More about Canada

Extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific, the Arctic Ocean to the north and United States to the south, Canada is as diverse as it is spectacular. Would it surprise you to know that with a landmass of 9.1 million square kilometres, Canada is the second-largest country in the world behind Russia? It's true, and equally genuine is how much fun travellers can have exploring its many highlights. From the charming cities of Quebec and Ottawa in the east, as well as iconic Niagara Falls, to the east where you'll find cosmopolitan Vancouver and the world-famous Rocky Mountains with beautiful Banff National Park.

More about United States

The world is fascinated by America's famous culture and curious celebrities, but any traveller will tell you that there's so much more to the amazing United States. Head east for renowned attractions like historic Philadelphia, the Florida Everglades, Washington DC and New York City. Through central USA you'll find famous Mount Rushmore Memorial and Badlands National Park, as well as the carnival town of New Orleans in the south. The west coast boasts other great highlights in Seattle, multicultural San Francisco, the movie mecca of Hollywood and San Diego, for a south-of-the-border vibe. This is the tiniest taste of what you can expect to discover and enjoy in the good old U.S of A!
