Your Holiday

Your Destinations

Banff National Park

The Banff National Park is the epitome of Canada's great, untamed wilderness. This area's rugged mountain tops, glistening lakes and roaring waterfalls are all on a monumental scale... it really needs to be seen to be believed! Through all of this natural beauty, guests may also be able to spot bears, elk, moose and wolves along with lots of other freely roaming animals.

Kamloops

With over 100 breathtaking lakes within easy reach, and endless opportunities for outdoor sports such as biking, golfing and snowboarding, Kamloops is a charming Canadian city. Thanks to its unique location at the meeting point of the north and south Thompson rivers, Kamloops offers wide grasslands, endless scenery and towering mountains - a true insight into British Columbian living.

Vancouver

The harbourside city of Vancouver is a bustling metropolis overflowing with rich diversity. Catering to any interest through the year, visitors and locals alike can take to the waters and enjoy endless year-round water sports, venture to the old-growth forests for a tree-top adventure, or sit back and delight in an evening of entertainment provided by one of the big-name acts taking the stage in downtown Vancouver.

Toronto

Toronto is Canada's largest city with more restaurants and live theatres than anywhere else in the country. From the famous CN Tower, to the Harbour front Centre with its lakeside shopping and dining, and the new fashionable Distillery District, Toronto is deservedly the most popular gateway to Canada.
