Enjoy my guide to some of my top highlights that you can find across Canada.
The City of Toronto
Toronto is Canada’s largest city, and that’s probably what the city is best known for.
It’s not the capital of Canada, but there is everything you would expect from a cultural centre of the world to be found in this city.
The food scene is increddible, from China town to Cuban food In Roncesvalles, lots of dishes can be explored in Toronto. Also Toronto has a great bar scene to enjoy and gather a taste of local life. Head to the Wayne Gretzky bar to be pay homage to one of Canadas most beloved hockey player.
For an authentic experience, grab a ticket to a Blue Jays game at the Rogers centre, a popular past time for many locals who love to cheer on the home team.
Also no visit to Toronto would be complete without a journey to the top of the CN tower, so why not get yourself up there and test your nerves with heights.
Also, you might not know this but you can easily take a day trip down to Niagra Falls from Toronto, and squeeze in a thrilling encounter with nature in to your city break.
Quebec is the French side of Canada through and through. It’s the largest province in Canada, and its capital Quebec City is on the country’s east coast. It plays host to some of the most beautiful countryside in Canada.
As one of the oldest settlements in North America, you can find many French speaking people.
Quebec is home to the Chateau Frontenac, a 19th century hotel that dominates the city’s skyline and makes such a beautiful backdrop for photos. Quebec also contains Montreal which makes for another great city break. T
here are also many tiny incredibly picturesque towns, ski resorts, and you can see loads of moose everywhere too.
Head to the Yukon
Canada’s north west corner is a beautiful and barren expanse of peaks, wildlife and adventure.
The Yukon is the home to the highest mountain in Canada, Mount Logan. This mountain is 5,959m of altitude and majestic beauty, and is home to all sorts of animals and plantlife.
Active adventures will love paddling in the in the huge lakes or rivers in canoes and kayaks.
You can also ride and do walking trails, you and ski and snowboard, or have a go at ice climbing and dog sledding.
Halifax and Nova Scotia
Novia Scotia is one of the most beautiful provinces in Canada, and Halifax makes for a great starting point for any visitor.
You can walk along the docks, take a visit to the Alexander Keiths brewery, or enjoy fresh seafood with a lobster sandwich.
A trip to the citadel on the hill is always a good place to start.
Take a visit to Lunenburg – a gorgeous community with a strong seafaring heritage.
The Cabot Trail is one of the most scenic drives in Canada. Another thing you can do is make a trip to Peggy’s Cove to see one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world.
The Canadian Rockies
When you’re in the Rockies it’s time to get your hiking boots on and explore. This mountain range spans British Columbia and Alberta, and when you see it for yourself you’ll know why these mountains have such a worldwide reputation.
Drive along the stunning Icefields Parkway – one of the most scenic drives on earth. With breathtaking scenery and some of the highest mountain peaks in Canada, this is a region of Canada that is ideal for intrepid explorers.
If you’re up for a bit of skiing there are some great ski resorts there too.
Banff is one that that is definitely worth checking out when you’re feeling the urge to grab your skis.
When you’re in the mountains you’ve got to get yourself to Whistler. It’s one of North America’s largest and most popular ski resorts.
Whistler hosted the Winter Olympics in 2010, and boasts an impressive 8,000 acres of pistes and 1,610m of vertical.
The ski area spans across two mountains – Whistler and Blackcomb. This region is lucky to have a long snow season from November to May, and the snowfall is often impressive and consistent too.
Whistler also has some great mountain biking and hiking opportunities for the summer months.
