tourist destination for years. Very warm summers and beautiful snowy winters mean you can experience different types of holidays depending on when you travel. Companies like offer good options such as Thomas Cook all inclusive holidays throughout the year, making a trip to Canada the perfect break to see something and unwind.

    Accommodation – Canada has a wide array of accommodation options for your holiday, ranging from campsites and log cabins to hotels and large resorts. All inclusive board is a great way to ensure your meals are included and all you have to worry about is what to go and see. It’s also a cheaper way of holidaying as you frequently save money in the long run.

    The Northern Lights – Contrary to popular belief you do not have to go to Northern Europe to view the northern lights, as they can be viewed in Canada as well. Churchill, Lake Superior and Yellowknife are all great places to view the lights, but it’s recommended you go with a guide due to the threat of polar bears in some areas.

    Yoho National Park – One of Canada’s most popular and beautiful resorts, the Yoho National Park has huge cliff faces, tumbling waterfalls and the most breath-taking of emerald green water. For an area with national park status it is relatively small at ‘only’500 square miles, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in beauty. You can also see glaciers, rolling hills and the famous Takakkaw Falls.

    Banff National Park – Situated next to the Yoho Park, Banff is popular for its outstanding beauty and wildlife. If you visit at the right time of day you’ll see moose, caribou and deer down by the water’s edge. Due to its proximity to the Yoho National Park it’s possible to visit both in the same holiday, and this is highly recommended.

    Montreal – The second largest city in Canada, Montreal is popular in the summer months as a city destination with great weather. The winters see temperatures range from just above freezing to -20, which explains why the city sees most of its tourists visiting in the summer months. The Canadian Railway museum is popular among tourists, as is Old Montreal, a wonderfully well preserved old town, showing what the architecture and town were like before its growth into a huge city. Montreal’s Museum of Fine Arts is also popular and houses some great works of art, a must see if you’re into your paintings.
