See amazing aerial views of Niagara Falls and visit a polar bear habitat in Ontario. Tour Lower Canada, including Canada’s capital city of Ottawa and Quebec’s southern border region. Visit Torngat Mountain National Park to learn about land that originally belonged to the Nunatsiavut people from northern Labrador and the Nunavut Inuit of northern Quebec.

Visit the Prairies and see the Saskatchewan River Delta, the largest inland delta in North America, in east-central Saskatchewan and west-central Manitoba. Visit Lake Agassiz in Manitoba, formed 11,500 years ago from the meltwaters of a massive ice sheet or travel to the uranium mines in Saskatchewan. Explore the wonders of the continental divide, from Akamina-Kishinena Provincial Park on the British Columbia/Alberta border to the soaring summits of Banff National Park.

On the West coast, visit sea lion colonies at St. Joseph’s Rocks in Haida Gwaii or tour the waterways of British Columbia. In Canada’s North, see the beautiful tundra of Nunavut, travel with an artist painting landscapes in White Pass, Yukon Territory, or learn about the geology of the Brock River Canyon near Paulatuk, Northwest Territories.
