Things to do in Canada: Activities, Excursions, Day Trips, and Tours
National Parks in Canada are not to be missed. From the coastline of British Columbia to the Canadian Rockies and to the long stretches of coast in the east, Canada's landscape is huge and diverse. Hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking, boating, fishing, and more are available to anyone who wants to get a firsthand look at the beautiful natural scenery.
The cities in Canada are some of the best in the world, too. Many have a diverse culture and history from the time of the Native Americans to French and English settlers. Castles, fortresses, old hotels, markets, and old town city streets await you. Cities are filled with art museums, music, world-class restaurants, shopping, and well-kept parks. Any number of walking tours (or Segway tours) are available in most cities as a great way to get a lay of the land before diving into each city's unique character.
Skiing and other winter sports are also very popular given Canada's northern latitude. From Whistler to the Canadian Rockies to the mountains of the eastern side, winter sports are accessible and affordable.
Geographically, Canada is one of the largest countries in the world. With all of this land and a relatively low population density, this huge country has a lot of natural area to explore. From the beautiful western coast of British Columbia to the eastern shores of Nova Scotia and Labrador, Canada offers a lot in between. But don't miss it's world class cities, either. Amazing food and a rich history is on display in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, Halifax, and all of the other friendly and fun cities in Canada.
