I’ll be honest, it’s a long time since we were in Canada, but it made a big impression on me… there is just so much to see and do! We hired a car and spent two weeks covering several thousand miles to see everything we wanted to see – it was not the most relaxing holiday, but we loved it!
And here are some of my favourite photos of places we visited and things we did… I hope it gives you a taste of just one part of this amazing country!
If you visit Toronto, head up the CN Tower for a great view of the city, before taking a tour of the impressive Rogers Centre (formerly SkyDome)….
No visit to Ontario would be complete without a visit to the spectacular Niagara Falls and a soggy ride on the legendary Maid of the Mist…
We spent a pleasant night aboard the Alexander Henry in Kingston – staying in the Chief Engineers’ Cabin was quite an experience and gave us a real taste of what life on board must have been like. It is definitely one of the most unusual places I’ve spent the night!
Historic Quebec City is a lovely place to wander around, with its fortifications and narrow streets.
Head East to the pretty village of Tadoussac where you can stay at the beautifully located Hotel Tadoussac, with its fabulous views over the channel where the Saguenay and Saint Lawrence Rivers meet. Then take a rib out to watch various species of whales up close…
Those are a few of my favourite photos from our road trip – I hope they have inspired you to visit Canada? Next time we plan to visit Western Canada and check out what that has to offer… so watch this space!
Note: All these photos were taken on a film camera (in the pre-digital age!) and scanned in hence the slightly grainy appearance.
