INSIDER TIPS

Canada is a country filled with wonderfully friendly people, classy, diverse cities, and a diverse landscape that includes tundras, rainforest, deserts, and huge mountains.

The mountains in Canada offer great skiing and snowboarding during the winter. Banff is a popular mountain town known for its excellent trails. It’s quite busy during the winter months as locals and visitors alike hit the slopes.

 Canada is HUGE and best explored by car. It’s the best way for your customer to find themself in tiny little towns, majestic mountains, amazing countryside, and plenty of off-the-beaten-track places.
