Gourmet Holiday Gifts
Like other North American countries, Canadian’s chocolate purchases ramp up around the winter holidays. Chocolates a classic gift for family, friends, and even business associates during the busy Christmas and New Year’s season, and are an undisputed favorite for Valentine’s Day. Especially in larger cities such as Toronto, Montreal, and Calgary, Canadians are also increasingly expecting gourmet gifts to do more than simply deliver something delicious. Canadians increasingly sophisticated chocolate purchases put a premium on gifts that can be customized to the occasion and are delivered with a sense of style. zChocolat’s unique holiday collections meet Canadian expectations for both exceptional French chocolate and elegant delivery. Their annual Christmas collection features limited-edition packaging in a number of different sizes, with options ranging from unexpectedly stunning ballotins to solid mahogany boxes. Valentine’s Day receives a similar treatment, with luxury packaging making the perfect containers for handmade chocolates.
Warming Hearts with Luxury Chocolate in Canada
An international cocoa organization known as the ICCO estimates that Canadians consume roughly 6.4 kilos of chocolate a year. Assuming an average chocolate bar size of 40 grams, that works out to around 160 chocolate bars per Canadian per year. That puts them in the top ten chocolate-loving countries in the world! And while a few Canadian chocolate companies are beginning to earn a reputation for their locally-produced candies, many Canadians still prefer European chocolates over domestic options, especially when the chocolate is destined as a luxury gift for someone special.
Romantic Chocolate Gifts Delivered Anywhere in Canada
Since the 1880’s when the Canadian side of Niagara Falls became a popular site for newlyweds, Canada has been considered the Honeymoon Capital of North America. Beautiful forests, glistening rivers, and modern cities brimming with culture and arts means romance is constantly in the air in Canada. Whether it’s a wedding in Ottawa or an anniversary trip to Toronto, the Romantic Collection from zChocolat is filled with unique culinary creations from Master Chocolatier Pascal Caffet that combine the best of fine French chocolate and the spirit of pure romance.

Cold Winters and Thoughtful Gifts
Customization and quality matter to Canadians, who consider themselves among the most thoughtful givers in the world.

Well-crafted chocolates and other candies, such as the nougats, pralines, orangettes, etc. offered by zChocolat can also help ward off winter’s chill.

Customized Business Gifts Delivered to Canada
Canada’s reputation for thoughtfulness extends into their bustling business culture as well. Evidence of their thriving economy is especially obvious in the country’s most populated city, Toronto. As the 4th largest city in North America (trailing only Mexico City, New York City, and Los Angeles), the Toronto skyline is peppered with nearly 2000 skyscrapers and is home to tens of thousands of companies. While extravagant business gifts aren’t a cultural expectation in Canada, gifts reflecting appreciation and respect are very much appreciated. In most cases, the level of personalization is actually more important than the inherent value of the gift itself--for many Canadians it really is the thought that counts. zChocolat provides several convenient options for customizing gourmet gifts. Delicious under any circumstance, the inclusion of an engraved nameplate, custom wax seal, and individualized message card are just some of the ways to give a gift from zChocolat a personal touch.

Discover more about Canada
Canada: French: [kanadɑ]) is a country in the northern part of Northen America. Its 10 provinces and 3 territories stretch from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean and north into the Arctic Ocean, covering 9.98 million square kilometres. Canada is the world's second-largest country by total superficie and the 4th-largest country by land. Canada's southern border with the United States is the world's longest bi-national border in the entire world. Most of the country has a cold or severely cold winter climate, but southerly areas are warm in summer. Canada is sparsely populated, the majority of its land territory being dominated by forest and the Rocky Mountains chain. It is highly urbanized with 82 per cent of the 35.15 million people concentrated in large and medium-sized cities, many near the southern border. Its capital is Ottawa, and its largest metropolitan areas are Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. Ottawa is also a great place for business, the economic lung of Canada.
We deliver within 2 business days to all cities in Canada such as :
The second largest country in the world is that of large spaces par excellence. It is partly covered by tens of thousands of lakes, forests and plains that stretch as far as the eye can see, then northward, from the great icy spaces of the tundra to the ice pack. In Canada, the sky is so "open" that you come back with a lot of head space. Everything is great, from the width of the St. Lawrence River to the majesty of the Rocky Mountains, from the length of a trip to the Gaspé Peninsula to the height of Toronto's skyscrapers.
If you're flying to Canada, anything is possible when it comes to adventure and outdoor sports. You can cross the country (Trans-Canada) by motorcycle or train, discover whales at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, admire the world's highest tides in the Bay of Fundy. You can participate in the maple syrup harvest in a "sugar shack" or a typical Indian evening, drumming and dancing. You can go ice fishing or sport salmon fishing after a seaplane trip. You can canoe down the river or snowmobile through the snow-covered forests.
Cities, large and small, can also be exciting. Whether Anglophone or Francophone, they bear witness to a more or less ancient immigration and cultural mosaic. Quebec City is the historic city, Toronto is resolutely modern and dynamic, Vancouver the most cosmopolitan. Canada is divided into Provinces and Territories, with their own geographical and cultural specificities. The choice of activities through meetings is vast: discover the French-speaking festivals of Montreal, listen with delight to the accent of the Acadians of New Brunswick, go to meet the Inuit in Inuvik, join the gold diggers in Yukon, discover the Ukrainian dances in the prairies of Manitoba...
