Wonderful views of Lake Ontario and the city skyline
Ontario is one of the most popular regions in Canada, offering a diverse range of natural beauty, national parks, roaring waters and cultural activities.
Toronto is a sprawling city with a distinctive outline of towering skyscrapers dominating its skyline. The famous 553m CN Tower is very striking and we heartily recommend heading to the observation deck and the restaurant to take in the panoramic views over the city and Lake Ontario.
One of the most popular day trips from Toronto is to see Niagara Falls – one of the world’s famous natural wonders. Straddling Canada and the USA, the falls lie around a hour and a half away by car.
A fascinating place to stop along the way is the quaint town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. This town has been historically preserved since the war of 1812 and it is really is one of the most beautiful towns to explore. There’s an array of antique shops, boutiques and restaurants that you are likely to lose all track of time in.
But there’s also another way to lose track of time and that’s at one the many wineries in the region. In 2011 Niagara-on-the-Lake was voted No.1 Food & Wine destination in Canada by Trip Advisor’s Travellers Choice.
You can explore the immense natural landscape of Algonquin Provincial Park and spot the amazing wildlife there including black bears, wolves, beavers and moose. There are extensive walking and cycling trails which lead you through forested areas and there are lots of creeks, streams and a lake which are just perfect to discover by canoe.

Toronto is one of the most popular Canadian cities and once you've visited, you'll agree that it’s easy to see why. As well as having impressive soaring skyscrapers, this modern metropolis is home to the magnificent iconic CN Tower. Construction was completed in 1976 and reaching a height of 553 metres, it has a glass floor and a revolving restaurant with magnificent views over the city. Toronto is also the ideal destination if you want to visit Niagara Falls.
Consisting of three waterfalls, the Niagara Falls area straddles Canada and the USA. One of the most popular ways of discovering this spectacular expanse is by taking a boat trip which can take you behind the falls themselves (be prepared to get slightly wet)!. The falls are situated about one and a half hours, by road, from Toronto.
Canada's Wonderland is one of Canada’s most popular theme parks. Open during the summer months. It’s perfect for the whole family, from the very youngest to older teenagers. There are fantastic, white knuckle roller coasters, 20 acres of waterslides, wave pools and water playgrounds plus first class entertainment from Cirque Canadian.
