Canada is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and this is not at all surprising because the beautiful North American country is home to some of the most wondrously spectacular views, interesting landmarks and exciting attractions on the planet. Whatever you’re into, you are sure to find something that fits the bill in Canada.
If you would like to visit Canada, you may first need to make an ETIAS application, which allows you entry into the country. You can visit etias.com for more information about this so that you can plan your holiday without a hitch.
In the meantime, here are some of Canada’s coolest destinations that you will not want to miss when you visit the country.
Sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean in British Columbia and the Coast Mountains, Vancouver is probably the coolest city in Vancouver, thanks to its hip nightlife, awe-inspiring natural landscapes and tourist destinations, but perhaps, its biggest and best attraction is Stanley Park, which covers acres and acres of land, including gardens, woodlands and green spaces that will help you get in touch with nature and take some great nature photos.
If you’re interested in Canada’s French heritage, you will not be disappointed by a trip to Quebec, which in many ways looks more like a typical quaint European town than a Canadian city, thanks to its charming architecture, French-speaking residents, and European history. Quebec City is home to many great attractions including the Place-Royale and the Citadel, but it also benefits from spectacular landscapes to take your breath away.
Canada’s capital, Ottawa is home to the country’s Parliament Hill, where you can see the changing of the guard every day in Summer. It is also home to the Rideau Canal, which freezes over to become the biggest ice skating rink in the planet during Canada’s winter months.
Banff National Park
You can find Banff National Park in the Canadian province of Alberta. The extremely popular national park is the first of several national parks in Canada and is also one of the biggest in the country. If you’re looking for mind-blowing natural scenery, Canadian wildlife, including grizzly bears, bison and bald eagle, and a relaxing getaway, you will want to make an effort to visit Banff.
Calgary is Alberta’s biggest city, which is located in the middle of the Canadian Rockies and the Canadian Prairies. It is popular for its sizeable metropolitan areas, where you can get good food, great company and anything else you would like, and for the Calgary Stampede – a huge rodeo event, which takes place over a period of 10 days in July, and which includes food and craft fairs, rodeos and chuckwagon races.
Whistler is lucky enough to be the home of two very impressive mountains – Blackcomb and Whistler. This is enough to bring tourists to the area in their droves. If you like alpine skiing or cozy mountain cabins that look out over the sea, Whistler is the Canadian destination for you.
Whatever your choice of destination, you are sure to be wowed by the Canadian way of life, its beautiful scenery, and its stunning wildlife. Enjoy your trip!
