Culture and History Vacations

From Halifax's Celtic connections, to Canada's First Nations roots, to the artsy culture of the West Coast, Canada has an abundance of culture. Whether you have a penchant for French architecture or a palette for fine foods, our experiences go beyond bus tours of the main 'hotspots', instead they encompass the hidden gems and local experiences that make up an authentic cultural adventure.
