Travel Canada’s original wilderness highways and discover New World settlements, frontier trails and the modern excitement of lively, multi-cultural cities.
You’ll be awed by the natural wonder of surging rivers, the expansive rocky domain of the Canadian Shield and the breath-taking power of Niagara Falls. Get ready for your call to the wild while whale watching in Quebec (optional) and walking Ontario’s northern trails. Feel history come alive on the King’s Highway and in North America’s only fortified city and be romanced by canal-lined cities, cobbled streets and the honeymoon capital of the world – Niagara Falls.


Arrive at Pearson International Airport, Toronto. Individual transfer to your centrally-located hotel. We can arrange private transfers but due strict airport controls on waiting the vehicle cannot approach the terminal until you are waiting outside and for this reason our advice is to take a taxi from the regulated taxi dispatch at the terminal. After checking in with your tour director at the hotel, the remainder of the day is free. If you would prefer to arrive a day earlier allowing you time to acclimatise and enjoy Toronto, we can easily arrange this for you. Overnight in Toronto.

Nova Scotia Cabot Trail

We had a fantastic holiday in Nova Scotia. It was even better than we had expected. The weather was great, only one drizzly day & some very heavy rain one night when we were at Truro.
