Family Holidays to Canada

Canada is a playground for all ages and a perfect option for an adventure-filled family holiday. The wildlife is abundant with humpback whales, orcas and bears dotting the coastline and waters beneath – take a boat ride from Vancouver Island to spot these epic creatures. Get back to nature with hiking trails, canoeing and ziplining in the Rockies and try your hand at horse-riding whilst staying on a ranch – yeehaw! Get more of an idea of how we like to do things before you embark on your family adventure to Canada with Rickshaw.

Getting around in Canada

The beauty of a Rickshaw trip is the ease of travelling independently. In Canada, we offer self-drive holidays as this is the best and easiest way to experience this vast country. You can load up the car and head out on the open road with your family in tow. Part of the experience of travelling through Canada is the journey from place to place with sweeping mountain views and stunning coastlines along the way!
