Nearness to the United States has always led to comparisons between Canada and America. Undoubtedly the US is bestowed with unmatched geographical biodiversity. But even then being the second-largest country in the world Canada has its natural charm and offers some of the majestic views compared to none. Apart from its world-class infrastructure, modern amenities, and quality lifestyle, its natural beauty is one of the reasons why people love to immigrate to this country. Here are some of the most beautiful places to visit in Canada.
1. The Rockies
These are indeed the identity of the US. But the ranges continue in Canada and can be said to have bestowed its best glimpses to this maple-scented land as it stretches northwards. The entire area is ideal for activity either for hiking in summer or skiing in winter. Glass-topped carriages that offer superlative views of the waterfalls, towering mountain peaks, blue lakes, and canyons make it an ideal getaway for the honeymooners. For those who love exploring the wildest part of nature, the presence of 5 National Parks including Yoho, Kootenay, Glacier, Banff, and Jasper presents the widest choice available.
2. Abraham Lake In Alberta
The temperature dips to – 30 Fahrenheit in Alberta during winter. Interestingly, it is during this period that the organic material in Abraham Lake decays and releases methane gas at the bottom leading to the formation of an ethereal view. Millions of bubbles freeze into ice rapidly as they surge upwards giving it the appearance of a hard-frozen lake embellished with glassy constellations. Its stunning view albeit laced with danger is a major attraction for photographers.
3. Western Brook Pond, Labrador, and Newfoundland
Located on the threshold of Newfoundland, the Western Brook Pond encompasses an area of 10 miles of Gros Morne National Park. Reaching the place in itself is an adventure. But once your eyes hit the scenic views around, you understand why tourists are so eager to take all such efforts to enjoy this natural masterpiece. Its pristine lake waters, cascading waterfalls, Long Range Mountains and cliffs standing from billion years, make the eight-hour drive from St. John and two miles hiking worth the try.
4. Jasper National Park, Alberta
It is an all-season, all-time hit with the tourists. During the summer, visitors love to explore the epic background hikes. Come winter it’s time to drown in the mesmerizing views of glacial lakes and waterfalls and enjoy skiing on the 1,675 acres of Marmot Basin. One of the major attractions of this national park is the Jasper Sky Tram. It unravels some of the marvelous views around the Whistlers Mountain stretching across 50 miles.
It is also an ideal destination for astronomers and stargazers as you get to experience the no-light view of the dark sky during the night when aboard the Jasper Sky train.
5. Cavendish Beach, Prince Edward Island (PEI)
Famous for its lobsters, PEI attracts huge crowds every year to its Cavendish Beach. Tourists flock to this teeniest province of Canada to experience the long stretches of sandy-white shoreline, historic architecture, and rocky red cliffs. Those with passion for games and water sports love to indulge in golfing, parasailing, kayaking, and deep-sea fishing.
6. Dempster Highway, Yukon
The Dempster Highway is one iconic stretch winding north from Dawson City. It takes you through some of the most beautiful places to visit in Canada passing along the Arctic Circle, river ferries, endless sun, roadside grizzlies, and more finally camping in the rugged backcountry of the Tombstone Territorial Park. The surrounding area is simply exquisite where you can hike through lands untouched by human technology. Forests and hills make exploration all the more interesting.
7. Castle Butte, Saskatchewan
It is an impressive formation of compressed clay rock and sandstone located in the Big Muddy Badlands of the Prairie. It is where the famous bandits hid almost a century ago from the authorities in the US. During the summer when the wildflowers bloom to their full glory, tourists flock here to explore the 230ft-tall Castle Butte.
