US & Canada Discovery Winter
Canada and America are big places with big reputations, and their larger-than-life personalities are all the more impressive in the snow. Check out the Windy City, see a completely different side of American life in small-town Ohio, experience the misty magic of Niagara Falls, attend an exhilarating ice hockey match in Toronto, be charmed by stately downtown Ottawa, explore eclectic and French-infused Montreal, get behind the scenes of American food production en route to Stowe, walk the Freedom Trail in Boston, and finish up among the snow-dusted icons and skyscrapers of New York. Along the way, there’s a slew of winter festivals and Christmas markets to explore.
- Winter is a great time to travel the States and Canada – it’s less crowded and the snow and Christmas decorations can be magical. This flexible itinerary is specially designed to show you not only the highlights but also the added bonus of some seasonal treats
