Did you know that Canada is the second largest country in the world, in relation to its area on the map?
You would be foolish if you think that there is a lot of empty space in this nation though, as Canada is an excellent holiday destination that offers something for every type of tourist.
So book up your holidays to Canada, such as with My Canada Trips who are offering great deals to resorts spanning the east coast right across to the west coast for 2014, and take in these fantastic experiences:
Taste the glorious food of Canada
One of the great things about Canada is that when it comes to dinner, you have so many local, organic dishes to choose from.
You will be able to feast on fresh lobster in Nova Scotia, for example, or enjoy some delicious poutine while exploring the northern quadrant of Quebec. This is before we even get to the lip-licking buffalo tenderloin that is being served up on request across Alberta.
Discover natural wonder after natural wonder after natural wonder…
Nature lovers are bound to fall in love with Canada, thanks to the many natural scenes of beauty that are dotted across the country.
Of course, you surely know of Niagara Falls, but seeing and hearing it up close and in person will leave you much more astonished than that time it was featured in a movie or a TV commercial.
Then there are the expansive Rocky Mountains, which stretch as far as the eye can see, as well as more unique sights such as Nova Scotia’s Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Dinosaur Provincial Park, based a couple of hours south-east of Calgary.
Get the adrenaline pumping time and time again
We cannot complete a travel guide to Canada without making at least one mention about hockey. The sport is beloved across the country and you owe it to yourself to either head along to one of the competitive NHL games or give it a go and experience one of the nation’s pastimes for yourself.
This is just one way to get active across Canada, mind. There is white water rafting to be enjoyed along Squamish River in British Columbia, ice climbing to be pursued up the towering Yamnuska Mountain or – if you are up for the challenge – heli-skiing down one of British Colombia’s many snow-filled slopes.
