Canada in the winter maybe cold but it is still stunningly beautiful and well worth a visit. The country is well prepared to pull on some boots, wrap up warm and carry on.

Day 1 Toronto
Landing in Toronto, take your included schedule transfer to your chosen hotel. Spend the rest of the day at leisure exploring the city. We recommend that you use the PATH system, where 30 kilometres of underground pedestrian walkways allow you to get around the downtown core safe from the cold and snow. This PATH system connects hundreds of hotels, shops, restaurants and much much more.
Day 2 Toronto
Spend today making full use of your Toronto city pass, which provides entrance to five of Toronto’s top attractions including the CN Tower, where you will be treated to fantastic views across Lake Ontario and the city, and Ripleys Aquarium.
Day 3 Toronto
With plenty of sightseeing under your belt, make sure you leave some time for a bit of retail therapy. During the colder months there are always plenty of promotions and sales, so grab yourself a bargain. The Eaton centre is the largest mall with over 250 shops and restaurants but there are plenty of cool neighbourhoods with a wide variety of shops from record stores to jewellery that are also worth a wander. This evening why not head to the Air Canada centre and join thousands of crazy fans cheering on the Toronto Maple leafs Ice hockey team, the sport is almost a religion in Canada.
Day 4 Toronto – Niagara Falls
After the bright lights of the big city it is time for a gentler pace as you make the journey around Lake Ontario to the town of Niagara Falls. During the winter months, the iconic falls are surrounded by ice and snow, and have a truly romantic feel to them. The mist and spray from the falls combine with the cold drifting winds of winter to spray nearby ornamental walls, lamp posts, trees and buildings creating lovely ice sculptures. On bright sunny clear days when the sky is blue and the snow brilliantly white, these ice sculptures turn into natural art and make for a great photograph.
Day 5 Niagara Falls
The Niagara peninsula is known for its fine wines and multiple vineyards. On your included winery tour you will visit two renowned Niagara wineries and enjoy a wine tasting as well as a tour of each winery. If the weather is cold enough you may have the opportunity to see the production of the sweet tasting Ice wine. The tour includes lunch at a charming eatery in Niagara-on-the-Lake and allows free time to explore this captivating 19th-century town.
Day 6 Niagara Falls – Toronto
After a final wander down to the falls it is time to board your transfer back to Toronto airport for your journey home.Want to alter anything?
