Vacation packages are a terrific way to save on your vacations to Canada by bundling the components of your trip and buying them all at once. But booking a package, even an all inclusive one, doesn't mean it will be a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all deal. There are tons of options to choose from, and they can be as basic as a straightforward flight and hotel combo, or as elaborate as you can imagine. Whether you're dreaming of a cheap weekend getaway in Toronto, Vancouver, or Montreal; a spa package in the Rockies; a rafting trip to the Laurentians, or anything else your heart desires, there's bound to be a package that suits you to a tee.
This advice has been repeated to the point of becoming a cliche, but booking in advance really is the most surefire way to save on travel. Book your vacation as soon as you possibly can because prices creep up over time, sometimes rising dramatically as the date of departure nears. If you book at the last minute you're far more likely to encounter high prices than to score a bargain-basement discount.
The timing of Canada vacations depends on what you want to do and where you plan to do it. For example, winter is the obvious season for ski packages, when the conditions are right for skiing, snowboarding, dog sledding, snowmobiling, or snowshoeing. Conversely, golf packages are most popular in summertime. If you have a specific activity in mind, it's always a good idea to do a little research, before booking your vacation, and find out when is the optimal time for enjoying it in your destination of choice.
In general, the summer months in Canada, from June through mid-September, are warm with temperatures in the low teens (Celsius) to mid-twenties most summer days. Occasionally temperatures spike into the thirties during a heat wave, but this is a rare occurrence. Temperatures in winter can be even more extreme, regularly dipping to well below -20°C in many parts of the country, not including the wind chill factor! Winter temperatures can also be mild, and any day that is within ten degrees of freezing is considered a nice one. Conditions are generally much milder on the coasts, especially in Vancouver, where they are more prone to rain than snow and less likely to experience extreme heat.
