The world’s second-biggest country; it is difficult to know exactly where to start when trying to condense into so few words exactly what it is that those who travel to Canada can experience once there. It is the country of “wow!” A place where the mouth is continually agape from the constant encounters with the sheer beauty that cover the whole of the country. From lofty mountains to glaciers, to run in with grizzly bears and whales, to rain-forests and surprisingly cosmopolitan cities; Canada has something for everyone.
Cheap flights to Canada throughout the year mean that it is a country that is always accessible, whether in summer or winter. You will need to wrap up at most points of the year, but esxpecially so during what can be the very extreme winter months. That is not to say that you should be put off, Winter is the ideal time for a visit for those who are fans of skiing and snow-boarding, and, you never know, you may even up trying out a ride on a dog-sleigh! Summers on the beach might not seem like the most natural choice when heading to Canada, but the pink-sand beaches off Prince Edward’s Islands truly are a destination the beach bum can head to in order to relax.
Canada is not all about the amazing landscapes and contrasts that the country holds for the visitor. The food is also a real treat, with masses of seafood, the local speciality of poutine in Quebec, and a whole host of cheeses and fresh fruits available right across the country.
Canada is also a cultural hot-bed of activity. Montreal’s Jazz Festival is world famous, as is Toronto’s film festival. And there are more locally specific festivals and carnivals happening throughout the year in places such as Regina, Kitchner, Edmonton, and Calgary, just to name a few.

Many of those who travel to Canada for the first time will make their first port of call in Toronto. This once previously quite closed and earnest city is not a highly open, multi-cultural delight for those lucky enough to visit. It is a lively city full of good food and good time, with a buzzing night life and highly successful sports’ franchises, not to mention being home of the film festival. For those who aren’t city lovers, there is always the option of a short trip down to the world famous Niagara Falls.
Vancouver is a city that often tops the lists of best city in the world in which to live. It has it all, beaches, mountains, culture, shopping, and the increasingly hip hangouts of SoMa where the city really comes alive! So many lists cannot be wrong; go there, but be careful that you remember to leave!
Most people will travel to Canada though with the wish to explore the natural beauty of this country rather than the exciting confines of it cities. With such a huge feast of sights and locations to choose from it is impossible to do justice to all of them here.
For those who love the thrill of the piste, Whistler is the place to go for skiing and snowboarding. Even the veteran will be blown away by the sheer size of this amazing terrain.
For a more sedate Canadian adventure, hiking in Banif and the Rockies is one of the best ways to really take your time and experience this country in all its natural beauty. A drive through the Icefields Parkway once up here is also highly recommended.
For the more adventurous, whale watching in Tofino on both the east and west coasts is something that can most people will never have the opportunity to do. To get up close and personal with these peaceful beasts of the oceans is surely a once in the lifetime treat that should be pondered.
The list could go on and on. Go and see for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.
