Canada truly has the most mesmerizing views of all. Many national parks have remained untouched and provide superb scenery.

Once you are here you must see the Niagara Falls in Ontario. This great waterfall consists of three singular waterfalls, namely Horseshoe Falls (Canadian Falls), the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. The falls are wider than they are deep, therefore a substantial amount of water passes through here every day. Be sure to walk the Rainbow Bridge, because you’re only a bridge away from the United States. You can watch the falls from a completely different angle.

Wildlife

Wouldn’t it be awesome to spot a huge grizzly bear, that was just about to catch a salmon from the river? That just might happen during your excursion through the ‘Great Bear Rainforest’.

If you’re lucky you’ll have a delicious lunch!
