Is It Time You Paid Canada A Visit?

If you’re an enthusiastic traveler searching for their next port of call, why not consider Canada? Whatever kind of break you’re looking for, you’re sure to have a whale of a time in this beautiful country. If you like the sound of wild coastlines, domineering mountain ranges, and chic cities, what are you waiting for?


Canada travel tips
If you’re planning to visit Canada, the first things you need to do are make sure your passport is in date and check whether you need a visa. If you do, you can complete your application online at official-canada-eta.com.


Once you’ve got your papers sorted, the fun begins. Start planning your itinerary and think about where you want to visit, and how you’re going to get around. You can catch internal flights from the main cities, travel by train or take buses. Alternatively, you can enjoy your own road trip adventure and hire a car or an RV. If you are driving, try and mark out a rough route in advance. This will save you time, and make sure you don’t miss anything along the way.


When you’re packing for a vacation in Canada, bear the elements in mind. This is a land of changeable weather conditions. If you’re visiting in winter, or you’re planning to hike or cycle up mountains, take warm, waterproof clothing with you.

Canada highlights
Canada offers everything from cosmopolitan cities to breathtaking national parks. Here are just a few highlights you may wish to include in your travel plans.


Urban adventures
If you’re looking for a few days of sightseeing, shopping, and fine dining, look no further than Vancouver and Toronto. Toronto is also a great base to explore the wonder that is Niagara Falls. While you’re there, enjoy a lesson in history and culture at Ontario National Museum and take a walk along the waterfront. Catch the ferry from Vancouver over to Vancouver Island. Here, you’ll find stunning beaches and incredible wildlife spotting opportunities. Research dolphin, whale, and bear spotting excursions before you travel.



National parks
Canada is blessed with an abundance of national parks. This is the land of grizzly bears and moose, and it’s a shame to miss out on the breathtaking beauty of the great outdoors. The Rocky Mountains are home to five national parks, including Banff, a prime ski holiday spot. Marvel at the Takakkaw Waterfall in Yoho or conquer Jasper’s Athabasca Glacier. Scale Canada’s highest peak at Kluane National Park. Or tackle a rainforest trek at Pacific Rim National Park. Even if you’re not the most intrepid adventurer, go along for the views. You won’t be disappointed. You can find out more about activities and park passes at http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/index.aspx.

If you’re thinking about visiting Canada, take these tips and recommendations on board. Do some research online, and plan a daily itinerary. Most importantly, have a fantastic time, and don’t forget your camera!

Here are just a few areas that you might like to focus on to get the ball rolling the right direction!
Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings.
