1. Jasper National Park
As the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies, Jasper is ripe for exploration. When you're not hiking through Maligne Canyon, whitewater rafting down the Athabasca River or snapping photos of Spirit Island, you can enjoy a bird's-eye view of the beautiful scenery from the Jasper SkyTram. Keep your eyes peeled for the 53 species of mammals that call this park home.

2. Banff National Park
Nestled amid the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, both nature enthusiasts and luxury-seekers flock to this tiny mountain town in Alberta. Visitors can spend their days skiing or hiking at Banff National Park and admiring Lake Louise before retiring to one of the several opulent hotels for some spa therapy.

3. Niagara Falls
Travel here to see and capture photos of the iconic natural attraction. With the Canadian Horseshoe Falls plummeting over the 188-foot drop at up to 68 mph, the falls are this destination's main draw. However, the area also offers a variety of other things to enjoy like museums, parks, wineries and casinos

4. Victoria & Vancouver Island
While Montreal and Québec City honor Canada's French roots, Victoria pays tribute to the country's British heritage. Many visit British Columbia's capital for afternoon tea, a tour of Parliament or a history lesson at the Royal British Columbia Museum. Others are interested in sampling Vancouver Island's wineries.

5. Quebec City
This Canadian city charms its visitors with the 17th- and 18th-century buildings that make up Old Québec – a UNESCO World Heritage site. Meanwhile, the aromas of freshly baked bread and brewing espresso fill the cobblestone streets with the essence of Paris.
