Take a Journey Through Canada

The history of Canada extends all the way back to 14,000 years ago when Native Americans migrated here by way of the Bering land bridge. First Nations and Inuit populations lived here for a long time until Canada was colonized by France and England. The influence of multiple areas has created a very multicultural nation. Both French and English are official languages of Canada. There are 10 different provinces in Canada, each one with so much to offer. You will want to discover the various history, culture, nature, and gastronomy of each province. The Travelling Souk is here to take you on a virtual tour, but we guarantee you will be packing your bags to head to Canada soon enough.

 

Where to Go in Canada

Canada is known for being the second-largest country in the world by size. This means that there is a wide variety of places to visit. From coast to coast, there are incredible towns dotting the map. However, here at The Travelling Souk, our top three places would have to be Vancouver, Banff National Park, and Niagara Falls. Vancouver is a vibrant and diverse city on the western side of Canada, located across the border from Seattle, Washington. You can swim in the ocean and snow ski in the mountains within a day’s drive from Vancouver. Banff National Park is located to the east of Vancouver in the Rocky Mountains. The alpine lakes and stunning mountain peaks are so refreshing for your soul. Over on the eastern side of Canada, across the border from New York, lies the world-renowned Niagara Falls. The Ontario side of the Falls is called Horseshoe falls and it definitely offers the best views and attractions.

What to Do in Canada

The Travelling Souk has toured many of the provinces in Canada. There is so much to do that you can come back again and again. We had a hard time narrowing down the list of things to do, but we will try! In Vancouver, you should walk along the Capilano Suspension Bridge, relax and rest in Stanley Park, and visit Granville Island to do some shopping. Whale watching is also popular during the winter months. You can head over to the province of Alberta to hike in Banff National Park, explore the festival city of Edmonton, or visit the world’s largest rodeo at the Calgary Stampede. There are several world-class ski resorts located in Alberta. The province of Manitoba is home to many lakes and rivers, which offers the opportunity for hunting, fishing, and boating. You can also visit the Churchill on the Hudson Bay to see polar bears or beluga whales. The largest and most multicultural city in Canada is Toronto. There are so many local boutiques, delicious eateries, cultural and historical museums, and nightlife clubs to discover. About an hour and a half drive from Toronto you can also visit the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, which is personally our favorite. As you can see, there is a lot to do in Canada. You will just have to see it for yourself!
