Nov 09, 2017
You don’t have to drive far to see fall foliage in Canada! No matter where you live, you can take a quick weekend trip in your own province or territory to enjoy the colours of fall. Take a look at our list of awesome places to see fall foliage in every province and territory!
Alberta. One of Alberta’s most beautiful autumn destinations is Lake Louise. Around the end of September, the larch trees will turn yellow and drop their needles.
British Columbia. Queen Elizabeth Park is a gorgeous sight to behold in the fall! This is a 130-acre park located at the highest point in Vancouver. The trees in the garden match the brilliancy of the flowers and the arboretum is particularly stunning!
New Brunswick. You can’t beat the Fundy Coastal Drive when it comes to autumn colours in New Brunswick! Enjoy the colours of the trees fringing the picturesque coastline.
Newfoundland and Labrador. Corner Brook is the best place to see fall colours in this part of Canada. While the colours here are less brilliant than they are in other provinces, you can still see a lovely show!
Northwest Territories. Fall in Northwest Territories is spectacular by day for the bright foliage and stunning by night for the auroras. Head to the Richardson Mountains for boldly painted strokes of colour at every turn!
Manitoba. Whiteshell Provincial Park has over 2000 kilometers of fall foliage to enjoy. Take a road trip through the park to see as much as possible!
Nova Scotia. Cape Breton Island National Park offers stunning autumn views. Here, the mountains sweep down to the sea in a blaze of fiery colours! Drive the ribbon of highway along the coast for endless beauty.
Nunavut. Fall is a magical time in Nunavut, for both the colourful foliage and the animal migrations. Visit the Kivalliq region to catch the caribou migration and fall colours at the same time!
Ontario. It’s hard to pick just one good place to see fall colours in Ontario! For sweeping views of the fall foliage in Ontario, climb Mount Nemo. You can’t beat that sight!
Prince Edward Island. The famous Confederation Trail, which follows an abandoned rail road track, is most popular in the summer. However, fall is perhaps its most beautiful season! Take this trail to see PEI’s loveliest display of colours.
Québec. Head to the Eastern Townships area of Québec for views of the mountains in full autumn colour. Various towns host fall festivals this time of year, so be sure to check out local event listings!
Saskatchewan. Take a drive along the Spruce River Highlands trail for spectacular views of the golden aspens and orange tamaracks. This trail takes you above the treetops for the best possible view!
Yukon. Tombstone Territorial Park is a beautiful place to see both fall colours and the autumn aurora. You have to hit this park early though, since peak season happens soonest in the north!
