Top Hotels in Canada

Whether you want to stay at the hottest property in the area or are looking for somewhere with rustic charm, our handpicked selection of luxury hotels in Canada has every angle covered.

Wildlife Holidays in Canada

Over 3% of Canada is national parkland, it borders three oceans and is home to three mountain ranges, including the 3,000-mile-long Rockies. There are rainforests, woodland forests, ice plains, volcanic peaks, beaches, and unspoiled islands, all teeming with wildlife. From grizzly bears and bald eagles, whales and dolphins in British Columbia to Arctic wolves and polar bears in Manitoba, and moose, bison, and elk in Alberta, the animals you see on holiday in Canada pack a mighty punch.

Adventure Holidays in Canada

luxury holiday in Canada guarantees adventure. It is a country where thrills come in many guises. National parks present endless opportunities for outdoor excursions, both on land and water. Hike amongst bears and deer in Banff, go white-water rafting or explore the Columbia Ice Fields in Jasper, where there is also spectacular trekking through canyons.

On the west coast of Canada, fly in a helicopter over the Great Bear Rainforest to isolated walking trails and hard-to-reach fishing lakes. Spend days on a ranch, galloping through valleys, camping, and enjoying cookouts under the stars. In Vancouver, walk across the Capilano Suspension Bridge, the world’s highest, or try surfing in nearby Tofino. Further inland, Whistler brings experiences aplenty all year round. In the summer, there’s mountain biking, zip-lining and white-water rafting, while in winter it’s skiing, husky-sledding, snowshoeing and snowmobile action.

Heliskiing Holidays in Canada

For ski fanatics, there is nothing more exciting or rewarding than heliskiing, and Canada is one of the best places in the world for it. Jump out of a helicopter onto unmarked powder in the wilderness, where you’ll feel like you’re the only person in the world. You don’t need to be an expert skier to enjoy heliskiing, intermediates will love it too. Start with a few days of finding your ski legs in a resort like Whistler, the largest in North America and known for having the most regular and deepest snowfall in the world.

Once you’ve warmed up, fly to the Skeena Mountains where you can stay in a remote heliski village made up of traditional log cabins. In small groups, a guide will take you to the best terrain, to find the deepest powder and ski the most impressive glaciers. Make fresh tracks in immaculate open spaces, slalom around the trees, and see unbeatable views from the highest peaks. Finally, end your holiday in Canada with a few nights in Vancouver to relax and recuperate.

Train holidays in Canada

Canada is a huge country, which means visiting the vast expanses and many sights can seem overwhelming. One of the best ways to do so is by rail journey, and Canadian train lines cross most of the country, allowing you to embrace slow travel and take in some of the world's most spectacular scenery. A bonus is that these train journeys take you to some of Canada's most remote and beautiful places, often unreachable by car.

One of the most famous is the Rocky Mountaineer from Vancouver to Jasper, via Banff. The train ride is unbelievably picturesque, offering sightings of the area’s wildlife as well as its important Indigenous history. Passionate guides will talk you through the locations and scenes from the comfort of your seat, underneath the train cars’ glass-domed roofs. Meals on board are delicious too, particularly in the GoldLeaf service, where tables are draped in crisp white cloths and served by friendly waiters. You don’t sleep on board the Rocky Mountaineer but luxury hotels in Canada are planned along the way.

Family-friendly Holidays in Canada

Canada is ideal for family holidays and kids of all ages, with never-ending national parks and beaches to play on and cities like Vancouver to be explored by bicycle together.

Older kids and teens can really make the most of the adrenaline-pumping experiences like kayaking, zip-wires, white-water rafting, sailing, and surfing. Head to Whistler in the summer for an alpine adventure with every activity imaginable right on your doorstep, including bear watching. Go to the Rockies in Alberta for hiking, while the Calgary Stampede, a vibrant rodeo event, is a spectacle your teens won't forget.

Holidays in Canada tick all the boxes for a multi-generational getaway too. Stay on Vancouver Island to learn about the Indigenous culture, take a boat ride to spot whales, and indulge in a spot of wine tasting. Head to Ontario for great restaurants and buzzy city life in Toronto, combined with a trip to Niagara Falls. And, in the winter, there’s skiing in Whistler and Quebec, where family-friendly hotels will look after everyone.
