All Canada Articles
With 10 diverse provinces and three northern territories, this country on top of the world has fascinating human culture & history and even more fascinating wilderness and wildlife. A trip through the wild and wonderful Canadian countryside might acquaint you with opportunities to:
  • Watch wildlife. As you navigate the ice fields or trek across the landscape, you could see breaching blue whales, beluga whales, snow white polar bears, seals, and a stunning variety of birds. 
  • Dive in the biodiversity of the Baffin Sea, where polar bears, narwhals, jellyfish, and other spooky underwater creatures haunt the submarine icebergs.
  • Explore the vast landscapes on ATVs. 
  • Paddle around beautiful inlets on kayaks and explore magnificent fjords of Newfoundland and Labrador via motorized dinghies. 
Cruise Beyond Canada

Many of our cruises visiting Canada visit other coutries as well.

Several Alaskan small ship cruises begin in British Colombia before cruising north to Alaska's Inner Passage. 

The Arctic Ocean has been a major international shipping route for centuries connecting the Pacific Ocean with the North Atlantic via the Northwest Passage.

Many cruises include Canada's Baffin Island with Greenland, and some cruises also include Iceland and Norway.
Getting to various destinations in Canada:
Our expeditions to Canada visit both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, travel through the glaciated Arctic tundras, and even weather the famed Northwest Passage. So how do you know where to begin your trip? We can help you figure that out, but here are some starters to help you plan... If you are traveling to –
  • Nunavut and ​Baffin Island, you will normally fly to Ottawa and transfer to your final destination on a domestic Canadian flight. 
  • British Columbia, you can either take the train from other destinations in Canada or fly directly into the Victoria International Airport.
  • Newfoundland & Labrador (Sable Island, Torngat Mountains), you can fly directly into St. John's International Airport. If you are already in Nova Scotia on another Canada tour, you can catch a ferry straight to Newfoundland to enjoy a bit more of the scenery.
  • Northwest Passage, you will either start in Greenland, Nunavut, or Ottawa, all of which have international airports.
  • St. Lawrence River, you'll start in Quebec and transfer to your boat for the start of your river cruise of this mighty waterway. 

Canada Travel FAQs

Do I need a visa to travel to Canada?
US citizens only need a valid US passport to travel to Canada. While a visa is not required for most other countries, you will need to visit https://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta.asp to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization, which costs CA$7. 

Is tipping customary in Canada?
Tipping between 15-20% on restaurant bills and giving taxi drivers and other service workers a small tip is a cultural expectation in Canada. It is a courteous way to show gratitude and helps supplement what are frequently very low wages (which is how Canada keep prices lower). We always leave the decision of how much to tip (if at all) up to the individual travelers, but it is a cultural norm in Canada.

What is the internet access like in Canada?
If you're in cities and towns, you will probably have good access to fast, wireless internet. Many of our Canada expeditions do visit some of the more remote regions of the Arctic, and in these areas and while cruising, it is possible that you will not have internet for several days while we are out of range. Otherwise, Canada's internet is reliable.

Can I use my cell phone while in Canada?
Check with your operator if you have activated mobile roaming  for Canada on your phone before leaving home. You will get good cellular coverage in cities and throughout most of southern Canada. However, since most of our itineraries venture into the depths of Canada's remote wilderness and Arctic regions, far from any cell towers, it's likely that you will not have service for some or most of your trip.

Do I need a power adapter/ converter?
Canada has 110V power with the same sockets as those in the United States. If you are traveling from another part of the world, you will need a power adapter/ converter to use the outlets.

What are the toilets like in Canada?
You will find standard flush toilets throughout most of Canada.
 
Approximately what will it cost for (in USD):
Public transportation - $1.70
Coffee - $1.28
Dinner - $15.00
Takeout food - $4.00

Can I drink the water in Canada?
Yes, you can drink tap water in Canada. Try to be environmentally friendly by re-filling your water bottle rather than buying new plastic ones.

What is the most common way of paying for things in Canada?
Canada has the Canadian Dollar, which normallly trades less than the US dollar. You will be able to pay with your credit card in almost all businesses in the major cities and tourist destinations, and ATM access is pretty easy. You should still have some cash on hand for smaller purchases.

Should I purchase travel insurance for my trip?
You should always purchase travel insurance! We have more information on one of our recommended providers here.
