INTRODUCTION TO CANADA

Oh Canada! Arguably one of the most idyllic travel destinations on the planet, there’s literally nothing this outrageously beautiful country doesn’t offer – awesome cities, first class food, magnificent nature, the best winter sports scene in the world, and that’s before we’ve even mentioned the warm, welcoming nature of Canadians themselves, often cited as the friendliest people on earth. If you’re planning a trip to Canada, we have one piece of advice – do it!

Let’s jump in with the cities, shall we? A tour of Canada with Contiki could see you stopping off in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Quebec City, each one offering an entirely different vibe to the next. ‘Turrono’, the city that gave us Drake, the Blue Jays and the iconic CN Tower, is hipster in a totally non assuming way, whilst Vancouver takes the biscuit when it comes to two things – accessibility to nature, and the foodie scene (just don’t tell the other cities that). Eclectic Montreal is arguably the country’s cultural juggernaut, whilst charming Quebec is romance, grandeur and class personified.

But enough city talk, we know why you’re really here – for a Canadian Rockies tour, am I right? An adventure into Canada’s most outstanding area of natural beauty will take you through Jasper and Banff, rubbing your eyes in disbelief at the emerald hues of Lake Louise & Peyto Lake, white water rafting down the pounding Frasier River, or maybe hopping on horseback for a back country hack followed by a campfire meal. When we say Canada doesn’t mess around when it comes to outdoor pursuits, we really do mean it.

Adventuring all day every day is hungry business, so it’s lucky really you’re in a place that takes food very seriously. Local specialties like poutine, bannock, peameal bacon and beavertails are all essentials you need to try, but maybe given their calorie count space them out between trialing out the diverse foodie scenes of each city. Whether you’re looking for food trucks, trendy cafes complete with bowling lanes or gourmet dining, the opportunities are boundless.
