TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Canada is notable for its friendly residents, natural beauty, and high quality of life, attracting visitors from around the globe. For first-time visitors, choosing which places to go among near-endless destinations in Canada can be a challenge. The following list will help you decide on worthy attractions to visit in this North American country. 

Best Places to Visit in Canada 

1. Niagara Falls

First-time visitors to Canada mustn’t miss the chance to visit one of the most well-known waterfalls in the world, Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls connects Canada’s Ontario and the US through its Rainbow Bridge. This waterfall consists of three main parts, one of which is Horseshoe Falls, the largest one and located mostly on the the Canadian side.

2. Vancouver Lookout

If you’re planning to visit Vancouver, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy a 360-degree city view from a 168-meter height at the Vancouver Lookout. This iconic landmark is located at the Harbour Center. 

3. Banff Gondola

Located in the city of Banff, the Banff Gondola is a must-visit to enjoy the vast and stunning views of the Canadian mountaintops, including Sulphur Mountain. You can also visit Lake Cruise and the Banff National Park.

4. Rocky Mountains

Canada has a wide mountainous landscape stretching from Banff City, Yoho, Kootenay, Waterton, Lakes, and Jasper. The Rocky Mountains are one of Canada's most famous and iconic views with dramatic wilderness, various hiking trails, and ski sites.

5. Old Québec

Old Quebec in Quebec City is rich in historic landmarks and museums, suitable for those who enjoy basking in history. The majority of its residents speak French, offering new experiences for visitors. At night, Old Quebec feels majestic and romantic, urging tourists to linger around in the neighborhood. 

6. Stanley Park

Stanley Park is a must-visit tourist attraction to relax and spend some quiet time in Canada. Stanley Park is huge, with many tall trees and stunning views of the pier. You can bike or walk around the park to enjoy the fresh air and the natural beauty. Visiting Stanley Park is best in autumn to witness the trees change into mesmerizing fall colors. 

7. Whale Watching in Vancouver

Thousands of whales migrate through the Vancouver waters from March to October, so whale watching is a considerable option if you’re visiting Canada for the first time. Vancouver Whale Watch offers whale-watching tours through the Gulf and San Juan Islands during these periods, with peak sessions from May to September. 

8. Whistler

Whistler is the best place to ski in Canada. Whistler offers a variety of ice adventure activities from snow sledding, bungee jumping, fishing, mountain biking, ice skating, hiking, horseback riding, and much more. If you visit in the summer, you can enjoy the 70-meter Brandywine waterfall located near Whistler. 

9. Rideau Canal

The Rideau Canal is a 200-kilometer-long canal connecting Ottawa and Kingston. However, this canal turns into the world’s largest naturally frozen skating rink when winter comes. In February, the Rideau Canal becomes busier with the Winterlude Festival where the residents make large ice sculptures on the 7.8-kilometer skateway.

10. Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

The Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is an iconic tourist attraction in Vancouver known for its simple suspension bridge stretching along 137 meters crossing the Capilano River. Standing tall 70 meters above the river, this site is suitable for thrill seekers. This park also offers stunning views atop the bridge, from forest greens to canyons and of course, the Capilano River.
