Canada tour information

 

Vast and beautiful, Sports tours to Canada offer the perfect destination along with vivid patchwork of landscapes, peoples and cultures. Mountain resorts host some of the best skiing found on the planet while the cosmopolitan cities are real melting pots. French and British traditions combine – and occasionally clash – with US influences and growing immigrant communities to ensure a lively and vibrant atmosphere.

Ask 100 people what they think of sport in Canada and 99 are likely to mention ice hockey or skiing. The perception of the country’s climate leads most to believe that if it doesn’t involve a puck or poles then the average Canuck won’t want to know. While this would seem to be true on the surface – ice hockey is the national sport and Canada will host its second Winter Olympics in 2010 – there are many more sports with enough of a following to provide good, hospitable opposition for UK teams.

Sports tours to Canada

Rugby Union has enjoyed a steadily growing following in Canada for many years thanks largely to the prominence of the national team, which has qualified for every World Cup. Netball is also popular with an established summer league program. Other team sports, such as football and field hockey, are well represented with host teams especially welcoming to visitors.
