Explore Ontario:

Ontario is probably best known for the world famous Niagara Falls – a must on any Canada holiday – as well as the cosmopolitan city of Toronto, gateway for many to Canada, but there is much beyond this to explore. With six national parks, 335 provincial parks and more than 250,000 lakes, there’s always something new to discover here.

Ontario is a land of huge contrasts; its northern border is on the same parallel as Sweden and its southern, California. This diversity makes it perfect for a holiday in Canada, year round.

From city shopping breaks in Toronto to exploring Canada’s capital, Ottawa, and the parliament buildings to canoeing in Algonquin Park or viewing the autumn colours, Ontario is ideal for a tailor-made holiday to Canada.

Ontario is very easy to get to with frequent flights from most UK airports to Toronto, the major gateway, so your Canada holiday can start from an airport near home.

Why should I visit Ontario?

Ontario is a great holiday destination all year round with city breaks, canoeing and exploring the parks in the summer, taking in the glorious autumn hues in late September through to early November as well as dog sledding and snowmobiling in winter, not to mention wildlife viewing such as moose, beaver and wonderful birds throughout the year.

Visit Ottawa in the Spring to see the tulip festival, enjoy amazing urban adventures such as the EdgeWalk in Toronto or the MistRider Zipline in Niagara Falls or enjoy outdoor and wildlife viewing experiences in Northern Ontario. Explore Blue Mountain, Muskoka and Algonquin Park, or the 1000 Islands, all close to urban hubs; especially good if you avoid the weekends, year-round.


We had a splendid holiday, thank you, and the itinerary worked well for us.  We covered a fair bit of ground but never felt rushed not stressed at the next leg of the journey.  Thank you for guiding me on the itinerary and for some superb hotels – particularly the Fairmonts in Toronto, Ottawa and Quebec.
