From awe-inspiring landscapes with an abundance of natural wonders to its cities rich in tradition and outstanding modern architecture – Canada really has it all. Discover our selection of destinations to visit during your holidays in Canada:

Banff National Park

Banff became Canada’s first national park in 1885 to protect its natural hot springs. Along the spectacular drive to the town of Banff, you can stop for a snow-coach ride on the Athabasca Glacier!

Niagara Falls

Located on the Canada-US border, Niagara Falls is a natural beauty comprised of three waterfalls: American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls. They converge and rise above a 52 meter cliff, cascading into the rushing river below and creating the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world, so it’s no wonder they are used as a source of hydroelectric energy.


Few cities have a skyline that rivals Toronto’s, which is even more striking from the pretty offshore islands that encircle the harbour. Highlights of this cosmopolitan city include the Old and New CN Tower City Hall, Casa Loma, St. Lawrence Market, Flatiron Building, Chinatown and more.

thousand islands

The Thousand Islands are an archipelago of 1,864 islands that straddle the Canada-US border in the St. Lawrence River as it exits Lake Ontario. Take a boat trip and relax aboard the cruise while admiring the scenic riverfront with its many summer residences and abundant wildlife.


The largest city in the province of Quebec in Canada and the second largest French-speaking city in the world. Founded by French Catholic settlers in 1642, Montreal has resolutely retained its French language and culture. In fact, with the French signs, cobblestone streets, and wrought-iron balcony railings of the Old Town, you might feel like you’re in France.

Mount Robson

The tallest mountain in the Canadian Rockies is located in the impressive Mount Robson Park, where you’ll also find glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons, and wildlife.


The capital of British Columbia sits in a stunning coastal location and has a beautiful mountainous backdrop. Visit the 1,001-acre Stanley Park with its collection of totem poles, the iconic Canada Place, an architectural landmark famous for its ship-like appearance, and discover historic Gastown, the oldest part of the city.

Now that you know the places to see, you can now start planning your trip to Canada! Discover the Travel Department Vacations in Western Canada and the Rockies or take their Canada Maple Leaf Trail Tour.
