Western Canada Holidays

Western Canada Holidays


Stretching from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, Western Canada is as breathtaking as it is diverse.

From snow-capped mountains to rolling hillsides, crystal clear lakes to sun-drenched vineyards, Canada’s lone desert to golden beaches, this is a region just waiting to be explored.

Catch a rodeo in Calgary, hike a wilderness trail in the Rockies or simply sip Canadian wine in the Okanagan Valley. From whale-watching excursions by zodiac and surfing off Vancouver Island’s West Coast to kicking back and relaxing on an ocean or lakeside beach or a revitalising spa, Western Canada has it all.

You’ll share your adventures with some incredible wildlife from grizzly bears fishing for salmon to orcas and humpbacks gliding through the Strait of Georgia.
