Not to be missed
Canada is a country that everyone can dream of. The fir forests stretching to infinity, huskies covering the immense snowy ranges, the lakes, the salmon powering up the rivers, and beavers are an integral part of Canada’s scenery.
In Canada, killer whales swim alongside kayaks in the spring, and maples set the hills ablaze with their incandescent colours in autumn.
The Great West and its national parks, and Alberta with its ranches, will not let you down.
In the winter, you can appreciate snowmobile excursions and the warm comfort of cottage accommodation.
Parks and gardens
In the summer, you can check out the national parks and swim in the lakes. In the autumn, you can experience the infinite charms of the Indian summer. And from East to West, you can meet a warm and tolerant people.
Among the essential sights, we can recommend Manitoulin island, Wasaga Beach, Niagara falls, Algonquin Park, the Rockies, Lake Louise, Jasper, the Saint-Lawrence Islands Canadian National Park, Canada Wood Buffalo National Park and Jasper Park.
In culinary terms, the more Americanised English-speaking part can be distinguished from French-speaking Quebec where they love a bargain.
In the small towns and villages, as well as the roadsides, thick club sandwiches, enormous pizzas and chocolate iced tarts await you.
They take cooking very seriously, and healthy eating or organic food is more popular than ever.
Above all, there is some very fine produce such as the meats (especially beef) and fish (salmon, halibut). Lastly, Canada has a great many restaurants (especially in the cities) that serve succulent cuisine with inspirations from across the world.
The art of the primitive peoples is a pillar of Canadian cultural identity. Inuit art, with its stone and bone sculptures, is indisputably the finest example. For their part, the Amerindians excel in the art of sculpting, engraving and basket weaving.
In addition to these indigenous traditions, Canada is a land of immigration that has welcomed numerous cultural influences. In the field of arts and leisure, the country is often at the cutting edge of the latest trends, offering visitors a host of remarkable activities and events.
Winter sets in from November, with very low temperatures continuing until April, then summer appears with two very hot months in July and August.
