The best time to visit Canada, if you’re interested in winter sports, is between December and April when snowfall is at its peak. January is the coldest month. May to September are perfect months to appreciate Canada without the snow, but if you’re hiking some high altitude trails can still be snowbound and probably not open to the public. Thunderstorms are also prevalent in the summer months.
The largest city in Canada and probably the most well-known. Home to one of the tallest buildings in the world, the CN Tower, Toronto is regularly compared to the New York skyline with prominent skyscrapers. It also has its’ fare share of green spaces including High Park which has many trails on its’ 400 acre site, as well as a zoo and numerous sports facilities.
No visit to Canada is complete without a visit to the spectacular Niagara Falls. Consisting of three water falls, the area straddles Canada and the USA. One of the best ways to experience a close up view of the falls is to take a boat trip from one of the many boatyards in the area. You can also take a walk behind the falls with an organised trek.
At 1,815 feet, the CN Tower is one of the tallest towers in the world. It has a panoramic viewing area with spectacular views over Toronto. For the more adventurous, you can take the “Edge Walk” which entails being tethered to the building and taking a walk around the circumference of the roof…not for the fainthearted. There’s also a restaurant where you can enjoy a drink and a meal.
