Fall Colours

Explore the vibrant colours of Canada

In Canada, we’re so glad to live in a world where there are Octobers (at least Canadian author L.M Montgomery thought this was the case). The enchanting dapples of red and golden light under beech, birch, maple and poplar trees make Fall a magical time to visit Canada. The air is getting just a little cooler the nights more crisp. This transitional time is just right, the summer crowds are ebbing away and you get to catch Canada in its finest golden hours.
