Canada attracts a huge number of international tourists, with over 20 million visitors per year recorded in recent years. There are attractions of all different types in Canada, so whether you are going on a family holiday, a sightseeing trip, or even a sports/active holiday, then it is a great destination. If you are contemplating a trip to Canada, then here are some of the top attractions that you might be interested in:
The famous Niagara Falls is a big hit with tourists visiting Canada and given its close proximity to the US border and reasonable distance from New York, a trip to Niagara Falls can be combined with a trip to the US. Watersports enthusiasts can kayak along the Niagara River, or go on a Jet boat tour.
If you are planning on visiting Canada, it is worth noting that you will need an eTA Canada visa, whilst visiting New York would require the US ESTA. It is important that you give enough time (it is recommended to apply a few weeks before your trip) to apply for Canadian travel visa as it can sometimes take a while to process.
Quebec City is one of the most stunning places to visit in Canada, with Rue du Petit Champlain being one of the most fascinating destinations in this part of the world. The beautiful architecture and historic charm of Quebec City are the main reasons so many people pay the city a visit.
As far as a city break goes, it is hard to top a visit to Vancouver. As a coastal city, Vancouver is quite a contrast to many other cities around Canada and top attractions include Stanley Park, Granville Island, the Capilano Suspension Bridge and Gastown. It is also not too far from Seattle, so you could always combine the two places on your visit.
The ultimate destination for the avid skier, Whistler is a breath-taking area that is famous for being a ski resort town and it is a former host to the Winter Olympics. Even if you don’t fancy skiing or snowboarding, this part of Canada is so picturesque that it is certainly worth a visit. If you are keen on water sports then there are loads of fun activities in Whistler such as rafting and kayaking, whilst it is also a top destination for anglers.
