Summer In Canada

Canadian Vacations

Planning a holiday can be stressful at the best of times, but planning a trip in 2021 requires additional information, patience, and creativity. Vacationing in Canada during Covid may feel daunting – but Canadian vacations offer visitors the opportunity to spread out, reconnect with nature, and meet the locals. We believe the people and their small businesses make up the fabric of our great country, and we’re on a mission to introduce them to our guests.

With that in mind, we’ve created a collection of summer experiences that we think you will love. From horseback riding at wilderness resorts in BC to paddling alongside belugas in Canada’s high Arctic to coming face-to-face with grizzlies, these curated Canadian experiences will give you a summer you will never forget.

Are you a history buff who’s looking for Canada vacation ideas? Look no further. Travel back in time visiting preserved 1,000-year-old Thule archeological sites in the Arctic, home to muskox, fox, and polar bears. Interested in sustainable travel and community connection? Time on Fogo Island and visiting its Inn (where all local islanders are part owners) will leave you captivated and inspired.

All Inclusive Resorts in Canada

Yes, believe it or not – all inclusive resorts in Canada exist! While our idea of ‘all-inclusive’ is miles away from traditional buffets and water aerobics, rest assured you and your loved ones won’t have to lift a finger. We’re at the ready with helicopters and floatplanes to deliver you to remote wilderness lodges where gourmet food, wild outdoor adventures, and local wildlife await. If you want to stay on the grid this summer, you can do so knowing that we’re behind the scenes, making it all happen – whether you’re enjoying a Whistler villa vacation, strolling the cobbled streets of Montreal, or getting soaked under Niagara’s famous falls.

With ample activities to choose from, enjoy bear viewing, horseback riding, or ride an ATV.
