Planning a holiday to Canada? Here are five reasons that Ontario should be at the top of your places to visit.


You are in nature’s playground

Ontario is filled with National and Provincial Parks that offer some of the best natural scenery in the world. This provides any outdoor adventurer many choices of activities, you can kayak down the world’s largest network of canoe routes, go diving along the coast or go hiking among the many trails. There is cross-country skiing in the winter months. Some of the most popular National and Provincial Parks in the Ontario region are: Georgian Bay Islands National Park, Fathom Five National Marine Park, Killarney Provincial Park or the Bruce Peninsula National Park. My advice is to find a great hotel, such as the Kitchener hotels and set up a base for a few days, so you can head off exploring.

Discover the 1000 islands

Located at the St Lawrence river the 1000 islands is a perfect relaxing getaway all year round. Whether you are looking for a romantic weekend or a bit more of an adventure this destination in Ontario has something for everyone.

Experience wildlife in its natural habitat

With all the natural glory of Ontario its not surprising there as a vast array of wildlife in the region. Watch the wild grey wolves come out to play, or perhaps spot a black bear in the forest. There are also bears, moose, deer, beavers and raccoons just to name a few. Though for safety purpose some of these animals you may want to watch from afar, on a guided wildlife tour

Ontario is home to Canada’s largest city

Toronto, Canada’s largest city is located in the Ontario region and has a lot to offer any tourist. Being very similar to New York, Toronto has a great cosmopolitan vibe that offers a true city experience. You can taste your way through the city by visiting one of the many different ethnic sub culture areas of Chinatown, Little India or Little Italy or head west to all the trendy cafes and bars, in the Queen St West district. Shop up a storm at the Kensington or St Lawrence markets or take relaxing day trip to Toronto Island. A peaceful little set of islands only a ten minute ferry ride away from the city centre.

It’s home to a natural wonder of the world

The Niagara Falls is on the border of U.S.A and Canada, which just so happens to be in the Ontario region. Extra bonus that on the Canadian side of the border is the biggest falls, Horseshoe Falls. So when visiting this region make sure you schedule in a day or two to visit this natural wonder of the world.
