All aboard: Destination Canada is opening up our horizons by rail and road from coast to coast to coast for jaw-dropping views and awe-inspiring encounters around every corner of Canada. We’re going on a road-tripping and cross-country rail adventure in Canada via inspiring videos, exclusive content and marketing tools. Plus there’s incentives and famils so you can experience it all firsthand. Next destination? Canada!
Canada is an enormous country – think 10 provinces and three territories in total – each with its own special drawcards and unique natural attributes.
There’s a lot to know about the world’s second-largest country so Karryon is teaming up with the experts on all things Canada – Destination Canada – for a curated content series on how to travel around Canada by road or rail and what you can experience along the way.
Meet the locals
We all know one of the best parts of travelling is the people you meet. And nobody knows their area inside and out like a local.
Canada’s got a bunch of characters who are keen to meet Aussies and share the hidden gems and highlights of their regions. Plus, Canadians are famous for being friendly and welcoming – just like us!
Through our engaging series of bite-size videos, you’ll get to know a range of Canucks (that’s Canadians to you!) and what makes their neck of the world super-special to visit. It’s an armchair travel experience for an authentic sense of what makes travelling in Canada great – straight from the people who live there.
Plan a road-trip odyssey
With wide, open spaces, epic scenery and unique wildlife, Canada is best explored and experienced on the road. Destination Canada makes it wheely easy to see all the sights with an exclusive range of interactive road-trip itineraries.
Want to go from the rainforest to the Rockies in British Columbia? Need a turquoise lake fix with stopovers between Jasper and Banff national parks? Keen to drive the Icefields Parkway in Alberta or check out the iconic Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia?
DC will steer you in the right direction with easy-to-follow itineraries complete with interactive maps, activities and more.
Take an epic rail journey
If you’d prefer someone else to take the wheel, Canada has a range of rail journeys to crisscross the country in comfort whether you’re keen to take the scenic route or want to fast-track your travel between cities.
From the world-famous luxury Rocky Mountaineer to VIA Rail’s expansive network of scenic and intercity services, Destination Canada has the know-how to connect you to the ideal rail journey experience.
Be inspired by bookable content specially curated by Destination Canada for cross-country rail travel.
Discover Canada’s destination highlights
While Canada’s justifiably known as a winter hotspot (it’s not called the Great White North for no reason), it’s really an all-year destination with different experiences across all regions and seasons.
For instance, Canada is one of the top locations to see the Northern Lights and with the natural phenomenon currently in its ‘solar max’ phase, it’s good to know that the optimal viewing time is autumn and winter.
Want to know where to sample the world’s best lobster? See polar bears and puffins? Watch the iceberg highway? Or visit Europe in Canada? Our rich content series has all the answers to inspire travel to Canada with your clients. Disclaimer: It will trigger your own wanderlust, so be warned!
