Top 10 Best Vacation Spots in Canada

Canada is a gold mine for those who are passionate about travelling and experiencing new places. Whether you love climbing mountains, conquering the surfing waves, walking quietly down a beach, feel awed by majestic waterfalls or seek to commune with whales, Canada is the place for you to be. Canada has many tourist attractions. While many tourists head to see famous spots in bigger cities, the country’s beauty lies in its natural features. Of the many awe-inspiring sights that Canada has to offer, the Northern Lights or the ‘Aurora Borealis’ is truly spectacular. Tourists can visit Churchill town settled on the shores of the Hudson Bay in Manitoba between December and March to catch Mother Nature’s extraordinary light show. The town is also known as the Polar Bear and Beluga Whale capital. For those who wish to catch a glimpse of the beats, a visit between late June and late August is advisable. For the whales, the perfect time to visit is from late June to late August.

Summer is an ideal time for the adventurous to take a trip to Cape Breton in Nova Scotia. The residents greet you by wishing you ‘Ciad Mile FĂ ilte’. This means ‘one hundred thousand welcomes’ in Gaelic. What could be more welcoming! The island boasts of a spectacular coast that is over 10,000 sq. km. Tourists can stay in cottages on top of cliffs in towns like Port Hood or Inverness and enjoy sports like scuba diving, watching whales and sailing. For those who are scared of staying on heights, a visit inland to Bras d’Or Lake region will be a wise choice as they can stay in cottages along the shores of a saltwater lake there. The Niagara Falls is another natural wonder that draws people to Canada. The massive, thunderous waterfall is located in Ontario. The falls comprises of the American Falls, the Horseshoe Falls and the smaller Bridal Veil Falls. Tourists can fly in as there are four airports an hour’s drive away from Niagara. It can also be reached via train and bus. And if you do visit, do not forget to take a trip on the ‘Maid of the Mist’ to see the fall really close.

The Canadian Rockies is a trip for those who want to enjoy the most breathtaking journey on earth. Unlike the American Rockies, the Canadian ones have sharp peaks covered in snow. There are also some beautiful, serene lakes in the vicinity to calm the spirits. Tourists can drive through Banff and Jasper national parks to get there. For those who want to enjoy the raw beauty of nature, a visit to the Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island should do the trick. It covers Long Beach, a sandy stretch of 40 kilometers, which is also a surfers’ delight. One can get there by car from Victoria or Nanaimo. But book early if you want to get into this popular spot. Another attraction on Vancouver Island is the Hot Spring Cove. Whale watchers can visit during March and April, for storm watchers the perfect period would be autumn or winters. It is accessible by plane and boat. If wildlife is your thing, a visit to Baffin Island is a must. It is the largest island in Canada that houses Inuit villages. You can spot whales, arctic fox, lemmings, polar bears, walrus, caribou and other wild life here. Do not forget to enjoy dog sledding and snowmobiling here. You can reach the island by air.
