    Natural Attractions and Parks

    Canadian Rockies: Known as one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, the Canadian Rockies make up the second half of the North American Rockies in the U.S.. Unlike the 12,000 foot peaks of its sister, the tree lines here are much lower. Tourists are amazed by the beautiful snow-capped peaks, crystal lakes and diverse wildlife.
    Yoho National Park: A whole trip could be spent at Yoho National Park. Check out Takkakaw Falls. Translated as “Magnificent Falls,” the water is fed from the Daily Glacier, a part of Waputik Icefield. It is particularly beautiful in late spring after the heavy snow melts.
    Georgian Bay: Known for its white pine forests and jagged bedrock, Georgian Bay is located in the north east section of Lake Huron in Ontario. Beautiful beaches line it to the south, making it a perfect choice for hiking and chilling near the water on the same day.
    Niagara Falls: A trip to Canada would not be complete without a visit to this incredible group of waterfalls. Crossing both the United States and Canada, one can find incredible views of rushing waterfalls. Visit via the visitor center or take a boat tour!
    Stanley Park: Canada has some beautiful parks, with Stanley Park topping the list in beauty and fun. This is a wide-spread urban park. It includes benches for picnics, a beach seawall, scenic trails and water features for the whole family.
    Jasper National Park: For a more laid-back mountain experience, consider visiting Jasper. Just as beautiful as some of its bigger mountain brothers and sisters, Jasper National Park is the perfect stop for wildlife, trails, hiking and views of beautiful mountain peaks. The town is full of friendly people and fine eateries.
    Banff National Park: If you were to visit one place in Canada, Banff would be it. Banff is the oldest national park in Canada, having been established in the Rocky Mountains in 1885. Located between Calgary and Alberta, you can expect to find glaciers, densely populated forest, ice fields and a wide variety of wildlife and plants. A popular place to stay is the Banff Springs Hotel and Lake Louise Chalet. Many folk choose to take train rides along the mountain for breathtaking views of the country.
    Toronto Islands: This chain of islands is located south of Toronto’s downtown. With bridges and pathways connecting them all, this is a fun destination for shopping, eating, bike riding and loads of entertainment from music to street fairs.
