Canada is a beautiful country with a lot of breathtaking views. And if you’re on tours Canada and have time, then you should plan a road trip along the coast from Vancouver to Victoria and back. There are several steps that you need to make on your way, like the Butchart Gardens in Victoria, but there are also other things worth seeing.
Vancouver is a great city to visit. It’s full of places where you can appreciate the natural beauty of British Columbia, from Stanley Park and English Bay to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and Grouse Mountain. And as any Vancouverite will tell you, there are plenty of reasons to come back again in the winter too!
Jasper National Park is a must-see on your Canadian road trip. This park is home to the Canadian Rockies, which are also known as the Rocky Mountains. The Athabasca Glacier and the Columbia Icefield are two famous attractions in Jasper National Park that you will not want to miss out on seeing!
The Athabasca Glacier is located 35 km from Jasper town centre, so it makes for an easy day trip while staying at one of our Jasper hotels. World Heritage Sites like this one are found throughout Canada’s many national parks—they’re so important that UNESCO has deemed them worthy of preservation forever! You can hike or snowshoe along a 10 km long trail (about 5 miles) just for viewing purposes, or go for a full-day excursion with some hiking mixed in for a more challenging exploration of this amazing piece of nature’s beauty.
These guided tours Canada-wide give visitors access to some truly stunning chambers underneath massive blocks of ice—be sure not to miss out!
Banff National Park
Banff National Park is one of Canada’s most popular tourist destinations. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which means it has been recognized as having universal value and significance.
The park covers an area of more than 6,641 square kilometres (2,583 square miles), making it the third-largest national park in all of Canada. The landscape varies greatly throughout the park due to its location near the Rocky Mountains. You’ll find tall peaks with glaciers, rivers and lakes surrounded by forests, meadows filled with wildflowers in springtime—and even hot springs that provide some great photo opportunities!
Whistler is a year-round resort where you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and many other activities. It’s known as the snowiest resort in North America, with an average annual snowfall of over 5 meters (16 feet). In fact, Whistler has the highest concentration of ski and snowboard resorts in North America.
If you love winter sports, then you should definitely make your way to this Canadian destination during your road trip across Canada.
