Canada is a vast and rugged country. Although it is the second largest country in the world, it only represents 0.5% of the world’s population. Spanning more than half the Northern Hemisphere and extending right to the Arctic, Canada boasts a superlative landscape, untamed wilderness, amazing wildlife, and charming cities. With so much to see and such a large area to discover, it helps to have a well-planned itinerary.
In the north, unforgettable adventure awaits. Witness the dancing Northern Lights, explore the vast Yellowknife National Park and hook your best catch. The North is also home to some of the most amazing wildlife, from polar bears and beluga whales, to wolves, caribou, and the Canada lynx.
In British Columbia, come face to face with the grizzly bears fishing for salmons, orcas and humpbacks while neighbouring Rockies is one of the most beautiful mountain range in the world. Take in all these view on a luxury rail journey through the Rockies. Other than the nature and wildlife, the charming cities of Vancouver, Victoria and Quebec are favourite city breaks.
As the country is huge, the weather can be quite different between states but generally May to October is a good time to visit.
June to October is a good time to see the grizzly bears in British Columbia while Jul to Nov is for polar bears in Churchill. If you plan to catch the Northern Lights, winter season from Oct to March is more ideal.
