Canada is one of the most exciting travel destinations in the world. It boasts a wide, diverse culture, which we celebrate with pride, and there is simply no way to see everything in one trip - or even in a lifetime. Full of surprises, Canada is simply the most astonishingly beautiful country in the world.
Canadian culture has historically been heavily influenced by British and French cultures and traditions. In more modern times, Canadian culture became greatly influenced by American culture, due to the proximity and the migration of people, ideas, and capital. Amidst this, Canadian culture has developed unique characteristics making it an interesting place. In many respects, a more robust and distinct Canadian culture has developed in recent years.
It has many interesting cities, like Vancouver, Ottawa, Quebec, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax. It also has some of the most impressive natural locations- great for outdoor activities, like hiking, skiing, rafting and fishing.
The country is very large (2nd largest in the world after Russia) and climate and geography varies considerably. From moderate, mild coastal British Columbia and the hot and dry Southern Ontario area, to the rugged tundra of Nunavut... from the "short winter/long summer" region of Ontario to the maritime Atlantic coast- temperatures can range from plus 40 C in summer to minus 40 C in the winter, so dress accordingly!
