There is nothing quite like an “orphans’ Christmas” where you wave bye to the family and take off on a holiday adventure on your own!
Who doesn’t want to experience a white Christmas in Canada at least once in their life? Christmas songs, movies and TV all condition us to think of snow and mistletoe as the ultimate Christmas; not that summer and barbecues are a bad thing!
So why not spend Christmas with Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours – and where better than snowy white Canada?
Scenic knows its way around Christmas and they will take you to the ski fields of Whistler or the magical, fairy light-strewn Christmas markets of Vancouver – or take your inner child on a horse-drawn sleigh ride in the snow?
Make this Christmas something that comes straight out of the movies:
SEE THE BEST CHRISTMAS LIGHTS IN THE WHOLE WORLD
Forget untangling strings of coloured fairy lights and simply look into the cold, clear northern sky. At Whitehorse in the Yukon you are in prime position to view the Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights, the most magical festive light show you will ever see.
How about nature’s very own Christmas baubles? At Abraham Lake in the Canadian Rockies you can see glistening ice bubbles frozen beneath the surface of the lake. Mother Nature’s very own Christmas decorations.
CHRISTMAS MARKETS IN BANFF AND VANCOUVER
Go early for the Christmas build-up at the bustling Christmas markets in Banff and Vancouver. These magical markets put a Canadian spin on the holidays with locally crafted gifts and mugs of hot chocolate to help ward off the cold. There is nothing better to get you into the Christmas spirit.
HAVE A CHRISTMAS AT WHISTLER
Aussies know Whistler as a top skiing spot, but the town really embraces the idea of a White Christmas with Butchart Gardens bejewelled with Christmas lights and every snow-covered pine looking like a Christmas tree. Stay at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, a fairytale castle in the snowy village, and this will be the best present you ever received.
SPEND THE HOLIDAYS AT FAIRMONT BANFF SPRINGS
You haven’t seen Christmas decorations until you have seen how the halls get decked in Fairmont Banff Springs. Here you can grab a brunch with the big man himself, Santa Claus, and have pre-dinner drinks amongst the epic decorations in Mt. Stephen Hall.
