Canada is situated in North America and borders the USA towards its South.  Canada is big. Damn big, a whopping 10 million sq km, making it the world’s second-largest country.

Its terrain is filled with mammoth mountains to hulking glaciers to clear blue skies. Then there are the creatures that roam the terrain and its waterways – grizzly bear, moose, polar bear, humpback whales – each one huger than the next.

Canada is impossible to dislike. Festival-packed cities like Toronto and Montreal that offer the world’s best quality of life, hiking and skiing or snowboarding over the cloud-poking mountains of Banff & Jasper National Parks which are part of the world famous Canadian Rockies. Wonders of the world like Niagara Falls which are the largest waterfalls in the world and then Vancouver which after all, is a city  that routinely tops the lists of the world’s greatest places to live. But beyond the breathtaking snowcapped crags, city-hugging beaches and dense waterfront forests lies a comparatively young country which is beautiful yet rugged and a travelers paradise.  Canada has it all, right from Cosmopolitan cities, luxury cruises, rugged mountains, lakes and forests.

And it’s a wonder everyone is so nice in Canada, given the weather. It’s cold, as in world’s-coldest-country (based on average temperatures nationwide). Snag, a town in the Yukon, recorded North America’s coldest temperature ever: minus 62.8°C. Canada is however preferred by most travelers in the summer months when days are long weather is cool and you can see the midnight sun up north.
