Experience wildlife in the wilderness, nightlife in the cities and the high life in great hotels
Canada is famed for its big outdoors; its towering, snow-capped mountains, its horizon-wide lakes, its vast expanses of dense forest and its rugged coastline. Not to mention one of the world’s most dramatic water spectacles – the stupendous Niagara Falls.
But this 18 day tour shows you another side to the great Canadian experience. The world’s second largest country is also home to some of its most interesting cities. The walled city of Quebec with its history and flavour of France. Ottawa, featuring the UNESCO listed Rideau Canal. And, of course, Toronto with the CN Tower overlooking happening restaurants, busy markets, iconic architecture, theatres, galleries and a vibrant nightlife.
Shopping is a big draw, in the chic boutiques along Queen Street, in elegant department stores like Holt Renfrew, the ethnic/bohemian/arty mish mash of outlets in Kensington Market and the enormous Eaton Center. Then there’s the CN Tower to climb, new iconic works of architecture to admire, museums to inspect, islands to picnic on just a ferry hop away and sandy beaches on a lake the size of an ocean. At night the city is alive with theatres, music venues and comedy clubs as well as being a global summit of dining, from Irish Cabbagetown to Little India, Little Greece to Little Italy and even four Little Chinatowns. You’ll stay at the contemporary SoHo Metropolitan.
