Our specialists are passionate about Canada’s wintry pleasures, from the snowy peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the colonial cobbled streets of Québec City. Snowfall does affect road conditions and we don’t recommend any self-drive itineraries at this time of year, but our specialists are experts in dealing with winter logistics and can arrange for you to travel about with a private driver, as well as by coach or train.

Our suggested tours have been inspired by the activities we’ve enjoyed most, from snowmobiling tours to dog-sledding lessons. Your winter trip to Canada will be completely tailored to your interests, so these ideas are only intended to inspire your own planning.
