World class skiing, decadent European style cuisine, ornamental cathedrals, peaceful island life…Canada is a patchwork of thriving cities and majestic wilderness. Montreal beckons travelers with its French charm and booming cultural landscape. In Toronto, the Art Gallery of Ontario is a vision of Frank Gehry architecture and national artistic treasures. The gleaming mountain ranges of Banff set a stunning backdrop for an exploration of the Canadian Rockies.

This Island is a World Heritage Site with amazing scenery, fossils, waterfalls, beaches and lots of hiking trails. The White Tailed Deer are adorable and Foxes are gentle and curious. I took the ferry from Sept Iles and my own van. I'd recommend renting a truck as it will take me forever to get the gravel powder off every square inch! The B&B's are spotless and reasonably priced. One note, the hunting season begins Sept. 1st and hiking the forests is highly dangerous. A Gem of an Island....great fishing and I read Antcosti boasts the most famous salmon river in the WORLD!

Brier Island is a great spot for the outdoor enthusiast. Two short ferry rides @ $7 CDN each for your return trips. After a whale watching excursion we did a little poking around. After a visit to the general store for gas & directions we set off to find Pond Cove beach. There is a small painted sign on a shed pointing the way down a dirt road. At some points it seems to be nothing more than a footpath. Finally, we reach the beach! It is helpful to know the tide times to be able to fully explore the beach at low tide. It is quite rocky at points but lovely sand beach beyond. Lots of interesting rocks, shells, & sea birds and we even spotted gray seals. Plenty of photographic opportunities to capture maritime life at it's best. Spend the day & enjoy exploring!

Nice variety of trails, some good for wheelchair or stroller. Peaceful and pretty even in November with all the leaves fallen. The smell of fall leaves was great. The moss and tree trunks were beautiful. Lots of Canada Geese and ducks in the waters. Glad we went

This recreational island is located in the Bow River, providing stressed-out urbanites opportunities to bike, hike and fish.
This is one of the most beautiful parks in Calgary. This is a must-go-to park for those who are visiting, for sure. Peace Bridge is there, Kensington, the popular stairs where people go to for either pictures or do cardio, fancy restaurants, rafting, Eau Claire Market mall, Sheraton Hotel, movie theatre, YMCA, they’re all nearby. It’s so nice to go for a walk or run or bike, or sit by the river. There’s even lots of events that’s going on there. Whoever said it’s a boring park and there’s nothing to do here, has obviously never explored much.

Former industrial site has been transformed into an artsy, posh neighborhood with quaint shops, cafes and bookstores.
This was somewhere where we wanted to visit on our last trip but never made it. But glad we took the time on this trip and spend a very sunny Sunday afternoon on the Island. The public market is amazing, the sights, smells and colours are breathtaking selling everything from fruit and veg (all expertly displayed), to flowers, soaps, local crafts and the dessert counters WOW AMAZING. The food court area did get extremely busy but we were able to find a seat - the Chinese food counter was our preferred meal option and it was delicious, with us opting for the Lemon Chicken and the Honey Garlic pork. The food was that good that we actually visited again the following week. There are lots of other places to visit around the market, with shops and amazing houseboats + I believe there was a childrens play area. We then used one of the aqua buses to get a different view of the area back to Plaza of Nations. I would highly recommend Granville Market if you are in Vancouver

This island historically served as a quarantine station for 19th-century European immigrants, and is presently a museum documenting their plight.
