Canada cannot be summed up in a few quick tips, but never the less, that is what is about to happen. Here are some when, where, how and why tips for visiting Canada this year!

When
In a nutshell, it is stunning all year-round. However, if you are looking for the perfect Canadian experience, plan according to the activities you want to do.

• Spring is typically March to June. Springtime sees a lot of rain, but it won’t stop you having a fabulous time. If spotting 10,000-year-old glaciers floating on by and white-water rafting sounds like your idea of fun, aim for these months.

• Summer is June to September. Perfect for hiking, camping, festival season is in full swing, and the BBQs are heavenly. Also, summer is the optimal time for outdoorsy types – love canoeing, kayaking and the super Canadian portage? Then this is the time for you.

• Fall lands September to November. Not for the faint of heart, Polar Bear spotting is possible during these months. Be aware that it might require some lengthy travel and may be expensive but without a doubt worth every dime and mile. Speaking of paws and claws, how about some Spirit Bear watching? It might sound like hooey except Spirit Bears are simply a rare subspecies of black bear. They are most likely spotted in fall. Thanksgiving is taking place in October you’d be remiss not to consider booking a trip to experience a real Canadian Thanksgiving while you have the chance.

• Winter snowy and ethereal, but above all, very cold. The landscapes make for some of the most beautiful in the worlds, one that photographers shouldn’t miss. Niagara Falls is frozen, making the landmark stunning when the Winter Festival of Lights arrives too.

Where

North of Vancouver is home to one of the biggest ski resorts in North America, not only that but nestled in the Blackcomb mountains is Delta Hotels Whistler Village Suites a luxurious and perfect place to start your Canadian adventure. After that, choose a few places to visit – Canada is huge! Jasper National Park and Banff National Park are the closest… relatively speaking.

How
It is no secret that Canadian flights aren’t cheap and in fact, there are no budget airlines to speak of. Try to book well in advance and keep a little bit of flexibility. Ideally, hire a car, campervan or RV and sink your cash into gas. You’ll get to see much more, stop where you like and save on accommodation too. Bonus! As mentioned in ‘Where’, if you opt to head to Whistler, Jasper and Banff being the nearest National parks, the RV option will save you a heap of money here. They are high tourist areas and come with premium prices too. Bus and train are also an option but don’t give you the freedom your own wheels will.

Why
If all of those don’t whet your appetite for some exploration, then have a look at the image below. Breathtaking, phenomenal, maybe even once in a lifetime travel awaits you in Canada.
