Canada The Niagara Falls are just an hour’s drive from Toronto, one of Canada’s most famous natural attractions, along with the Niagara Gorge, their power never fails to amaze. Able to get awesomely close, witness the force of the water that has been attracting people for centuries. The town of Whistler; a two hour drive from Vancouver, is a ski resort and village, which has always been important to the winter sports culture, and is versatile because it is used in summer for things such as hiking. The resort became internationally recognised in 2010 as one of the locations used for the Winter Olympics, and has world class facilities. If history is more up your street, why not visit the old area of Old Montreal. The town welcomes you with its historic buildings, superb shopping, food you’ll love and the kaleidoscope of culture . The atmosphere contrasts to Montreal itself, which is a bold, modern city, but Old Montreal has cherished landmarks, like Notre-Dame Basilica, that just could not be replaced. Toronto is an engineering marvel, the award-winning CN Tower is a must. Dining and entertainment are their specialities, and the impressive views are an added bonus, always seen thanks to the glass fronted elevators and glass floor panels. The new EdgeWalk is the world’s highest ‘hands-free’ walk, great for thrill seekers, however the CN Tower can also be a tamer family attractions, as it has a KidZone. Canadian Lynx are about the size of a large domestic, house cat, they can be found in forested areas, under fallen trees, rock ledges, or thick bushes, where they like to nest, in the northern part of North America and Canada. Seeing one is rare, but would be an extraordinary experience, as their numbers are declining, due to them being hunted by humans, for their thick, exquisite fur coats.
