What to See & Do in Canada?

Canada, the second largest country in the world, offers a wealth of amazing experiences in its many regions, featuring a breathtaking blend of natural beauty and vibrant cities filled with friendly people and great shopping. The Trans Canada Highway (“TCH”) is a provincally-federally funded roadway from the Pacific Ocean tothe Atlantic Ocean that traverses all ten provinces. The Highway goes through both urban and rural areas, with only 3% being urbanized and 97% being natural and rural.

You can embark on an itinerary that takes you from one end of the country to the other, explore  a specific province, discover countless activities and attractions in thousands of communities, or join a Regional Tour that covers a wide range of destinations. Alternatively, you can check off must-see items from our Ultimate Bucket List!

In planning your travel, or while you are on the road, check out our directory listings of Canadian tourism and hospitality operators (accommodations, attractions, emergency services, entertainment, restaurants, shopping, and transportation) which you can view By Category, By Locale, by Name (on any page) or by category Close To You (once on any Search Results page)!

We welcome any feedback and suggestions you may have, and for the latest road, weather, and construction updates, follow us on TransCanadaHighway’s Facebook page

Because we are not government funded or government managed, we can give  unique prespectives that visitors and travellers will be interested in, or find ciritical to their planning and travelling. For example, in Sault Ste Marie and Niagara Falls, we cover both the Canadian and the US sides of the border. We also cover communities that are NOT on the Trans Canada Highway, but worth visiting, like the Alberta Rockies and BC Rockies,  the Okanagan Region of BC, and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and Niagara Falls
