The Government of Canada announced free admission for all visitors to national parks, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas in 2017 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. 

This celebratory year provides an excellent opportunity to add a new national park or national historic site to your itinerary at no additional cost. For example escape to the outdoors in La Mauricie National Park (200 km from Montreal), or stop by Laurier House, home to two of Canada’s Prime Ministers (Ottawa). Parks Canada’s 168 National Historic Sites tell the stories of Canada’s history.

This is also a great opportunity to offer you the added value of one of Parks Canada’s special programs such as guided tours, interactive activities or behind-the-scenes experiences (fees apply). This gives you the opportunity to become a “Soldier for a Day” and fire a musket at the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site or taste heritage chocolate at the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. Relax as you take a dip in the Canadian Rockies Hot Springs, or become energized as you watch the sun meet the sea on the Skyline Sunset Hike in Cape Breton Highlands National Park.

With so much to offer – and now some of it is for free next year – Canada is always a great destination and just a call away – 01323 446550 or email info@experienceholidays.co.uk – Let us help you make the most of your bespoke tailor made holiday.
