A nature-lover's paradise.
There are tons of pictures of Vancouver and Toronto splashed across social media, but it turns out that there are some truly wonderful sights to see in some small towns across the country.
Travel + Leisure recently released a list of the 12 best small towns in Canada that "deliver on adventure, charm, and hospitality" and the Northern town of Churchill, Manitoba, earned itself a spot on the list.
Did you know that you can see the Northern Lights without going to the territories? You can catch the marvellous light display in Churchill up to 300 nights of the year, according to Travel Manitoba, but February and March are the best times to view it clearly.
Churchill is known as the polar bear capital of the world, and there are lots of guided tours that'll take you out to safely view the fuzzy white creatures. The best time to view the bears is in October and November.
And if you're more into marine creatures, visit in June to September to spot pods of belugas cruising through the Hudson Bay. Over 50,000 of the majestic creatures pass through the area, so you'll most likely be able to spot a few if you're there during the right months.
Whether you're an expert photographer or a total amateur, the landscape and stunning wildlife are so beautiful that all of your pictures will be totally Insta-worthy.
