How to enjoy the ultimate Canadian experience


If you’re thinking of heading to Canada on your next getaway, you won’t be disappointed. Regarded as one of the most beautiful places on Earth, Canada has plenty to offer from spectacular scenery to cultural experiences and outstanding memorable attractions.

With so much to see and do, it can be difficult deciding what to add to your holiday itinerary. So, to help, below you’ll discover some of the best ways to enjoy the ultimate Canadian experience.

A great cultural activity you might want to check out is the Calgary Stampede

Get your adrenaline pumping

Canada is one of the best destinations you can head to for a little adventure. Whichever part you plan on visiting, you’ll find a wide range of adrenaline pumping activities to keep you happy.

If you’re heading to British Columbia and you’re a fan of winter sports, you won’t want to miss the Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort. Suitable for all ages, the resort doesn’t just offer skiing and snowboarding, it also provides activities such as zip lining, water rafting and hiking. There’s even a luxurious and relaxing Scandinavian spa you can enjoy after a hard day on the slopes.

If you really want to get your adrenaline pumping and see Canada like you’ve never seen it before, the CN Tower Edge Walk is highly recommended. Located in Ontario, after putting on a harness and a walk suit, you’ll get to walk along the edge of this incredibly tall building, leaning over the edge for a spectacular view.

The NHL is huge in Canada

Take in a little Canadian culture

No visit to Canada would be complete without experiencing its local culture. So, while you’re there, why not head to a hockey game? The NHL is huge in Canada, and there’s frequently rival games being hosted in Alberta that you’ll really enjoy being a part of. You never know, you might even decide to take up this popular hobby when you get back home. You could even invest in your own Bauer equipment.

Another great cultural activity you might want to check out is the Calgary Stampede. Taking place annually in July, the Calgary Stampede consists of events such as barrel racing, rodeo games, chuck wagons and bull riding.

Niagara Falls is one of the country’s leading tourist attractions

Tick off these must-see sights and attractions

It’s going to prove impossible to experience all of Canada’s attractions and sights in one day. So, it will help to put a little list together of the ones you really don’t want to miss.

The Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is a great place to take the kids. Situated in downtown Toronto, at the bottom of the CN Tower, it’s one of the newest attractions on offer. You’ll even get to stroke small sharks and stingrays, and the aquarium has an impressive list of marine life. Other notable attractions include Niagara Falls, Old Quebec, the Notre Dame Basilica and the St. Lawrence Market.

There is so much to see and do in Canada, but if you’re hoping to enjoy the most authentic experience, it’s worth following the advice above. Consider what you’d most like to see on your holiday and make a small list of the attractions and sights you really don’t want to miss on your Canadian excursion.
