Places to explore during your study breaks
The Rocky Mountains (Rockies) and the Banff National Park
Every year millions of people visit Banff in the Canadian Rockies, attracted by the beautiful turquoise green lakes, stunning mountain views, snow-capped peaks, and majestic glaciers. If you enjoy the outdoors and love hiking, paddling, cycling or climbing, or are a budding photographer, you should consider visiting Banff in your summer break.
Niagara Falls is Canada's most famous natural attraction; it is actually made up of three different falls - the American Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls. The Horseshoe Falls are on the Canadian side of the border whilst the other two are across the border on the U.S. side. Although, you may have seen photos of the enormous 57 metre drop, there is nothing like experiencing the power of the real thing.
Within Quebec City is the historic Old Quebec, founded in 1608, containing the city's most historic buildings, including the well-known Château Frontenac. Enjoy the beauty of these amazing buildings and discover great food and the unique shopping of the Rue du Petit Champlain.
Toronto's CN Tower
On the shores of Lake Ontario, you will find the landmark CN Tower. At 553 metres tall, this is one of the tallest structures in the world. From the revolving restaurant at the top you can enjoy a spectacular view of the city of Toronto and Lake Ontario, or you can test your bravery by walking across its glass floor – 113 stories (342 metres) above the ground.
