Canada Destination guide

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Canada in a way like no other. From its size to its soul, Canada is simply enormous. It’s the second largest country on earth, home to an abundance of wonders, with the mighty Niagara Falls, the glacial peaks of The Rockies, and more lakes than the rest of the world combined. It’s also home to the giant moose and the world’s largest population of wild bears, while massive whales swim off the east coast. From the impossibly blue waters of Moraine Lake to the red-sand beaches on Prince Edward Island, Canada is a scenic masterpiece. Our Canada holidays take you beyond the phenomenal landscapes and delve deeper into the culture of the country. We’ll take you to the ancestral grounds of the First Nation Secwepemc people where you’ll see a traditional kekuli winter homestead, then introduce you to a family-run vineyard in Vancouver Island, where you’ll enjoy a home cooked meal and toast to The Good Life with local wine. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
