Canada is a fascinating place to visit, a land that has so much variety within it’s borders and a country far bigger than many think. From busy cities, beautiful landscapes, rugged mountains, icy towns and bilingual locals, Canada has something for everyone and here are our top 4 picks for what to do in the land of the mounties.
This monstrous waterfall tops this list, technically 3 waterfalls in one, Niagara sits across the US and the Canadian border and is a natural wonder. There are several options available to see the best of the falls, you can admire them from a distance on the streets of Toronto, take a bus tour around the falls, jump on one of the boats that sail around the bottom of the falls ( remember your waterproof coat) or you can even head on a tour underneath the falls in an underground tunnel. Don’t miss this incredible waterfall when you head to Canada.
Hit the Piste
Such is Canada’s proximity to the Arctic Circle and it’s rugged mountains, it makes for the perfect place to go skiing and several resorts in the north exist solely for this reason. If you want to go skiing in Canada the top resorts are Whistler, which was used during the Winter Olympics, Banff, which also has one of the World’s largest film festivals each year and Panorama mountain village, a resort that also has fantastic biking and golfing options. If you like to ski or would like to try it out then Canada is the perfect place for you.
Vancouver is arguably the coolest city in Canada, a beautifully located city that sits on the West Coast right on the edge of the Pacific Ocean and is surrounded by mountains. The city is a great place to spend some of your time in Canada, a city with a vibrant art scene that can be felt through the streets bars and restaurants and a city that offers visitors countless activities to see and do. There are huge open spaces where you can partake in sporting activities, museums like the Science Centre and the Museum of Anthropology to visit and plenty of live music and art shows taking place every night for you to have some fun.
Dine at the CN Tower
At the time of it’s creation in 1976, Toronto’s CN tower was the World’s largest building standing at a huge 553 metres, the building has since been beaten to this elusive record but it is still an incredible building and one that you should try and visit. At the top of the tower there is a revolving restaurant and dining there is an absolute must. As you sit and spin you will have the greatest views possible of the city including the monstrous Niagara Falls. The food is fantastic in the restaurant and offers fusion style cuisine that has been inspired from all of the World. This is a great opportunity for you to dine in a type of restaurant that you really won’t find anywhere else in the World.
