Top picks for a great Canadian getaway

Finally making that dream trip to Canada? With an abundance of picturesque places to visit in the daytime, you’ll be exhausted in the evening, so settle down with a cocktail in hand and enjoy experiencing the best online casino Canada from the comfort of your hotel.

If you’re really stuck for choice on where to visit, here are our top picks for your vacation.

Banff

If you stick Canada attractions into Google, you’ll find reams of pictures of Banff National Park and Lake Louise – and for good reason.

Snug at the foot of the Canadian Rockies, this tiny mountain town in Alberta is home to three ski resorts, glacier-fed lakes, and incredible Canadian cuisine. This place MUST be on your hitlist.

Deemed the ultimate Canadian holiday experience, you certainly won’t be short of things to do if you choose this spot for your travels.

You can sip on spirits from the world’s only distillery in Banff National Park, so whether it’s chilli vodka, dry gin or maple rye that takes your fancy, there’s a tipple for everyone.

Rent a canoe and glide through crystal-clear waters of Bow River or if you prefer to be in the chilly water, take the polar bear plunge in Two Jack Lake… all whilst enjoying some beautiful wildlife roaming free including moose, beavers, bears and mountain goats.

Niagara Falls

Surely a trip to Canada isn’t complete without a look at the iconic Niagara Falls… a group of three waterfalls spanning the border between Ontario in Canada and New York in the United States.

Witness more than 168,000 m3 of water going over the crest of the falls every minute! The best time to visit is between June and August but the views are unbelievable – especially by helicopter.

Thrilled passengers have enjoyed the world-famous scenery for years. Some trips can include a view over the Niagara Wineries, home to over 15,000 acres of grapes!

If flying’s not your thing, head down to Clifton Hill and take a rode on the SkyWheel, which towers 53 metres over Niagara Falls.

Whistler

Adrenaline junkies, foodies and art connoisseurs will all find something to interest them in Whistler.

Not only does it boast the best ski and snowboard slopes in the world, but you can also admire some incredible scenery.

But if snow leaves you cold, there is plenty more to enjoy.

What’s a mountain retreat without some rest and relaxation anyway? Treatments are plentiful with loads of hotels offering their own spas as well as boutiques. Whether it’s a matcha facial for brightening skin or a Javanese Lular scrub, there’s something for all.

Arty types can browse the local galleries by picking up a Cultural Connector brochure from any visitor information centre. There’s the Crystal Lodge Art Gallery, Suzanne Johnston Art Gallery, and The Plaza Galleries to name a few.

One great find is the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, home to history and culture of local First Nations. A good family choice for interactive workshops and exhibitions.

 

Montreal

For a more leisurely that white knuckle trip, check out this city with its 18th century buildings but 21st century skyline.

With funky cafes and fusion restaurants at every corner, you can even buy French pastries or try the sweet Montreal bagels.

Things to check out here include the short elevator ride takes you to a secret city below ground level.

There are world-class museums, amazing cathedrals, and plenty of shops to explore. And if it’s nightlife you’re after, Rue St-Denis is where you need to be.

Wherever you choose, you’ll take away some amazing memories and before you know it, you’ll be booking to go back.
