A city-based adventure with the “wow” factor!

Guiding or Scouting activity holidays to Toronto in Canada are a great option for youth groups wanting to embark on their first long haul tour. Full of cultural diversity and locals from here, there and everywhere, Toronto’s always got a welcoming, international vibe about it and as Canada’s largest city, it’s not short of things to see and do.

Ascend the CN Tower for spectacular views of the city, take the ferry to Toronto Island, step back in time at the Black Creek Pioneer Village or watch the local baseball team, the Blue Jays, play – there’s never a dull moment in the amazing city of Toronto! And if that’s not enough, then a trip to the magnificent Niagara Falls is simply the icing on the cake!

And when you choose Venture Abroad, you choose to take all the hassle out of it, as our experts help you plan your very own tailored itinerary from start to finish. Your trip, your way!

The perfect base from which to explore!

With 4 or 5 days in this intriguing city, you want a group accommodation centre that is just a hop, skip and a jump from the city’s main attractions and we’ve found it! Toronto Metropolitan University opens its halls of residence offering great dormitory style accommodation, perfect for youth groups. Communal kitchen and lounge areas are the perfect place to catch up after a busy day exploring the city. A simple but perfectly located accommodation option!

For an extra special trip: stop in the Big Apple, New York!

Make your activity holiday a 2-centre trip and spend some time in Canada and the USA! Bolt on a few days in New York and explore some of the city’s world-renowned sites such as the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Ground Zero, to name just a few! Filling your time in New York City will never be a problem, it’ll be narrowing down your options.

Toronto is the perfect destination for youth groups looking for a cultural, city-based tour, where plenty of sight-seeing is the order of most days.

Not to be missed: a day trip to Niagara Falls!

Stand and gaze in awe as you try to appreciate the power of this natural wonder, enjoy a guided tour to learn more about the falls, take a river cruise up close to feel the power and get behind the falls for a unique view. It’s a day trip not to be missed and always a highlight with groups who travel to Toronto!

How could your trip to Toronto, Canada look?

Like all Venture Abroad activity holidays, you can tailor your time away to suit your youth group. However, we know it’s useful to see how your time away could look, so here is a suggested itinerary.

Day 1

Fly from the UK to Toronto. Settle into your hotel then head out to explore the local area.

Day 2

It’s time to get your bearings and see some of the city’s sights on a guided tour. You’ll then enjoy the rest of the day exploring the city on your own.

Day 3

There’s no better view of the city than from the main observation level of the CN tower, a whopping 346m above ground reached in just 58 seconds by high-speed lifts. Once you’ve got your feet back on the ground, head to Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada.

Day 4

Board a ferry and take a day trip to Centre Island, where you’ll find a sandy beach, Franklin’s Children’s Garden, a pier that extends into Lake Ontario, as well as the ‘must-visit’ Centerville Amusement Park.

Day 5

It’s time to head on a guided day trip to Niagara Falls where you’ll experience the falls from almost every angle with the Hornblower Cruise, Journey Behind the Falls, Niagara’s Fury and White-Water Walk.

Day 6

After a long day yesterday, you’ll enjoy a day at leisure today. Guide groups could see the Guiding Headquarters located in the city.

Day 7

Step back to the 1860s as you visit Black Creek Pioneer Village. Costumed educators will demonstrate and involve you in trades, crafts, and activities common in 1860s Ontario, and you can explore the historic buildings, meet some animals, and explore the beautiful gardens.

Day 8

It’s time to head home as you board your flight back to the UK.

This is now the third time I have used Venture Abroad, we visited Kandersteg in 2016 and Iceland in 2023. Venture Abroad are great to deal with, nothing is too much trouble and her expert help and advice is much valued. I would never consider an international trip without Venture Abroad.
