Canada is a vast country, and exploring its entirety on a single trip is practically impossible. So, it is best to pick one or two regions for an in-depth exploration. Spending 2 weeks in Canada gives you enough time to cover several destinations and delve into Canadian culture at a relaxed pace. Go on sightseeing tours of popular cities such as Toronto and Calgary, visit East Coast beaches such as Parlee Beach, and head to the Canadian Rockies. Try ziplining in Whistler, marvel at the natural spectacle of Gros Morne National Park, and explore the quirky neighborhoods of Montreal. For an off-the-beaten-path experience, venture to the vast tundra landscapes of Nunavut, witnessing the unique Inuit way of life and catching glimpses of the Northern Lights.

Still confused about what to see and do in your 2-week-long Canada trip? Here are our top 3 recommended itineraries:
