book a july holiday to canada
If a beach holiday isn’t what you’re looking for this year then don’t worry as there are plenty of other options out there. For a taste of the lakes and mountains, then why not consider Canada.
Banff, located to the west of Calgary, is a great place to base yourself if you plan on exploring some of Canada’s national parks, and as a result attracts millions of visitors every year. Surrounded by peaks including Mount Rundle and Cascade Mountain, the area is perfect for lovers of the outdoors.
Take a helicopter ride over the Rocky Mountain national parks of Banff and Jasper and marvel at the lakes, waterfalls and mountainous terrain below. Practice your swing at one of the area’s golf courses, or pull on your hiking shoes and enjoy some of the hundreds of miles of trails which criss-cross the parks.
take a european city break to Amsterdam
If Canada sounds a little too active for you then perhaps indulge yourself with a European city break. Consider heading to the north of Holland to find out what Amsterdam has to offer.
Spend time browsing the city’s markets and taking romantic walks through the maze of small streets, canals and bridges. The well known Van Gough Museum is just one of over 30 museums in Amsterdam, so art lovers are well catered for.
One of the best ways to get around is by bike and with 400 kilometres of cycle paths to ride along you won’t be short of a route. With an average high temperature of 22C in July, you won’t find yourself too hot and bothered by using pedal power. A warning though - don’t walk in the bike lanes if you want to stay in one piece!
Thirsty? Then head to The House of Bols where you can find out about the world of cocktails and bartending, or learn about the city’s history at The Amsterdam Dungeon, where actors, special effect and rides bring the past to life.
Whether you’re looking to relax in the sun, challenge yourself in the great outdoors or immerse yourself in the culture of a strange city, The Co-operative Travel can help you find the perfect destination.
