Canada is one of the rare countries where natural complexes are preserved in pristine condition and are at the same time practically “at hand” in modern cities.
For example, Banff, the oldest national park in the country, is one of Canada’s most popular tourist destinations, which is also a resort based on hot mineral springs. Jasper is famous for its landscapes, unique nature and numerous glacial lakes. Black and brown bears, deer, martens, and about two hundred species of birds live there.
Musicians need money to earn money in the underground passages of the Toronto subway. A special commission arranges an audition, and only a select license is issued, for which you still have to pay.
Also known: Mount Robson National Park, waterfalls on the Plis River, Wood Buffalo National Park – the habitat of bison. Waterton Lakes (Alberta), Glacier, and Clwain Parks are known for grizzly populations, and the Ouyuttik Nature Reserve on Baffin Island protects unique tundra communities. In St. Lawrence Bay, migratory herds of whales can be seen, and in the west, Pacific Rim National Park (Lake Vancouver) is inhabited by sea otters and eared seals. You can admire glaciers and waterfalls in the Kutney, Yoho parks and others.
