5 Things to do In Canada

Naturally when you think of Canada, you picture downtown Toronto or Ottawa and its main attractions such as the CN Tower, or Parliament Hill. Or you think of Niagara Falls and lakes and forests. But that’s not all we’ve got. There’s a plethora of things to do up here in the north. In fact, here’s a list of 5 things to do in Canada:

1. Bungee Jump in Wakefield Quebec

Bungee Jump in Wakefield Quebec

With a jump platform 200 feet above the waters, Great Canadian Bungee is North America’s highest bungee jump and the only place in America where you can experience either a head or body dip. And not only is the jump the highest but you will experience a rebound higher than any jump on the continent. You also get the option of being connected by your ankles or your waist. If there’s any where you’re looking for to safely plummet towards the water and get that thrill, then this is it.

2. Visit the Hot Springs in the Canadian Rockies

An hour and a half drive from Banff, Alberta takes you to The Village of Radium Hot Springs. Whether you go by yourself, with a partner or the whole family, this village has something for everyone. And if you head over to Kootenay National Park, you will come across the world-famous Radium Hot Springs Mineral Pools, where you can relax and take in the beautiful view and the natural rock walls.

3. Visit the largest shopping centre in North America

When we say largest shopping centre, we truly mean it. With over 800 stores, an amusement park, a water park complete with a fully sized wave pull and even their own fantasy hotel (yes I’m in awe as well), the West Edmonton Mall is a must see to believe kind of deal.

4. Skate down the Rideau Canal in Ottawa

In the winter this area turns into the world’s largest skating rink, from the core of downtown Ottawa to Dows lake, the skateway is 4.8 miles long. If you feel hungry or tired from skating, don’t worry, all along the skateway are stands offering various types of foods and drinks. Access to the Rideau Canal Skateway is absolutely free but be sure to check ice conditions before heading over.

5. Walk above Toronto at the CN Tower Edge Walk

Is any bucket list complete without Toronto’s biggest attraction? Come to Toronto’s tallest attraction on the roof of the CN Tower’s restaurant, The Edge Walk. Test your limits by talking a stroll across the edge of the CN Tower 1,168 feet above the ground. Yes, it’s that high. If you’re looking for a thrill, you’ve come to the right place. The total experience is an hour and a half with a 20-30-minute outdoor walk.

These are just 5 of thousands of things to do in Canada. Now take your pick, get out there, and enjoy all things Canadian.
