12 Beautiful Places In Canada That Will Make You Proud To Call It Home

We are lucky to live in such a beautiful country with diverse landscapes. Within Canada, we have unspoiled sprawling forests, beautiful beaches, soaring mountains, and floating icebergs that will leave you breathless. However, there is much more to discover than the classic natural attractions that tourists flock to, like Niagara Falls, Gros Morne National Park, Moraine Lake, and the Cabot Trail. To help you discover even more local wonders, we've made a list of beautiful places in Canada that are so breathtaking, they will make you proud to call this country home.

For the ultimate road trip, you could drive from coast to coast and visit as many of these destinations as possible. It would be an incredible adventure! During the summer, you can enjoy a relaxing day at Nova Scotia's Thunder Cove Beach, which has red sand. Or, you could go on an unforgettable adventure by kayaking next to glaciers in British Columbia. Meanwhile, the Great Sandhills in Saskatchewan will have you feeling like you are in the Savanna. With so many marvellous sights to behold, the only challenge will be deciding where to visit first.
