Fly-drive Canada holidays

Fly-drive Canada holidays

A Canada holiday opens up the opportunity to experience pristine and dramatic natural landscapes, incredible wildlife and unique cultural experiences. From the craggy peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the picturesque towns of Nova Scotia the best way to explore this amazing country is undoubtedly to get out on the open road. Your own vehicle gives you the freedom to explore at your own pace as well as the opportunity to get off the beaten track.  

Atlantic Canada

Canada’s Eastern coast is an area that feels like a new frontier where charming fishing villages cling to cliff sides by melodramatic rugged coastlines containing colourful fishing boats, whales and an array of fascinating marine life such as whales and orcas. Nova Scotia and the Maritimes are lands where you can drive past numerous lighthouses which punctuate sweeping bays and postcard perfect vistas, why not take the car to a secluded spot to enjoy some lobster this region is famous for? If you want to truly get off the beaten track head to Newfoundland and Labrador and discover uninhabited islands and spectacular views carved by thousands of years of glaciation.

Eastern Canada

Eastern Canada has a wealth of iconic Canadian travel experiences. Be sure not to miss out by taking the opportunity to make the most of exploring this amazing region by flying in and driving to the magnificent Niagara Falls, through the quaint French influenced towns of Quebec and through the auburns, corals and apricots of the Quebec countryside in the autumn.

British Columbia and the Rockies

With ample opportunity to immerse yourself in the outdoors British Columbia and the Rockies (link) are a self-driving paradise. Most exploration in this laid-back corner of the world begins in the city of Vancouver where you can sample locally-produced, artisanal foods by the edge of a harbour teeming with wildlife. From here you can venture to the world-famous ski resort of Whistler where you can ski, or, in the summer months hike, kayak and look for grizzly bears amongst the pine trees with the vivid Rocky Mountains in the background. Venture inland to take in the perfect reflection of Lake Louise and drive along the epic Icefields Parkway or venture north to experience the out-of-this world Northern Lights.   

Niagara Falls

The Niagara Falls is a breathtaking horseshoe of three waterfalls on the border of the USA and Canada and, as well as being an incredible attraction, it is a brilliant base from which to explore the rest of Canada.
