The second-largest country by area sports 1186 airports and 21 major airlines that offer a variety of flight packages with substantial discounts for flights to Canada. Many of the national and domestic airlines of Canada (Air Canada, WestJet) and the United States (Delta, United, Southwest) offer miles bonuses, online booking/check-in along with car rentals and hotel accommodations. Booking your flight several weeks in advance to your favorite Canadian destination will save you a bundle, but don't forget your visa. Getting to remote areas can sometimes be a little tricky and it's best to decide in advance what type of transportation you'll need to complete the final leg of your journey. Public transportation options vary in Canada—you have your choice of car rentals, buses, subways, urban or commuter train, and of course affordable flights to Canada.
Winters are cold but fun-packed with an abundance of winter festival activities. Skiing, snowmobiling, and dog sledding are going full tilt clear through April. Summer is warm and the humidity increases in the eastern part of Canada while the western provinces remain quite comfortable. Fall brings cooler temperatures with beautiful fall foliage that is an absolute delight for any visitor. Canada's diverse weather patterns make it a playground for outdoor lovers who enjoy fishing, boating, and hiking. It is a paradise for any wintry people fresh off their flights to Canada.
Getting Around Canada
Air Canada and WestJet offer scheduled Canada flights to major cities. Local airlines often can help you complete the final leg of your vacation to smaller towns or remote areas. Other public transportation options are rail, rental car, bus, or even cruise ships. Tourists and local residents are raving fans of the Rocky Mountaineer train trips. They offer vacation packages that explore Canadian cities, the Canadian Rockies, Vancouver Island, Calgary, Vancouver, and other scenic areas. Canadians in the know say camper vans are the way to travel soon after flights to Canada, allowing you to travel at your own pace, save money, and take scenic routes not included in bus, train tours, or cruises.
