    Vancouver Things to Do

    Not far from the statue of the Girl in a wetsuit if you continue cycling or walking, you'll see this light house. There is a view plateau or bench where you can see the distance of the harbor.

    4 out of 5 stars

    Toronto Things to Do

    Visited the tower after being told of the incredible view, found that the view was limited to half the glassed area due to a restaurant occupying the other half of the floor. Going outside was worse, even though you have 360 views, the are severely affected by the birdcage like enclosure. The staff were inattentive seeming to prefer talking to...

    Montreal Things to Do

    I visited Canada included in a french group (a decision to practice my fading french), and they looked surprised when I said, in Quebec, that I was feeling like being in France. "Completely different" they argued. Well... reading about this classical building (in a now moved or lost site) I found: "L'hôtel de ville, bel exemple du style Second...

    Quebec Things to Do

    Niagara is wide, Montmorency is high. Not so spectacular as its neighbour, these falls, not far from town, impress by the highness, and are enclosed in a beautiful park. the descent at its side allow nice views.

    The Peace Tower replaced the old Victoria Tower which burnt down in 1916 and the focal point is the clock tower and bell.

The walls are sandstone while the roof is concrete reinforced with copper and was the highest building in the city until 1970. It contains a...

  • Falls at Night

    Niagara Falls Things to Do

    When the night comes, hundreds of people line the border of the river, waiting for the light show. As you can imagine, powerful focus of changing colors hit the falls, revealing them in a succession of colors. It doesn't add much to the day show, and if you want to photograph you must be well equipped, or you will end like me, only catching the...

  • Halifax Citadel National Historic Site

    Halifax Things to Do

    It is literally impossible to go anywhere in downtown Halifax and not notice the Citadel as it is the most prominent feature in the city, set on a height which, I suppose, is why it is there in the first place as an easily defensible and militarily advantageous place. The Citadel (why it is called that I have no idea) is situated on a large hill...

  • Moraine Lake/ Valley of Ten Peaks

    Banff National Park Things to Do

    As busy as Lake Louise already was, I was concerned about the crowds at Moraine Lake. Luckily, we still got here early enough (around 10:30), that the crowds were not too horrible. There was a fairly substantial line for those wanting to rent kayaks/canoes as we passed, and since we had skipped the walk around Louise, we definitely wanted to tackle...

    Banff Things to Do

    The town lies in the middle of Banff National Park, in the valley of the Bow River and resembles a small town in the Alps. In the summer time it is mostly visited by hikers, and winter is a place for skiers, the bustling city center is very contradictory with his quiet nature and beauty. Visits Banff certainly do not get bored Shopping in Banff is...

    Jasper National Park Things to Do

    The last major stop along the parkway before you hit the town of Jasper. From the parking lot, it's a short walk to get your first glimpse of the falls. However, there's a nice system of several short trails that give you views of the falls from a few angles, as well as a few other nice geological formations carved by the river over time. What we...

  • Hiking /Trails/horseback trails

    Lake Louise Things to Do

    This is classified as a moderate hike. The trail itself takes about 5 hours round trip, but I remember that i combined it with other trails so it took a bit longer. Though not terribly difficult in terms of altitude gain or rocks, the scenery was magnificent. At the end you get to the teahouse. I remember I bought a tshirt there, it took a fair...

    This weird looking lake contains one of the highest concentration of magnesium sulfate, calcium, sodium and other rare elements, and when water evaporates with the heat, the element deposits show up in this weird formation.

    One of Vancouver's most famous tourist attractions, is the Gastown Steam Clock. A symbol of this historic neighborhood, the clock is one of only few functioning steam clocks in the world.

    Another Chinatown, with the same colors, the same smells, the same... garbage, as all the other. But with an incidental small difference: After a week travelling in the USA, and being warned about the characteristic violence of the American society, without any problem, it was in the peaceful Canada, in Toronto's Chinatown, that we met the signs...

    Montreal Things to Do

    The central area of Montreal shows a perfect combination between historic and modern buildings. If I had to choose a place to live in North America, I think this would be my first choice. Harmony, quality of life, safety, and a natural blending of races and cultures, attracted me. Was it a wrong idea, caused by the rushing visit? Maybe! And, of...

  • Maid of the Mist

    Niagara Falls Things to Do

    It was a pleasant surprise the short lines to enter the boat "Maid of the Mist" that approaches the fall. In our way I understood why: there are at least 3 boats with the same name, switching positions in the short trip, making it almost continuous. It really allows us to feel the power of the waters, but it's a big and safe boat, without the...

    While most of the other stops along the Parkway are quick in and outs, you get the opportunity for a nice hike here in Johnston Canyon. You start out near the resort area, and start a trail that rises and falls through the forest and quickly along the river. The walk along the river is very cool - its nestled in next to the mountain. After about 20...

    Jasper National Park Things to Do

    It was our last day, heading back to Calgary, so we decided one last hike would be the Valley of the Five Lakes. We started out from the parking lot - the guidebooks pegged this at about a 3 mile trail. You cut across a meadow, then head over a ridge where the loop portion of the trail begins. I would HIGHLY recommend going clockwise. We went...
