Found in Kootenay National Park, which is a wonderful unspoiled oasis, a World Heritage Site, that attracts hikers, climbers, and photographers. Haffner Creek is especially compelling for the adrenaline lovers: its steep rocky walls challenge even the most experienced climbers. The visitors are also tempted by the stunning ice pillars and Caveman cave, which features huge stalactites.

The beautiful city of Quebec gets covered in snow and decorated in thousands of lights in winter, thus becoming a desirable destination. Meanwhile, Petit Champlain is the most popular and picturesque neighborhood: visitors come here to explore the historical architecture, narrow cobblestone streets, and mural paintings. Moreover – it is the oldest shopping district on the whole continent!

Besides all the historically significant buildings, little boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants also attract crowds.

An impressive mountain, made of 2015 m (6610 ft) high twin towers, can be found in Auyuittuq National Park. The name comes from Scandinavian mythology, where Asgard is the kingdom of the gods, while it is called Sivanitirutinguak by the Inuit. The whole park is a wonderful place to visit, for its unspoiled nature, high peaks, and enigmatic serenity.

Why go there? Access is quite difficult, for there are really very few tourist facilities – only one official campsite throughout this huge nature reserve! 10-16 day tours are available both in summer and winter from Pangnirtung or Iqaluit.
