The Best Canada Family Vacations

Canada is the world’s second largest country in terms of land mass, and is home to a diverse natural breathtaking landscapes. From the snow covered mountains in the West, expansive Canadian prairies, to the thunderous ocean tides in the East. Canada offers inspiring locations to visit and explore which create amazing Canadian road trips opportunities.

Canada Family Vacations allow you to explore the diverse landscapes, historic sites, natural wilderness and explore how each location is uniquely different in Summer and Winter with the whole family. The natural beauty of the Canadian Rockies is so unique and different than the sandy beaches of Eastern Canada.

Discovering new and exciting places within our own backyard and exploring the scenic and majestic wonders that this amazing country offers. I wear the Maple Leaf on my clothing and love the colour RED, and will tell anyone that I am proud to be Canadian which is why I thought it was important to start teaching my daughter while she is young about the great country she was born into and allow her to experience the The Best Canada Family Travel Ideas.

Canadian Vacations for Families

Canada is a great place with amazing family adventure travel opportunities, so I wanted to start exploring while my daughter was young. My daughter's first ever flight was to Vancouver when she was only 4 months old, and was a memorable first family vacation. We repeated out trip to Vancouver with my son for his first flight when he was 6 months old. Both my kids have also already visited Quebec, and my son has been to New Brunswick as well!

I believe its important to teach children about Canadian Geography and Canada's Regions and engage in educational activities. While we love the West Coast as it holds many memories for us as a family as it was our first family vacation, it was also our first travel experience as a couple over 15 years ago when we had only been dating 6 months. We love to explore other parts of Canada but also love to explore our home province of Ontario and discover the best family travel in Ontario. Whether you enjoy outdoor activities, national parks, or indoor family-friendly activities, every province of Canada has unique experiences to offer.

  1. We live in Victoria BC and are surrounded by beaches, so we’ll be going on lots of day trips to some of the beaches around us! Have a great summer!

  2. Getting dehydrated is no fun on a vacation! It makes me cranky & gives me a horrible headache. Sounds like you’re set!

  3. We visited Canada when I was little and it inspired me to learn French. I met a little girl at the hotel pool who only spoke English. We played together just fine, but I wanted to be able to communicate better.
    Enjoy your summer and stay cool!

  4. That beach is gorgeous! I’ve never been to Canada, but I’m glad there’s so many things to do there, especially with kids – I’ll have to visit one day πŸ™‚

  5. There are so many beautiful places to visit in Ontario – we quite often will travel up there from MB to camp! So many more places we need to see though within the province πŸ™‚

  6. Never been to Canada’s Wonderland Splash Works either! Hope to get a chance to try out the fun there someday soon. πŸ™‚ For the most part, Jay and I are planning to spend a lot of time at the Toronto Islands this year. Its just so pretty to be, and truly great for day-staycations. Love those BRITA water bottles! Definitely could have used one of those two Saturdays ago, on our most recent trip to the islands.

  7. Sounds like you have a great summer planned! Those look like some lovely places to visit. Now I wanna go tubing. πŸ™‚ Unfortunately for us, a few things are out this summer because I’m pregnant… no white water rafting or anything like that! πŸ™‚ I still want to get out to enjoy other things before baby comes though. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

    1. I was excited to be able to do some waterslides this summer, I was sitting on the slide lines last summer when I was pregnant with Baby Roo
