The first thing that comes to many people’s mind when thinking of Canada is usually Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls is definitely also a place worth visiting. Experience the enormous and powerful waterfall up close, by taking a boat that brings you so close to the group of waterfalls that you are all soaked after. It is also recommended that you stay there a day or two, on the Canadian side.
Canada has a lot more to offer other than Niagara Falls; among the most popular places are the many National Parks. Three very cool and stunning National Parks to mention here is:
Banff National Park: Banff National Park is the crown jewel of the Canadian Rockies.
Jasper National Park: Jasper National Park is Canada’s most scenic national park.
Waterton Lakes National Park: Waterton Lakes National Park is an Albertan must see!
Here you will experience the beautiful nature Canada has to offer; Reflecting lakes, hot springs, bears, enormous mountains, forests, waterfalls. This area is definitely suited for you if you are an active person, since there are many activities to do here, such as hiking, skiing, biking, skating, dog sledding, rafting, fishing, and paddling.
Heading back to the east coast of Canada there are a lot of cities worth visiting; for example the capital of Canada, Ottawa. Close to here you will find Toronto, Quebec City, and Montreal. This makes it ideal to visit all 4 cities on the same trip. A highlight in Ottawa could be the Rideau Canal that is a World Heritage Site and a historic operating canal. A highlight in Toronto could be the CN Tower, the iconic 553.33 meter high tower where you can do an Edge Walk where you are harnessed to the tower while leaning out over the city. A highlight in Quebec City could be Hotel de Glace, which is a stunning ice hotel. A highlight in Montreal could be their Underground City, a fully formed city developed under Montreal’s streets.
Canada is also a very great country to go skiing in. The best place to go is definitely Whistler, which offers you 3200 hectares of incredible terrain and over 200 different runs. Two other ski areas that are also very good would be Banff and Sun Peaks. In Banff, you will be skiing in the heart of the Rockies, no wonder that this place is world famous. Sun Peaks is one of the largest ski areas in Canada and has three beautiful mountains.
