Canada is a land where there are many exciting places and great adventures. Problem one: choose a destination! Here are 10 places where every Canadian should visit, who wants to see the real north – strong and free.
List of Top 10 Places in Canada
Banff and Lake Louise, Alberta
Located within the bounds of the majestic Banff National Park, the area surrounding these two cities is a real miracle in the Rocky Mountains. This is a place with azure ice lakes, waterfalls, a rich animal world (from elk to sheep and grizzly bears) and spectacular grandeur. Stay at Banff, in a busy regional center with classic hotels such as the Fairmont Banff Springs, or enjoy the seclusion of Lake Louise, where there are a breathtaking silence and a stone’s throw to the hiking trails to the mountains.
Kluane National Park, Yukon
This giant national park, where Canada’s highest point (Mount Logan, 19,551 feet) is located, is located in the western Yukon. On its territory of 22,000 square kilometers, there are blue glaciers, lush valleys and untouched spaces. This beauty can be seen from the height of a bird’s flight on board a helicopter or an airplane equipped with skis (which allow you to make high-altitude landings on the snow). Or, even better, go skiing, using an extensive park network of trails, where you could walk days without meeting a soul.
Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland
The park is located on the shores of western Newfoundland, and it is truly a unique place where astonishing geological diversity (coastal lowlands, peaks, steep cliffs, untouched lakes, waterfalls, and even a former fjord now cut off from the ocean can be seen all in just a couple of days. Gros Morne is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as a geological miracle, an area where the drift of the continents is clearly visible.
Long Beach, Tofino, British Columbia
Called “the best surfing city in North America” by Outside magazine, Tofino is a beautiful beach town on the wild west coast of Vancouver Island, ideal for surfing and evening walks for nature lovers. Located right in the south of the city, Long Beach is the most mysterious place; a wide and very long beach with beautiful waves and bewitching beauty.
Cavendish Beach, Prince Edward Island
There is hardly a more pleasant place to spend summer days than Cavendish. A beach with reddish sand lining the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean with its cool waters, and with dunes and green hills behind.
Of course, you want to stay on such a beautiful beach as long as possible, but the trip to these parts will not be complete without visiting some historical attractions nearby, including the Green Gables Heritage Place. the Lucy Maude Montgomery museum and the houses of the most famous fictional character on the island.
Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick
Recently, this place is a serious contender in the competition for the right to be called the new seventh miracle of nature. The tide in this big bay that separates New Brunswick from Novaya Scotia is a real sight. In some places, the water here rises and falls more than 50 feet. This is best seen in a place like Hopewell Rocks. These are unique stone formations, which at low tide form the towers on land, but turn into islands when the water rises.
Located on the shores of the Hudson Strait, this subarctic city has earned worldwide fame as the capital of polar bears. There are so many bears here that there is even a “prison for polar bears” in the city, which restrains wayward animals from walking into the city until they are released into the natural habitat. Polar bears in the wild can be found on foot, as well as from the air or from the ship (local travel companies organize bold raids at the mouth of the Churchill River in Zodiacs), and this is an unforgettable experience.
The Muskoka Lakes, Ontario
In 2012, the Muskoka Lakes were named the best choice for a National Geographic tour, and for a long time among Toronto residents, it was a favorite place for a country holiday, so every weekend the townspeople came here. And if earlier the opportunity to spend here more than one day depended on whether you had a place near the lake (or access to the place), then recently appeared elite real estate – for example the charming JW Marriott on Lake Rosseau – opened the way for those who do not have here is a cottage. Shop and eat in the wonderful villages scattered throughout the region, and then stay for a long time at Joseph, Rosseau, Muskoka or another similar lake.
CN Tower, Toronto
Although the glitter of records that this tower once held, faded against the background of taller buildings in Asia, this Toronto landmark – in the past the tallest detached building on earth – goes to the sky at 1,815 feet and is one of the seven wonders of the modern world. And despite the fact that her popularity has already passed a little, the visit here is as charming as ever with Airport Limo Toronto. There are a transparent glass floor and additional entertainment such as EdgeWalk – the opportunity to walk over the chasm to the main viewing platform five feet wide, located on top of the tower at an altitude of 116 floors above the ground.
Quebec City10 places in Canada
As the oldest fortified city in North America, Quebec has both European charm and sophistication, as well as the character of French Canada. It is also a place where, as every good Canadian student historian knows, Wulf defeated Montcalm in the plains of Abraham, saving Canada from the British Empire. This city is the birthplace of the magnificent Chateau Frontenac, the dishes of Putin, the clattering horse carriages on the wide streets, the New France Festival (held in August) and, of course, the world-famous winter carnival, which always has something to do, see and try in the capital La Belle Province.
