As the second largest country in the world, it is unsurprising that Canada is packed to the brim with activities to enchant, engage and entertain all ages. The stunning scenery provides the perfect backdrop for adventure; the vibrant cities are full of world-class attractions, and the open roads are just waiting to be explored by children, teenagers and adults alike. There is no doubt about it; if there is one destination that can tick all the boxes to create the perfect family holiday, it’s Canada.
Banff allows you to make your holiday as leisurely or daring as you please. Walk one of the many family-friendly mountain trails, take the kids canoeing on pristine emerald lakes or even try white-water rafting along the thundering rivers if they are a little older. You can tour glaciers one day and go zip lining through the trees the next. If the little ones aren’t feeling so adventurous, don’t fret – Banff offers lakeside strolls aplenty and picturesque gondola rides to enjoy your holiday at a slower pace. Unwind at the end of the day by going for a family splash in the hot springs; you will always be entertained!
Certainly, the fun in Banff begins from the moment you arrive. Stay at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and the kids will be greeted with a surprise gift from the hotel treasure chest. Special hikes, canoeing, winter sports and even sleepovers will keep all ages entertained no matter what the season, giving mum and dad the chance to take some well-deserved rest in luxury surroundings.
Are you a competitive clan with a love of all things sports? Calgary is home to Canada’s Olympic Park – host of the 1988 Winter Olympics – and offers fun for everyone. From bobsleighing to mini-golf, go-karting to skiing, there is something for all tastes. The only question is, who will reign victorious in your family games?
Finally, there is no better way truly experience Canada’s natural beauty than with a family camping trip! British Columbia is home to hundreds of campsites with all the amenities you could ask for. Imagine a day spent splashing in the lakes and walking the forest trails finishing with eating marshmallows by the campfire in the vast wilderness; this could soon be your reality.
See the best of Canada with all the independence you desire with a motorhome holiday. Cruise the open roads at your own pace, get off the beaten track and stop as often as you please; this is a trip that will tick the boxes for every member of your household. Cruise Canada and Fraserway RVs can sleep between 3 and 7 people, and so planning your unforgettable family holiday has never been easier.
If you would rather visit a vibrant metropolis, you’re in luck– Canada’s electric cities full of astounding experiences for all ages. Vancouver’s Stanley Park is home to a large aquarium, miniature railway and horse-drawn carriages to take you on a sightseeing tour with a difference. Why not pack a picnic, hire a bike and explore the waterfront and lush rainforest? The city is also home to the iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge. With fascinating First Nations history, a jaw-dropping view from the bridge and a Rainforest Explorers Programme for kids, this will be a day out you will never forget.
If theme parks are more your thing, Montreal’s La Ronde is the second largest in Canada, packed full of rides both heart-stopping and gentle. Among the offerings is ‘Le Monstre’ – the highest double-tracked rollercoaster in the world. Toronto also has rides to thrill the whole family – Canada’s Wonderland or Legoland are the ideal way to spend some of your break time. Got an animal lover in the house? Head to Ripley’s Aquarium, where they can have the opportunity to swim with stingrays!
