Best time for a family to go to Canada
The choice of when to go is taken out of your hands: 90 percent of family holidays run in the summer holidays.
The best time to go with your family to Canada is July and August. In fact, summer is often the only time many small group tours run. But that’s fine: you’ll get the best weather on the notorious “Rain Coast” of British Columbia (good news for sea kayaking and whale watching tours) and surprisingly warm temperatures in the heights of the Rocky Mountains. The wildlife also livens up in summer, so you can catch bears snacking on summer berries by the roadside and salmon flipping their way upstream. A word of warning: summer is also the busiest time of year in Canada, so you’ll probably need to book your holiday at least a year in advance.
