  • Parks Canada is inviting all visitors to celebrate the 150th anniversary of their magnificent national parks by making entrance completely free of charge during the whole of 2017. If you are travelling beyond this date, you can purchase a Discovery Pass which covers entrance into all parks for up to seven people (in one vehicle) for a period of two years. Entrance into national historic sites is also included. The fee is approximately CAD$140, whereas a single park entrance is approximately CAD$20. There has never been a better time to experience the grandeur of Canada’s 45 national parks and 171 national historic sites.

    Consisting of ten provinces and three territories, Canada is the world’s second largest country (by total area) yet it has a little over 10% of the total population of the USA. On the door step of the major cities of Toronto, Montreal, HalifaxQuebec CityVancouverCalgary and Edmonton there are vast areas of natural beauty just waiting for you to explore and experience a ‘great outdoors’ holiday.

    Distances can be significant if you’re thinking of taking a fly drive or escorted tour, so it’s perhaps not a first choice destination for a family with young children however because there’s so much to see and do, it’s a great destination for an active family with teenagers looking to spend time hiking, biking, climbing, riding and exploring the majesty of the dramatic wilderness and scenery. A key part of planning that perfect Canadian holiday are the activities in each location so make sure you visit our Experience & Explore sections throughout the site for ideas of what to do so you can be sure to allow sufficient time in each location.

    The seasons are much defined, with the more temperate months being from May through to September so this would be the best time of year to visit. If you’re looking for a winter sports holiday then British Columbia Alberta offer exceptional skiing and snowboarding conditions from late November through to March.
