Best travel time for Canada?

Hi all,

for many years now we are dreaming of flying to Canada and exploring its eastern side.

What would you consider being the best time of the year to go there?

Thanks for your advice!


Canada is a vast country, and the weather can be quite different in the East and in the West.
July-August is peak tourist season right across Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver, especially from mid-July to mid-August. For the most popular attractions and locations, you may need to book 6 to 9 months in advance to be sure of availability (and for better prices, as it is always more expensive to book at the last minute).

Winter is also popular as a time to visit Canada due to the many winter sports and leading Canadian ski resorts.
Fall is an excellent time to visit Canada because the weather has cooled down but is still comfortable, the summer crowds have left, prices drop and changing fall foliage provides a beautiful backdrop for a vacation. In addition, fall celebrations, such as pumpkin, apple and wine festivals are in full swing.
Spring:  Mid-May to late June is a great time to visit Canada! There are not a lot of tourists so prices are reasonable. There are new leaves in the trees; nature is in full bloom.
