Tourism in Canada
Canada provides the traveller with an array of sights and activities, as only a country so large and varied can. The metropolitan centres of Montreal and Toronto offer great cuisine, shopping and places to drink, and are packed with festivals throughout the year. The older cities of St John’s and Quebec offer historic sites such as Quebec’s Le Chateau Frontenac. The grand scale of Canada’s landscape offers hiking, hunting and skiing amidst the most beautiful scenery. One can embrace the many winter sports on offer in the mountains at Banff, Whistler and Kicking Horse. The Queen Charlotte Islands boast a unique environment which supports such unusual flora and fauna that they are known as ‘Canada’s Galapagos’. The old-growth rainforests here are full of some of the world’s largest spruce and cedar trees, as well as bald eagles and bears.
