To celebrate Canada Day on 1st July, our Grand American Adventures team have got together to share some of our favourite Canadian places, faces and exports!
The Canadian Rockies region is one of the most stunning places on the planet. Full of jagged peaks and colorful lakes, wildflowers and glaciers, it is an area that never fails to awe and inspire my passengers. I have often been asked what my favorite photo spot is on our Western Canada tours and that is really hard to answer.
The Polar Bear is perhaps one of the most fascinating of the bear species, only to be found in the far Northern hemisphere. Grand American Adventures’ Product Manager Iain Shiels lived out a boyhood dream of sighting these amazing creatures in their natural habit – a breathtaking experience.
Who says holidays need to happen in the summer? Plenty of destinations really come into their own in the winter months, providing a host of interesting things to see, do and experience. Where better to embrace all that the winter season has to offer than Canada? The country is known for its amazing winter, with snowfall and fantastic landscapes making it the place to go late in the year.
It’s well known that the Canadian Rockies is a pretty picture-perfect place, but I don’t think I was quite prepared for the incredible beauty which awaited me on my recent visit to the region.
The Northern Lights are one of nature's greatest displays. Dancing hues of green, purple and pink transform the sky into a spectacular light show - but one that is typically only visible in certain parts of the world, and at certain times of year. The autumn and winter months in North America provide particularly picturesque displays; here are our favourite places to see nature's greatest light show.
There is no greater experience than getting out into the national parks of North America and seeing some of the world’s most incredible wildlife. The array of different species from one state to the next is phenomenal, but it is the ‘big 3’ that every intrepid traveller is just dying to spot, and capture on camera; wolves, bears and whales! This year we have some amazing wildlife tours that will give you a greater opportunity of spotting these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat.
