Holidays to Western Canada

Western Canada is known for its amazing and diverse beauty. Holidays to Western Canada will take you through endless prairie farmlands, majestic mountains and shimmering ocean waters. You can whale-watch, snow ski and swim in a lake all in the same day. Spread across six time zones and bordering the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean, Canada is the second largest country in the world.

The Western part of Canada lies along the Pacific Ocean and is where the province of British Columbia rests. This is a prime area for sea fishing and whale watching along with snow skiing, heli-skiing and hiking. It is also home to many world-renowned vineyards. Cosmopolitan cities such as Victoria and Vancouver are also popular tourist destinations for their natural beauty and relaxing environment. With the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Canadian Rockies to the east, holidays to Western Canada will provide visitors with an exceptional number of activities.

To the west of British Columbia travellers will find Alberta, home to the Rocky Mountain Range. This province emanates beauty with is rolling foothills, prehistoric hoodoos, and links to a world of dinosaurs through the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. There are many quaint towns to visit as well during your holidays to Western Canada. The world-class beauty of Jasper, Banff, Canmore, and Lake Louise should be experienced as you make your way into the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Vast natural playgrounds such as Kananaskis offer endless biking trails, fresh water fishing opportunities, skiing, hiking and camping. For a real one-of-a-kind experience, check out the Calgary Stampede that takes place at the beginning of each July.

If your holidays to Western Canada include the province of Manitoba, it will be a great opportunity for some much-earned relaxation. Located geographically in the heart of Canada, it is renowned for its quaint villages, dramatic landscape and unique polar bear experiences. It also hosts some of the country’s most impressive beaches. Winnipeg, the province’s capital, is home to the Manitoba Museum as well as the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.

Saskatchewan is a very laid back province full of friendly people and beautiful scenery. It is where visitors can really spend time with Mother Nature participating in world-class fishing, kayaking, boating, canoeing, hiking, biking, horseback riding or wildlife watching.

Climate

Due to the vastness and topographical differences of Western Canada there really is no bad time to visit, although the climate can change quite dramatically from one province to the next. The mid-provinces see much drier and hotter summer days, with temperatures reaching the high 20s and even the mid 30s C. The coastline provinces will experience normal rainfall, with pleasant days and evenings cooled by the ocean breeze. During the winter months of November to March, cold sunny days bring out the best for those who enjoy skiing. Average daytime temperatures for the winter will generally remain just below freezing.

Currency

The currency of Western Canada, as well as the rest of Canada, is the Canadian Dollar.
