The Best Things to Do in Canada
Explore the East Coast Trail
Bring your camera (or make sure your smartphone is charged) since the East Coast Trail offers some spectacular vistas. You’ll discover a wide selection of nature hiking and walking trails from simple to advanced that take you past towering cliffs, rock arches, fjords, sea stacks, and the Sprout, a wave-driven freshwater geyser, depending on how much effort you choose to put in. With 338 miles of established and undeveloped East Coast Trail, choosing the ideal route should not be too difficult.
Go Back in Time in Old Montreal
Isn’t it lovely architecture? Check. Isn’t there a plethora of historic structures? Also, double-check. You have a recipe for a multidimensional experience when you combine an ultra-charming, yet laid-back attitude, quaint cafés, and marketplaces. As a result, everybody visiting Montreal should pay a visit to Old Montreal. Simply strolling around the picturesque cobblestone alleys, snapping photos, and people-watching is a rewarding activity in and of itself, and when you need a break, there are plenty of taverns, restaurants, and pubs to choose from.
Eat Your Way Though St. Lawrence Market
Do you consider yourself to be a foodie? Or perhaps you’re simply hungry. Make your way to the city’s largest market if you chance to be in Toronto—a it’s must-see on any trip to the city. National Geographic named the market the finest food market in the world. Over 120 specialised food vendors sell everything from fresh fruit and baked products to prepared dishes, dairy, meat, and seafood at the South Market. Spend a couple of hours carefully soaking in the sights and scents while filling up on (and sampling) local items.
Stop by Little Limestone Lake
You may not expect to discover a body of water with the same hues as those found in the Caribbean in Manitoba, but Little Limestone Lake is worth the journey just for the colours. This lake, located about 275 miles north of Winnipeg, is the world’s largest and finest marl lake. Marl is a calcium carbonate-rich deposit that forms calcite and separates from the water when temperatures rise. Crystals are formed as a result of this procedure, giving the finished product a turquoise colour. When the water is chilled, the calcite dissolves and the water becomes crystal clear. Over the course of a single day, the colour of Little Limestone Lake may change from a light blue-grey to a vivid aquamarine to a sky blue.
Browse the Art Gallery of Ontario
Wandering around the light-filled Art Gallery of Ontario, whether the permanent collection or a special show, never gets old, whether you consider yourself an art connoisseur or simply enjoy spending time in galleries when you travel. The AGO is one of North America’s major art museums, with over 90,000 works and collections of Canadian, European, modern, and photographic art. The AGO’s status as a must-see cultural institution was confirmed in 2008 with a significant extension designed by Frank Gehry.
Spend Time in Prince Edward Island National Park
Prince Edward Island National Park is a true Canadian gem, whether you’re an energetic tourist seeking for exciting things to do outside or simply want to relax on the beach. The park, which is located on the province’s north shore, has several gorgeous white and red sand beaches that are perfect for swimming. You may also explore the area by kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard. Hiking paths totaling approximately 30 miles are available to visitors. Look for one of the park’s renowned “Red Chairs,” which may be found at various views across the park.
Visit Pond Inlet
Pond Inlet, located in Nunavut, is a great location to go if you’ve ever wanted to see the “unicorn of the sea,” also known as the narwhal — those strange creatures with long tusks projecting from their heads. Narwhals in large pods frequent the region, so there are numerous opportunities to see them. Pond Inlet is also bordered by mountain ranges and is located among picturesque fiords, glaciers, and icebergs. Beluga and orca whales, ringed and harp seals, caribou, arctic foxes, and wolves are all possible sightings.
