It won’t surprise you to know that as the world’s second largest country, Canada has an abundant range of landscape, scenery, culture, experiences and wildlife. From the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Coast in the west of the country to the multi-cultural cities of the east and the Atlantic Coast, this is a country of enormous size with adventure around every corner.

Weather and when to go

Spring and autumn are lovely times to visit and the typical touring season runs from May to October. The summer months are long, warm and sunny. Depending on your altitude and activities, you may well need to pack waterproof outdoor clothing, even in the warmer months.
