Canada is known as a huge country with massive expanses of pristine nature, yet its cosmopolitan cities of Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver are suprisingly multi-cultural and sophisticated. This is a destination that has it all. World-class cuisine, entertainment, attractions - and breathtaking natural parks. Western Canada stretches from the Prairies (Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary), over the Canadian Rockies (Banff, Jasper, Whistler), and down to the Pacific Ocean (Vancouver, Victoria, Tofino). Central Canada is the business and financial center of the country, with the largest cities (Toronto, Montreal), historical treasures (Ottawa, Quebec City), and a share of natural wonder (Niagara Falls, Muskoka, Tremblant). Eastern Canada is defined by the Atlantic Ocean and the rugged personalities of its port cities (St. John's-Newfoundland, Halifax) and its sleepy villages (Prince Edward Island). Northern Canada is Polar Bears (Churchill) and untouched ancient land (Nahanni).
