About us

We love Canada & Alaska. We live, breathe and dream for these two amazing destinations! Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable Travel Designers are not only experienced globe-trotters, they regularly travel throughout the country to gain first-hand knowledge of what we offer. We are always exploring new regions, looking for new and unique travel experiences, and inspecting our existing product to ensure everything is up to our admittedly high standards.

We are proud to offer our personal insights and recommendations to ensure your expectations aren’t just met on one of our holidays – we aim to exceed them every time. We design vacation itineraries from the traveler’s perspective - paying close attention to logistics, quality and comfort to deliver uniquely Canadian or Alaskan experiences with character, beauty and memories to last a lifetime.

At Discover Holidays, we appreciate the needs of the independent traveler and offer the insight of a local. Partnering with outstanding hotels, wilderness lodges, ranches and adventure providers, our company designs travel experiences and coordinates custom itineraries for all regions of Canada, as well as Alaska. Our roots were planted back in 1986 as an outbound travel operator in New Zealand specializing in Canada & Alaska. In 2000 we established our company in Vancouver as an inbound travel operator selling Canada & Alaska to travel companies and visitors around the world. Given our proven history creating flexible tailor-made holidays we established the Canada by Design brand to offer our skill and experience planning dream holidays for the independent traveler.

Canada & Alaska are full of diversity. From the people to the landscapes - you can discover authentic experiences, enjoy unique luxury options, and explore remote hideaways, wildlife viewing and urban culture. Allow our team to plan the Canada & Alaska trip of your dreams.
