Tempted by Toronto, headed for Halifax or choosing Calgary? Plan your trip to Canada

Last updated Nov 15, 2023

It's no surprise that for many people Canada is top of the travel wish list. Whether it's vibrant cities or awesome landscapes, few do it better than this place - and we're not just saying that because we've got flights there throughout 2023!

You can fly direct to Toronto and Halifax and experience the best of everything in the east of the country - from Niagara Falls to the CN Tower and Distillery District - or you can go west to Calgary for the Canadian Rockies, The Stampede and Lake Louise.

Here's our round-up and you can make your mind up for yourself.

Fly to Toronto for...

πŸ™οΈ The view from the CN Tower. Hop in the famous glass elevator (no, not the one from the book) and take a ride to the top of the city's star attraction for the best view of the city. And if you have enough courage then you can try the EdgeWalk, the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk - just 116 storeys and a safety harness between you and the streets of Toronto.

🌊 Niagara Falls. So far as day trips go they don't come much bigger and better than this. Head to Niagara Falls and see this natural wonder in full-flow - just remember to take a poncho!

πŸ’ Ice Hockey. Get your skates on and head down to the Scotiabank Arena - home to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Ice hockey is the sport of choice in these parts, and the Maple Leafs are their team. Good puck finding a more authentic Canadian sports experience.

⛱️ Brilliant beaches. Lake Ontario is one of the largest of its kind in the world, and it's home to some fantastic beaches - perfect if you're after a spot of relaxation. Woodbine Beach, also known as The Beaches, is well worth a visit.

🍺 The world famous Distillery District. One one of the best things to do in Toronto - there's no pint in us trying to convince you otherwise. With cafes, restaurants, shops and other attractions all found within this historic setting - say cheers to a great day out.

Fly to Calgary for...

⛰️ The Canadian Rockies. If you don't go and see these when you're in Calgary then you're not doing it right. The city's known as the 'gateway' to this majestic mountain range so go trekking, see some wildlife, or hop on a bike and tick this off your bucket list.

🀠 The Stampede. A legendary event that some even refer to as 'the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.' With the world's top rodeo, chuckwagon races, live music and plenty of thrills - this is the ultimate western experience. Go in July to see with your own eyes!

🏘️ Heritage Park Historical Village. Get your culture fix by immersing yourself in Calgary's history. With more than 180 exhibits and 55,000 artefacts, you'll experience what life was like generations ago - and add a bit of flavour with a treat at the old fashioned ice cream parlour.

🏞️ Lake Louise. If you're on Instagram you're likely familiar with this place, possibly without even knowing it. The turquoise waters and awesome landscape make this one of the most photographed (or Instagrammable) spots in Alberta. Make the most of your trip to Calgary with a visit to this beauty.

✈️ Connections to Vancouver, and easy access to one of the planet's top rated cities. Here you'll find the best of nature, nightlife, culture and history. Combine Calgary with Vancouver and you've got the trip of a lifetime.

Fly to Halifax for...

πŸ™Œ Iconic lighthouses. At more than 100 years old and on the edge of the Atlantic Peggy's Cove is one of North America's most famous lighthouses. The sunrise and sunset here is a sight to behold.

🏝️ Island hopping. Take a boat ride to the Georges Island National Historic Site for guided tours and tunnel walks, or venture to McNabs Island - one of the largest islands in the harbour - for hiking trails and gorgeous beaches.

πŸ›Ά Adrenaline-fuelled river tours. Take a rafting tour on the Scubenacadie River. With waves of up to 13-feet high it's an experience you won't forget in a hurry. Kayaking tours are also not to be missed if you're looking for an afternoon of adventure.

🍁 The Halifax Citadel National Historic Site. Overlooking Downtown Halifax, this hilltop fort is the place to enjoy amazing views of Halifax Harbour while learning all about the city's military history. Listen out for the 'noon gun' - a canon firing at midday each day. Sound familiar?

🍻 How about a night out on Argyle Street, Halifax style? This area is packed with bars, pubs, restaurants, bistros and beer gardens during the summer months, and is a great place to kick back after a day seeing the sights.
