Canada in May


Canada in May : Travel budget & tourist seasons.


Budget your trip depending on your departure time.

Beyond the tourist season (low, medium or high season) of the destination country, prices of your flight, hotel or all-inclusive stays may also vary depending on the demand in your country (our rates are evaluated from western Europe).

Thus, from western Europe, a stay will often be more expensive for a start during the school holidays.

In May, here's what you can expect on average:

  • All-inclusive stays: 1830 € / week

  • Round-trip flight: 700 €

  • Tourist season: low

Canada: Climate & Weather


The Canadian climate is strongly influenced by the latitude of each area concerned. The further north you go the lower the temperatures will go too.

The year is separated into four seasons, more or less defined according to the area. Along the coasts there is more humidity whereas the interior plains are much dryer.

July and August are the hottest months with temperatures reaching above 20°C.

Winter can be long and harsh with temperatures dropping to –20°C in January.

All the seasons have their charm so choosing the perfect time to visit is difficult. Winter is great for skiing, July and August for camping, spring and autumn for the spectacular foliage and views as well as the peace and quiet.
