What better way to witness the beauty of Canada other than a journey on the Rocky Mountaineer Train! Enjoy a luxurious ride by rail through the Canadian Rockies and across western Canada.  With a variety of routes, all showcasing amazing scenery, much of which is inaccessible by road. Travel in style on rail cars with panoramic rooves and open-air vestibules. Allow the rocky mountaineer hosts to impart their knowledge of the tour whilst enjoying your gourmet à la carte meal on this chance of a lifetime experience. This really is what dreams are made of!

The world heritage site was first established back in 1883. Take in the views of the Canadian rocky mountains, enjoy the thermal springs and if you are lucky, you might just get some fantastic snaps of the abundant wildlife. If you enjoy a walk then there are plenty of hiking tracks to follow. If winter sports are your thing then there are ample skiing resorts just waiting for you to try out.


Boat Tours In Vancouver

Being able to see whales and other marine life just doing their own thing in their habitat must be truly amazing. You can have a 3-7 hour tour from Granville Island in Vancouver. Cruise along the Salish sea and strait of Georgia and listen to interesting facts from the tour guide along the way.

Notre Dame Basilica-Cathedral – Quebec

Admire the beautiful architecture of the Notre Dame Basilica-Cathedral. It was the first cathedral built in North America. It has undergone so many changes over the years, it is clear to see just how much effort has gone into this beautiful building. View the ornate interior and the striking stained glass windows. See the various carvings and statues of various religious figures.

So there are just a few suggestions to make your trip to Canada an unforgettable one!
