  1. Peak Season

    June to August

    During the summer months in Canada (with highs of 20°C-37°C in some parts) visitors can explore the many diverse hiking trails as all national parks will be open, offering spectacular viewpoints. With increased hours of sunlight each day over the warmer months, you can revel in one of Canada’s 561 lakes. This is also the best time to experience Canada’s biggest celebration in red and white for Canada Day on July 1st. Make sure to book accommodation and flights in advance and keep in mind that prices will be significantly higher.

  2. Low Season

    November to April

    This is one of the best times to explore Canada if you are a skier or snowboarder and to enjoy a range of winter activities including snowshoeing or ice skating at the Rideau Canal in Ottawa. As the temperature drops (and the days become shorter) the number of winter festivals increases and you will find this is the best chance to experience Carnaval de Québec – Canada’s most popular winter festival. Other noteworthy festivals include the Maple Syrup Festival in Ontario or the Ottawa Tulip Festival. Visitors will need to pack warm clothes, as the temperature will drop to -30°C and is expected to only reach highs of 7°C  in some parts.
