Tour Destinations in Canada
Toronto, Canada’s largest city, has many attractions, which include the CN Tower, the Rogers Centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays, and Chinatown, all of which are within walking distance of the downtown area. Excursions to many other attractions can be arranged, such as the Wonderland Theme Park or Wild Water Kingdom Water Park, whilst Niagara is a short distance away for a day trip or longer stay.
Niagara is home of the magnificent and world famous horseshoe falls, where a trip on the ‘Hornblower Cruise’ (formerly the ‘Maid of the Mist’) is a must. While justifiably famous for the Falls, the resort has much more to offer, with attractions such as the Whirlpool Jet Boat on Lake Niagara.
Ottawa, Canada’s capital city, is famous for its Parliament buildings, Byward market, and the historic Rideau Canal, where a boat trip will offer a different perspective on the city. You can also enjoy a days white water rafting, as there are many excursions available from Ottawa.
Vancouver, a coastal sea port in British Colombia, is full of sights such as the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Historic Gas Town, Grouse Mountain, The Chinese Quarter and the lively nightlife of Downtown Vancouver itself. Water sports and adventure activities in the nearby mountains are also popular pastimes, and will add to the touring experience.
No. 1. Destination Highlight: The CN Tower
Visit the CN Tower and travel by high speed elevator from ground level to 113 floors up, where you can stand on the glass floor and look back down to where you started – if you are brave enough! The CN Tower is one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, and was the World’s Tallest Tower, Building and Freestanding Structure from 1976 – 2010. It has recently been made possible for you to walk round the outside of the structure at 116 floors up – definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity!
