The Voyage Prive travel expert’s opinion on tours in Canada
Canada is the second-largest country in the world, and completely unique in its cultural diversity and breadth of natural wonder. Broad, wild expanses rub shoulders with bustling urban life. Marvels like the Horseshoe Niagara Falls draw hundreds of thousands of visitors, whilst in the national parks of Alberta, you can feel completely alone and free.
Canadian culture is a blend of British and French influences, evident in its dual nationality and the languages spoken. There are also plenty of other cultural influences, which all become apparent when you see the vast array of cuisines on offer when you go out to eat. Classic Canadian fare like Poutine and Peameal Bacon are must-tries, but keep your eyes peeled for fine dining joints, excellent Italian cuisine and plenty of exquisitely cooked meat.
Top 5 things to see and do in Canada during a tour
1. Visit Quebec
A trip to Canada isn’t complete without experiencing the French Canadian way of life. Quebec is home to the second-largest French-speaking city after Paris: Montreal. Learn about Colonial France, immerse yourself in history and marvel at the amazing architecture of Montreal. Top tip: You’ll get more out of your trip if you learn a little French before you go.
2. Go hiking in Banff National Park, Alberta
Clear, blue waters, thermal springs and the jaw-droppingly scenic backdrop of the Rockies; Bannf National Park really is a place to both lose and find yourself in equal measure. There are over a thousand miles of hiking trails in this wild and wonderful paradise, so get your boots on and find a friend who would love to explore.
3. Visit Nova Scotia
Ocean lovers must seek out Nova Scotia. This province in Eastern Canada is full of family-friendly activities and has 27 museums and plenty of local theatres for culture vultures. Relax in one of the many beautiful parks, or go wild with one of numerous adventure activities. Travellers can kayak, raft, sail, surf- or even check out mud-sliding! For dinner, it has to be the local lobster. A seaside trip you won’t forget.
4. Wolf Lake, Yukon
For those that like to really escape into nature, Wolf Lake is the ideal destination. An hour’s drive from Whitehorse, the capital of Yukon, this unspoiled lake and surrounding tundra are a dream spot for any budding wildlife photographers. A rare treat for anyone who likes to see nature untouched by human intervention.
5. Horseshoe Falls, Ontario
Even if you’ve visited the American Niagara Falls, you haven’t seen the full drama until you’ve seen the Canadian side, called Horseshoe Falls. Horseshoe Falls has the highest flow-rate and provides hydraulic power, as well as being intensely beautiful. A sight guaranteed to take your breath away.

What is the weather in Canada?
Travelling to Canada is great at all times of year, depending on what you want out of your holiday. Canada in the winter months is a skier's paradise, while travelling during summer opens up hiking trails across stunning national parks, plus plenty of water-based activities and city life. Canada has a seasonal climate similar to most of Europe, only those seasons tend to be a little more extreme. Nature lovers might enjoy the Canadian spring, which normally starts around April, when the snow melts to reveal lush forests, wildflowers and the emerging wildlife.
What budget to plan?
The Canadian currency is the Canadian dollar, or CAD at the Bureau de Change. Booking one of our Canada tours normally means you get your hotels included, and often much more, so check your itinerary to understand what your additional costs might be. Meals out range from $20 to $50 per person, depending on how high-end the restaurant is. Tipping is customary in Canada, with restaurant tips averaging around 15% and taxi tips 10-15%. Cash machines are widely available and while in the cities, card payments are accepted at most hotels and restaurants.
