Why should you travel to Canada with us?

Like road trips, adventure, high peaks and big open skies? We’ve got just the thing.

Cities that feel distinctly European, with mountains and National Parks that feel torn straight out of the soil of Argentina and the American West. Canada is the second-largest country in the world, and from the pretty, pine-fringed bounds of Lake Ontario (say hello, Toronto) to the thundering and dramatic ice of the distant Northwest Passage, this is a vast and historic country. For over a decade, we’ve been curating immersive, high-energy and culturally rich forays into this wild and wholesome place. Perfect for family road-trips and multigenerational adventures, with the option to watch whales, spot bears, climb, bike, hike sail and eat (and very well, at that). French Quebec to the immense, natural wonder of Vancouver, you’re never too far from a stunning wilderness or a vibrant city.

Giving Switzerland and Colorado a run for their money, we proudly declare Canada as one of the world’s best destinations for a luxury winter holiday.

Top Locations in Canada

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Canada, we’d go for these.
British Columbia, Canada

British Columbia

Ascend through peak, forest and cloud to reach the indomitable Sky Highway.

Head far out West, and you’ll find one of the world’s most dramatic – and thriving – cities: Vancouver. Set on an incredible, glacier-fed bay, you can zoom across the water in search of whales, soak up the incredible cultural and culinary scene, and explore the scenic (read: dramatic) Pacific coastline – bristling with deep forests, huge peaks, and incredible skies. The kayaking here is probably the best, and the most fulfiling, in the entire world.

Explore Banff National Park

Banff National Park

The untamed nature of this ancient place will get your heart racing like nowhere else.

Gigantic, snow-capped mountains mirrored in glassy lakes. Forests of dark, needle pine whose scent will knock you off your feet. Banff is quintessential Canada, and perfect for small towns, climactic road trips, and incredible adventure. The city of Banff itself is a buzzing, fun and vibrant city from which to go truly off-piste.

Toronto city skyline at sunset



The sprawling, cultural city of Toronto – along the shores of beautiful Lake Ontario – is one of the country’s most vibrant hubs; with huge investment into its culture, arts, heritage and entertainment scene. From the iconic CN Tower and Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) to the fortress of St York and the on-trend Distillery District. The perfect base from which to explore perhaps the world’s most famous waterfall, Niagara.
