Canada is probably best known for its wild and expansive nature. The second-largest country in the world, by landmass, has only a few major cities, leaving huge areas of wilderness to explore. Expect breathtaking views across crystal-clear lakes, verdant valleys and rugged mountains. Take a good, deep breath of the crisp, clean air and just enjoy life for a while. For those with a love of the great outdoors, you can hit the ski slopes in British Columbia, go looking for moose in Banff, or enjoy the (better) view of Niagara Falls on the Canadian-American border.

The few large cities in Canada shouldn’t be overlooked, though – each provides an interesting and unique cultural hub, from the French-Canadian Montreal to the cosmopolitan Toronto. Canadians are famously among the most polite and welcoming people on the planet, and that attitude has created a fascinating culture for you to explore, combining influences from around the world.
