In this article, I will be discussing some of my top tips on how to prepare a Canada travel list. Canada’s travel and tourism industry has taken off iceberg viewing off of the Ungava Coast in southern Quebec, as among the best must-see winter attractions. locals know all is a big national marketing campaign which, in addition to a panel of highly regarded travel writers and celebrities, named the Ungava village of Aupaluk as one of the best 13 travel destinations in Canada. Here is my list of tips for planning a Canada travel itinerary which includes such travelling adventures:
The first step in planning a Canada travel list is to get a hold of your provincial or territorial travel guide. The most popular provincial/territorial guides are Canadian Country Magazine, CTV Travel, Canadian Tourister, and North America by Express. My personal favorite is Canadian Country. This magazine covers every region of Canada, even including all of British Columbia (for those not familiar with that name: British Columbia is currently one of North America’s most eastern provinces, bordered by Michigan, Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick, at the north and Atlantic Canada, to the east, and Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick, at the south). This magazine is also an excellent choice for learning about activities and attractions in each province.
The second step in preparation of a Canada travel list is to check out national parks. In my experience, once you have visited one Canadian park, you will probably want to go back to see all of them! The five most popular national parks in Canada are Banff National Park in Alberta, Banestown Park in Ontario, Glacier National Park in New Brunswick, and Vimy National Park in Quebec.
My own personal “must-see” when planning a Canadian Bucket List is the words of Bill Wordsworth. Bill Wordsworth is the famous American painter who came to Canada in the late 1800s and settled in Montreal. He is recognized as the first Canadian artist. In this series of books, he has given us some wonderful paintings of our country.
The third and final part of any Canada travel checklist should be to visit some of our country’s national and international airports. Canada’s airports are among the best in the world. They have very clean facilities and customer service, and there is usually a lot of information on the websites. On the first page of each site, there should be a very short description about what the airport offers. If possible, visit the main terminal to get a real feel for the traffic, the people, and the sights.
Although these three sites are great places to visit, I believe that there are many other places in Canada where one can spend one full day without leaving the comfort of one’s home. The Canadian golf clubs, for example, offer some of the finest golfing in the entire world. It is relatively easy to reach many of the major cities in Canada without having a Trans Canada or Greyhound bus. One can easily drive from Vancouver to Montreal, or from Ottawa to Prince Edward Island. And even though a canoe is the best way to get around the remote Canadian interior, there is no reason why one cannot drive from Calgary to Victoria, or from Toronto to Charlotteton, if it is possible to get to those cities by road.
