With the restrictions this past year, it’s no surprise that as the country starts to reopen we’re thinking about all the things we want to see and do. If you’re someone who’s already planning a trip, we suggest you start within our borders.
Canada’s cities and towns offer visitors a diversity of choice not found in many other places! From the hustle and bustle of chic, cosmopolitan centers to the outdoor playgrounds of our country’s many mountain resorts and the relaxed, friendliness of maritime cities, there is truly something for all of us.
To inspire your next adventure our team shares some of their favourite locales, and why they love them, across this beautiful nation.
What a gorgeous province. I love Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise, and a hidden gem – Kananaskis! It’s quaint, tranquil, and nature at its best.
• Rick, Director of Sales & Business Development
Lake Louise, Alberta
Hands down, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. Quiet and peaceful. Overall, a great escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. You CANNOT beat this view!
• Aria, Web Developer
I had one of the best trips of my life traveling by train out west and camping for four days in Jasper.
• Chris, Office Manager
Victoria, British Columbia
A beautiful piece of the island. Got up close and personal with some whales on a boat tour – fabulous!
• Andrea, Account Executive
Revelstoke and Vancouver Island, British Columbia
Powder days for skiing at Revelstoke or the lush rainforest, beach, ocean, and waterfalls of Vancouver Island are all things I love about the diversity of BC.
• Bogdan, Lead Web Developer
Kitsilano Beach, Vancouver, British Columbia
An amazing view and a super relaxing place to enjoy a coffee or hang with friends. Seeing all the cute dogs (not shown) was an added perk!
• Lexi, Social Media Specialist
Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario
Interior camping with a long hike or canoeing to a quiet campsite is the best way to decompress. Solitude, wildlife, campfires, hikes, and fresh air can make you a new person.
• Michael, Director of Operations
We took a full hour to sit and watch the sunset overlooking the pier at these magical bluffs. I recommend taking a picnic dinner or ice cream treat, slowing down, and basking in the beauty our country has to offer.
• Krysta, Rakuten Advertising Director of Business Development
Egan Chutes Provincial Park, Bancroft, Ontario
My friend has some property along the edge of the park. Camping, hiking, canoeing, and taking in the beautiful nature of the area never gets old! I look forward to portaging on the river every summer.
• Navid, Business Analyst
Wine, wine, and more wine. Need I say more? Always a good time if you want a quick getaway from the city and well, to drink wine!
• Alison, Senior Product Marketing Manager
Prince Edward County, Ontario
The small, independently owned wineries in this region are so quaint and welcoming! Plus, they have an incredible local art scene. The artist that made this caribou head still sends us dinner invitations. So sweet!
• Reja, Retention Marketing Manager
Cabot Trail, Nova Scotia
Spent days hiking old-growth forests, trekking atop mountains, glimpsing hidden waterfalls, and stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. Evenings were spent in quaint fishing villages enjoying the day’s catch!
• Claire, VP of Marketing
Old Montréal, Québec
Why cross the Atlantic when there’s a bit of Europe in my own backyard?! Old Montréal is home to amazing restaurants, a basilica, a market, and even a Ferris wheel(!) that feels very old world.
• Patrick, French Marketing Operations Specialist
This quaint area is a must-visit for me every time I go to Montreal. The cobble stones remind me of being in Europe and they have the best rooftop patios with amazing views of the city.
• Graziella, Brand & PR Manager
I have great childhood memories of visiting my aunts, making campfires, eating s’mores, and watching the sunset. Now that I’m a mom I just love visiting again to create more memories with my family!
• Melanie, Content Marketing Specialist
Québec City, Québec
As someone who grew up in the GTA, Québec City’s European vibe breaks up the monotony of my normal life.
• Tina, Junior Email Producer