A stay in Canada, summer or winter, is the fundamental choice. Indeed, the difference is notorious: this continental country goes from very hot to very cold. In traditional tourism, it is advised and easier to travel in the summer season, from May to October. But it all depends on the activity being interviewed, winter being synonymous with snowshoeing or snowmobiling, cross-country skiing or skating on the ice.
This immense country is mostly populated in its northern part, the north being covered with vast forests sprinkled with a multitude of more or less large lakes and rivers. So it is especially in this southern strip, which runs along the United States, that we travel. But it is also interspersed with the great plains, those of the great cereal crops, and the Rocky Mountains. The Maritime provinces have this maritime appeal and that of Acadian culture, Quebec is recognized for its Francophonie, English-speaking Ontario is recognized for its vitality and British Columbia for its multiculturalism. You can get off the beaten track, and explore the Northwest Territories or the Yukon. These sparsely populated provinces have the attraction of a great adventure: a landing near the Arctic Circle on the banks of the imposing Mackenzie River to see the Dene Indians is a strong experience!
Nature is undoubtedly the highlight of the country: you will long remember the diversity of Indian summer colours, the strength of Niagara Falls or the northern lights.
Geography, sports and cultures dominate Canada. 7,700 kilometres wide from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific, one can hardly envisage discovering this country at once. The landscapes are often grandiose. Quebec, the first land of immigration, is the flagship destination for Francophones.
Art and Culture in Canada
The whole country presents throughout the plethora of festivals of all kinds. In Montreal, the "Just for Laughs" festivals, and the jazz festival on Saint Denis Street in July, attract many spectators. Then, in August, it is necessary to spend one or several evenings with the international fireworks, drawn since the island Notre Dame. The New France celebrations in Quebec City, which trace the city's history, take place in early August. In a different genre, the "Stampede" in Calbary, at the beginning of July, is the western cowboy festival, with its famous rodeos. Other highlights include the Acadian Festival in Clare, Nova Scotia, the Aboriginal Peoples Festival in Hamilton, Ontario in November, and Quebec City's ice sculptures at Christmas.
What to Visit in Canada
First, renting a car in Canada will be the best way to visit as many places in the country as possible. In Montreal, cross the St. Lawrence River on the Jacques Cartier Bridge. Shop in the famous rue Sainte Catherine, go for lunch on rue Saint Denis, walk along rue Saint Laurent. In Quebec City, after passing by Dufferin Terrace below Frontenac Castle, you have walked the old ramparts and will dine in one of the many restaurants along the Grand Allée. In Toronto, you'll take the CN Tower's high-speed elevator to watch the sun set over the city. You can then spend the evening by the lake in the "beaches" district, which is full of pubs, restaurants of all kinds and terraces.
Visiting Canada: The Unavoidable
We start our top of the list of things to see in Canada with the city of Montreal, an almost mandatory part of your trip!A very cosmopolitan and multicultural city, having lived there for 3 years, I can tell you that Montreal has a host of activities to do!Here are the places of interest that you should not miss:The plateau Mont-Royal with its typical houses with colorful facades and long outside stairs
Mount Royal Park and its famous belvedere to enjoy a panoramic view of the entire city
Old Montreal, the historic district
Notre-Dame de Montréal Basilica and its impressive interior
The Old Port for a walk along the St. Lawrence River
Saint Joseph's Oratory, an imposing building located on one side of Mount Royal
Then on to the second largest city in the province of Quebec after Montreal, Quebec.
Here, no buildings like in Montreal, Quebec City is a small old fashioned city, more European in type than its big sister. Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it has retained all its charm and has a unique character conferred on it by its old houses and small alleys. Personally I loved the very warm atmosphere there. Maybe it also reminded me a little of my country of origin, France.
Places to see during your visit of the city :
Frontenac Castle, the icon of the city and one of the most photographed hotels in the world
The Dufferin Terrace promenade offers an unobstructed view not only of the castle but also of the St. Lawrence River, Île d'Orléans and Quebec City's Lower Town.
The Petit-Champlain district, the oldest in North America, with its pedestrian streets illuminated in all seasons and its Place Royale where the city was founded in 1608
The Citadel of Québec and its Fortifications
The Plains of Abraham, a huge green space where the summer festival of Québec is organized every summer. It is the largest music festival in Canada, and there are great international artists such as the Rolling Stones, Muse, Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga etc... There is something for everyone!
A few minutes drive from Quebec City, I also advise you to visit the Montmorency Falls. You probably don't know it, but they're higher than Niagara Falls. Their flow is really impressive and they are all equally beautiful in winter when they are frozen. A footbridge located at the very top makes it possible to cross them, sensations guaranteed!
3. Niagara Falls
Although the Montmorency Falls are impressive, they are less famous than the famous Niagara Falls.
