Vacations aren’t just for summer! Take advantage of the lowered prices, the lack of crowds and the beautiful scenery when you take a fall trip. Canada has endless destinations for fall adventures, but there are a handful of places that you have to visit at least once in your lifetime! Keep reading to learn about Canada’s top five fall destinations.
The Rocky Mountains, Alberta. The mountains are painted with bright colours this time of year! Chase away the back-to-school blues with a weekend trip to Alberta’s Rocky Mountains. You can even take the whole week off from everyday life – we won’t tell! Lake Louise is beautiful this time of year. It’s not too cold to kayak or hike around the lake and the fringe of orange foliage is simply stunning.
Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. Follow the Bruce Trail for the best views of autumn colours in all of Ontario. The beautiful coastline is dressed up in its colourful best and you won’t want to miss it! The fall season brings more than just beautiful leaves to Bruce Peninsula. You can also visit local fall festivals, like the Tobermory Outdoor Festival, the Pumpkin Chuckin’ event in Kemple and the Woolly Bear Festival in Lion’s Head.
Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Cape Breton Island is renowned for its stunning fall colours and beautiful scenery. Visit this wonderful Nova Scotia destination for its lovely views and fun activities! Wander the farmer’s markets for freshly harvested produce and take a hike along the Cabot Trail, which offers the best views around. You can also take part in the Celtic Colours International Festival, a fun celebration of music, dance and food. The vast number of festival events is staggering – you’ll be sure to find something you enjoy when you visit!
Niagara Region, Ontario. Southern Ontario is perfectly gorgeous in the autumn. The trees are a thousand shades of colour, ranging from yellow to red and even purple! Take advantage of the Niagara Wine Festival and other fall events in the region. You can’t beat good food, better wine and incredible autumn views! Be sure to drive along the highways to see the colours of the trees parade past your windshield.
Prince Edward Island. Prince Edward Island’s maritime climate means that the snow stays away for a long while and the autumn season stretches on. If you miss the chance for an autumn getaway elsewhere, no worries – you still have plenty of time to enjoy vibrant colours here! If you can, try to visit in time for the PEI Fall Flavours Festival or the International Shellfish Festival.
