The climate in North America is varied. The weather might be the deciding factor for you when you're choosing between a USA or Canada tour.
If you love adrenaline-fuelled snow sports and icy landscapes, Canada might be for you. Ski season tends to fall between January and March, with Whistler seeing temperature lows of around -10°C in the village and -15°C in the alpine region.
However, Canadian seasons are similar to those in Europe and the climate varies by province, with warm summers and cold winters. The likes of Alberta, for instance, can see average highs of around 31°C in July.
In terms of weather, what you can expect from a USA tour can vary depending on where and when you travel. Like Canada, the northern states share a lot of similarities with the UK and Europe. They experience four distinct seasons, with warm and cooler temperatures and snowfall in the winter.
Want to hit the surf in California? Late summer into early autumn is ideal. Between June and October, temperatures are high and the water is warm. If you decide to go to see the beautiful autumn colors in New England, October is the best time of year to see the fall leaves in all their glory.
Both the USA and Canada are vast. Navigating these countries requires different methods of transport. For example, domestic flights are often needed to get from one state or province to another, whilst cars are necessary once in the specific area.
Our USA and Canada tours are focused itineraries that allow you to go from one place to another with ease. For instance, there are train tours that offer you the opportunity to travel across the map in a luxurious setting.

There are some key points to consider before traveling in the USA and Canada on one of our tours:
You won't need a visa to visit Canada if you're a British citizen flying to Canada. However, you'll need to apply for an eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization) before you travel if you are planning to get to the country by air.
If your tour is in the USA, you may find that, as a UK citizen, you fall under the Visa Waiver Program. You will need to complete an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) at least 72 hours before travel. Exceptions do apply to the Visa Waiver Program, however. More information can be found on the UK government website.
Canada has two official languages: English and French. Quebec is the only province to have French as its official language, with around three-quarters of residents speaking the language at home, but you'll have no problem using English.
There is a plethora of experiences on offer when you plan a trip to the USA and Canada. Our tours have been designed to ensure you get the most out of each location.
If you want a beachside break, we've created itineraries that take you to the coast, where you can indulge in water activities before heading to high-end boutiques. Perhaps you long for a luxurious vacation in Miami or want to go whale-watching in Monterey Bay. No matter your vision, we can arrange an unforgettable trip that caters to your needs.
Should you love the icy chill as you hurtle down the slopes, Whistler could be for you. Or maybe you want to go on a bear hunt in Alaska? The Yukon is also a great destination for wildlife watching, with grizzly bears and caribous to spot.
