It is customary to tip in both America and Canada. You are required to tip restaurant staff approximately 15-20% in America and 10-15% in Canada. Additionally, tips are necessary for hotel staff, bartenders, taxi drivers, tour escourts and door attendants.

America is a big country with big climate variations so make sure you’re prepared. The summer months are generally warm to hot and the winter can be very cold.

Canada’s climate varies tremendously. July and August are relatively warm, making these the busiest months to visit. December to February are the winter months where there are subzero temperatures throughout the country. The Canadian towns are geared to challenge the cold surroundings, with covered walkways and indoor malls protecting you from the outdoor elements.

It is very important to obtain your visa and make payments through official government websites. This requirement applies to passengers flying to the United States and Canada either as a destination stop-over or as a via/transit point. We strongly recommend that you purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy when you book your holiday. NOTE: Whilst we take every care to ensure that the information in this brochure is correct at time of printing, we urge you to check details of your selected holiday with your travel consultant prior to booking. You should inquire about local issues and conditions at destinations prior to travel. Qantas Holidays makes no representations as to the safety, conditions or other issues that may exist at any destination. Travel advice can be obtained from various sources including local governments, local consular offices and the website of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade: www.smartraveller.gov.au

The Canadian currency is the Canadian dollar. Coins come as 5c (nickel), 10c (dime), 25c (quarter), $1 (loonie) and $2 (toonie). There are notes of $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100. Mesa Arch, Canyonlands National Park

78 PLANNING YOUR HOLIDAY

Canada

Herbert Lake, Alberta

This expansive country has a rich, natural beauty that’s admired by visitors from everywhere. Its varied landscape lends itself to remarkable outdoor experiences. People flock to Canada to ski the top-notch slopes, trek the stunning coastal trails, hike spectacular glaciers and view the stunning lakes. The extraordinary wildlife is also a big drawcard – this is the home of polar bears, grizzly bears, moose and whales. Beyond nature and outdoor activities, Canada has a lot to offer with its vibrant cities.

Getting your bearings Western Canada is made up of British Columbia and the Prairie provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Eastern Canada refers to Central and Atlantic Canada, and within these regions are provinces with their own capital, climate, culture, heritage and natural wonders. Canada is as diverse as it is large (a whopping 10 million square kilometres) and you will love every minute of it.

The West Province of British Columbia While you will be moved beyond measure by the sheer enormity of the towering mountains, dense forests and kilometres of stunning coastline, it’s often the smaller details that make a trip to British Columbia (BC as it’s locally known) most magical. Catch a ferry across a glassy inlet to a quirky island community, where freshly caught seafood beats any renowned restaurant, or see wild elk meander along a main street. BC is much more than Canada’s most scenic province. Vancouver A welcoming and vibrant harbourside city, Vancouver is nestled at the base of the Coast Mountain Range and is spectacularly beautiful. You will love its fantastic shopping, dining, art and museums just as much as the gorgeous scenery.

Victoria On the southern tip of Vancouver Island and surrounded by dazzling ocean and mountain views, dense forests, lush parkland, and magnificent stretches of coastline, it is home to the perfectly groomed 55 acre Butchart Gardens. Whistler Known the world over for its scenery and wild nightlife, Whistler is an unforgettable holiday destination. Just 110 kilometres north-west of Vancouver, it offers adventure and luxury for all tastes and budgets.

Province of Alberta Alberta is so beautiful you will never want to leave. From the cloud-poking mountains of the Canadian Rockies to tranquil glacier-fed lakes and wildflower strewn meadows, it’s a breathtaking and natural haven – bears, moose and big-horned sheep all share the backcountry with skiers, mountain bikers and hikers. Banff National Park Canada’s first national park, Banff is without doubt one of the most beautiful in the world. You will revel in its snow-capped peaks, massive glaciers, wild rivers and turquoise lakes. The alpine village of Banff is a wonderful base for exploring the park. In summer take a dip in the Bow River – it’s exhilarating.

Jasper National Park If you visit just one lake during your Canadian odyssey make it Jasper’s Maligne Lake. The water is unbelievably beautiful and surrounded by a breathtaking mountain amphitheatre. Jasper is connected to Banff via the 230 kilometre Icefields Parkway and takes in the Athabasca Glacier on which, if the weather’s right, you can take a wander. Calgary Nestled at the base of the spectacular Canadian Rockies, Calgary is proud of its cattle ranching roots, which are celebrated at the annual Calgary Stampede. A commercial and business hub combined with fine arts, dining and a club scene, a visit to Calgary is the most fun you can have with your boots on! Edmonton Home to the largest mall in North America, complete with an indoor water park and themed shopping districts, Edmonton is also the provincial capital of Alberta and has a thriving cultural scene. A 45 minute drive from picturesque Elk Island National Park, it’s a great base for wilderness adventures.

Ottawa The capital of Canada, Ottawa’s appeal lies in its cultural diversity and its vast assortment of state-ofthe-art museums. Visit the ultra modern Museum of Civilisation or the Gothic arches of the Museum of Nature. A food and wine scene is central to the city’s identity as are its winter activities – the city’s Rideau Canal turns into the world’s largest skating rink and the Winterlude festival’s impressive icesculpted village gets everyone outdoors. Toronto The provincial capital of Ontario, Toronto is the country’s largest city and the gateway to the famous Niagara Falls. Toronto is a literary, artistic and musical town. The annual Toronto Film Festival is not to be missed nor is an ice hockey game or two. For nature lovers, nearby Algonquin Provincial Park is home to wildlife and more than 1,000 lakes.

Quebec City - Windsor (The Corridor)

Jasper - Prince Rupert (Skeena)

Vancouver - Toronto (The Canadian)

From historic sites to modern city skylines, The Quebec City-Windsor corridor connects the modern attractions of Canada’s urban landscape. The Corridor train is typically used for intercity trips, offering a relaxing journey from station to station. Corridor trains include WiFi and unrestricted mobile phone use, spacious seats with individual power outlets, onboard light meals, snack and bar service.

Plunging deep into British Columbia’s wild side, the Skeena takes you on a 1,160 kilometre journey past the highest peaks of the Rockies and touches the Pacific coast. It passes waterfalls, rivers, lakes and untamed wilderness teeming with wildlife, as well as frontier settlements and the totem poles of the west’s First Nations.

The Canadian takes you between Vancouver and Toronto, with stops in Jasper, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg and others. The western stops provide access to activities and sightseeing in Canada’s spectacular Rocky Mountains and its vast and friendly Prairies, while the eastern portion between Winnipeg and Sudbury takes you through rugged lake country.
