What Kind of Trip Can You Have in Canada?


Holidays are very much on people’s minds these days. After a long year of lockdowns and social distancing, many are looking at their getaway options as restrictions begin to ease. While it may be a while yet before we can travel as we once did, it doesn’t hurt to explore what kinds of holidays are on the horizon. If Canada is on your bucket list, below are the types of holidays you can have in this vast country.

 

 

A Skiing Holiday

Canada is famed for its ski and snowboard resorts. From big resort names like Whistler, Tremblant, and Lake Louise to lesser-knowns like Kimberly, Fernie, and Panorama, there is no shortage of choice when it comes to this type of holiday. 

If you’re after a multi-trip ski holiday, your best option might be to travel to Banff and Jasper National Parks in Alberta. Not only are there multiple ski resorts to choose from, but you also get to soak in the sights of one of the most spectacular national parks in the world. Or, if you want something closer to the city, Whistler offers a luxurious skiing holiday that’s only an hour’s drive from Vancouver. Or, for those leaning towards the eastern side of the country, there are over 50 different ski hills to choose from in Ontario and Quebec.

 

Business Trips

While Canada is most famed for its wilderness, it also offers a lot when it comes to urban trips for business travellers meeting clients here. Toronto is home to nearly 3 million people and has a diverse population and offers much in the way of shopping, art galleries, and nightlife – the perfect places for getting to know clients on a more casual basis. This cosmopolitan city is also situated on the edge of Lake Ontario,so as well as providing tourists with an urban vibe, there are also plenty of parks and beaches to enjoy.

Vancouver, situated right on the ocean and at the base of the Rocky Mountains, is picturesque city that is ideal for people who want the best of both urban and nature while on a business trip, and it is awash with museums, markets, city parks, shopping centres, restaurants, bars, and cafes. If you are organizing a corporate business meeting in Canada, you can always enlist the help of experts who can provide an insight into how to make the trip simple while being able to enjoy the most of your time while in Canada. 

 

A Camping Holiday

If you’re after a holiday that offers the best of the great outdoors, then a camping holiday in Canada is also a must. Whether you’re after a bare-bones experience where you have to fetch your own water or something with modern amenities, Canada has over 2,500 campgrounds to choose from. You can camp virtually anywhere in the country. While the mountains are often the most popular destinations, Canada has plenty of other beautiful camping spots in the flatter regions of the country. Many of these are surrounded by lakes or otherforested areasso it’s worth casting the net wide to see what tickles your fancy.

 

A Road Trip Holiday

It might sound strange to travel to another country to do a road trip, but Canada is one of the best places to do it. This includes long cross-country trips or ones that explore all reaches of a single province. One of the reasons this type of holiday is recommended in Canada is because the roads are often straight and wide (depending on the area), and the small population means that there can be very few vehicles on the road. So, if you love driving and seeing amazing scenery along the way, why not opt for a Canadian road trip?
