A weekend at Whistler, Canada’s famous ski and recreation resort, and a visit to a First Nations cultural centre, left me with a new way of seeing this ancient land.
Canada is the second largest country on earth, by area size. Most of the country looks like a picture postcard with stunning wilderness areas, well-maintained national and provincial parks, charming towns, rugged coastlines, and of course several vibrant cities, including Vancouver, Montreal, and Toronto. It’s my home country and I love travelling in Canada from coast to coast.
The Fairmont Hotels rise like castles above Canada’s cities & tourist areas. They are the most iconic hotels in Canada and a “must do” experience when visiting this country.
My week in Vancouver included eating the best Indian food outside of India and cavorting with Grizzly bears and birds of prey on Grouse Mountain.
On the famous scenic drive, the Icefields Parkway, the Glacier Skywalk and Heli-Yoga are two amazing ways to get way up high in The Rockies.
My flight in pictures aboard a Beaver bush plane from Harbour Air Seaplane’s Coal Harbour terminal in downtown Vancouver to Salt Spring Island and back.
The Canadian has been traversing the vast Canadian landscape from Toronto to Vancouver and back since the 1950s. It’s an epic train journey, relaxing and fun, and the best way to see Canada’s natural beauty.
Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in Vancouver lovingly preserves the sanctity of the West Coast temperate rain forest and history of the region.
The CN Tower in Toronto may no longer hold the title of world’s tallest structure, but it’s still a top place to visit for 3 very good reasons.
Soaring totem poles and a freedom fighter’s jacket greet visitors to the Canadian Museum of History. It’s a great way to experience all things Canadian.
