Best way to travel across canada

Niagara falls


There are countries and places that make you fall in love as soon as you arrive to them, and in my first visit to Canada that happened, I fell in love with its cities, modern like Toronto or classic like Quebec, with its natural spaces, like Niagara Falls and the Great Lakes, with its lifestyle, a mix between European and American, and I also fell in love with its people, who have built a truly multicultural country open to the World.

I was expecting the second largest country in the world, with almost 10 million square kilometers and a population density of 3 people per square kilometer, almost all living in the south of the country because of the harsh weather conditions in winter.

As a fan of trains, especially the mythical routes such as the Trans-Siberian, the Orient Express, the Train to the Clouds in Argentina, the Indian Pacific from Sydney to Perth, the toy train from Calcutta to Darjeeling, and, of course, the Canadian, from Toronto to Vancouver, as soon as I could I got on a train in Canada to make the journey between Quebec and Toronto, stopping in Montreal, a route called the Corridor.


The best time to travel to Canada depends a lot on the regions to which you are going to travel since being such a large country the regional climatic differences are very large. In general the summer months, from June to September, are considered the best time to travel to the country. In the northern areas of Canada the best months are June and August and this is a top destination mainly for outdoor enthusiasts.

In winter in Canada you can expect cold weather especially in northern and mid-state British Columbia where temperatures are quite low at this time. The thermometer quickly drops to -30°C so many outdoor attractions and activities are cancelled at this time due to heavy snowfall. However, it is the best time for winter sports such as skiing and polar bear viewing, especially in the province of Manitoba (mid-October to November). The ski season runs from November to March, in addition to skiing you can take advantage of this time to try the famous Champagne powder snow on the slopes of Canada.
