Since Canada is the second only to Russia in terms of size, a Canada holiday isn't short of things to explore! If you're after a challenge, make sure you visit Vancouver every Sunday to attempt the Grouse Grind - a trail up the mountain just shy of three kilometres. Alternatively visit the capital Ottawa and take in the stunning architecture. No trip to Canada is complete without visiting the magnificent Niagara Falls. If heat isn't for you head towards the Winter Carnival and ice hotel in Quebec during the colder months to see it transformed into a winter wonderland.
The fact that there are flights to Canada from many major UK airports means that the country's easily accessible - making it perfect for a much needed break for a few weeks away from real life. Air Canada, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Air Transat are the only companies that currently offer direct flights to Canada so shop around to ensure that you get the best deal. Various other companies do offer indirect flights but these can work out slightly more expensive. One of Canada's busiest airports for international flight is the Lester B Pearson International Airport, located 27 kilometres north west of Toronto.
If you're looking to travel long distances during your holiday in Canada, domestic flights are ideal. Air Canada offers the largest network and has the most frequent flights. Alternatively take advantage of the trains and buses - just be aware they could take a lot longer to get from A to B!
Being such a vast country there'll be hundreds of hotels to choose from when booking your holiday in Canada. So make sure that you compare prices with dealchecker and book when in advance when you choose your hotel in Canada.
Keep an eye out for the company VIA Rail Canada during your travels if you need to catch the train as they offer lots of different special deals for travellers. It's worth investing in the Canrailpass if you're looking to get around a lot during your holiday in Canada - it allows you 12 days of travel anywhere in Canada during a 30 day period.
If you're an experienced hiker make sure you put it in your diary to visit The Trans Canada Trail - it links together 16,500 kilometres of trails throughout the country so you best pack your walking boots! It's open to horse riders, hikers and cyclist and best of all it's free! Some areas may charge car parking.
