Canada is undoubtedly spectacular all-year round, no matter when you visit. The winter months however are wholly embraced throughout the country, and this is when Canada really comes into her own. Cold crisp air, blue skies and white backdrop – the weather may be chilly, but the adventure around you will take your breath away.
If you are an adrenaline junkie with a passion for hitting the slopes, Canada is home to some of the best skiing in the world. From quaint log lodges to luxury 5-star resorts, we can easily create a holiday where you spend the day traversing the power-topped mountains and then unwind with a glass of bubbly in a hot tub under the stars. Après ski, after all, is a way of life.
If you aren’t a passionate skier but you want to embark on a holiday full of excitement, fear not; Canada has so much more to offer for a day’s adventure. This is a country that thrives in colder weather and so countless winter sports are available to exhilarate and entertain, no matter what your tastes. From dog-sledding to snowboarding, snowmobiling to wildlife tracking, you can explore the vast, jaw-dropping landscapes in just about any manner you please. This is a thrill-seekers playground, and you can be fortunate enough to experience it for yourself.
Fancy something a little more relaxed? It couldn’t be easier to enjoy a slower pace of life in Canada’s frosty surroundings. Rail journeys through the Rockies are traditionally associated with the summer, but Canada’s Snow Train allows you to see a unique, unforgettable side of the frozen lakes and waist-deep snow that this celebrated mountain range is so famous for. Enjoy a romantic holiday with a twist by staying in a mountain cabin with unrestricted views of the awe-inspiring Northern Lights, followed by a cosy sleigh ride along the banks of one of Canada’s famous lakes. Allow yourself to be pampered in the most luxury spas and dine in world-class restaurants before cuddling up with a hot chocolate in front of a huge log fire.
