Here’s how Canada was described:

“In a close call for second place is Canada: home of lumberjacks, beavers and maple syrup (if you believe everything you read). Of course, there’s much more on offer in Canada, not least its mixture of raw beauty and majestic landscapes” reads Rough Guides.

They go on to also describe BC’s beautiful mountains:

“The Yukon Territory is a place of great wilderness, while B.C. mountains draw skiers and snowboarders in their thousands. The turquoise colours of Lake Louise are an Instagrammer’s delight, while the East Coast cities of Toronto and Montreal charm with their great restaurants and cosmopolitan atmosphere”.
