A huge country, Canada covers an area of over 3.8 million square miles. It is well-known for its quality of life, multi-lingual traditions and stunning scenery. The Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut are some of the most remote places on the planet which see few tourists. However, Canada also has bustling cities that are not dissimilar from anything that you'd expect to find in the rest of North America. Banff National Park is one of the most-visited natural places in the country and is the largest of the country's nationally maintained parkland. Indeed, our hoteliers guarantee that Canada has plenty to offer in terms of activities, attractions and things to do.
Transports in Canada
If you want to get around cheaply, then check out some of the ride-sharing websites in Canada which offer the chance to split the costs of fuel – ideal if you are travelling across the country. Rail travel in Canada is safe, clean and efficient. It takes about three days to get from Toronto to the Pacific coast by rail, however. Distances are always quoted in kilometres in Canada.
WHEN TO GO TO CANADA ?
Spring is one of the best times to come to Canada for seeing its natural beauty. In addition, several music festivals are held at this time of year, such as Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. Ontario also stages a theatrical festival at this time of year. The Carnaval de Québec takes place in late January and this is also the time to come if you like to watch winter sports, such as ice hockey and snowboarding events.
