10 Best Places to Visit in Canada

Canada is a country in North America. Awe-inspiring scenery, vibrant cities, and a welcoming atmosphere all make Canada a popular tourist destination.

Here’s a look at the best places to visit in Canada.

Cape Breton Island

Cape Breton Island is an island on the Atlantic coast of North America and part of the province of Nova Scotia, Canada.

The 10,311 km² island accounts for 18.7% of Nova Scotia’s total area. Although the island is physically separated from the Nova Scotia peninsula by the Strait of Canso, the 1,385 m long rock-fill Canso Causeway connects it to mainland Nova Scotia.

Montreal

Montreal is the second-most populous city in Canada and most populous city in the Canadian province of Quebec.

Founded in 1642 as Ville-Marie, or “City of Mary”, it is named after Mount Royal, the triple-peaked hill around which the early city of Ville-Marie is built. The city is centred on the Island of Montreal, which obtained its name from the same origin as the city, and a few much smaller peripheral islands, the largest of which is Île Bizard.

The city is 196 km (122 mi) east of the national capital Ottawa, and 258 km (160 mi) southwest of the provincial capital, Quebec City.

Whistler

Whistler is a resort municipality in Squamish-Lillooet Regional District, British Columbia, Canada. It is located in the southern Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains, approximately 125 km (78 mi) north of Vancouver and 36 km (22 mi) south of Pemberton.

Over two million people visit Whistler annually, primarily for alpine skiing and snowboarding and, in the summer, mountain biking at Whistler Blackcomb.

Its pedestrian village has won numerous design awards, and Whistler has been voted among the top destinations in North America by major ski magazines since the mid-1990s.

Vancouver Island

Vancouver Island is an island in the northeastern Pacific Ocean and part of the Canadian province of British Columbia.

The island is 456 km (283 mi) in length, 100 km (62 mi) in width at its widest point, and 32,134 km2 (12,407 sq mi) in area. The island is the largest by area and the most populous along the west coasts of the Americas.

This area has one of the warmest climates in Canada, and since the mid-1990s has been mild enough in a few areas to grow Mediterranean crops such as olives and lemons.

In recent years the government of British Columbia has engaged in an advertising program to draw more tourists to beach resorts in places such as Tofino and Ucluelet.

Sport fishing, whale watching, hiking, scuba diving, surfing, and skiing are just a few things for which tourists visit Vancouver Island.

Visitors also come to see Victoria’s 19th-century architecture, and the many villages which line the coast such as Cowichan Bay, Chemainus, and Qualicum Beach.

Quebec City

Quebec City, officially Québec, is the capital city of the Canadian province of Quebec.

It has a humid continental climate with warm summers coupled with cold and snowy winters. This area was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985 as the “Historic District of Old Québec”.

Toronto

Toronto is the capital city of the Canadian province of Ontario. it is the most populous city in Canada and the fourth most populous city in North America.

Churchill

Churchill is a town in northern Manitoba, Canada, on the west shore of Hudson Bay, roughly 140 km (87 mi) from the Manitoba–Nunavut border.

It is most famous for the many polar bears that move toward the shore from inland in the autumn, leading to the nickname “Polar Bear Capital of the World” that has benefited its burgeoning tourism industry.

Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is a group of three waterfalls at the southern end of Niagara Gorge, spanning the border between the province of Ontario in Canada and the state of New York in the United States.

The largest of the three is Horseshoe Falls, which straddles the international border of the two countrie. It is also known as the Canadian Falls.

The smaller American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls lie within the United States.

Vancouver

Vancouver is a major city in western Canada, located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia. It is the third-largest metropolitan area in Canada.

Banff National Park

Banff National Park is Canada’s oldest national park, established in 1885 as Rocky Mountains Park.

Located in Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, 110–180 kilometres (68–112 mi) west of Calgary, Banff encompasses 6,641 square kilometres (2,564 sq mi) of mountainous terrain, with many glaciers and ice fields, dense coniferous forest, and alpine landscapes.
