Tailor-made holidays to Canada
There’s more to Canada than meets the eye. From vast painterly landscapes to exciting winter adventures, multicultural capitals to thrilling rodeos, Canada is a destination that curious travellers never tire of exploring.
Road or rail travel through the Rocky Mountains to Banff and Lake Louise offers some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the world, while on the Hudson Bay coast, visitors can spot polar bears on their annual migration. Adventure travellers can kayak with killer whales off Vancouver Island, journey into the Yukon or whoop like a cowboy at the Calgary Stampede rodeo. In musical Montreal, French flair mixes with the bustle of a diverse, cutting-edge city, while on the US border, Niagara Falls plunges 20 stories as if into oblivion. And in the maritime province of Newfoundland, locals stock their freezers with the fragments of passing icebergs, travelling south from the Arctic.

What our clients say about our Canada holidays
I thought I knew Western Canada very well but your specialist was able to find some very exciting additions that added real value to our holiday. Where there was a choice of hotels we were very pleased with their locations and quality. The Wedgewood was a special favourite. Booking of unusual travel requests like seaplane flights and flights into the northern forests were accomplished in seconds. Flawless and accomplished sum up the service we received.
The trip was extremely well organised and we were well advised by Patrick Griffin. We managed to do and see everything we had planned with him. We had a very good set of information and instructions on arrival at our first destination with a well prepared series of maps of our itinerary. There were no hitches and everything progressed very smoothly. Altogether excellent, and even the weather was good.
We were delighted with our Destination Specialist, Heather, nothing was too much trouble and she was able to provide 'local' knowledge on so much. The hotels/lodges she booked for us were superb. All round Excellent! The holiday was a real joy and 'holiday of a lifetime' experience. We have a visit to Australia planned for January and I am sure this will be just as good, thank you
Good friendly service. Emma responded to any queries we had both before and during the trip very quickly. She planned a wonderful itinerary to Canada for us which includeda short stay on an island only accessible by helicopter and a trip on the world famous Rocky Mountaineer
Catherine Blackburn gave us the itinerary we enjoyed and the hotels we stayed in were very good. Our change of flight and upgrade to first class that she arranged for us on the way out at an extremely reasonable cost was a real joy!
The planned journey fully met our expectations with the time in Quebec and Montreal balanced perfectly with a stay in the woods bear watching at Sacacomie Lodge. Thanks to Patrick for his advice and organisation.
Catherine Blackburn was extremely helpful, especially when we changed requirements to incorporate a stop over, with different travel arrangements for each of the party (of two).
I feel very confident using Wexas for my travel arrangements. The regard given to detail in organising the trip is excellent.
For the money I paid, faultless. The Canadians I spoke to about my package were well-impressed too.
We were really able to relax with confidence in all the arrangements.
I gain confidence knowing I have Wexas backup should I need it.
Tim Tan's service is always excellent.

When to go to Canada
Canada is geared up to visitors at all times of the year and though winters are dark and bitterly cold, some of the world's most impressive ski resorts open their doors and the cities host a festival of winter carnivals. That said, summer is generally the most popular time to visit. The lakes and the Pacific coast sparkle with sailing boats and kayaks, hikers take to the mountains, the cities are buzzy with cyclists and bladers and much daily living takes place al fresco. In the south, summer lasts between May and September. It starts slightly later in the north, sometime in June and lasts until the first snowfall, which is sometimes as …
