11. Banff Town, Alberta
If Banff doesn’t impress you with its combination of jaw dropping wild mountain beauty and great boutique shopping perfect for the wildlife traveller taking a break from stalking wildlife, then no town in Canada will. [ttshare]Situated in the Banff National Park, it’s really a destination within a destination. [/ttshare]From hot springs to mountain hikes, there is little the outdoorsman or woman will not like about this place, and hey, you can always disappear back into the wilderness of the national park once you’ve done your shopping. Beware of wolves, elks etc.

On the eastern shore of Lake Huron sits the town of Goderich, a town which even the Queen of England, Elizabeth II, has called the “prettiest town in Canada”. It’s beautiful beaches, lush parks, heritage and events draw the tourist crowds to Goderich which has won numerous awards as being the most beautiful town in Canada.
6. Labrador City, Newfoundland
Can we get a double woof? Based in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Labrador City(or Lab City) is actually a town. The town got its start in mining(it’s the Iron ore capital of Canada) but has smartened up and offers green pursuits and eco-tourism, even though mining is still the main industry in the town. It’s worth to check out the Basilica of our Lady of Perpetual Help. Jump on a snowmobile and explore this beautiful place under the northern lights.
5. Riviere-Du-Loup, Quebec
River views and sunsets worth Instagramming, Riviere-Du-Loup(meaning Wolf’s river in French) straddles the Saint Lawrence River in the province of Quebec. Rich in history and local crafts, Canadians opt to visit this beautiful town in summer. Why not visit and relax in one of the many spa’s in the town or take a look at the beautiful built heritage of Riviere-Du-Loup. Absolutely stunning.
4. Niagara on the lake, Ontario
This town is located where Lake Ontario meets the Niagara River. Heritage tourism is a big draw-card to the town as well as eco-tourism with activities like boat trips on the Niagara river or visiting a butterfly sanctuary on the itinerary. The calm streets lined with beautiful houses provides ample charm. Why not check out Niagara on the Lake?
3. Whistler, British Columbia
