Whether you're a wealthy businessmen on a city break, or cash-strapped student on an English course in Canada, there are any number of ‘must see’ attractions to be found in the country's cities. But in many ways leave the cities behind and head out into the wilds, and the country, if anything, becomes even more amazing.
For, let's face it, very few are the parts of the world that can match Canada when it comes to stunning landscapes and awe-inspiring natural wonders. Here, then, are four of them - and when you're talking about a country with as much natural splendor as Canada, the problem isn't so much choosing five, as leaving all the others out!
1. Niagara Falls
The Niagara Falls are one of the very few flows of water in the world that need absolutely no introduction. And, to be fair, with about four million cubic meters of water tumbling over them every minute, there's really nothing on earth that can compare with them.
The falls can be easily reached from Ontario and constitute the most visited of all Canada's natural wonders. A swirling, crashing - and deafening - mass of spume, foam and spray, it's impossible not to be awe-struck by this force of nature at its most elemental.
2. Athabasca Glacier
Canada's got its fair share of glaciers. But many of them - like Baffin Island's magnificent Barnes Icecap - are in remote places that the average student on an English course in Canada for the right student.
