Ontario has a continental climate with hot summers and cold winters. Cheap flights to Ontario can usually be found in the winter months, but make sure to bring warm clothes and plan a lot of inside-activities.
When to fly to Ontario
Spring and summer are usually the best times to visit Ontario and when most travelers book Ontario flights and lodging. Toronto hosts many festivals and this is also a great time to visit the Niagara Falls area.
Winter is cold and can become frigid and windy, but if you're willing to brave the cold this is also a great time to find cheap flights to Ontario. Plan smart - many of the top tourist attractions reduce hours or close outside of the peak travel season, but the ones that remain open likely feature reduced rates.
Getting around Ontario
Renting a car is often the best way to really explore Ontario. Reserve a rental car when you book Ontario flights, especially if you're travelling during the peak season.
Bike paths and hiking trails are flanked throughout the province and many tourism offices have trail maps or guided tours for your convenience.
Domestic Canada flights depart from Ontario daily.
