Where To Go On Holiday In Canada
To experience Mother Nature at her finest head to the central region of the Prairies where rivers meet waterfalls and lakes, and wildlife roams freely. Hudson Bay is famed for its great many polar bears, whilst Lake Winnipeg offers ample fishing opportunities. If fishing’s not your thing, hire yourself a canoe and set sail to explore this vast and beautiful lake.
Alternatively head east and lose (or find!) yourself in the wilderness of the Nunavut tundra where you can experience the traditional Inuit way of life. Here you can get your kicks trying your hand at dog sledding, skiing and even riding a snowmobile.
The east of the country is home to the bustling city of Toronto, the capital of Ottawa and of course the breathtaking Niagara Falls. Pair the cities with a break in the Great Lakes region to experience both sides of Canada.
The region of Quebec will captivate with its majestic beauty. The area is famed for its abundance of maples which paint the region a vibrant red during the fall. Other notable areas include the immensely beautiful Mont Tremblant National Park, the Gaspé Peninsula and the marine life centred around the Madeleine Islands. And for a slice of city life don’t miss the stunning Victorian cityscape of Montreal.
Visit the otherworldly Atlantic Provinces where seafood features heavily on the menu and fishing villages are sure to charm. The area is home to outstanding landscape, fantastic nature watching (look out for puffins and whales) and pristine beaches.
Over in the west the Canadian Rockies and the incredible ski resort of Banff National Park lure tourists with their rugged beauty, and hiking is order of the day. This part of the country is also home to a wide array of wildlife, including buffalo (located at the aptly named Wood Buffalo National Park), bears (best seen along the South Nahanni River) and moose in amongst the Rockies. It is also in the west where you can relive the Gold Rush along the Klondike River, hone your winter sports skills and relax in the dazzling city of Vancouver.
Better still, grab yourself a ticket on the Trans-Canadian Railway and see the lot!
