Canada is full of amazing places to visit. Here are our favourites.

Niagara Falls

The famous Horseshoe Falls are located within the small town of Niagara Falls, on the border between Canada and the United States. More than 6.8 million liters of water go over the falls every second across a length of 675 m and height of 54 m. It's incredible!

Chutes du Niagara

Canadian Rockies

Glaciers, spectacular waterfalls, turquoise lakes, yellow aspens, bighorn sheep climbing to the top of the Bow Range—the sights are never ending! The Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are postcard worthy!

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in Vancouver

With its wooden suspension bridges clinging to the granite cliff, CLIFFWALK offers you a bird's eye view of the misty evergreen forest and the raging waters below.

Northern Lights

In Canada's far north, landscapes are further embellished by the aurora borealis. The incredible streaks of green, purple, and yellow illuminate the sky, especially around the equinox and close to midnight. Share this magical moment with family or friends.

Snow-Covered Gaspésie

Quebec's Gaspé Peninsula reveals a landscape dotted with mountains, forests, cliffs, and charming seaside villages. In winter, a thick blanket of snow covers the entire region. Absolutely beautiful!

Yukon's Glaciers

The Tatshenshini River flows through the Yukon territory and the province of British Columbia in western Canada, close to Alaska. During a rafting expedition, not only can you see icebergs, but you may also catch a glimpse of grizzly bears and bald eagles.

Bay of Fundy

At Hopewell Rocks, colossal monoliths shaped like flowerpots in New Brunswick, you can observe the rise and fall of the highest tides in the world. You can stroll around the rocks at low tide or take in the view from a kayak at high tide.

Prince Albert National Park

In Saskatchewan, the heart of the Canadian Prairies, Prince Albert National Park offers visitors 3,874 km2 of unique landscapes and numerous forest lakes. Near the Sturgeon River, you'll have the opportunity to see one of the few bison populations still living in their natural habitat in Canada.

Miscou Island

Featuring a majestic lighthouse keeping watch over inhabitants like a benevolent giant, this New Brunswick island will charm you with its relaxing beaches, enchanting trails and vast peat bogs that turn scarlet red in the fall.
