20 Photos that will inspire you to visit Canada

posted in: Canada | 19

As it’s Canada’s 150th birthday this year, we at The Curious Explorers would love to show you why people from all around the world should visit this amazing country. Canada has everything, from mountains, lakes, flat lands, stunning city skylines to islands, ocean (there’s three of them to check out!), and the variety of different dialects and languages.


It’s Canada’s 150th birthday TODAY (1st July 2017) and we from The Curious Explorer’s Headquarters like to wish our friends across the pond all the best and celebrate in style (don’t get too drunk guys). Let’s celebrate together by showing you the best photos which Danik took over two trips to Canada back in the summers of 2010 and 2015 and hopefully this will inspire you to visit this amazing part of the country. Claire hasn’t been to Canada yet but we are pleased to announce that we are doing a road trip from Vancouver to St John’s in 2018, the flight tickets have been brought and we can’t wait to drive the whole length of the Trans-Canadian-Highway-1 and we are already planning the trip.

Now let’s party, drink some Molson’s Canadian and eat loads of Poutine!

  2. Happy birthday Canada! I always love seeing photos of Canada’s beautiful spots. It’s such a scenic country and I do agree that travelling around by road is fun. Also, Canada’s National Parks are free this year. So it’s a top year to visit.

  3. I’ve always loved Canada. I went on a lot of hikes when I was there. I will go back for more for sure. The first picture already got me wanting to book a ticket again. Luckily, my canadian cousin is getting married next year, and so I will most likely go.

  4. I really need to visit Canada and I would love to visit the amazing landscape in Alberta some day, but I’ll probably wait till the celebrations die down, I’m sure it is already quite busy to see everything at this time.

  5. Wow! You had me on the first photo. I can’t believe you went that close to a huge bear. And aside from the landscapes, I also want to check out those street art.

    Canada is such an incredible country – Lake Moraine has been high on my bucketlist forever – it’s definitely Gods country once you leave the city limits! Some of the most beautiful scenery on earth.

  13. Canada is an incredibly beautiful country! So far I have only been to Toronto, Niagara Falls and various places East of Toronto, but would love to see the Rocky Mountains and some of the famous lakes in the west! Definitely one of the most amazing countries in the world! Thanks for sharing your photos.
