Canada’s culture: between nature and metropolis in Ontario
The province of Ontario is the epitome of Canada. The world-famous Niagara Falls are located there. With a height of almost 60 m, the Niagara River rushes into the depths at the border to the USA.
In Canada's capital, Ottawa is a flourishing city where the country’s culture influences daily life. Numerous tourists are enchanted by the National Museum and many art galleries in the “City of Festivals.”
And if the city is too much for you, visit the CN Tower in Canada's largest city, Toronto. Some 500 meters above the metropolis, visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view of the skyline of the megacity. You better not be afraid of heights, the glass floor provides amazing views, however, it requires a bit of courage to step on it.
Less known, but just as worth seeing, are Ontario's nature parks. There, trekking and mountain lovers get their money's worth in the intact forests around Lake Superior and the natural lakes and rivers in Algonkin Provincial Park.

At the latest since the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary, it has been clear that Canada is more than just a summer destination. In the extensive ski areas in the west of the country, winter sports enthusiasts get their money's worth. Whether on the slopes, on touring skis on the peaks of the Rockies or freeskiing – the country holds a range of winter sports activities for every taste.
The most famous ski area in Canada is Whistler Blackcomb. After a two-hour drive from Vancouver, the more than 200 marked slopes open up unimagined possibilities. The ski resort has been awarded several times as the best in North America.
Canada's highest ski area, however, is located in the middle of Banff National Park. Especially those who love steep and challenging slopes can really let off steam here.
And who doesn't know the spectacular downhill races of the World Cup ski circus in Lake Louise? With this ski resort, the province of Alberta is home to a veritable winter sports jewel. Guests can enjoy over 140 groomed and natural slopes surrounded by glaciers and turquoise lakes.
