How to explore Canada?
Canada is fascinating. Canada is beautiful. Canada is enormous, and there is no right or wrong way to explore this incredible country. The questions you should ask yourself are how long do you have and what type of holiday are you looking for?
Each city has its own identity and personality; the West Side is often associated with adventure and wildlife and the East Side are proud of their French culture and rich history. Whichever city you visit you will be overwhelmed with the range of attractions, festivals and events for you to discover, each having their own unique beauty and charm.

Whether you want to combine a number of city breaks into one so that you see as much as possible, or perhaps you would prefer to have a contrasting holiday and combine a city break with an adventure tour, or maybe you would like a taste of Canada and America by dividing your holiday between the two countries. There are hundreds of multi centre possibilities which we will tailor make to your requirements. For ideas of our most popular multi-centre holidays see pages 156-159.
