How to plan a trip to Canada?

When you have a reason to travel to a destination, the process is much more exciting. So if you want to know how to plan a trip to Canada to see its beautiful landscapes, cities, taste its spectacular cuisine, enjoy all its lakes, study or work, then you can learn the best tips to plan this great trip to Canada.

Once you apply for the eTA ''Electronic Travel Authorization'' you can stay up to 6 months, you can apply online, it is valid 5 years from the date it is taken out and you can travel as many times as you want during this time. 

Keep in mind that the requirements are different for each country, so it is necessary to advise you depending on your nationality. 

Best options for travel to Canada

Traveling to Canada is really expensive, but if you find the best options or savings plans to budget your trip will be much easier. 

In Canada you can be sure to travel safely, as it is a safe country and the people are very friendly. The only alarming thing is the Bears, you can find several of them in the rocky mountains, but if you keep calm, there is nothing to worry about. 

Although it may seem like a distant destination, it is actually about 8 hours away depending on where you come from. If you are at the airport in Spain, remember to present the eTA and a transport reservation to leave Canada.

The best time to travel to Canada is clearly in the summer, (July and August) however, keep in mind that there are many tourists and it is more complicated to visit the most popular places in the country. So if you want to travel in a season with good weather and few tourists, we recommend you to do it in spring (April and June) or in autumn (September and October).

And in case you didn't know, Canada is the second largest country in the world, therefore, the possibility of visiting different places is very wide, but we recommend you to study very well each area you are going to visit and create an itinerary to go through them, such as the East Coast (Toronto, Montreal and Quebec) or the West Coast (Vancouver, Calgary and the natural parks of the Rocky Mountains).
