Travel Guide
Canada showing mountains
Stretching the width of North America, this country is known for its natural beauty and welcoming people. Come for a visit, eh.

From the Bay of Fundy in the east to the rugged Pacific coastline of Vancouver Island in the west, Canada provides glorious outdoor sights. Tour the nation’s impressive scenery, sophisticated cities and peaceful countryside for a vacation you will remember forever.

In the east, the fictional home of Anne of Green Gables on Prince Edward Island will make the beloved young adult series come alive. In nearby Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, see the unusual tides of the Bay of Fundy that rise and fall up to 50 feet (16 meters) each day.

On the western coast, British Columbia has lovely harbors in Vancouver and Victoria, with whale watching, sunbathing and shoreline walks. These and other Canadian cities have eclectic neighborhoods with concentrations of artists and ethnic centers, including interesting Chinatowns.

Spread across the center of the country, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary and Edmonton are among the nation’s largest metropolitan areas. All have modern city centers with wonderful restaurants, shopping, museums and galleries. In addition, each has its unique personality, from old French customs to major league baseball to cowboy rodeos.

Canada’s mountainous regions offer superb opportunities for summer hiking and sightseeing and winter skiing. Visit Revelstoke and Whistler in British Columbia and Banff and Lake Louise in Alberta for some of the best Rocky Mountain slopes and views. In the east, Mont-Tremblant in Québec has excellent skiing in the Laurentian Mountains.

Head to the lakes regions in Manitoba and Saskatchewan for fishing and hunting. Travel north to Nunavut, the Northwest Territories and the Yukon to camp under the northern lights. Canada’s national and provincial parks cater to Canadian and international visitors with scenic trails and adventurous activities.

In Canada try panning for gold, taste maple syrup fresh from production or even go on a polar bear safari. Across the nation you’re likely to be greeted with a friendly welcome. Arrive anywhere and keep exploring the beautiful lands and waters of this great nation.
