Exhilirating Canada City Breaks

Canada is not only a country of wide open spaces. It is also a country of high powered, high density, high energy cities. Many of them are exceptionally beautiful  and well-endowed with natural spaces, cultural and historical sites and exhibitions, and architectural masterpieces.

You may want to

  • take in a particular festival or event as part of your North American holiday
  • dive deep into the Art and History of Canada in one or more cities as part of a holiday through Canada
  • combine a Canadian city break with a city break in the USA to get a sense of how the two compare (Toronto or Montréal with New York or Vancouver with Seattle are popular combinations)
  • dip into a city before or after an Atlantic cruise or an Alaska cruise
  • break a journey to the Caribbean with a city break
  • immerse yourself in one of the world's most interesting, charming and progressive cities.

Whatever your ideas about a Canada city break, why not discuss them with us? We and our network of partners will turn your ideas into reality with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of flexibility.

Exhilarating Canada City Break Options

There are numerous wonderful cities in Canada and we can arrange breaks to all of them. For some of them we have dedicated pages, but if you don't find a page here, that does not mean we cannot get you there, find you the best accommodation, recommend things to do and set you up with entry tickets where it makes sense to do so.

Working from west to east, here are some of the main cities:


The capital city of the province of British Columbia, this is a charming city on Vancouver Island, rated no. 8 of the top 20 best small cities in the world in the Condé Nast Traveller Readers' Choice Survey in 2020.


Vancouver, the gateway to British Columbia is rated one of the world's most desirable places to live. At the edge of the Pacific Ocean, between the mountains and the sea, this is an extraordinarily beautiful city, full of architectural innovation, and particularly rich in outdoor activities.


Calgary is a vibrant city at the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountain range. It is a very popular gateway to the Rockies for road trips, and rail trips and is a hub for outdoor activities, both in the summer and in the ski season. It is also the centre of Cowboy country in Canada and famed for the Calgary Stampede, a massive rodeo that happens in July every year.


The most northerly major city in Canada is Edmonton, the capital of Alberta. With 18 hours of sunlight a day in summer and average temperatures between -16° and -7° in January this is a city of extremes. It boasts world class shopping and gastronomy and great outdoor activities, specially in the summer.


The biggest city in Canada is Toronto. Situated close to the Niagara Falls, on Lake Ontario in the province of OntarioToronto is arguably one of the most modern, most diverse and most exciting cities in the world. Famed for the CN Tower which towers over it, the city offers an extraordinary range of opportunities to visitors of all sorts.


The federal capital of Canada is Ottawa. With the landmark of Parliament Hill at its heart, and being home to many national museums, Ottawa offers many urban celebrations and flavours. It also offers lots of opportunities for cycling, rafting, hiking and skiing.


Montréal, the second biggest French-speaking city in the world, sitting on an island in the mighty St Lawrence River, seems to have awards as the best for everything. It is beautiful, romantic, creative, quirky, forward-looking, diverse, vibrant and just a marvellous place to visit.

Quebec City

For the most European city in Canada, complete with the extraordinarily picturesque, walled 'Old City', which is a UNESCO Heritage site, look no further then Quebec City. Also known as a major world destination for serious foodies, the city has plenty to offer everyone.


On the east coast of Canada is the relatively small but bustling business centre of Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia. With its star shaped citadel on top of the hill overlooking the city and the coastline,  with a two and a half mile harbour-front boardwalk and an historic ferry, among other attractions, this city is all about its gateway position on the Atlantic coast.
