Canada is 150 years old today, so what a better time than to share with you some incredibly beautiful scenic spots across this country that make for some stunning photo ops!
Jasper National Park
Located in Alberta, Jasper National Park is a popular tourist attraction for photographers and travelers alike. With the breathtaking views of the Canadian Rockies and over 11,000 square kilometers to explore, it’s easy to see why.
While located a little off grid in Nunavut, Baffin island is the largest island in Canada and 5th largest island in the world. You can get some great shots of the Northern Lights, polar bears, and can even kayak through the icy water.
The Georgian Bay is home to some of Canada’s nicest cottage country views, ranging from the turquoise waters and the Grotto in Tobermory (shown above), to the longest fresh water beach in the world, Wasaga Beach. There is something for everyone here, which is why vacationers from the GTA have flocked north for decades to get away from the busy city.
The drive north towards Muskoka has always been a favourite of mine. Roads winding with tall bedrock on either side give indication that cottage life is close by. If you want some amazing photos, travel here in the Fall to get a glimpse of the colour-changing trees. It’s simply gorgeous!
Yellowknife Northern Lights
Yellowknife is known as the Aurora Capital of North America for good reason. You can discover the charming history of the mining town during the day and get comfy for a light show when night falls. There are many tours available to help you get the best views.
Bay of Fundy
Being one of the 7 wonders of North America, the Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world and is home to some of the rarest whales. If you want to view some unique rock formations and out of this world cliffs while doing a little whale-watching, it’s located between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
Located on Vancouver Island, Tofino is home to year round surfing, a chill local vibe, and gorgeous natural scenery. There is so much to do here, from botanical garden viewing, whale-watching, hiking, and attending local festivals.
Gros Morne National Park
Sitting along the west coast of Newfoundland, Gros Morne is a place that every scenery-loving tourist should visit. Mountains and lakes give the perfect panoramic backdrop for a true Canadian experience.
