Must-Visit Places In Canada

Must Visit Places In Canada

As some of you may know, we are a Canada-based blog. The two owners, Cat and myself, are Canadian and live on opposite side of the country (British Columbia and Ontario). Our contributors, however, are mainly American. This leads to some interesting conversations. My knowledge of American geography is limited. I am always asking where in the US people are from and ‘what shape state’ that is.

But it goes both ways. Some of our contributors have limited knowledge of Canadian geography. We have contributors that have planned trips to Canada since working with us and I love sharing my Canadian knowledge with them. I am a proud Canadian and have lived in 5 of our provinces. I also worked in outdoor education and have travelled and lived in some of the most beautiful places in our country.

Must-Visit Places In Canada

Must-Visit Places In Canada

I am excited to share some of these places with you.

Bon Echo 

I had the privilege of working and living here one summer. You have to see the 100 metre high Mazinaw Rock featuring over 260 Aboriginal pictographs.

Harrison Hot Springs

This is Cat’s pick for a must-see destination. You have to see the hot mineral waters of Harrison Hot Springs, revered as the “healing place” by the local Sts’ailes First Nations for thousands of years. They were first discovered by Europeans in the 1800s. 

Sleeping Giant

I went to post-secondary in Thunder Bay so I was lucky enough to see ‘the giant’ almost every day. You must see the views of Lake Superior from the Top of the Giant trail.

Bay of Fundy

I have only been to the Bay of Fundy once but it is on my list of places I want to visit again. You must see both low and high tides. Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world.


I admit PEI is a province and not really a specific place but since PEI is so small you can see the whole province in a day. (If you really wanted to.) You must see the red sand beaches.

I am not able to go and visit any of these places this summer, which is why I am excited to share a little secret with you. If you are not able to go out and visit any of the amazing places we have in Canada you can bring a little Canada into your home.

National Parks Airwick Series

Air Wick® recently released their limited edition Canadian Parks Series™.  All of the scents were inspired by the National Parks of Canada, and specially crafted to reflect the scents of three parks: Jasper, Banff and Cape Breton Highlands. Each fragrance is available in two formats: Freshmatic® Automatic Spray and Scented Oil Electrical Plugins.

  • Jasper: Inspired by the park’s pristine waters and rare lilies, we crafted a fresh clean fragrance, accented by soft touches of evergreen, green moss and floral notes for a light, captivating scent.
  • Banff: Inspired by the untouched beauty of the Banff waterfalls, we crafted a scent with notes of wild strawberries infused with soothing mists of mountain rain for a wonderfully sweet and unique scent.
  • Cape Breton Highlands: Find yourself in the idyllic Cape Breton Highlands National Park and uncover the delightful scents wildflowers in bloom.

I am really enjoying the Banff fragrance. It is very subtle which I like and helps to remind me of all of the beautiful places I have visited while I am working in my home office.

I hope I have encouraged you to go out and discover some of the beautiful places near your home. To also help encourage you, Air Wick® is holding a Moment of Canada (#MomentofCanada) summer contest in collaboration with Parks Canada.
