Thinking of taking a trip to Canada ? Well, we do not want to demoralize you, but even if you spend a whole year traveling, you will be able to visit all the places that are worth visiting in this North American country, which offers super interesting cities (Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax, Montreal …), spectacular natural landscapes (the Rocky Mountains, Niagara Falls, Nahanni National Reserve …), a great offer in outdoor activities (hiking, rafting, fishing, skiing …), and a culture and customs unique in the world.
To help you organize your trip to Canada, today we want to tell you about some of the most beautiful towns in the country. Would you like to join us?
First of all, we want to tell you about Banff, considered the most important town in Banff National Park, a natural wonder located in the famous Rocky Mountains of Canada. Located at 1,463 meters high in the province of Alberta (it is the second highest town in the country), this town will amaze you by the mountainous landscapes that surround it. In addition, we must not forget its offer in hot springs and outdoor sports. Still, it is not surprising that both the town and the park have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
It was in 1800 when the small fishing community of Bamfield was founded in a place inhabited by the Nuu-Chah-Nulth, an indigenous community on the Pacific Northwest coast of Canada. Although it has adapted to modern life, Bamfield has not compromised the spirit of this remote community. In fact, it is a quiet town where love for the land prevails, something that is not surprising considering that it is located in the heart of the Pacific Basin National Park, where you can fish, walk, watch birds and explore the rainforest, beaches, and uninhabited islands.
We continue our tour of Canada in Les Éboulements, a town founded in the late 18th century in Quebec. Its name comes from the tremendous earthquake that shook the area in 1663. In addition, a meteorite fell in this same place 360 million years ago, shaping the crest of the mountain that is on the outskirts of the village. Its old mill is striking, which is still in use today.
Located in Banff National Park, very close to the town of Banff, we find Lake Louise, a village named for its proximity to the River Louise. Here you will find the same attractions as in Banff: spectacular landscapes and a great offer in outdoor sports.
We also want to tell you about Dawson City, an eclectic and vibrant town located in the Yukon Territory. Despite being in the middle of nature, this town preserves the original buildings of the Wild West, with its boardwalks. It is important to note that the community was founded as a result of the Gold Rush, after discovering gold in the Klondike River in 1898.
Located north of Montreal, the town of Les Laurentides attracts tourists from around the world all year round thanks to its landscapes made up of hills, mountains and lakes. In addition, here you will enjoy exceptional cuisine and a truly vibrant cultural scene, influenced by the different peoples that have settled the area over the centuries: Native Americans, Irish, Scots … In addition, here you can practice a lot of outdoor sports free: skiing, hiking, kayaking, fishing …
