Canada Is Turning 150, so Celebrate with a Vacation!

While Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday July 1, let it be a reminder of all the great adventures you have waiting up north. Whether it’s the spectacular Rocky Mountains, mighty glaciers or vast wilderness, Vacation Quest has plenty of travel options for you to join the festivities.

Banff, Alberta

Banff Rocky Mountain Resort.

The highway from Jasper to Banff National Park is one of the most scenic drives in the Western hemisphere and beyond. A true geographical wonder, the trek leads you past the barren yet beautiful Columbia Icefields, Lake Louise’s piercing blue reflections and Mount Rundle’s sleek slopes. Once you reach one of our Banff resorts, you won’t want to leave.

Ottawa, Ontario

Ontario is huge – larger than both France and Spain combined – and contains a multitude of terrains as a result. But if you’re traveling with Global Discovery Vacations, you will most likely be spending time around the fertile lowlands around Canada’s capital, Ottawa, and Toronto.

This area is brimming with lakes – 250,000 of them – and luscious green landscapes. When you hear the phrase “great outdoors,” Ontario is what comes to mind. Plus, you can visit the uniquely named Calabogie Lodge Resort, while you’re there!

7-Day Canada/New England Military Cruise

(Sails 9/30/17-10/7/17)

Join us along with country singer Rusty Rierson and our military and veteran friends on our second annual Military Appreciation Cruise! We had a blast last year, so we’re making this a yearly event with this Canada and New England Princess Cruise. We’ll be passing through Boston, New Brunswick, Halifax and more, seeing the most historic and scenic spots along the way. For full trip details, check the Canada and New England Princess Cruise listing on our website!
