Sightseeing in Canada

Ontario Sightseeing Tours

CN Tower

The CN Tower rises up into Toronto's skyline on the shores of Lake Ontario. Measuring 553 metres (1,815 ft) high, it was once the tallest free-standing structure in the world. It has now been surpassed in height, but it is an impressive architectural structure. The observation deck atop this tower receives over 2 million visitors per year. On a clear day you can see for miles. Enjoy dinner in the tower’s restaurant as you gaze out upon the lights of the city. If you are sightseeing in Canada, you simply must make a stop at the CN Tower.

Casa Loma

Built over three years beginning in 1911, Casa Loma sits high on hill in Toronto. Built in the style of a medieval castle, you'll step back in time as you enter its doors. Costing $3.5 million to build and containing 98 rooms it was North America's largest private residence at the time. The former estate of Sir Henry Pellatt includes an elevator, the first indoor swimming pool in Canada, secret passages, and three bowling alleys. Their sightseeing tours are self-guided and you can explore at your leisure.

Black Creek Pioneer Village

Black Creek Pioneer Village is an educational experience into the past as you take sightseeing tours through a real 19th century Victorian village. There are over 35 heritage buildings to add to the authenticity. Operate a spinning wheel, try your hand at 19th century knitting, or participate in an old-fashioned wood carving class.

Niagara Falls

Of course, no Canadian sightseeing tour would be complete without a visit to the majestic Niagara Falls. The sheer power of these falls has to be seen to be believed. Set up your home base from any of the hotels, motels, or bed & breakfast accommodations to explore this natural wonder. Sightseeing tours to the base of the Niagara Falls aboard the Maid of the Mist boats will get you "up close" to the thundering waters.

If you can't get to the ocean, Marineland is ideal location for whale watching in Canada. You'll see shows with orcas, beluga whales, walruses, sea lions, and the always entertaining dolphins. Explore the lands and see buffalo, enjoy Canadian bear watching, and you can even feed the deer...a wonderful experience for the children. Top it off at Marineland's amusement park and ride Dragon Mountain, the world's largest steel roller coaster.

Niagara-on-the-Lake

This quaint village along the shores of Lake Ontario was once the capital of Upper Canada. It is here that you can step back in time at the Fort George National Historic Site. A focal point of the War of 1812, you'll experience soldiers in authentic uniforms of the era as they guide you through what life was like during the war.

Niagara-on-the-Lake is also home to the Shaw Festival where you can watch plays in honour of George Bernard Shaw. Shows run from April to November at three theaters (the Festival, Royal George, and Court House) in the centre of town.

Niagara Wine Tours International offers Canadian sightseeing tours through award-winning wine country. Enjoy cycling in Canada as you pedal your way to various wineries and sample the goods. For wine tours in the lap of luxury, take a chauffeured trip to four boutique wineries.

Quebec Sightseeing Tours

Old Montreal contains buildings from the 1600’s as well as some of the oldest churches in Canada. Horse-drawn caleches clip-clop their way down cobblestone streets as they pass historic architecture in much the same way as they did hundreds of years ago. The Old Port is an historic maritime facility where you can enjoy a variety of museums and attractions.

To get the heart pumping try jet boating in Canada and ride the Lachine Rapids of the St. Lawrence River. Jet Boating Montreal will take you aboard their vessels and embark on the ride of your life. It’s like white water rafting in Canada but with jet engines. One of the must-do Canadian sightseeing tours for the adrenaline seeker.

Quebec City lies along the St. Lawrence River and is the second oldest existing European settlement in Canada. The Old Quarter is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the only walled city in North America. The world-famous Quebec Winter Carnival is a favourite winter activity in Canada where artists display magnificent ice sculptures.

East Coast Sightseeing Tours

Gros Morne National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site of spectacular beauty. Canadian hiking trails wind their way through uninhabited mountains and emerge atop towering cliffs over the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean. One of the top destinations for sightseeing in Canada if the power of raw nature gets your juices flowing.

Experience sailing in Canada aboard the Bluenose II, a replica of the original that became Nova Scotia's most famous fishing schooner. The Bluenose remained undefeated in sailing races becoming the fastest schooner of its time.

Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island offers some of the best sightseeing in Canada for its vivid colours and gently rolling landscape. The Confederation Trail takes you through unspoiled wilderness and a diverse natural environment. Enjoy golfing in Canada on some truly challenging and scenic links. Visit Covehead on P.E.I.’s north shore and explore quaint fishing villages and colourful houses.
