Exploring Canada: Things to Do and See

Canada is a naturally beautiful country, which is why many people come to visit every year. It’s the second largest country in the world, so as you can imagine; there’s a lot to get through! Here are some amazing things to do and see while you’re out exploring Canada.

See British Colombia and The Canadian Rockies

Never heard of the Canadian Rockies? They’re the famous cathedrals of North America. You must visit the Fairmont Chateau found on Lake Louise too, which will give you an idea of what old Europe was like.

The wax museum and gardens just outside of Victoria are worth a visit, so make sure you hop on a ferry after visiting Vancouver.

Visit Toronto City

This city is one of the most cosmopolitan in the world, and definitely somewhere you need to go if you’re in Canada. The city is so varied, there’s no end to the things you can do here. There’s interesting art, tasty food, fun fashion, and even opportunities to just be entertained. Visit in the summer time to go to a great Canadian festival. They’re on all the time here!  

Make Your Way to Montreal

This is like visiting the Canadian version of Paris. Almost everybody speaks French here, so make sure you dust off your old school textbooks before visiting so you can make your way around with ease. There are plenty of amazing things to see and do, including the spectacular architecture. Eat in cool cafes, enjoy shopping in unique stores, and simple take it all in on the cobbled streets.

Travel to Quebec City

Old Quebec is an UNESCO world heritage site, and is North America’s only walled city left. Because of the 17th and 18th century buildings, it looks very different to the rest of Canada, which is filled with skyscrapers.

Head Over to Baffin Island

This is Canada’s biggest island, filled with mountains and glaciers. You can see all kinds of animals here, from whales to seals. A bit like a Canadian safari.

See Niagara Falls

Probably the biggest and most amazing waterfall you’ll ever see, spanning over 13 ft. You can sail right by it on a Maid of the Mist Tour. Or, why not fly over it in a helicopter? You could even hop on a boat and sail through the gorge. It’s up to you! Make sure you take lots of pictures of this famous waterfall for your scrapbook.

Take The Cabot Trail

This is one of the world’s most beautiful drives to take. It spans 186 miles, all around the coastline and passing many beautiful places. Fishing villages are situated along here, as are beaches, opportunities for hiking, and more.

These articles should help you to make the most of your trip with their great tips. Canada is by no means small, so make sure you give yourself enough time to get through everything there is to see and do. You don’t want to rush yourself off your feet and feel fatigued!

Have a fantastic trip!
