6 Points to Consider When Travelling to Canada

6 Points to Consider When Travelling to Canada

For global travelers seeking a bit of everything, Canada offers a wide range of experiences that can invigorate the mind, body and spirit.

If you’re a trip to Canada, here are six key points to help you with your research, planning and reservations.

1. Weather conditions

Weather conditions in Canada can be variable. Even in summer, there can be a need for warm clothing. This is especially true if you are planning on visiting the mountains. Layering works really well in such a climate—it makes it easy to quickly adjust your clothing according to weather conditions. In the winter, Canada is known for snow and freezing temperatures, so be sure to pack warm outerwear including a hat and gloves.

2. Vast distances

Canada is a huge country and travelling around it requires time and planning. It’s important to consider the distances between places. You may wish to choose one region and focus on it, rather than rushing from one city to another without really getting to know them. Each region offers a vast range of experiences—just plan your trip to allow sufficient time to soak in the local culture and way of life.

3. Places to stay

There are hotels and hostels available everywhere in Canada. If you’re looking for affordable accommodation, you may also want to research local private bed-and-breakfast options. They are common in Canada and provide an opportunity to stay and interact with locals at an affordable cost.

People who open their homes to offer bed-and-breakfast accommodation are generally warm and friendly, and they will often provide you with valuable information on recommended local attractions to visit.

4. Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA)

Electronic Travel Authorization is mandatory for all, except American travellers visiting Canada. It can be procured through a simple and fast online process before boarding your flight by providing a fee of $7 and some basic information about yourself. Make sure you travel with the same passport you used while applying for the ETA.

5. Travel Insurance

It is always recommended to buy travel insurance when you travel to other countries. This is especially true when travelling to Canada where the medical expenses can be very high. When choosing insurance, be sure to check if it covers all your planned activities.

Travel insurance may seem like an unnecessary additional expense, but it should be an essential part of your travel budget.

6. Wilderness vs. cities

Experiencing the Canadian wilderness is something not to be missed. There are rainforests, mountains and islands offering a wide range of adventure activities. In winter, you can try snowboarding and skiing. Canadian cities also have lots to offer—great food and a variety of cultural and social events.

Canada is a wonderful country to visit, offering a wide range of places to explore. Picturesque, tranquil, adventurous and wild—Canada has it all and more. With a little research and planning, you can get to experience Canada at its best without draining your finances.
