Like a lot of travellers, you may have been fascinated with the idea of visiting Canada for a long time. This is a large and diverse country, where an adventurous person can have all kinds of incredible experiences. As you know, a big trip is never cheap. To make sure you get the most out of this amazing country, I’ve put together some suggestions for Canadian holiday destinations.
First of all, Ontario. This is a province in the south-east of the country, bordering the US. It’s the home of the nation’s capital, Ottawa, but if you’re planning on seeing a city in Ontario it has to be Toronto. Many travellers call this metropolis a cleaner, less crowded New York. The downtown area is full of towering skyscrapers, including the internationally famous CN Tower. You’ll be able to find glamorous shopping areas in Yorkville, and intriguing, bohemian venues in Queen Street West. If you’re in the area, you should also try to see Niagara Falls. This holds the record for the highest flow rate out of any waterfall in the world, and aside from that boasts some really spectacular views!
On the other side of the country, you have British Columbia. While no two areas of Canada are the same, BC can offer you sights and experiences which will rival any in Ontario. I strongly recommend staying in Vancouver. This city lies on the west coast of the country, and boasts one of the most cosmopolitan populations anywhere in north America. Here, you’ll be spoiled for choice with the huge selection of restaurants and shopping districts. A distinct chic lifestyle thrives in Vancouver. This, along with its reputation for health-conscious eating, earned it the nickname “Hollywood north”. If you’re not all that into exploring cities, then don’t worry! Vancouver is surrounded by natural beauty, with gorgeous beaches on one side and breath-taking mountains on the other. Whatever your tastes, there’ll be something here for you.
If you want to go to Canada simply for the amazing Skiing they have to offer, then Whistler is the place for you. This may be the most famous ski resort in north America. It was certainly prominent enough to host the 2010 winter Olympics! The area used for slopes is massive, boasting 8,000 acres of pistes. This will certainly be an attractive factor if you’re sick of cramped, slow-moving European resorts. Since the 2010 Olympics, millions of dollars have been spent on improving and expanding both the slopes and town. This could be the perfect place for a traveller looking to emigrate, and take a ski instructor course Canada. As great as the skiing is, remember to take a few pictures of the gorgeous scenery!
After reading this, you might have fallen in love with Canada already. Don’t stop at these suggestions though! Canada is the second largest country on earth, and there are so many experiences to be had. Whether you want glamorous city life or historical intrigue, Canada has it. Do some more research, and I’m sure you’ll find the right spot for you!
