Reasons Why You Must Visit Canada

When you say "Canada" to a Filipino, I think the first thing that will come to their mind is Snow, Snow and Cold! Very cold and more Snow. That’s majority of Canada during the winter, but Canada has way more to offer.

The first thing you need to know is that Canada is incredibly diverse and pretty huge.

How huge, you ask?

Canada extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific in total of 9.985 million km2. That’s just something you can’t explore in a single lifetime, so I decided to help you and made this list of top reasons why you need to visit and experience the beauty of Canada.

It’s really hard to know where to begin and ranked them so this list is not in any particular order.

Since we don’t have snow in the Philippines, of course we want to experience this winter wonder land. I get it, it’s not for those who are sensitive to cold. Specially for those who already wear jackets during January and February in PH. But snow is truly awesome!

It covers everything like a fluffy white blanket and makes for a Instagram-able post. Snow is also better than rain because you won’t get as soaked, and you can do activities in it, like skiing, throwing snowballs or simply make a snow angel.

The mountains

The mountains here just offers a different type of view. Even from the mountains near you, you'll definitely get an awesome experience.

Get up close and personal with a Grizzly bear

I don't know if there's even a single bear in the zoos in Asia. Anyway, if you have seen bears before, it's nothing compared with seeing a Grizzly Bear in it's natural habitat. The best place to see these magnificent beasts is in Western Canada, where you can stay at Knight Inlet Lodge. If you want to see the bears fishing for salmon, the best months to go are August to September.

Watch Polar Bears in Churchill

Talking about bears, don't also miss the chance to see one of Canada's most famous residents, the Polar Bear!  Experience this apex predator up close in Canada's arctic.

Well I'm not trying to scare you or anything so maybe we move to the next safer attraction.

See the Northern Lights

Imagine this view just outside your window during your flight. This photo is actually taken by one of our group member, Thea Dizon, on their flight arriving for the first time in Canada.

There are a lot of places where you can experience this but Yukon province is one of the best places in the world to see Aurora Borealis. You can choose and join number of tours abailable that will give you the best chance of catching the magical Northern Lights. There's even an aurora forecast, called the Auroracast.

Become a Canadian wine connoisseur in British Columbia's Okanagan

Did you think Canada was all snow, mountains and bears? Think again. The Okanagan differs from the rest of Canada because of it's dry, sunny climate. Even Cacti grow here.

Wake up to the beauty of Vancouver

Awaken your cultural side with Vancouver's Art Gallery or visit the world-famous Science World. There's also Stanley Park, an urban temperate rainforest, Grouse Mountain and the Capilano Suspension Bridge you can always visit.

Visit the nation’s capital, Ottawa

Jumping in to the city, make sure to visit Canada's capital city, Ottawa. There's the Rideau Canal, the Canadian Museum of Nature, the Canadian War Museum, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum and loads more.

Visit Toronto, Canada's largest city

Toronto is the most populous city in Canada. It has a lot to offer in terms of activities and culture. From the famous 553.3 meter tall, CN Tower to the Royal Ontario Museum, you'll never be bored.

Experience the French province of Québec including Montréal

You’ll be amazed by all the things you can do in the Quebec City Area. Don't forget your French dictionary though - Montréal is the 2nd largest French-speaking city in the world.

There's loads to do in this ancient city such as visiting Old Québec (founded in 1608), staying in the first and only ice hotel in North America (which melts and is rebuilt differently every year) and relaxing on the Terrasse Dufferin.

Take the train across Canada

You don't have to drive! Just relax and hop on a train from Toronto to Vancouver. Watch the stunning scenery go by on one of the world's most legendary railway journeys.

Hop aboard the Rocky Mountaineer

The Rocky Mountaineer is one of the most iconic railway journeys in the world. The railway has four principal routes:

The historically significant First Passage to the West route (Banff/Calgary to Vancouver)

The Journey to the Clouds route, which will take you on a mountain pass through the Rockies (Vancouver-Jasper)

See bald eagles, ospreys and bears on the Rainforest to Gold Rush route (Whistler-Quesnel-Jasper)

Whistler Sea to Sky Climb return day trip (North Vancouver-Whistler).

Explore the Atlantic Side

Atlantic Canada has 43,000 kilometres of coastline which runs across the provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. This is the part of Canada closest to the UK, but in terms of its wildlife and scenery, it couldn't be further away. Go whale watching, kayaking and warm water swimming in Atlantic Canada.

Be Amazed by the Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls, Ontario, is a Canadian city at the famous waterfalls of the same name, linked with the U.S. by the Rainbow Bridge. It's the site where you can be blown away by the Niagara Falls. Hopefully just figuratively and not literally. Although technically made up of three different waterfalls, Niagara Falls has the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world, with over six million cubic feet of water falling over its crest every minute. Plus, it's only 75 miles from Toronto.

Go whale watching

Since we're already in the water topic might as well go for whale watching. Although killer whales (also known as Orcas and Blackfish) can be found in all oceans across the planet, Canada is held to be one of the best places in the world to see Killer whales.

You may be lucky enough to watch this gigantic beauty from the beach when you relax at the Vancouver Island, but the best place I can recommend is to board and sail on a cruise at one of the Royal Caribbean Cruise ships. You'll not only see killer whales but other types of whales as well

Hang out and just relax at Lake Louise & Moraine Lake

Witness the pristine and inspirational scenery of Lake Louise, 'The Jewel of the Rockies'. Moraine Lake is also famous for it's natural and pristine turquoise waters which have been coloured from glacial salt.

Ski in the winter in Whistler

I'm sorry but I just can't help myself and go back to the snow and the mountatins.

Whistler is best known as a winter ski resort. But it doesn't end during the winter. There is some mind-blowing scenery to explore all year round, even in Summer.

Explore the spectacular Icy Rock Mountains

Last but not the least is the most iconic banff. I don't think words are enough to describe this beauty so I'm just gonna stop here.
