From coast to coast, we explore Canada's natural marvels and some of the world's most stunning sites. These six destinations will take your breath away.
Recently, travel review website TripAdvisor revealed its 10 dramatic landscapes list including sites such as the Badlands National Park in South Dakota and the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland. All stunning sites to be sure -- but not a Canadian destination on the list!
We Canadians know there are many places across our country that take our breath away.
Here are six of our favourites.
The rocky coasts seem a stark contrast to the icy beauties that calmly float in each spring. Don't let that calm demeanour fool you, however -- the irregular shapes of icebergs and uneven rate at which they melt can lead to some dramatic results. Not only will you see huge chunks of ice crash into the ocean, icebergs can also tip over or roll with little warning. (Like this amateur video of an iceberg breaking up near Spillers Cove, Twillingate.)
Where is the best place to see them? Try Bay Bulls/Witless Bay, St. John's, Cape Spear, Bonavista, Twillingate, La Scie, St. Anthony, Point Amour, Battle Harbour and Cartwright. (You can track active icebergs using this online iceberg finder.) In Newfoundland, the best time to spot the bergs is late May to early June while Labrador has a longer viewing season from March to July.
You can spot some of the icebergs from land -- such as Signal Hill in St. John's or the Iceberg Alley Trail boardwalk in St. Anthony -- or hop an iceberg boat tour for an up-close-and-personal look.
