Canada is one of those places you think you know a lot about. You know that it’s home to the Niagara Falls, and that the CN Tower in Ontario was once the tallest free-standing building in the world. You even know that Canadians are supposed to be a friendly, law-abiding bunch, who love nothing more than to watch a thrilling game of hockey, so you could be forgiven for thinking that there is nothing surprising about Canada at all. You’d be wrong.
Canada is actually one of the most unique places you can travel abroad to, and as you would expect from the second largest country in the world, it has a lot of one-of-a-kind experiences to offer. Here are just a handful of them:
Howling with Wolves
When you’re applying for a Canadian visa at this website, the last thing you probably think you’ll end up doing on your trip is howling with wolves, but you can if you want to. Wolves often have a bad reputation, After all, they’re powerful creatures, who like to travel in packs. However, they are also very intelligent, interesting creatures, and spending some time in close proximity with them can be a very rewarding experience.
In August, there are a number of Wolf Howls held in Algonquin Park, where professional park rangers will holler out their best wolf howls before all of the tour members head out in special vehicles to catch a glimpse of the beautiful animals in their natural surroundings. It really is amazing.
Walk on the Seabed
If you want to ensure that your next trip to Canada is a truly memorable one, what could be better than walking on the ocean floor: Nothing, right? So head to the Bay of Fundy – home of the planet’s highest tides – and when the tide is low, you’ll be able to walk on the seabed, which is filled with interesting fossils, rock formations and, of course, an abundance of seaweed!
See a Dinosaur
No, Jurassic Park hasn’t become a reality, but that doesn’t mean you can’t see a huge dinosaur! If you visit the fine city of Drumheller, which has been given one of the coolest nicknames ever – Dinosaur Valley – you can get up close and personal with a 151 foot long, 86 foot high dinosaur! Obviously, it’s dead, but still, impressive, right?
As well as taking a selfie or two with this mammoth creature, you can also spend some time digging the site where dinosaur bones have been found for more than 200 years. Who knows, you might find a whole new species!
Walk in the Footsteps of Vikings
Do you love your history? Do you think Vikings are really cool? Visit L’anse aux Meadow, and you’ll be able to walk in the footsteps of Lief – the son of Eric the Red. You’ll also get to see impressive icebergs, try out ax throwing Viking style and have dinner in a fun-filled Viking inspired diner. Just imagine how great the photos will be?
