Oh Canada! 5 Most Beautiful Spots In The Great North

If there’s one thing that everyone knows about Canada, it’s that the scenery is simply incredible. And that it gets very cold..okay, that’s two things. But anyway, both are definitely true. From crystal blue lakes to snow capped mountains, sandy beaches to sweeping plains, Canada has it all. And as the second largest country in the world, it’s no wonder such diversity exists in this incredible land.

With so many beautiful places to visit, it can be difficult to know where to start. So, take a look at this rundown of some of the top scenic spots in Canada and start packing your bags today.

Banff National Park

The quaint town of Banff has the privilege of sitting at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, providing it with stunning views on all sides. In the wintertime, it is a skier’s paradise with a host of excellent runs for people of all ability. In the summertime, it is a dream come true for hikers. And right in the middle of that dream is the majestic Lake Louise. Though it is entirely frozen over in winter, when it thaws, the bluer than blue water is a sight to behold. Not far away from here is Moraine Lake where you can get some incredible contrasts between the mountains, forestry and water.

Niagara Falls



Probably the most visited and talked about of all Canada’s natural wonders, that shouldn’t put you off from making a visit here. Remember to visit the Canadian ETA website before travelling here from abroad. Visitors can get incredibly close to the 57 metre drop by boat and witness the sheer power of the waterfalls first hand. The nearby Niagara Gorge has been a hotspot for daredevils for years, and there are plenty of walking trails around for those who aren’t quite as brave.

Whistler

Another name that has almost become legendary, Whistler is just a two hour drive from Vancouver and is a firm favourite amongst winter sport lovers. It was even one of the locations used during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. In the summertime, the lively town comes to life and acts as a base for hikers and mountain bikers looking to take in some pretty special scenery.

The Yukon

Right up in the sparsely populated north of the country, the Yukon is home to Canada’s highest mountain, Mount Logan. The fact that the region is so isolated means that this is one of the best places in the world to experience nature at its most untouched. There are hiking opportunities aplenty, or you get down to experience the scenery by water in a canoe or kayak.     

Bonavista Peninsula

Off the mainland of Newfoundland is the Bonavista Peninsula which is packed with hidden coves and other natural wonders for you to discover. Exploring this part of the world feels like you could be off the coast of Ireland or Scotland, which is testament to how special and diverse Canada’s scenery truly is.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
