British passport holders looking to holiday in Canada for up to 6 months do not need a visa. Before you board your flight it’s a good idea to exchange some pounds into Canadian Dollars to have with you when you arrive. The exchange rate between the dollar and pound fluctuates constantly so keep an eye on the market and make your purchase when a good exchange rate is available. For travel on non-British passports or for more information, please ask your consultant.
Things to do in Canada
If you're the owner of an adventurous spirit, you're going to love Canada. This is after all the land of natural wonders, where serene prairies, world class ski resorts and Rocky Mountains offer a wealth of possibilities. Canada is also the stomping ground of grizzly bears, badgers, moose and bison. But its wild side doesn't just live in the wilderness. The cities too are known for their untamed nightlife, exotic festivals and lively culture. So whether it's a city stay or a trek into the wild, a Canadian holiday won't disappoint.
Most international flights disembark in Toronto, Canada's largest city. This worldly city is where you can get a taste of city living - Canadian style. See the city from above at the CN tower, wander the halls of the Royal Ontario Museum, witness the passion of an ice hockey game and at the end of the day, recline with a cocktail in the Entertainment District. Though it may be home to luxury hotels and famous film festivals, even in Canada's largest city you can take a 90 minute drive to one of the world's most famous natural wonders, the thrilling Niagara Falls.
Vancouver is the beating heart of British Colombia. Young and vivacious, Vancouver is a place many dream of living in, and it's easy to see why. From beaches to forests, snow capped mountains and bustling city streets, activities abound this city. Nature lovers won't want to miss walking the Capilano Suspension Bridge, climbing the Coast Mountains or bike riding through Stanley Park. Or if you'd prefer a more informative fix, visit the Vancouver Art Gallery, Science World or Vancouver Aquarium.
Montreal, Quebec's largest city, is another must visit destination. A centre for design and the arts, Montreal is a cultural hub beloved for its old world architecture and multicultural community. Discover Montreal's mature side by exploring the Old City, visiting the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts or enjoying the sounds of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra. For something a little more light hearted, be entertained by the city's booming circus scene, consisting of Cirque Du Soliel, the National Circus School and La TOHU.
