Top Places to Visit in Canada this Fall

When we think of Canada, some people who have never visited might conjure images of miles upon miles of snowy terrain devoid of warmth. While this blanket of white will eventually cover most of Canada, the vibrant reds, oranges and yellows of autumn serve as a gentle transition between the two seasons. Here is a list of six destinations where you can enjoy the last few weeks of warm weather before winter arrives.

Banff, Alberta

Due to glacial minerals flowing down from melting ice in the mountains, lakes within Banff National Park have a beautiful blue hue. Avoid the peak tourist season and visit during the fall. Not only can you catch a last glimpse of Peyto Lake before it freezes over for the winter, you can also admire the golden foliage of the surrounding trees.

Prince Edward Island

Due to the water flowing from the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Prince Edward Island experiences milder weather than its neighbors on the mainland. As a result, the province has the longest period of fall foliage in eastern Canada with leaves keeping vibrant shades from mid-September to late-October.

Take in a gorgeous view and enjoy the abundance of food the province has to offer. For the whole month of September, P.E.I. plays host to the Fall Flavours Festival, a five-week celebration that allows visitors to discover the cuisine that places PEI on every foodie’s bucket list.

Mont-Tremblant, Quebec

A resort town nestled within the Laurentian Mountains north of Montreal, Mont-Temblant offers visitors a chance to relax and take in the beauty of fall before winter paints the mountains white. Hike up to the summit of Mont Tremblant, the highest peak within the Laurentians, to get a unique view of the foliage from above. If hiking isn’t your thing, take a gondola to the top.

Peterborough, Ontario

Located within a 90-minute drive of Toronto, Peterborough offers a perfect blend of natural and cultural attractions. The region has the largest wildlife preserve south of Algonquin and also has an array of galleries, theatres, museums and historical sites. Stay at a B&B, inn or cottage nearby and enjoy the wilderness with the convenience of civilization being just a short drive away.

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia

More than 165 events are held in the Okanagan Valley during the month of October. The largest is the Fall Okanagan Wine Festival, during the grape harvest. With an abundance of farms and vineyards, farm-to-table dining is not just a buzzword here. It is the product of the fertile land surrounding the valley and the hard work of local farmers and artisans.

Manitoulin Island, Ontario

Located in Lake Huron, Manitoulin Island is the world’s largest freshwater island. In fact, it is so big that there are more than 100 lakes on the island itself. The Wikwemikong reserve community hosts many festivals that share Native culture and tradition with tourists.
