Family Canada

For the ultimate digital detox, head to Canada, a country so scenic even surly teens won’t be able to resist the call of the great outdoors. Rugged terrains, vast wildernesses, emerald lakes, snow-capped slopes and cultural flair to boot make Canada – winter or summer, adventure holiday or serene getaway – the perfect destination for a luxury family trip.

Being the second-largest country in the world, organising a luxury family holiday to Canada may seem like a daunting task. But, with the help of our heli-skiing and bear-tracking Original Travel specialists, we can tailor an itinerary to suit you perfectly. With experienced and knowledgeable local Concierges and guides who have trekked across the country from top to toe, find your perfect lunch in Montreal or catch sight of a bear in Alberta.

With the jet-lag looming and your little ones chomping at the bit, the perfect place to kick-start your luxury family holiday in Canada is British Columbia. Characterised by its exceptional variety of nature - from glittering glaciers and sublime ski slopes to its picture-perfect Pacific Coastline - the province of British Columbia is well and truly part of the great outdoors. Stay in one of Vancouver's luxurious hotels, meander through Vancouver's thriving and vibrant city centre and board a boat to Vancouver Island. Off the coastal city of Victoria, enjoy a whole host of whale-watching excursions. We guarantee that your whole brood will be left speechless as orca and minke whales surface in the harbour.

For the more adventurous types, head inland to delve into the stunning landscapes of Whistler and the Canadian Rockies. Hit the slopes (or shred some powder, as the locals say) on Whistler's world-famous ski runs and come evening, cosy up in one of our hand-picked lakeside lodges. In warmer weather, work up a sweat along the Sulphur Skyline - one of Jasper National Park's many craggy trails - or, for those with little ones in tow, spend an afternoon walking around the magnificent Maligne Lake.

Away from the West Coast, snow-shoe across Manitoba's Churchill - the Polar Bear capital of the world - or keep the heart rate down with a cultural adventure through Ottawa. With plenty of time spent travelling, shift the boredom aside with our Sharky & George packs for children - engaging and sure to wring the whinging out.
