Canada is located on the northern part of the North American continent and is a land of geographical superlatives - the second-largest country by area, it shares the longest land border with the United States, and it has the longest coastline in the world (over 202,000 kilometres!)

We love Canada for it’s breathtaking natural beauty, the friendliness of its people, its cosmopolitan cities, it’s at times slightly offbeat cuisine (poutine anyone?), and of course Whistler – one of our top ski destinations.

The country is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts with glacier-covered mountains, pristine lakes, rolling prairies and some of the best skiing in the world. However, it also has its share of vibrant cities including the very international hubs of Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.

Lightfoot Travel creates tailor-made itineraries to Canada and throughout the Americas. Our travel designers have explored the region, sampled the activities, and stayed at the properties we use. So when we make a recommendation, you can trust that it’s based on firsthand experience.
