From the awe-inspiring landscapes with an abundance of natural wonders to its cities rich in tradition and outstanding modern architecture – Canada truly has it all. Check out our selection of the destinations you must visit during your holiday in Canada:
Banff National Park
Banff became Canada’s first ever national park in 1885 in order to protect its natural hot springs. Along the spectacular route to Banff town, you can stop to take a snow-coach ride on the Athabasca Glacier!
Located on the US-Canadian border, Niagara Falls is a natural beauty consisting of three waterfalls: the American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls. They converge and rise over a 52-metre cliff, cascading into the rushing river below and creating the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world, so it’s no wonder it’s used as a source for hydroelectric power.
Few cities have a skyline to rival Toronto’s which is even more striking seen from the pretty offshore islands which encircle the harbour. Highlights of this cosmopolitan city include, the CN Tower Old and New City Halls, Casa Loma, the St. Lawrence Market, the Flatiron Building, Chinatown and much more.
The Thousand Islands constitute an archipelago of 1,864 islands that straddle the Canada-U.S. border in the Saint Lawrence River as it emerges from Lake Ontario. Take a boat journey and relax on board the cruise whilst taking in the picturesque riverside with its many summer homes and abundant wildlife.
The largest city in Canada’s Québec province and the second-largest French speaking city in the world. Founded by French Catholic settlers in 1642, Montreal has staunchly maintained its French language and culture. In fact, with the French signs, cobblestoned streets and wrought-iron balcony railings of the old town, you may be mistaken for thinking you have found yourself in France.
The highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies is located in the awe-inspiring Mount Robson Park, where you’ll also find glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons and wildlife.
British Columbia’s capital is in a stunning coastal location and has a beautiful mountainous backdrop. Visit the 1,001-acre Stanley Park with its collection of totem poles, the iconic Canada Place, an architectural landmark famous for its ship-like appearance and check out the historic Gastown, the oldest part of the city.
Now you know the places to see you can now start planning your trip to Canada! Discover the Travel Department’s Western Canada & the Rockies holiday or take their Canada’s Maple Leaf Trail tour.
