Beautiful Tourist Places in Canada

Making a trip to the home of bears, ice hockey and Franco-American hybrids? Then make sure you don’t miss this little lot out of your itinerary. We present the top ten tourist spots in Canada.

1. The Canadian Rockies

The Canadian Rockies comprise the Canadian segment of the North American Rocky Mountains range. This natural beauty spot houses five national parks, four of which (Banff, Jasper, Kootenay and Yoho) make up the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage site, and it’s easy to see why. Snap-happy tourists will be spoilt for choice with stunning landscapes comprising peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons and caves. Better take a spare memory card.

2. Niagara Falls

The Niagara Falls are voluminous waterfalls on the Niagara River, straddling the border between Ontario and New York.  On the Canadian side, Queen Victoria Park offers platforms with spectacular views of the falls, and underground walkways that lead into observation rooms which give the illusion of being within the falling waters. The observation deck of the nearby Skylon Tower offers the best birds-eye view of the Falls – not one for the faint-hearted!

3. Pacific Rim National Park
