Amazing Canada – 5 Places that Are a Must-See

Canada is a land of unimaginable vastness and pristine nature. The second largest country in the world sprawls over the North American continent. As well as three oceans – the Pacific, the Atlantic, and the Arctic. The sparsely populated country has some wonderful metropolitan cities. With the majority of its expanse is a wild country of forests and lakes. With a country of this scale, it seems almost impossible to plan an itinerary, but we’re here to help. Here are some of our top picks to see in Canada. Amazing Canada – 5 places that are a must-see.

The wild beauty of Jasper National Park

All fans of wildlife should definitely head to this park in the Rockies. This is the perfect location to see northern animals like moose, elk, and even bears, in their natural habitat. Jasper is the biggest national park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and it’s dazzling in its beauty. It’s full of lakes, waterfalls, hot springs, and even glaciers. This is the perfect starting point for exploration of the Columbia Icefield, an icy basin that feeds eight glaciers – among them the Athabasca, a popular tourist destination.

Lake Louise in the midst of the Canadian Rockies

Staring at the surreal turquoise waters of Lake Louise, nestled snugly among the mountainous slopes of the Rockies, you would be forgiven if you thought that the sight before you is a mere dream. The lake and the eponymous village on its shores are caged by the ragged, imposing peaks. In face of so much beauty, it is easy to see why this has got to be one of the most gorgeous destinations in Canada. A word of advice before you leave: wrap up warm – the area is characterized by subarctic climate. Like all the best Canada holidays, heading to Banff National Park means immersing yourself in true, untouched wilderness.

The giant sequoias of British Columbia

Finding yourself amongst the giant redwoods of British Columbia is a dreamlike experience. It feels like you were transported millions of years ago, to the age of the dinosaurs. Of course, they aren’t really that old. But some of the oldest Douglas firs on Vancouver Island date back an impressive 800 years. Amongst these ancient giants, visitors also have the chance to witness unique living archaeological artefacts: red cedars stripped of their bark by the Aboriginal tribes for spiritual ceremonies.

The cosmopolitan spirit of Toronto

If there is any place on earth that fully embodies multiculturalism and takes pride in its diversity. It is Toronto – the city of 140 languages. The capital of Ontario is one of the biggest cities on the whole continent. This is a place with many faces and plenty to see and do. Don’t miss the fascinating Historic Distillery District or one of the best Zoos in the world. Toronto is also a great destination to take your kids. There is an array of theme parks, an impressive aquarium, and the restaurant with the most stunning view you are likely to find – right at the top of the CN Tower.

The historic treasures of Quebec City

Sporting a decidedly European vibe, Quebec City is unlike any other place on the North American continent, resembling Paris far more than any Canadian city. The Old Town is a UNESCO Heritage site, with buildings dating back to the 17th and 18th century, romantic cobbled streets and all the museums you could hope to visit. Don’t miss Place Royale, where the city was established, or the magnificent and iconic building of the hotel Château Frontenac. Quebec City is a wonderful place to spend the summer – street entertainment is aplenty, with buskers, festivals, acrobats and other acts.

Canada is a land of extraordinary diversity in every respect. The cosmopolitan cities are home to wonderful, friendly people of all races and creeds. Geographically, you have the chance to encounter a whole plethora of landscapes that you would be hard-pressed to find in any other single country in the world. If you can bear the cold, pack your bags and head north, Canada awaits!
