Winter Holidays in North America
A winter holiday in the USA & Canada is a truly unforgettable experience.
Some would argue that North America's attractions are at their best at this time of year with far less visitors than the summer and the national parks in particular at their pristine unspoilt best.
It's fair to say that each season has its own unique charm for every destination and there's rarely a "bad" time to visit anywhere in North America but there's no doubting winter brings some exceptional experiences.
California Winter provides a unique opportunity to discover a different side of the Golden State, from the downhill runs and après ski of Lake Tahoe and Mammoth to the balmy beaches of San Diego and Los Angeles. San Francisco is a little cooler at this time of year but offers an easy drive to the gateway of Yosemite National Park. Hailed by many as the best time to visit Yosemite, take the winter shuttle right to the valley floor and discover this magical national park at its most scenic and without the crowds.
Western USA Enjoy warm days and cool nights under the clear desert skies of Las Vegas, deep powder and buzzing après ski in the Rocky Mountains and unimaginable beauty in Utah’s famous national parks. Higher altitude destinations regularly receive snow but the roads are soon cleared allowing an easy drive, even to the national parks. Yellowstone is an amazing destination in the winter, but regular snow fall can make it challenging to visit independently. We recommend joining an escorted tour and enjoying the stunning vistas and wildlife from the comfort of a snow coach.
Eastern Canada Wrap up warm for a visit to this authentic winter wonderland and let the snowy scenery take your breath away. Visit the region’s charismatic cities where the local’s celebrate the season with a variety of festivals; skate the Rideau Canal in Ottawa during Winterlude, shop until you drop in Toronto or Montreal and delight in Quebec City’s Winter Carnival. Hit the slopes in the colourful ski resort of Tremblant and enjoy Hôtel Sacacomie’s warm welcome and exciting snow-based activities. For a truly unique experience, spend a night at the Hôtel de Glace, North America’s only ice hotel.
Western Canada Discover the snowy peaks and alpine towns of the spectacular Canadian Rockies and explore frozen canyons and icy waterfalls on guided walks. Enjoy skiing in some of the world’s finest mountain resorts including Olympic host Whistler, where you can also take a thrilling snowmobile or dogsledding trip. Further north in the Yukon, marvel at the shimmering neon colours of the dazzling Northern Lights.
