Telegraph Cove, Vancouver Island

Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the world and enjoy beauty and nature? Check out five of Canada’s best kept secrets.

Isle d’Anticosti, Quebec:
Located at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, this preserved wilderness is a paradise for nature lovers. Hunters will delight to know there are thousands of deer here. Hike a trail that leads down to a waterfall that is higher than Niagara Falls. Fish for salmon, hunt for the fossils that abound in the area or kayak down the river. Explore nearby caves or the many ship wrecks dotting the coastline.


The Beach, Toronto, Ontario:
Located on Lake Ontario’s shores, this little gem is no secret to the locals but lesser known by outsiders. Here visitors will find so much to see and do they might not ever want to leave. Shop the charming boutiques, stroll the lovely public gardens, dine in the nice restaurants. Hang out on the beaches or walk along the boardwalk.


Iron Horse Trail, Alberta:
Located in the east central part of Alberta, this area is often used by all-terrain vehicles. Take a scenic drive here to capture some of its picturesque scenery. Bicycle or horse ride along peaceful trails of beautiful woodland and trickling streams. Or if in winter, snowmobile along the snowy hills.
Marble Mountain

Telegraph Cove:
Telegraph Cove is an isolated village nestled near the north end of Vancouver Island with an old telegraph station and sawmill. Fish for salmon or halibut. Go kayaking on the beautiful river or watch the orca whales and dolphins on the shores.
