Canada’s awe-inspiring scenery, wildlife and immersive experiences are sure to boost your clients’ spirits.
There’s nothing like exploring the great outdoors to help invigorate the human spirit, so recommend holidaymakers head to Canada where they can discover spectacular landscapes, fascinating wildlife and immersive experiences.
The destination is home to some of the world’s most majestic scenery with a vastness and beauty sure to take your client’s breath away.
Awe-inspiring natural sights and experiences await your clients wherever they choose to travel in Canada – from the rugged Atlantic beauty of Newfoundland to the towering Rocky Mountains and the islands of British Columbia, with plenty to explore across the rest of the world’s second largest nation.
Many of the most life-affirming activities are featured among the 200 Canadian Signature Experiences too.
BACK TO NATURE
Visitors can get back to nature and feel the spiritual benefits at a host of national parks in Canada – and not just at the big names like Jasper and Banff in Alberta.
The coastal provinces offer clients many uplifting experiences, such as hiking or cycling along the rolling hills and rugged coastline of Nova Scotia’s historic Cabot Trail (included among Canadian Signature Experiences), while there are a host of eco-adventures available in Newfoundland and Labrador including spectacular national parks and cruises to see awe-inspiring icebergs.
Visitors to Quebec can get close to nature by taking a kayak trip deep into the fjord of the Saguenay with its steep cliffs and chance to spot distinctive white beluga whales.
Even when your clients are visiting Canada’s metropolis of Toronto, they are just a three-hour drive from the wilderness and forests of Algonquin Provincial Park, where hiking, boating and dogsledding keep visitors busy.
GREAT CANADIAN WILDLIFE
Of course, one of Canada’s biggest draws is the wildlife – several Canadian Signature Experiences give tourists the chance to see grizzlies and even rare spirit bears in British Columbia.
Another majestic experience is viewing iconic polar bears around Churchill in northern Manitoba, while whale-watching in the Bay of Fundy on the east coast is another must-do activity. That’s not to mention plenty of other fabulous creatures roaming around Canada’s vast wilderness – bison, moose, elk, caribou, wolves and more.
Close-up wildlife experiences are one of the joys of a Canadian holiday and they are sure to feature at the top of your clients’ wish-lists when deciding on the best itinerary. They also feature among the Canadian Signature Experiences.
The human spirit can be raised by staying at unique accommodation and this is another area where Canada can offer some very special options that clients will never forget.
During winter, holidaymakers can stay in one of the suites at North America’s only ice hotel. Quebec’s Hotel de Glace, made of ice and snow, opens for a new season in January 2020 with a great hall, chapel, ice slide and ice bar among its icy facilities.
A more remote option is staying in a heated tent at the Torngat Mountains Base Camp and Research Station in northern Labrador, gateway to a spectacular wilderness national park and home to the Inuit indigenous people. Equally off-the-beaten- track is Arctic Watch Lodge 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle in Nunavut ideal to see the Northern Lights and commune with nature.
Then there are idyllic lodges on Canada’s multitude of picture postcard lakes, while Parks Canada offers its own unique type of accommodation known as oTENTiks, a cross between a cabin and a prospector’s tent. Glamping is also widely available in many of Canada’s most scenic locations.
Getting out into rural Canada gives holidaymakers the chance to enjoy immersive experiences involving the country’s indigenous people (known as First Nations). Those staying at Shakat Tun Wilderness Camp in Yukon are hosted by a family from the Champagne and Ashihik First Nations, and can take part in a range of traditional cultural activities.
Wherever your clients chose to travel in Canada, they are sure to enjoy the kind of experiences and hospitality that will reinvigorate their human spirit and leave them with memories of a lifetime.
