It’s the Great White North, the beautiful land of delicious maple syrup, where everyone is polite, and their Prime Minister is kind of dreamy; so why wouldn’t you want to visit Canada? In this article, we’re going to go through some of the best places in Canada to visit.

Top tip: If you’re looking for flights to Canada, but they all seem a bit too expensive, check to see if it might be cheaper to get a flight with a layover in the US. However, be aware that in order to stop in the US, even for just a couple of hours while waiting for your connecting flight, you will need a US ESTA. Head to to learn more.

1. Whistler, British Columbia

If you enjoy snow sports, then head to Whistler to visit one of the largest ski resorts in North America. Here you can ski, snowshoe, sled, ride snowmobiles, and so much more. Also, should you want to venture out of the ski resort, you can immerse yourself in culture at the town’s many art museums.

2. Niagara Falls, Ontario

If you’d like to see something truly majestic while in Canada, then head to this natural wonder of the world and take a boat tour around and behind the waterfall. The surrounding city is also filled with activities to entertain the whole family, from MarineWorld to the many casinos.

3. St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador

This artists’ retreat features a range of brightly coloured houses, similar to the Painted Ladies of San Francisco. It’s the oldest city in the province, but it still has a cool modern vibe to it. When you’ve finished soaking in the atmosphere, you can learn about local culture and history at The Rooms or visit the Cape Spear Lighthouse.

4. Churchill, Manitoba

This small town on Hudson Bay is the polar bear capital of the world, so if you’d like to get close enough to see the furry creatures in the wild, this is your only opportunity. (Unless you head to the North Pole.) Tourists can also swim with Beluga whales or take a buggy tour of the tundra.

5. Bay Of Fundy, New Brunswick

This is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Canada because it offers the ‘walk on the ocean’ experience, where you quite literally walk on the ocean floor (at low tide). It’s also famous for having the highest tides in the world and is home to various species of whales.

6. Old Montreal, Quebec

If you want a taste of Canada at the turn of the 20th-Century, then head to the oldest area in Montreal to ride in a horse-drawn carriage and gaze at Victorian buildings. You can even take the Old Montreal food tour or relax at the Spa Scandinave.

If this sounds a bit sedate for you, why not leave the rest of the family at the spa and explore the underground city for yourself?

7. The Yukon, Northwest Territories

If you want to see the Northern Lights, then the Yukon offers some of the best views in the country. During the daytime, you can explore the Kluane National Park and the Takhini Hot Springs.

8. Okanagan Valley, British Columbia

If you’re a wine lover, then you won’t want to miss this beautiful valley. You can relax by the Okanagan Lake, tour the Kelowna region, visit the vineyards and wineries, or enjoy a nice glass of red if you’re over 18.

9. Tofino, Vancouver Island

For those of you looking for a beach holiday in Canada, look no further. Here you can explore famous beaches (i.e. Long Beach and Chesterman Beach), spend time in the water, or even kayak and camp at Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.

10. Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland and Labrador

Part of the Long Range Mountains, this national park is a must for nature lovers because of the incredible geological diversity. You can hike in the Long Range Mountains, walk through the Tablelands, or take a cruise of the Western Brook Pond.

This list has shown you only some of the many incredible places to visit in Canada, so why not get out there and explore for yourself?
