Winter Trips in Canada

Winter in Canada is a time to cozy-up by the fire with your loved one after a day of fresh mountain air. A time where you can experience the power of a team of husky dogs as you mush your way through the snow-covered forest. A time to challenge yourself to an adventurous ice walk as your knowledgeable Canada travel guide leads the way. Or, a time to take a casual stroll through the peaceful streets of Old Quebec, as the snow lightly falls down from the night sky.
