Best Time to Visit Canada

Canada is best visited in the summer or the winter, depending on the purpose of your trip. Unless you’re traveling to ski, the summer and fall months give sunny days and pleasant temperatures, making it the best time to head north. Despite its vast size, Canada’s weather patterns are similar across the entire country and largely mimics that of Europe. With most diverse habitats, you can expect temperate coastal regions and snowy mountain peaks, but you will generally find warm temperatures in the summer and cold temperatures in the winter.

Best time to visit

June through October should be considered the summer travel season, with weather and crowds peaking July through September. To beat the crowds, consider traveling in June or October but speak with your trusted Scott Dunn expert to ensure you have proper expectations for each season. January through March is reserved for skiing but comes with very cold temperatures.
