The most picturesque locations in Canada

Canada, home to vistas of all varieties, from rocky outcrops to stunning, sandy beaches, there really is some of the most beautiful locations in the world dotted across Canada’s stunning provinces.

A holiday in Canada is the perfect way to explore some of these magical locations. There are so many to choose from that we have narrowed down a few of our favourites to give you a little insight into some of the wonderful places you could visit.

Carry on reading to find out a little more about some of these most picturesque locations and what they can offer you when visiting Canada.


Manitoba, a province that many may not instantly think of when they think of beautiful locations, is a bit of a dark horse and is often overlooked. Hugging the Hudson Bay, Manitoba is on the east of the country and boasts scenic coastal expanses as well as lakes and country outcrops.

Mount Thor

Located on Baffin Island, Mount Thor looks like something out of a Jurassic Park movie but it is one of the most picturesque mountains in Canada. Sitting at just 1,675 metres, it isn’t the loftiest mountain but it offers charm and grandeur.

Located within the Auyuittuq National Park, those who decide to visit will experience more than just stunning views.

The mountain climb isn’t for the faint-hearted with 1,250 metres of fall at an average angle of 105 degrees either side. That aside, it has been tackled by a plethora of alpine climbers who have tackled its rough edges.

The national park is well worth a visit as it is home to some spectacular mountains, glaciers and polar ice, rugged granite and much more.

Bay of Fundy

One of the seven wonders of North America, the Bay of Fundy is again on Canada’s east coast and is home to some of the world’s most outstanding phenomena. Visitors can expect to see some of the highest tides on earth, the rarest species of whale, precious minerals and dinosaur fossils. What’s not to love?

If you’re planning to visit the bay, then there are a few highlights you should ensure you see:

  • Waterfalls – Fundy Bay is home to 25 waterfalls, so make sure you explore some

  • Fundy Village – a small village situated in Fundy

  • Hopewell Rocks Park – a short 30-minute drive from the bay but well worth a visit

Banff National Park

Would the list really be complete without the addition of Banff National Park? A real treasure in Canada and one that is immensely popular with visitors and Canadians alike. Home to the likes of the Rocky Mountains, Lake Louise and the Rocky Mountaineer Railway.

Lake Louise

Banff is a picture-postcard image from any location, but Lake Louise is truly a gem among the wooded forests of the mountains. Deep turquoise, the waters look as if they have been tinged with food colouring and the surrounding walking trails are the perfect place to see some of Canada's best wildlife. Expect to see wild bears, elk, bighorn sheep and birds of prey.

Moraine Lake

Moraine Lake is also situated in Banff National Park and much like its sister, Lake Louise, it boasts some stunningly picturesque views that just have to be seen. The beautiful colour of the lake is caused by the reflection of the light on the small rock particles floating in the glacial water.

Niagara Falls

Since Niagara Falls is just a short drive from the city, it could be one of the first sights you see after disembarking from your flight to Toronto. Niagara is a sight like no other and one that everyone visiting Canada should witness.

One of the world’s biggest waterfalls, the falls can be experienced in a number of unique and immersive ways: from the viewing platform, from the sky in a helicopter or from the water in one of the sightseeing boats.

The falls are one of the most picturesque locations in the world, so make sure you have your camera to hand.

We look forward to booking your Canadian adventure.
