Canada contour map

The Canadian Rockies capture some of the world’s most breathtaking beauty. There’s a reason Banff and Lake Louise in Alberta are on so many bucket lists. The Great North is more than just snow-covered, ice-capped wildernesses: in northern Manitoba narwhals and polar bears can be seen in their natural environment– sights not to be forgotten. Canada is a year around haven for activities of all kinds.

Introduction
Vibrant urban centers are sprinkled across Canada's nature wonderland, from Vancouver in the west to the historic city of French-inspired Montreal in the east, to hip and bustling Toronto. Our city stay packages and self-drive trips are just the thing, while ski bums and snowboarders head to Whistler and other resorts in winter months. Of course, quality guide services for your very own Canada tour are readily arranged.
Tastes of Canada
As our northern neighbor, much in Canadian cuisine will be familiar. As a matter of fact, split pea soup is a French Canadian invention. And Canada does have its unique dishes, perhaps none as well known as poutine. There are variations, but traditional poutine is french fries with peppery meat-based gravy and curds. Tourtiere is French Canada's version of Russian pierog, a crust filled with ground pork, beef, veal or game with herbs and spices. On the sugary side, beaver tails are like a flat donut without a hole and butter tarts have a crumbly crust and a creamy center of butter, sugar and egg. And don't forget the maple syrup.
