Canada is the land of the true north strong and free. It’s the world’s second-largest country by total area and its advanced economy is the eleventh largest in the world. As a Canadian, I have come to admire my country’s beauty and proudly represent all we have to offer. From coast to coast there are tons of hidden beauties just waiting to be discovered.
If you’re heading to Canada here’s what you should tick off your bucket list:
Go Camping in British Columbia
Camping out the middle of the wilderness surrounded by vast forests, wildlife and fresh air is the first thing to check off on my bucket list. British Columbia is world-renowned for its natural beauty and is well-known as Canada’s ultimate paradise. Whether you’re tenting or RV’ing you’ll fall in love with this province.
Walk Around Quebec City
This city is charming, romantic and historic. Dating back to 1608, this French-speaking city is influenced by Europe for its quaint cobblestone streets, stone buildings and small cafes. To best see the city walk through the Old Quebec where you can find tonnes of museums and old shops.
Canoe in Algonquin Provincial Park
If I had the chance to canoe anywhere in the country it would be in Algonquin. This provincial park boasts a reputation for its natural beauty, wildlife spotting, and amazing lakes. Located in Ontario in the middle of cottage country you’ll find absolute peace and relaxation here.
Ride up the CN Tower
The CN Tower is one of Canada’s most recognisable buildings. Take an elevator ride up to the observation deck to walk on the glass floor or dine at the 360 restaurant for the best view of the city.
Indulge in Maple Syrup
Canada produces 85 percent of the world’s supply of maple syrup. No visit to this country would be complete without indulging in this Canadian classic. Try an authentic Maple Syrup festival where you can taste test just maple candies, pancakes and different types of syrups.
Go Whale Watching
What better way to experience the country’s marine wildlife and natural beauty than to go whale-watching?! Whether you head to British Columbia or Nova Scotia you are sure to come across some beluga, minke or humpback whales on your journey.
Explore Lake Louise
Lake Louise is considered one of Canada’s most beautiful destinations. And I can sure see why! This glistening emerald lake in Alberta is surrounded by tall mountain peaks, the majestic Victoria Glacier and the famous Fairmount Chateau hotel.
Visit Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls is a classic Canadian destination that is not to be missed. The Falls are a magnificent sight to see for their sheer size and beauty. Visitors come from afar to see the great falls as it is one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
Take a Canadian Road Trip
Take a road trip from the East to the West Coast to fully immerse yourself in Canadian culture. Rent a caravan and drive across the provinces to see a different side of the country. Stop in Ottawa to see the Parliament Buildings or Green Gables House in Prince Edward Island.
Explore to the Arctic Circle
To visit to the Arctic Circle has been a dream of mine for some time. I’ve always wanted to explore one of the most northerly places on Earth and visit a place not many people get the chance to.
See the Northern Lights
Experience the Aurora Borealis in Northern Canada from late August to mid- April to catch the best glimpse of the magical lights. Red, green, purple and blue ribbons ripple across the sky as Mother Nature’s technicolour light show.
