Must-see Destinations in Canada

Aerial view of Icefield Parkway in Alberta

If you are looking for a break from the heat this summer, it might be a good time to consider an adventure in The Great White North. We asked some of our Canadian partners to share their must-see destinations in Canada. 

The Icefields Parkway, Alberta

The Icefields Parkway is a scenic road that traverses the Canadian Rockies, connecting Jasper National Park to Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. Located between Banff and Jasper, the route is approximately 232 kilometers (144 miles) long. The parkway begins in Jasper (north end) and ends in Lake Louise (south end) and features numerous world class attractions including the Athabasca Falls, Columbia Icefield – one of the largest ice fields in North America. This route will also take you by Sunwapta Falls, a striking waterfall with picturesque views from Icefields Parkway. A real must-see attraction is the Glacier Skywalk, a glass-floored observation platform that extends over the Sunwapta Valley.

Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador

The island of Newfoundland is located northeast of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Isle and is home to North America’s earliest sunrises. While Newfoundland is small, there is plenty to see from summer icebergs and whale watching to gorgeous hiking trails. While the island has plenty of campgrounds and campsites, it is also a great area for boondocking. You can go off-grid almost anywhere since so much of the island is still unpopulated.

Niagra Falls, Ontario

This sight entices millions of visitors to see the spectacular beauty of the waterfalls up close. Niagara Falls is known for the loud roars of the water and breath-taking view of 6 million cubic feet of water rushing down the falls each minute of every day. The weather in the summer is nice and warm, making the falls a little extra refreshing. They offer many guided tours of the falls from land, from right in the water, to even in the air, ziplining over the falls. There will be something for every family member here besides just seeing the falls, they also have attractions and rides, nightlife and clubs, wineries, breweries and distilleries, golf, and much more. They offer a variety of sleeping accommodations ranging from cottages and campgrounds to motels, or a hotel view of the falls directly outside of your window.

Fundy National Park, New Brunswick

Explore miles of untouched coastline in Fundy National Park, New Brunswick. Picture rocky shorelines and sandy beaches. While the park is open year-round, we recommend plannign your trup between July and September when the saltwater is the warmest for swimming. At the coast, watch the world’s highest tides wash in and out at the Hopewell Rocks. At low tide, walk on the ocean floor, and take advantage of the classic Canadian photo-op at the “flowerpot rocks.” A few hours later, return to the same spot to see how the ocean’s rising tide submerges the rock formations almost completely.
