The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, aka William and Catherine, are heading west on their first official tour.

Their visit to Canada starts next week and will see them joining Canada Day celebrations (July 1) in the capital city of Ottawa, before travelling to Quebec, Prince Edward Island and several other destinations, including a visit to the world renowned Calgary Stampede.

The city of Calgary is full of atmosphere during the annual Stampede, which mixes wild action sports with live music and dozens of events.

Holidaymakers visiting Prince Edward Island are encouraged see the Islanders relationship with seafood at first hand and to try a day in the life of a Lobster fisherman.

Kitted out at daybreak in all the gear, you’ll work alongside the skipper and crew hauling the lobster traps, weighing the catch and much more - a once in a lifetime experience!
