Canada Travel Guide

Canada is the second largest country in the world and the largest in North America. It is a North American country consisting of ten provinces and three territories. Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west and northward into the Arctic Ocean. Renowned worldwide for its vast, untouched landscape, its unique blend of cultures and multifaceted history, Canada is a major tourist destination and one of the world's wealthiest countries. Canada is one of the most exciting travel destinations in the world. It has many interesting cities, like Toronto, North Vancouver, Montreal or Halifax. But also some of the most impressive nature, which is great for outdoor activities, like hiking, skiing, rafting and fishing.

Canada boasts a wide, diverse culture, which is celebrated with pride, and there is simply no way to see everything in one trip. Full of surprises, it is true to say that Canada is simply the one of the most astonishingly beautiful countries in the world.

Trying to simplify the climate of Canada is impossible, given the vast area that this country occupies. Temperatures range from plus 40 C in summer to minus 40 C in the winter. Much of southern Ontario has a climate similar to the northeastern United States. On the other hand, Iqaluit, the capital of Nunavut, is just south of the Arctic Circle and remains very cold except for the months of July and August. However, as most of the Canadian population resides within a few hundred kilometres of Canada's border with the United States visitors to most cities will most likely not have to endure the weather that accompanies a trip to the northern territories. In fact, summers can be hot in parts of Canada.

Visiting Canada all in one trip is a massive undertaking. Over 5000 kilometres separate St. John's, Newfoundland from Victoria, British Columbia. To drive from one end of the country could take 7–10 days or more without stopping to sight see on the way, so make sure you plan your trip in advance.

Atlantic Provinces

This region is well known for unique accents, the origin of the Acadian culture, outstanding natural beauty (particularly around coastal areas), the historic beauty of Halifax (Nova Scotia), and a huge fishing and shipping industry.

Qubec

When one thinks of this region, one of the first things is usually 'French'. Quebec is one of the most unique regions in Canada. Originally settled as part of New France, this region is very much culturally French–Canadian and is known for great cultural sites like Quebec City's Winter Festival, Montreal's grand classic architecture, and of course, Maple syrup and the Poutine – two of the most commonly known things in Canadian cuisine. Montreal is also the second largest French speaking city in the world.

Ontario

Canada's largest province by population, it has endless opportunities of things to see and/or do. From Canada's largest metropolis (Toronto) to the national bi–lingual capital (Ottawa) to glitzy Niagara Falls, to the vast wilderness of Northern Ontario and the Great Lakes, Ontario is full of almost everything that represents Canada.

Prairies

From the east, this region starts off with rocky terrain and flat farmland, and as one travels westward, eventually ends up at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. This region is one of the fastest growing in Canada, and is well known for mountain resorts like Banff and Canmore. The major cities here are Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Calgary and each offer an array of things to do.

British Columbia

Vancouver is the heart of British Columbia. It is perhaps one of the most liberal and culturally diverse cities in North America. British Columbia is one of the most beautiful regions in Canada, both for those who are looking for nature excursions and those who kick it in the city.

The North

This is where Canada's territories reside. They are some of the most remote regions on Earth, which means plenty of nature to observe. The vast wilderness calls this region home with extremely extraordinary animals and vast landscapes. It is also home to the unique Inuit (native group) culture and as well as the First Nations and is rich in natural resources.

Things to See and Do

Bear Watching, Whale Watching and Wildlife Viewing
In Manitoba, Churchill is known for its Polar Bears and Belugas and Riding Mountain National Park and adjacent Parkland area for its abundant population of Black Bears that vary in color from blond, cinnamon and chocolate to black. Riding Mountain National Park is known for its "watchable" wildlife.

Traditional Foods

English Canadians may be mystified if you ask where you can get Canadian food. Although you will find some regional specialties, especially at the Eastern and Western edges of the country, in English Canada there isn't much food known as "Canadian" except for maple syrup, nanaimo bars (chocolate–topped no–bake squares with custard or vanilla butter filling and crumb base), buttertarts (tarts made with butter, sugar and eggs), beaver tails (fried dough topped with icing sugar), fiddleheads (curled heads of young ferns), and a few other examples. French–Canadian cuisine is distinctive and includes such specialties as tourtire, a meat pie dish that dates back to the founding of Quebec in the 1600s, cipaille (meat and vegetable pie), cretons (mince of pork drippings), ragot de pattes (pigs' feet stew), plorine (pork pie), oreilles de Christ (fried larding bacon), poutine, a dish consisting of French fries, cheese curds and gravy (its popularity has spread across the country and can be found from coast to coast), croquignoles (home–made doughnuts cooked in shortening), tarte la farlouche (pie made of raisins, flour and molasses), tarte au sucre (sugar pie), and numerous cheeses and maple syrup products. Staples include baked beans, peas and ham.
