Canada is the second largest country in the world, with numerous attractions for visitors to see. There are so many interesting travel destinations, stretching from the west coast of British Columbia with the beautiful Rocky Mountains, all the way to east coast that boasts the Bay of Fundy with the largest tides in the world.

The holiday choices available to people visiting Canada vary widely, and are often influenced by life style. Many prefer to see the great outdoors, while others are more interested in a vibrant, urban night life. Of course, some want the best of both worlds.

We have compiled the following list of popular visitor to Canada destinations. Enjoy! Rocky Mountains

The Rocky Mountains

The Canadian Rocky Mountains are a relatively young mountain range that is located in beautiful British Columbia and southern Alberta. There is an abundance of wild life to see, along with thousands of hiking trails for sightseers.

There are several national parks in the mountains that are popular tourist destinations (for visitors and Canadians alike). Banff National Park, the oldest and most popular of these parks, is located in southern Alberta, roughly 150 km west of Calgary. It includes luxurious villas for rent along with a phenomenal view and vibrant night life.

Another popular destination is Jasper National Park, the largest of all the Rocky Mountain parks. Just some of Jasper’s sights to see are glaciers, hot springs, lakes and event waterfalls. Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is one of the hottest Canadian tourist destinations. The falls are situated in southern Ontario, right on the Canada-U.S. border. There are two major falls: the American Falls (on the American side); and Horseshoe Falls (on the Canadian side). The larger of the two is Horseshoe Falls. An average of 4 million cubic feet of water flows over the falls every minute, creating water vapour for miles around. If you have not seen this, it is truly an amazing sight to behold.

There are also other sights to see in the area, such as the vineyards and gorgeous scenery of Niagara-On-The-Lake.

For the night-life oriented visitors, there is also a world class casino in Niagara Falls as well. Bay of Fundy

Bay of Fundy

The Bay of Fundy is located in eastern Canada, in between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. The bay’s biggest claim to fame is the highest tidal range in the world. There are two daily tidal movements, and on average there is a tidal change of around 45 feet. However, some locations have seen movements up to 60 feet or higher, depending on the time of year.

Vacationing along the shores of the Bay of Fundy is an amazing experience. If you choose to stay on a small bay that is off of the Bay of Fundy (a bay off of the large bay) then you will see lots of water at high tide, and almost no water at all during low tide!

During low tide many adventurous souls venture out onto the mud flats, looking for oysters for their evening meal. Quebec City

Old Quebec City

Quebec City is the capital of Quebec, a French-speaking province in Canada. Quebec City is one of the oldest cities in North America, originally founded by the explorer Jacques Cartier in 1535.

The "old city" or "old Quebec" is the actually the older, original town in Quebec City that is surrounded by ramparts, used for fortification purposes when the settlement was built.

Quebec City has some incredible architecture, with a distinctive European feel to it.

It has a great night life, as well as numerous events such as the famous Winter Carnival and Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day festivities. There are also over 30 historical sites in Quebec City to see. Baffin Island

Baffin Island

Baffin Island is Canada’s largest island, and lies between Greenland and the Canadian mainland, within the territory of Nunavut.

Baffin Island is not for those seeking out an exciting night life: however, it is incredibly pristine, and appeals to those travelers who want to get off of the beaten path and really see some incredible nature scenery.

There is lots of wildlife such as walrus, whales, caribou, polar bear, arctic fox, arctic wolves and seals. There are occasional Inuit villages, with native Canadians who respect and live off of the land.
