Canada is full of adventure, beauty, and culture. There are so many places to visit in this beautiful country that it’s hard to just choose nine. However, nine were selected for this list, so look at some of the best places to visit in Canada.
Big Muddy Badlands and the Outlaw Trail
Unlike Banff’s bright and vibrant landscaping, this Saskatchewan landscape is deserted and dry yet full of character. You’ll feel like you’re back in the old West, the wild wild West that is while visiting this land and trail. There are so many activities you can partake in, including zip-lining or joining a cowboy camp. Maybe even check out some of the wildlife that inhibits the land here. Much of this land is desert-like. It also has a great lake that allows for kayaking and other fun water activities.
Manitoulin Island, Ontario
Located in Ontario, this island is situated on one of the five Great Lakes of North America and is the largest freshwater island lake on the planet (it even has over 100 inland lakes!) Of the inland lakes, Lake Manitou, Lake Kagawong, and Lake Mindemoya are the largest and allow guests to go out on a canoe, go for a swim or go sailing on.
Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, British Columbia
This location is a mere minutes ride away from downtown Vancouver. Aside from the exciting activities, Vancouver has to offer, this park in British Columbia allows you to see all that nature has to offer here. You can go birdwatching or even view the world from a bird size view from this fascinating bridge! The details on this bridge are delicately and intricately designed 100 feet above its forest floor. This isn’t for the faint are those were afraid of heights.
Whistler, British Columbia
Another resort town located in British Columbia is great for those who love the snow. You can go skiing and snowboarding or even bobsled at this location. During your downtime, when you’re not bungee jumping or partaking in many of the snow sports, you can look forward to some of the locally-owned shops to indulge in souvenir shopping. It is also home to a 230-foot waterfall in which this park gained its name.
Firmly located in Banff National Park, it is Canada’s largest and most renowned National Park. This small city is so beautiful that it is often referred to as a resort town. This is the place many like to go when they would like to visit the Rocky Mountains and experience all of its glory. This beautiful city offers plenty of outdoor activities for its visitors, including horseback riding tours and hikes up the Rocky Mountains. Travel to Lake Louise, which is a glacier lake that has plenty of unique, glorious colors. It is one of many hidden gems located in this resort town.
Fogo Island, Newfoundland, and Labrador
This remote island is situated off the northeast coast of Newfoundland. Fogo Island continues to gain popular momentum and attention, many thanks to the award-winning Fogo Island Inn. Also, its cool coastline, verdant green hills, and location in the popular Iceberg Alley allow Fogo Island to be known as one of Canada’s most photogenic places. Get ready to capture an Instagram ready photo wherever you go on Fogo Island!
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
This beautiful city is full of culture and vibrant arts. It is home to the national art center of the Confederation Center of the Arts, which occupies an entire city block downtown. You will find it difficult to fit in all the activities you plan on doing. You will find an outdoor amphitheater, an art gallery, and their humongous theater along with this block. This city is also well known for its exquisite dining options, especially its fresh seafood and potatoes. If you simply want to taste the best, head to Charlottetown for a tasty and joyous experience.
Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick
This destination is located at the Bay of Fundy, which is also one of North America’s seven wonders of the world! These rock formations were created by tidal erosion over 600 million years ago. The formations are like none you’ve ever seen before, with water colored by its clay and the dirt. There aren’t many outdoor activities or water sports you can try out here. This location is meant to be enjoyed and a time to relax and become one with nature.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
This Nova Scotia city is ideal for anyone looking to experience Canada’s Maritime Provinces. The waterfront in Halifax is a major tourist attraction for the city, especially during the summer months, with so many outdoor and water activities to partake in. If you want fun in the sun, you can have that here in Halifax or have fun touring their few historic buildings.
With a country so vastly unique, there are so many different opportunities to find great spots, whether they are hidden gems or well known around the world. It’s great for those who want to have mindless fun or want to have fun while learning about Canada’s history and culture. This list is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to some of the great places Canada has to offer.
