There is a lot to explore in Canada, a vast country with so much variety; mountains, sea, prairies, arctic terrain, wilderness, cities, natural sites, historic sites. Perhaps this summer is the time to see something new in this beautiful country.
If you are looking for cheap flights in Canada, a good place to start is an online discount travel site. You will have a good overview of what airlines fly to the destination you want, and be able to compare prices and schedules. Many discount travel sites have email letters that will let you know of seat sales and great fares coming up, limited time specials, hotel and car discounts, and other relevant travel news. You can also sign up for fare alerts from some sites, so you can track the fare for the itinerary you want, and book when you feel the price is right.
Summer is the time to visit the Far North, when the days are long and the weather mild. Canada’s North is actually about half the landmass of the country, with a population of about 100,000 people. It ranges from the Yukon and Northwest Territories to Nunavut. Most of the natural resources of Canada are present in the North, as well as natural wonders such as aurora borealis and icebergs. The flora and fauna are very different from that found in the more southern provinces, having adapted to the polar climate.
One place to visit and get a good taste of northern life is Yellowknife, NWT. With a population of about 20,000, it is a cultural and business centre. Its long history has made it rich in diversity, with settlers having come from over thirty countries, and aboriginal people from many different parts of Canada. It was settled during the “gold rush” and today is the diamond capital of Canada. With people coming from many different countries and regions, Yellowknife has a wide variety of arts and culture.
Yellowknife is also rich in natural beauty and outdoor opportunities for the nature lover, hunter or fisherman. Great Slave Lake is around the corner, and offers many adventures. Nahanni National Park Reserve is another site not to be missed. There are three airlines that service Yellowknife; Canada Jazz, Canadian North, and First Air all fly from Calgary and Edmonton daily.
Whether you are looking for a flight to Yellowknife, or another Canadian destination, booking ahead will give you the most choices of flights. Remember that flying mid-week is a way to find cheap flights in Canada, and flying at off-peak times is another trick for finding cheap flights. Taking an overnight flight across the country will save you money, and time.
