Ottawa is the capital of Canada and there are a wide variety of sights to see and things to do. I recommend you book a hotel and stay in Ottawa for a few days at least to fully experience the city. You will also find many large picturesque parks throughout the city which provide the perfect atmosphere to relax after busy day of visiting famous monuments and museums within the city. If you are going to stay in Ottawa for a while allow yourself to relax and just enjoy what the city has to offer you.




Le Pays De La Sagouine

Le Pays De La Sagouine is a small island located in New Brunswick. The island is connected to the mainland by a long wooden walkway. There is not much to do on the island but it is a beautiful spot to take pictures and relax. If you are traveling with your spouse I recommend visiting this island as it helps create a romantic atmosphere that both of you will remember for a very long time.




Sleeping Giant Provincial Park

The Sleeping Giant Provincial Park is a large area surrounding a rock structure that resembles a sleeping giant with arms crossed on its chest. Naturally, there are many legends explaining how the sleeping giant came to be. The legends surrounding the Sleeping Giant Park are quite interesting and you can read several different versions of the legend on flyers advertising the park. The park is riddled with manmade paths and wildlife – you can camp within the park as well.




Hopewell Rocks

Hopewell Rocks are many different peculiar rock formations that can only be visited during low tide. The rocks are very popular and there are many different formations for you to explore. You can have a lot of fun exploring the Hopewell Rocks with your family or friends. I recommend you arrive early otherwise it might be too crowded for you to be able to enjoy yourself. The rocks are located in Hopewell Cape in New Brunswick – it is a popular destination for tour buses.




Quebec City

You simply cannot visit Canada without passing through Quebec City. There are many different activities that you can participate in within Quebec. Additionally there are a lot of famous old buildings that you can pose in front of, a lot of restaurants to eat at, and a lot of historic sights to visit. Take your time to explore one of Canada’s most beautiful cities. It will take you a long time to see all the sights within Quebec so I recommend booking a hotel and staying for a few days in order to see all the popular touristic sights.





Toronto is the most popular city in Canada and it is often mistaken for the capital of the country. Toronto is famous for its annual film festivals and the CN Tower. Like most cities Toronto has many different restaurants, historic sights, and museums. However, the most notable touristic attraction of Toronto would be the CN Tower. If you are visiting Toronto you simply can’t without riding the elevator to the top of the tower and snapping pictures – a portion of the floor which is transparent.





Montreal is another large city in Canada that is known to be heavily influenced by the French. You can find a wide variety of French restaurants dotting the streets throughout the city. In fact, Montreal is famous for its spectacular cuisine – the best cuisine in all of Canada. If you feel like indulging in some delicious French cuisine Montreal is the place for you. Of course, there are several historic and museums to visit during your stay as well.





Vancouver is located in British Columbia and you can do practically everything in the city. There are many restaurants, historic sights, bars, nightclubs, and parks spread out throughout the city. You can also go skiing in the nearby mountains. The downside to visiting Vancouver is that it is usually quite cold as opposed to the cities which are located closer to the South of Canada.




Lake Louise

There are thousands of lakes sprinkled throughout Canada but Lake Louise attracts tourists from all parts of the globe. There is a hotel located next to the lake that is known to be packed all year round – try to book far in advance in you plan on staying at this hotel.
So if you are planning on visiting Canada I highly recommend that you pick a tour package that will let you visit at least a handful of the destinations mentioned throughout this article. Canada is a beautiful country but it is also very big so it is important to choose a convenient and fast method of transportation. Schedule your days accordingly and enjoy your vacation.