It is undoubtedly one of my most beautiful memories in Canada and one of the attractions not to be missed on a tour in Canada.
Niagara Falls can be admired from every angle and in many different ways:
By boat of course! put on your poncho (blue smurf the year of our visit!), climb on the boat and let's go for a good iced shower! The boat takes you to the foot of the falls where the roar of the water is striking and where you can feel all the power that comes from it.
In the elevator. You will descend just behind the huge water curtain to enjoy a unique view. Here too you may get a little wet.
From the top of the Skylon Tower and its panoramic terrace
And for the "luxury" version, by helicopter. It's certainly not cheap, but it's definitely an experience you'll remember your whole life!
Toronto is not far from Niagara Falls, a good reason to visit Canada's largest city.
Toronto looks a lot like New York with its skyscrapers, many shopping areas and some with a more bohemian atmosphere.
The major attraction of Toronto is undoubtedly to climb to the top of the CN Tower, so I tried it. Knowing that I have vertigo, you can imagine that I found this impressive. You first have to take the elevator and leaving a transparent glass floor allows you to admire the view 113 floors below. Glazed windows also offer an exceptional panorama over the entire city.
List of other places of interest to see in Toronto :
The Royal Ontario Museum, Canada's largest natural history museum
The Ripley Aquarium of Canada and its 16,000 marine animals
The historic district of the distillery with its restaurants, art galleries and trendy
The Art Gallery of Ontario
The Toronto Islands with their charming holiday homes from the 1920s
5. The Thousand Islands
During my visit to Niagara Falls and Toronto, I took the opportunity to take a boat trip to the Thousand Islands, a little less known place in Canada.
The best way to visit them is to opt for a one or several hour cruise. Ships depart from Rockport, Gananoque or Kingston. Most of them are tourist boats (about fifty people on board) but you can also take a private boat.
The cruise will allow you to sail in the middle of some of the 1865 islands.
All of different sizes, some house huts or more luxurious houses, even a castle!
6. Mont Tremblant
Mont Tremblant is one of the most famous places in Canada to admire the colours of Canadian fall. And yes, it is here that you will find the emblematic postcard landscapes, with warm and colourful trees. The colours range from yellow to intense red. If you're lucky enough to be in Quebec in the fall, it's part of your tour!
A hike from the bottom of the village up to the top of the Mont allows you to admire the lake and its colourful trees with different viewpoints. It's climbing pretty good!
In winter, Mont Tremblant becomes one of the best ski resorts in Canada and is a delight for skiers and snowboarders. There are about 100 runs and a 7 hectare snowpark, with ramps and slides.
Finally, in summer, you will find a summer toboggan run, a mini-golf course and you can of course enjoy many water sports on the lake.
Why don't you join me in visiting Canada's capital, Ottawa, during your stay?
Small list of sites to see in Ottawa :
Parliament Hill where the seat of Canada's federal government is located.
Climb up the Peace Tower for a 360° view
Go along the banks of the Rideau Canal, known to become the world's largest natural ice rink in winter
Discover the BY market district, a very lively area all day long
Visit one of the many museums: the Canadian Museum of History, the Aviation and Space Museum, the Canadian Museum of Nature, the National Gallery of Canada, the Canadian War Museum.
A word about the Canadian Museum of History, which is really one of the most interesting museums I have ever visited. The exhibitions are super well done and captivating. The history of Canada's first nations can be found there and the totem pole collection is impressive. It is not for nothing that it is the most visited museum in Canada! Include on your to-do list in Ottawa.
8. Banff National Park
Banff National Park offers some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. There is no doubt that it has its place in my top things to do and see in Canada!
This natural park is located in the Canadian Rockies, a mountain range renowned as one of the most impressive in the world. The landscapes are simply extraordinary.
Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to the two most photographed lakes in the world: Lake Louise and Moraine Lake. Thanks to the silt carried by the glacier water, their colour is indeed an intense turquoise blue. You have to see it to believe it!
Another lake to see in the national park is Minnewanka, which with its 21km long is the largest in Banff.
Around each of the lakes, you will find many hiking trails to admire them from all sides and try to make the perfect photo souvenir.
9. Icefield Parkways / Icefield Parkways
The Icefields Parkway (Highway 93) is one of the most beautiful scenic roads in Canada, and for some, the world. I strongly advise you to integrate it into your program during your stay.
It links the towns of Banff and Jasper for nearly 230 km through the national parks. Numerous car parks and lookouts have been set up to allow visitors to stop and admire the magnificent natural landscapes and take beautiful photos. Waterfalls, canyons, glaciers, rivers, lakes, nature lovers will be delighted!
On the road, you can see :
Bow Lake, one of the most popular
Peyto Lake has the particularity of being in the shape of a fox or a wolf (according to opinion)
The valley of the 5 lakes
10. Jasper National Park
Jasper National Park is the largest of the mountain parks.One of the main sites of this natural park are the Athabasca Falls, fed by the melting of the same glacier. You can also walk through the glacier or take a bus with huge wheels specially designed to ride on it.Also not to be missed in the park :Maligne Canyon 50 meters deep, Maligne Lake and Spirit Island in the middle, Medicine Lake.
