Canada is the second largest country in the world and is home to over 30 million Canadians. The land of moose, maple syrup and ice hockey is also home to the rugged Rocky Mountains, spectacular natural scenery, wildlife and National Parks. Many Contiki Tours visiting the USA also incorporate Canada into the itinerary.

National Parks and Wildlife

Because of Canada’s low population density, the country is a haven for wildlife and the National parks around the towns of Jasper and Banff are filled with opportunities to see some of these amazing and unique animals.
Just some of the animals to keep your eye out for when roaming the wilderness of Canada include moose, bear, eagles, loons, bison, whitetail deer, caribou, elk, Chipmunks, marmots and beavers.

Food and Drink

Poutine is a great Canadian side dish of french fries smothered in brown gravy and topped with cheese curd.
