Places to see when in Canada
Written by Valentina Romano
Canada is renowned for being home to some of the world’s best ski resorts. If you are passionate about winter sports, that’s where you should go.
However, this country doesn’t just offer incredible ski slopes and unique glaciers, but there are many other places that you should go visit when there, and that are not necessarily hidden under a pile of snow!
Before showing you the different locations that you must visit when in Canada, I will give you a brief introduction on the country.
WHAT? WHERE? HOW?
Being the world’s second largest country by total area and the fourth-largest country by land area, Canada was previously inhabited by various Aboriginal tribes before the European colonised the area.
Towards the end of the 15th century British and French established few colonies along the Atlantic coast. The native tribes fought against the European conquerors, who invaded their lands and destroyed their homes – same exact story we heard for South America, Africa and all the other colonised countries.
Finally in the 18th century the United Kingdom managed to gain the northern territories, which included in North America and Canada. Indeed, Canada was – and still is – a member-state of the Commonwealth.
The country’s capital city is Ottawa, which is located in Ontario, and the largest city is Toronto, also situated in Ontario.
Moving on to the places that cannot be missed when in Canada, The Golden Scope prepared a compilation – as always – of photos capturing those places.
From cultural to natural spots, have a look at the following locations and take notes on where you should go and what you should see when you’re around there.
Among the numerous places featured in this article are: the Cave and Basin National Historic Site, in Alberta; the Discovery Islands in British Columbia; and Charlottetown in Prince Edward Island.
