Canada is a vast country that offers millions of opportunities. There are adventure sports, amazing food and beverages and magnificent scenery. Conquering all of these at least once in your life is a must-do. You cannot honestly leave this country without traveling its complete north and south coasts, taking on the world’s longest river in Canada-The Mackenzie River, camping in Banff National Park and having a few days in the Rocky Mountains.
Canada is a land of extreme beauty. First of all, it’s geographically located in North America and hence, a part of this continent. It’s quite far from many countries like the United States (around 3,921 km/2,438 mi), Italy (8,744 km/5,440 mi) and Japan (12,194 km/7,560 mi). Connecting the country to other world capitals over the Atlantic ocean is what helps Canada stay isolated — people living here just love their cozy life style. Besides that there’re plenty of things to discover in Canada. Whether you’re a nature lover or prefer urban culture; every traveler has different desires and would probably be satisfied exploring one or two places. Here are some must-visit places in Canada:
