Best Places to Travel in Canada

Oh, Canada! 🇨🇦 I've called Canada home my whole life and as an avid world traveller, I took what I had in my own backyard for granted. When I started travelling, I was choosing far-flung corners of the world over local destinations. Exploring more in the great white north has proven to me that there are incredible gems across the country - jaw-dropping landscapes, delicious food and wine, a cultural mosaic and iconic landmarks. In this Canada travel guide, you'll find some of the best places to go:

🏔️Banff, Alberta: I keep coming back here so not surprising this tops the list. The magnitude of the Canadian Rockies blows my mind, the mountain air, the trees, the glacial lakes. The hikes and drives in this area are simply stunning.

🥂Kelowna, British Columbia: The Okanagan is known for world class wine and farm to table food (can confirm, every meal we had was beyond incredible and every winery was unique and memorable with delicious wines). Add to this scenic drives, paddleboarding on the lake, boat days, and a lively downtown - Kelowna has it all. I spent a couple months working/living here and absolutely fell in love and cannot wait to go back.

🐟Manitoulin Island, Ontario: I flew to Sudbury from Toronto then drove over to Manitoulin Island and omg why haven't I done more of Northern Ontario? The island has a small town feel, hikes to panoramic viewpoints and locally owned gems like Split Rail Brewing (their hawberry ale is perfect after a day of exploring). Oh and did you know there are over 250,000 lakes in Ontario and 330 in the Sudbury area alone? So if you’re a water baby like me, there’s no shortage of beautiful lakes to explore in this province. 

🏫Quebec City, Quebec: Old Quebec gives off European charm (expect to hear French as you wander the charming streets), making the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites with its cobblestone streets and historic buildings. There’s unique events all year round and an emerging food scene with talented chefs celebrating local farmers and ingredients in show stopping dishes. Plus the city is in an area with peaceful lakes, endless forests and rolling rivers - ideal for planning day trips to explore the natural beauty.

🌊Prince Edward Island: This little island on the East Coast will charm you from the moment you land in Charlottetown. I lived out my childhood dream of seeing the iconic Anne of Green Gables house in real life, explored picturesque white and red sand beaches, tasted crisp local beers, and went to fun live music shows. The friendly islanders will keep me coming back.
