Take a holiday in Canada and explore the sprawling Rocky Mountains or savour the Atlantic Ocean's salty breezes. The bustling multiculturalism of Vancouver and Toronto will make your holidays in Canada an exciting escape. Go fishing at one of thousands of freshwater lakes, or surf the waves at Pacific Ocean beaches in British Columbia.

Visit Sweden's arctic north for mountainous wilderness or the eastern Baltic coast for rocky islands.

Staying safe

It’s prudent to take care when travelling, here are some helpful tips before you go:

  1. Plan your itinerary and research local laws and social attitudes on every place you intend to visit.
  2. Check that your accommodation accepts same-sex couples before you book.
  3. Ensure you have the right documentation to be allowed entry, given there are some common heteronormative expectations. 
  4. Stay street smart and stick to busy, well-lit streets when walking after dark.

To better prepare for your LGBTQ+ holiday, read the government’s foreign travel advice. It's written and regularly updated by the consulates in the specific destination. As well as informing you of important cultural differences, including attitudes to LGBTQ+, it will also serve to protect you from terrorism, theft and violence. The IGLTA (International LGBTQ+ Travel Association) can provide supplementary guidance too.
