Take in the great cities: Vancouver with its magnificent western seaboard setting; Toronto, where the CN Towerthe world's tallest freestanding structurepierces the skyline; Ottawa, the ideal capital city; bilingual, cosmopolitan Montreal; and Quebec, the walled city and World Heritage Site. Marvel at the natural wonders: the misty grandeur of Niagara Falls, the aquamarine waters of Lake Louise, and the spectacular coastline of Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Island. Then journey to Canada's off-the-beaten path treasures: the Inside Passage, Canada's historical inland waterway; Newfoundland's spring ritual of the returning humpback whales; and Alberta's fossil-rich badlands.
Along the way, the authors share their experience and frank opinions, offering recommendations for recreation from heli-skiing to motor coach touring, dining options from the French provincial flavors of Quebec to the Asian tang of Vancouver, and exceptional accommodations to suit all tastes and pockets.
