One of the best things about Canada is that its diverse landscape means you'll never run out of places to explore. There's always somewhere new to adventure to, whether it's somewhere in the mountains, or one of the big cities.
If you're looking to escape from your usual routine, why not head on out to one of these awesome locations this year? Whether it's a road trip or if you fly, you're bound to have a great time discovering parts of the country you never knew existed.
1. Free Spirit Spheres // Qualicum Beach, B.C.
If you're looking for somewhere mind-blowingly cool to stay for your next vacation, this is it. These spherical treehouses start at $175 a night, and can be booked here. Plus, if a super cool treehouse just isn't enough for you, the surrounding area is beautiful too.
2. The Hopewell Rocks // Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick
Also called the Flowerpot Rocks due to their appearance, these bad boys are between 40 and 70 feet tall, and definitely one of the coolest things you will see in your lifetime.
3. The Enchanted Forest // Revelstoke, B.C.
Almost guaranteed to make you feel like you're in a fairy tale, this forest is home to over 350 folk art figures, along with a massive and very impressive treehouse. With something exciting everywhere you turn, the Enchanted Forest is a must.
4. Ivvavik National Park // Yukon Territory
Perhaps some of the most beautiful scenery you'll ever see, Ivvavik National Park is bound to appeal to any nature lover. Not only that, but there's also a wide variety of wild animals, from moose, to muskoxen, to wolverines.
5. Cheltenham Badlands // Caledon, Ontario
If you're in to barren, red hills and a whole lot of nothing, then you'll fall in love with the badlands. Poor farming practices back in the day created this place, yet it somehow still manages to be incredibly picturesque.
6. Sable Island // Halifax, Nova Scotia
Populated by huge herds of small, feral horses and approximately five people, Sable Island is about as off the grid as you can get. So off the grid, in fact, that you have to get special permission to visit.
7. Lake Louise // Banff National Park, Alberta
Lake Louise is a popular tourist destination for a reason. This glacier-fed lake is definitely unique, and will make your lake back home seem like a puddle in comparison.
8. L'anse aux Meadows // Saint Lunaire-Griquet, Newfoundland and Labrador
L'anse aux Meadows is an archaeological site which contains the famous remains of either a Norse or Viking settlement. If you're looking for something historic, but also completely badass, this is the place for you.
9. Jasper National Park // Jasper, Alberta
Located in the Rockies, Jasper is the ultimate place to go if you need to relax and recharge. The mountain air will immediately make you feel 100 times better than when you arrived, and the view is unlike anything you've ever seen.
10. Gros Morne National Park // Newfoundland and Labrador
Lighthouses, whales, and a waterfall called "Pissing Mare Falls". What more could you ask for? Also, it's beautiful.
11. Hotel de Glace // Quebec City, Quebec
The second epic hotel on this list, Hotel de Glace is only open temporarily during the year. You know, considering it's made entirely out of snow and ice. Hard to run a business like that in the summer. Starting at $260 a night, add this place in to your winter plans by booking a spot here.
