It’s time to play a bit of travel matchmaking!

If you’re the City Slicker…

 Businesswoman

You love uncovering new nightlife attractions and ordering fun cocktails in a vibrant bar. You find serenity wandering busy city streets and love destinations where there’s always something happening and shops barely shut.

If this sounds like you, then meet Toronto!

Toronto is Canada’s cosmopolitan city; it’s hip, it’s youthful and it’s romantic. It’s the ultimate urban destination, with the size of a global city but the distinct feel of Canadian culture.

Some of the world’s finest restaurants and most happening bars and clubs can be found in the streets of Toronto.

Must sees:

  • New York-style artist gallery at 401 Richmond
  • CN Tower, the 1970s engineering marvel
  • Old York marketplace St Lawrence Market
  • Downtown attraction, Distillery District, full of galleries, bars and eateries

If you’re the Winter Wanderluster…

 happiness in the winter

Love a good holiday but have ‘snow’, ‘winter’ and ‘frosty’ as essential keywords for any of your travel searches? Do you have a wardrobe full of gorgeous winter coats, great ski (or snowboard) technique, and prefer to avoid summer rather than chase it?

Then you’re ideal getaway is Vancouver!

Winter fairytale

Vancouver is the bustling west coast seaport in British Columbia, Canada, a true urban winter experience. With snow-capped mountains as your backdrop, you’re just 30 minutes from the nearest ski resort.

Cypress Mountain has some of the best snow conditions on the highest skiing and riding peak of Vancouver’s legendary North Shore Mountains, and features snow-tubing, kids camp and snowshoeing.

Must-sees:

  • Multisensory smorgasbord, Granville Island Public Market by the sea
  • Mountaintop playground with gondolas and grizzly bears, Grouse Mountain
  • Private art gallery, Hot Art Wet City
  • World’s longest suspension bridge, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

If you’re the History Hunter…

Do you scour destinations for art galleries, historical attractions, and cultural icons? Are you more interested in wandering suburbs looking for ancient relics than you are visiting the typical tourist haunts?

Then you’re destined to be matched with Montreal!

Old Montreal

Montreal is a slice of old Europe in the middle of modern Canada, complete with 18th Century history lessons, terraced cafes and old world churches. Montreal is Canada’s cultural capital, with some 250 dance and theatre companies, over 90 festivals and a tapestry of unique neighbourhoods brimming with artistic characters that make it a great art hub.

Must-sees:

  • The highlight of Old Montreal, the Basilique Notre-Dame, an ancient architectural wonder with carved wood, sculptures and stained-glass windows
  • Little Italy’s fresh market, Marche Jean-Talon
  • A must for art lovers, the Museum of Fine Arts filled with European heavyweights
  • A historical journey through the ages of Montreal, Musée d’Archéologie et d’Histoire Pointe-à-Callière

If you’re a Seaside Lover…

Do you get anxiety leaving the seaside, love the smell of salt on the air, and seek out markets, stalls and walks along the water? Maybe you don’t mind a bit of a mountain adventure but ultimately always come back to the ocean.

If this sounds like you, then your perfect match is Halifax!

Halifax City Promenade

Halifax is part of Canada’s Nova Scotia province, with clean sea breezes, beautiful parks and a thriving culinary scene to make your mouth water. The main attractions are all on the harbour, from pubs and nightlife, to music venues and museums.

Must-sees:

  • Halifax Seaport Farmers Market, with strong farm-to-table traditions
  • Hear the stories of Canada’s immigrants at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21
  • Abandoned military forts, cobbled shorelines and forests on McNabs Island in Halifax Harbour
  • The oldest surviving building in Halifax, the Protestant St Paul’s Church
