Top Things To Do in Canada
Canada is a beautiful country with so many things to see and do. The majority of must-see activities and experiences come from spending time in the great outdoors and we recommend that no visit to Canada is complete without doing one of the following activities and adventures:
1. Ski or Snowboard in Whistler
If you are a keen skier or snowboarder then you will have heard about Whistler as it is constantly voted as the number one place to ski in the world. Whistler is mainly for alpine skiing and in 2010 it hosted most of the Winter Olympics in Canada for events such as Nordic skiing and bobsled. If you want to hit the slopes there is no better place than Whistler, so don't miss out on an opportunity to experience the slopes for yourself.
2. Go up the CN Tower in Toronto
The CN Tower in Toronto stands more than 350 metres above the city and in 1995 it earned the title of one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. The tower offers many attractions such as the magnificent view at the top across Toronto. However, why not treat yourself and dine at the restaurant located at the top which revolves around and lets you enjoy great food as well as stunning views.
