Top Things to Do by Province in Canada
Oct 18, 2017
From Calgary to Cape Breton Island, Canada is filled with incredible experiences! Each province and territory has something new to offer, so you won’t want to miss out on anything. However, you definitely won’t have time to do it all in your lifetime, so be sure to check out the crème-de-la-crème of Canadian attractions! Here are the top things to do in each Canadian province.
British Columbia. Some of the best ski country in Canada is found in British Columbia! Head to Whistler for an awesome day of skiing or snowboarding. Still a total rookie? No worries – you can get a lesson!
Alberta. Spend a day on the lake in Alberta. There are plenty to choose from, but we’re partial to Lake Louise and its lesser-known sister, Lake Morraine.
Saskatchewan. Be a palaeontologist for the weekend in Saskatchewan! Grasslands National Park is filled with dinosaur bones and other interesting fossils. If you’re lucky, you might find a few.
Manitoba. See more money that you’ll ever touch in your whole life when you visit the Royal Canadian Mint. Not only can you learn how Canadian cash is made, but you’ll also get to take a tour of the awesome museum and coin collection.
Yukon. You can’t beat the Yukon Wildlife Preserve when it comes to exploring Canada’s northern region. This place is a stunning 700 acres of various ecosystems!
Northwest Territories. See the Aurora Borealis here. While there are plenty of cool things to do in this often-forgotten region, the Northern Lights is hands-down the most magical and incredible thing you’ll experience in the Northwest Territories.
Nunavut. Go igloo camping in Nunavut! Make it a first-hand experience to learn a bit about Inuit culture and have some fun along the way. It’s certainly cold, but not as cold as you thought it would be – we promise.
Ontario. The CN Tower is not just another overrated tourist attraction. While it is pricey and the line can be long, when will you have another opportunity to stand on a glass floor hundreds of feet in the air?
Québec. The UNESCO World Heritage sites in Old Québec are pretty cool, but nothing can beat whale-watching at the edge of the sea. Seeing one of these majestic creatures rising up from the depths will be one of the most breathtaking experiences of your life.
New Brunswick. The Bay of Fundy is one of the coolest natural experiences you can have in Canada. Watch the tide go out, then walk on the exposed seabed among the towering Hopewell Rocks.
Nova Scotia. Take the drive along Highway 105 for some of the most incredible views of Canada’s coast. Along the way, you can stop to enjoy hiking and kayaking in the wilderness.
Prince Edward Island. Take the Confederation Trail! This was once an old railroad, but today it’s a long recreation trail for hiking and biking.
Newfoundland and Labrador. See the fjords at Gros Morne National Park for the ultimate Newfoundland and Labrador experience.
