Canada your way

Treat yourself to the highlights of Canada at a leisurely pace. For 28 days enjoy the intimacy of an escorted small group tour while surrounded by the beauty of this spectacular country.

Interlude tours introduced small group touring more than 25 years ago and is proud of its high number of repeat clients which confirms its success in providing personalised, safe and great value holidays.

With flights to Vancouver departing Sydney, Interlude’s 28-day escorted tour includes travel by Ferry, Rocky Mountaineer, Via Rail, Coach and all Air from Vancouver to Nova Scotia for only $14,850. Your stay in some of Canada’s iconic hotels will give you a real feel for the friendliness of this country. Highlights include Butchart Gardens in Victoria, Whistler, Canadian Rockies, Banff, Montreal & Quebec City, Toronto, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia.

Starting in Vancouver, the tour takes in Victoria and Butchart Gardens then it’s all aboard the Rocky Mountaineer to Whistler, Quesnel and Jasper. Next jump on a coach to the scenic Icefields Parkway and a stay at the magnificent Banff Springs Hotel.

Vive la France is the call as the tour moves on to the French Canadian hubs of Montreal and the historic Chateau Frontenac in Québec City. Then a switch of pace on VIA Rail to New Brunswick to begin the fascinating nine-day experience in the lesser travelled Maritime Provinces of Canada. Take time to enjoy Prince Edward Island, the 17km Confederation Bridge, the home of Anne of Green Gables and historic Charlottetown, the birthplace of Confederation.

The first stop after a ferry ride to Nova Scotia is a visit Alexander Graham Bell’s Museum. Then you can experience 18th century sights and sounds in the National Historic Louisbourg Fortress, drive the famous Cabot Trail and relax overnight at the majestic Keltic Lodge.

Local lobster is the dish of the day at Tatamagouche before the next leg of the tour – Halifax, where the word ’maritime’ is a religion and best experienced in the fascinating Maritime Museum with a focus on the Titanic disaster.

Get a feel for life at sea with a visit to the charming old world town Lunenburg, home of Bluenose 11 and the famous red-and-white lighthouse perched on a rocky outcrop at Peggy’s Cove.

Before the flight home a stop in Toronto will give you a taste of the Eastern Seaboard.

And if heading home feels like too much of a chore then there is an optional add-on; five nights in New York City!
