Why go?

From the heart-pounding spectacle of the Niagara Falls, to the beautiful city of Vancouver, from the lakes and mountains of spectacular Banff, to all things Scottish in Nova Scotia - Canada is an enormous land of contrasts and customs with plenty to entice visitors.

... a country where vast open spaces, exciting cities and nature dominate the tourism industry.

Flights to Vancouver (YVR) are hugely popular. The western metropolis is frequently voted the best city in the world in which to live, so it has a lot to offer to holidaymakers. Vancouver also acts as a gateway to the other treasures of the province of British Columbia, such as the spectacular Rocky Mountains and the ever-popular ski resort of Whistler.

Toronto is another popular choice for British visitors heading to Canada. Flights into Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) deliver travellers into the largest city in Canada. Toronto is a popular twin-centre holiday for the city and nearby Niagara Falls, on the border with the USA.

The Canadian side of the falls offer, without argument, the best views of these thunderous waterfalls (there are three that make up Niagara Falls). The city that has grown around this natural wonder boasts many hotels, restaurants, casinos and a few amusement arcades.
Also in Ontario is the airport of Ottawa (YOW), plus the magnificent Thousand Islands. Sitting in the Saint Lawrence River, some of the islands belong to Ontario, some to America's New York state, and they actually total almost 2,000 (and yes, that's where the dressing of the same name originates).

The international airport at Halifax (YHZ) in Nova Scotia is in the east of the country. Canada calls it the 'Ocean Playground' and maritime history comes alive in this province, which is connected to the mainland by just a sliver of terrain.

Heading to the eastern province of Quebec, Montreal's airports handle visitors looking for a side order of French flavour with their Canadian holiday.

In the western half of Canada the airports at Calgary (YYC) and Edmonton (YEG), both in the province of Alberta, act as gateways to the inland magnificence of Canada. Skiing and scenery are at the top of the agenda in beautiful Banff.

The Calgary Stampede is a rodeo festival held every year in July. An astonishing one million visitors enjoy the fun and frolics of the 10-day event.

The Rocky Mountains can also be enjoyed from Alberta, as the range stretches an incredible 3,000 miles from New Mexico in the United States through Canada and north to Alaska. The mountains can also be explored from the western province of British Columbia.

Getting to and from the airport

There is no shortage of options when it comes to getting to where you want to go in this great nation.

Whether you use public transport, hire a taxi, rent a car, or find another way to get to and from the airport, there will be plenty of helpful staff and locals willing to point you in the right direction if you get a little lost.

Most airports offer shuttle bus services to help get you in and out of the city or to connect with other transport options that will get you there. Shuttles also operate to car rental firms that aren't within an easy walking distance of the terminal, to help get you on your way quickly and easily.

Licensed taxis will be waiting in official ranks outside most terminals at airports in Canada to take you where you want to go. Ask if they operate a flat-rate for your chosen destination. Alternatively, make sure the meter is running.

Your hotel might operate an airport shuttle service too.

Where to stay?

From rooms with a view of Niagara Falls to boutique hotels in Vancouver's Gastown, we can help you to find the best hotels in Canada.

There is a huge variety of accommodation across the vast country. In cities such as Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto you can check into slick city pads with fantastic views. It's not all about luxury hotels though. These cities also offer budget-conscious travellers a great choice, with plenty of mid-range hotels and cheap motels, usually on the outskirts of the central areas. As with most cities, the attractions are likely to be central, so staying as close to the heart of the city as possible is ideal if you don't want to travel far to see the tourism highlights.

Ski lodges and mountain hotels also receive plenty of guests in Canada, thanks to the wild natural beauty and terrific winter sports on offer high up in the mountains.

From five-star hotels in the city and sublime alpine accommodation to everything in between, such as beach-side hotels, cowboy ranches, small-town hotels, lake-front rooms and island hideaways, TravelSupermarket is here to help you find your ideal hotel in Canada.
