Stretching from the Pacific to the Atlantic Oceans and incorporating portions of the Arctic Circle as well, the opportunities for adventure in Canada are boundless. This country, known for its friendly people, safe cities and natural beauty, is also bi-lingual. Explore French-speaking Quebec, home to charming Montreal, or head west to the progressive, world-class city of Vancouver. The Western provinces are also home to stupendous national parks like Banff and Jasper and deep powder skiing in spots like Whistler, located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. In the center of the country you'll find Toronto with its very metropolitan vibe and a buzzing film industry, while those in search of polar bears and the Northern Lights can head to the top of the world in winter for both.
