As one of the most breathtakingly beautiful countries in the world, it can be hard to decide where to visit and what to see in Canada. The beauty of the glaciers, mountains, coastlines and the nature has to be seen to be believed.
However, we’ve sifted it down to seven of the country’s best natural and city highlights, from the iconic Niagara Falls to the mysterious Thousand Islands.
Are you off to Canada for a timeshare break this winter? Let us know your favourite spots.
One of the world’s most famous attractions, Niagara Falls has to be a bucket list must. Watch in awe as 2.2 million litres of water cascade over the edge of the falls every second, then sop to enjoy dinner at the Skylon Tower, which revolves 360 degrees, for magnificent views of the Falls.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, beautiful Old Quebec is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Pay a visit to the iconic Chateau, stroll through the city’s charming cobbled streets, designer boutiques and cafes, then cruise down the St. Lawrence River to learn the story of ‘New France’.
The Northern Lights
There are plenty of opportunities to view one of Earth’s most stunning natural displays from Canada. We love to watch the Northern Lights from the comfort of traditional lodges in Whitehorse, Yukon. Arm yourselves with snacks and hot drinks, listening to local stories about the ancestry of the área.
Amazingly, 75 million years ago, dinosaurs prospered in southern Alberta. View the evidence of this pre-historic activity with the fossils spread across the rocky landscape. You can also visit the Dinosaur Provincial Park, where you can explore the local Badlands and even join an architectural dig.
The Inside Passage
Stretching across 25,000 miles of British Columbian coastline up to Alaska, nature lovers can revel in the snow-capped mountains, storm-swept island beaches, waterfalls, coastal rainforests and wildlife.
The 1000 Islands
Located between Ontario and New York, these islands amount to one of the most relaxing places to enjoy Canada’s natural beauty. Take a hike around the National Park, or fish along Eel Bay on Wellesley Island. You can even try your hand at kayaking, scuba diving or white water rafting.
The Canadian Rockies
The iconic Rockies provide blanketed wilderness, beautifully clear lakes and majestic snow-capped mountains. We love climbing to the top of Mount Ida and enjoying the panoramic views, while the pretty towns of Banff and Lake Louise are famous for their spectacular winter ski and snowboard resorts.
