Flights to Canada
What can I do in Canada?
If you’re starting on the east coast, visit Canada’s historic Montreal and Quebec City. Then stopover in cosmopolitan Toronto, or fly to Vancouver in the west, which rises up between the Salish Sea and the Coast Mountains providing jaw-dropping scenery wherever you look.
For a wilder side, why not explore the Rockies to the west of the country or the Laurentian Mountains in the east, or strike out to Banff National Park in the Alberta province, where you see magical Lake Louise. As an added bonus, booking outdoor trips is still very affordable for Australian travellers.
