A huge country, stretching all the way from the Pacific in the west to the Atlantic in the east. Canada is the land of polar bears, fusion cuisine, indigenous histories, and vibrant cities that rest cheek-to-cheek with abundant natural beauty. Experience the ethereal electricity of the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights. Then there’s the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River – over 1,800 tiny islets that are freckled with ultra-fancy mansions. Of course, there’s Niagara Falls, too. This cluster of three thundering waterfalls is one of the most famous in the world and marks the border between Canada and the USA. The ‘horseshoe’ falls slips into Canada’s court – it’s the biggest of the three, and you can catch it at its most beautiful on an evening visit, when rainbow lights shine on the water. Ontario’s capital – Toronto – is the perfect spot for an action-packed city break. Lakeside beaches and gardens, a globetrotting food scene and cloud-cutting skyscrapers are just a few of the things that pull in the visitors here
Set within 7-mile long city walls is Quebec City, full of sophisticated boutiques and charming bistros and cafés. Maple syrup’s a big one – discover how the sweet treat’s made in a ‘sugar shack’ near Quebec. The capital city of Ottowa has its Parliament buildings watched over on national holidays by the traditional red-coated ‘Mounties’.
Come winter, Canada turns into a snowy playground. Whistler Blackcomb is one of the country’s most popular ski resorts and a top Canadian tourist attraction.
With so much to see and do in one country, it’s easy to see why holidays in Canada are a popular choice.
