About Sightseeing

Canada is the second-largest country in the world, with vast and varying terrain, diverse flora and fauna, historical and modern architecture, and a celebration of art, food, music, and traditions from cultures all over the world. With such a bounty, there is no end to the sights you can see on a Canadian tour.

Lake Minnewanka-Banff-boat cruise

Cruise the Waters

Whether you’re speeding down the river, meandering through an ocean inlet, or cruising across a mountain lake, getting out on the water provides a unique perspective of the world around you. Try out a bubble cruise, where you sip on your favorite drink, lean back, and take in the views. Or for an even more luxurious experience, a dinner cruise provides fine dining at sunset.

Sunshine Coast BC Harbour Air Seaplanes

Take to the Skies

Get a bird’s eye view of the world you’re used to seeing from the ground up. Heli tours, trams and gondolas, hot air balloons, and small airplanes all offer flightseeing opportunities that you’ll never forget. The relaxing and soothing glide of a gondola provides a meditative moment, while climbing into a chopper or biplane will have you feeling like a rockstar before you even leave the ground.
