Of the hundreds of countries scattered around the world, Canada is the second-largest in terms of land area. No wonder why the country has so much variety when it comes to tourist activities and destinations. It doesn’t matter if you limit your Canadian vacation to one of the regions, be it in Eastern, Western, Central, Northern, or Southern Canada. Each side of Canada has plenty of tourist activities and destinations.
Early in the year, it is best to go to the northern and central regions of Canada. From January to March, many tourists head to Churchill in central Canada to witness the aurora borealis or what is more commonly known as the Northern Lights. Few places in the world offer this opportunity, making it one of the best things to do in Canada. Or you can head to northern Canada in Yukon Town before heading to Churchill as the Northern Lights can be seen until March. That’s because the Yukon city dog sled race is only held in February.
It is also a good idea to stop in eastern Canada before heading north or central Canada. There you will find hand-knitted socks from the locals. These socks keep you warm in the first months of the year while it is still cold in Canada. Aside from these local souvenirs, eastern Canada is also where you can find the famous Gros Morne National Park. The Canadian shield keeps most Canadians indoors for the winter, but you can also find great, fun things to do in Canada.
If it is already mid-year, Western and Southern Canada are the best bets for tourists. Southern Canada has the Point Pelee National Park to boast. Located southeast of Windsor, Ontario, the famous Monarch butterflies take part in a two-month migration to central Mexico. Monarch butterflies do this every year between August and October. Meanwhile, Western Canada has the Banff National Park to offer, as well as an underwater village called Minnewanka Landing. And while the porcelain town of Vancouver is by far one of the most popular things to do in Canada, there are other things to see as well. The Sam Kee Building in Vancouver is also a Western Canadian pride and is listed in the Guinness Book Of World Records as the narrowest building in the world. Think of Canada for your next foreign trip!
