Self-drive through the Rockies and visit Canada's highlights including Toronto, Vancouver and Niagara Falls on your tailor-made tour

Canada is the stuff that pioneer dreams were made of, an expanse of glacier-strewn mountains, rolling prairies and vast inland seas. In the remote north, the aurora borealis lights up the sky, while in backwoods wildernesses, bear, elk, wolves and moose roam. Yet Canada is also modern and forward-thinking, with a rich First Nations culture. Dynamic melting-pot cities like Vancouver attract gastronomists, while arty Montréal nurtures its own fiercely independent French-speaking identity.

Our Canada specialists, having navigated the country by road, rail and water, have become experts in all things Canadian. They can plan a trip that allows you to explore its regions as you wish — whether that’s self-driving through the Rockies, bear watching by Zodiac in the early morning or walking through one of the country’s diverse cities on a guided food tour.
