Seven Places to See in Canada Before You Die

Updated on September 25, 2014

Our Home and Native Land

Our family never did any travelling when I was growing up so it has always been one of my dreams. I think I am a natural explorer even though I never really venture far from home.

Money can be a big hindrance to travelling but my husband and I bit the bullet twice over the past four years and decided if we were ever going to do it it was best to do it now.

We divided our trip into two adventures. The first. Driving from Eastern Ontario to Nova Scotia stopping in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island along the way. The second, RVing with the in-laws to British Columbia. We saw a lot of places but not nearly enough to say we have seen it all. Canada is so big! And there is still so much to see.

The more suggestions the better...

What follows are my suggestions for places to see in Canada before you die based on these two trips. If you have been somewhere you would like to recommend then please consider leaving your recommendation in the guest book below or better yet... create a Hubpage and let me know and I will link to it. But make sure you let me know so I can visit too.

Niagara Falls

A busy but exhilarating experience...

Niagara Falls is a border town which falls on the Canadian side in Ontario and on the U.S. side in New York. There are two sets of falls. The larger of the two falls is on the Canadian side and are called the Horseshoe Falls because of its curved resemblance to a horseshoe.

Must see attractions at Niagara include:

Of course it is always nice to see things first hand but it is not always realistic. Here are a few options from Amazon to give you some mist in your face.

Sleeping Giant Provincial Park

Nanabijou

The Sleeping Giant or Sibley as she is known to long-term residents is a peninsula that hugs the shores of Thunder Bay, Ontario protecting it from Lake Superior. The rock formations on the peninsula resemble a reclining figure with arms folded across its chest. Of course there are many legends surrounding the figure but the most common is from an ancient Ojibway narrative about Nanna Bijou, the Spirit of the Deep Sea Water, who was turned to stone when one of his people was tricked into sharing the whereabouts of the tribe's silver mine.

As part of a provincial park its protected boreal forests and man-made trails provides a home for an array of wildlife from deer, moose and fox to shore and water birds like the heron and loon.

Hopewell Rocks

During low tide visitors to the Hopewell Rocks, in Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick can walk out onto the Bay of Fundy floor to journey around these amazing natural formations.

This can be an all day adventure if you arrive early... because it is so busy I highly recommend the earlier the better during the summer tourist season.

Jasper National Park

Every day is breathtaking...

If you long to be surrounded by mountain peaks and exceptional wildlife then you must take the time to go camping in Jasper's National Park, "Canada's largest rocky mountain park". Wake to caribou grazing outside your tent or go and hike a glacier or gaze into turquoise lakes.

The Badlands

Not so bad...

The amazing land formations that exist in the badlands of Alberta, especially in the Drumheller area are definitely a must see. As are the Hoo Doos and the dinosaur museum.

Our time here was so short because we did not know better. I would definitely like to spend more time exploring here.

Canada Travel Wish List

Canada being such a huge topographical area with so much to see, it is not surprising that I have a wish list of places in Canada where I would like to visit but have not been... yet. This is my list in no particular order.

  • Newfoundland
  • Montreal, Quebec
  • Pretty much anywhere in the North West Territories but especially Yellowknife.
  • Anywhere in the Yukon but especially Whitehorse.
  • Northern British Columbia.
  • Wood Buffalo National Park in Northern Alberta.
  • Wapusk National Park in Manitoba.
  • Polar Bear Provincial Park in northern Ontario.

A Movie Featuring Canadian Scenery As a Character

I loved this movie featuring Canadian actor Joshua Jackson. It was fun recognizes places I have been and seeing new ones.

 

Thank you so much for stopping by to read my lens and view my photos. I really love hearing from you so please share with us where you have been in Canada and what you consider to be one of the "must visit" places. If you have never been then where would you like to go?

Canada, the Beautiful - It is so big it makes it impossible for one person to experience it all.

      Indeed you chose 7 places that every canadian and non canadian should see before one dies. Other thing which i haven't seen is "Museum of Archaeology and History" from Montreal which I would like to see when I travel this time to Canada. I think July good time to visit. I will definitely refer this 7 places and will make sure i visit most of them.

      Too true. Canada is too big and too beautiful to narrow down only 7 places. I've lived in almost every province myself as dad was in the military so we moved quite a bit. It's given me the rare privilege to see most of Canada. I think I'll take you up on the challenge to write about my favorite places in Canada. Thanks for the memories and the opportunity. Awesome lens.

I think you'd be better off visiting Vancouver or the Rockies. Just my personal opinion.

      Hi, I'm from Manitoba. We spent this past summer traveling West with our kids which was wonderful. The mountains are beautiful. It's a breathtaking view. We've been as far as Victoria, and spent time in Sask, Alberta, and BC. It's always nice to visit but what I miss the most on these trips is the water. Lots of water in the mountains but to cold to swim in. Guess I'm a beach girl at heart. We do a lot of trips close to home here as well. Maitoba is definitely farm Industry but for recreation its lake country. Over 14.5 % of our province is covered in water. We have a world renowned beach with white sand, and more beaches than you can count. Fishing is plentiful here and week long canoe trips where you will experience wildlife and true peace like no other. Unfortunately the main highway through this province is quite boring and not a very poor representation of what it has to offer for recreation. My favorite places are Falcon Lake, Hecla island, Gimili, Grand beach, and Caddy lake which has tunnels you pass thru to get from lake to lake. I think the mountains are gorgeous, and a must see but if you like it hotter, there's nothing that tops the beaches and boating in Manitoba. :)

      Thanks for the info. I was in Canada once in 1980 in January. We were out on a frozen oil rig in the frozen foothill of the Rockies. Except for the bitter cold (it was -40F or C in Calgary and -60F out at the rig when I got there) I did enjoy the job I was sent to do. Got to see the light show in sky and that was amazing to this Louisiana boy.
