The second largest country on earth, Canada is an epic travel destination filled with iconic places and friendly faces. Geographically diverse, Canada is comprised of mountainous, forest, coastal, arctic, maritime, prairie and desert areas. This tag explores all the unique things to do in Canada, from outdoor adventure, to family actives to where to eat and unique hotels that would be of interest to both tourists and locals looking to explore nearby. What you can do outdoors in Canada is dependent upon the seasons and this tag dives into winter activities such as downhill skiing and snowboarding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing and ice skating in regions like Banff National Park, BC, Quebec and Ontario. In summer, Canadians and visitors love go hiking – not just in the Rockies for epic mountain views and wildlife viewing. But you can also explore along the coastline, through forests (forest bathing is popular) or even walk along well developed city pathways. Canada’s National Parks and historic sites offer a variety of experiences depending on your interest level. This tag also examines regional Canadian food and the best restaurants to eat at. City breaks are becoming more popular – not just in Vancouver and Montreal, but across the country you’ll find family-friendly attractions from zoos to historical villages, theme and adventure parks.
