Canada is the second largest country in the world, and one of the least densely populated. It is an ideal destination for wide areas fans. Moreover, with about 60% of the world’s lakes, and 45 national parks, it is the ideal place for nature lovers.
The country is divided into 10 provinces and 3 federal territories, split in 6 time zones, with very different climates and landscapes.
Composed of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, the Prince Edward Island and New Foundland and Labrador, these provinces are located in the East of Canada. These regions have maritime climate and landscapes, in particular with the Atlantic Ocean coasts. It is thus possible to see animal species such as seals or whales.
Quebec / Ontario
These two most visited canadian provinces are in the East of the country. We mainly come here to visit Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec city or the Niagara Falls.
The Quebec’s Far North is often forgotten while there are many wonders there. In particular, it is possible to meet Inuit populations. In the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, we can also visit the Anticosti Island, to enjoy large desert beaches.
Manitoba / Saskatchewan
These are two of the provinces with the lowest population density, not very touristic, they also have many provincial parks. With their landscapes composed of forests and meadows, these regions are less mountainous than the rest of Western Canada. In Manitoba, in the area of Churchill city, it is possible to observe polar bears.
Alberta / British Columbia
Mainly known for Vancouver and the Banff national park, these two provinces are located on the Canadian Pacific coast. The Rockies separate these provinces from each other.
There are a lot of national parks in Alberta, as the “Willmore Wilderness Park” and its rocky landscape.
In British Columbia, Victoria, the capital, is much less visited than Vancouver. Furthermore, travelers and hikers are also less present in the British Columbia part of the Rockies.
Composed of Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut territories, the Northern Canada is located in the subarctic area.
Perfect destination for adventurers, the winter is harsh and the main activities are sporting. Finally, it is in particular in these territories that it is possible to see the northern lights.
