Travelling in Canada, Where to Go & What to Do
Travelling in Canada is something I would urge anyone and everyone to do at least once in their lives. It quickly became one of my favourite places to travel to after my first visit – everything from the people to the food, the food to the weather (hot and cold!). It’s a truly amazing place and so I wanted to share some more things with you based off of my last visit!
Before I say anything else, my number one tip for travelling in Canada is hire a car. It just makes everything a bit easier, getting from place to place and gives you a bit more freedom on your trip.
As you may have seen on our Instagram, this trip was at the beginning of the year so the weather was pretty cold and snowy but that was perfect because the trip was initially a ski trip. We headed to the Blue Mountains which I would 100% recommend. The skiing itself is more so on hills than mountains but the general vibe of the place is amazing. If you’re going to go, I would suggest going with quite a big group – whether that be friends or family – and hiring/renting out a house. Again, it gives you a bit more freedom and means you can do more of what you want – it doesn’t have to be a skiing holiday that way.
Now because I went in winter, a lot of the activities I did you can only do in winter. For example… There’s an amazing winter ice skating place that goes through a forest which is about 2.5 hours from Toronto – another reason why hiring a car is a good idea. There is also an ice skating rink in the centre of town which is a must, especially if you can’t make it to the one outside of Toronto.
Of course there’s all sorts to do in Canada some more ‘classic tourist’ than others like Niagara Falls. It’s almost like a different place in winter to the rest of the year, they – as I’m sure you’ll know/will have seen – get frozen over and the whole thing is completely white, dusted in snow. It really is amazing to see, so if you’re there around winter time I would definitely recommend – especially if you’ve never been.
Time to talk food.
A great find for us was Joey or Joey’s, its a perfect chain for lunch or an easy dinner. You can almost certainly find something for everyone on the menu, and the food’s good so no one should be complaining!
Another place I loved when I was out there was the Cactus Club. It’s great for dinner and they have a lovely roof terrace which is really fun. The food is fantastic!
Also, brunch. Cannot forget about brunch. Rose and Sons is a tiny little cafe but does THE BEST brunch! Super yummy, again something for everyone.
Living as digital nomads completely changed my life, and has allowed us all to do things we never thought we’d be able to do.

Until next time!
