Best time to visit

Canada is one of those rare nations that is beautiful year-round. Visit between the winter months of December to February to experience the magic of a white Christmas and plenty of perfect skiing snow. The snow begins to melt in spring (March - May), which means nature awakens from its long slumber and the hiking trails open again. While Canada is known for its snow, June - August (summer) is one of the prettiest times to visit. The lakes gleam bright blue, the sun is shining and the festivals sell out.
