Did you mean flights from Toronto to Vancouver?

Toronto, the capital of Ontario province, is an attractive city of soaring skyscrapers and tranquil green spaces. Many of those arriving in Toronto are business travelers, but with so much to see and do, many tourists choose it for a city break. It is popular with families due to the science center, aquarium and the zoo with its vast selection of animals. To escape the city life for a while, a popular excursion is to take a boat trip to Toronto Islands. Being a big city, it has all the amenities, such as restaurants, shops and museums, that you expect.

Toronto Information

Both Vancouver and Toronto are large, multicultural cities, but Toronto is far larger than Vancouver and does not offer the easy access to the countryside that Vancouver enjoys. However, there are plenty of green spaces inside Toronto, such as the scenic High Park with its playgrounds, train and open-air theater. If you are not afraid of heights, take a trip to the viewing platform of the CN Tower to enjoy spectacular views. On a clear day, you can see as far as the Niagara Falls. You can even enjoy an outside hands-free EdgeWalk around the roof’s circumference. Although a safety harness is attached, it is not an excursion for the faint-hearted.
