about Canada

Close your eyes and drop your finger on the map. You can’t really go wrong in Canada, a vast land where the many different regions cater to all travellers’ tastes. There’s snowy tundra and stunning wilderness to the north, and the grassy prairies of Regina and Winnipeg to the south. Hear tales of the briny blue over a pint in the fishing towns on the east coast, or tackle another earthly element on the mountainous ski slopes to the west.

The major cities are just as diverse. The bustling capital, Ottawa, showcases enough galleries, theatres and nightspots to keep you busy every day of the year, while Quebec and Montreal proudly exhibit the ties to France that make up an important part of Canada’s history. With their European architecture and widely spoken French, it’s as if you’ve crossed the North Atlantic without even realising. Don’t forget your phrase book.
