Vast and varied, Canada is a country of majestic landscapes and upbeat, contemporary cities, of fjord-lashed coastlines and glistening lakes. Whether you are snow-boarding in the Rockies, cruising the Alaska Highway, basking in the sounds of the Montréal Jazz festival or eating lobster on Prince Edward Island, use our map of Canada to discover the best of this awe-inspiring country.

For an unforgettable experience, try whale-watching in Québec and spot orcas, humpbacks, minke and belugas, or head north to Churchill to get up close to polar bears. If it’s history you’re after, step back in time in Dawson City. In Vancouver, you’ll find a vibrant dining scene, with everything from dazzlingly fresh sushi to cheap and tasty street food. And, of course, you won’t want to visit Canada without seeing – and hearing – the fearsome falls at Niagara.
