Yet, the towns and cities of this gigantic unspoiled country have nothing to be ashamed of in terms of cosmopolitan culture and these models of urban planning are extremely pleasant to visit. Let yourself be tempted by a stroll on Montreal's Mont-Royal, a museum at Winnipeg, a hockey match in Toronto or an exotic restaurant in Vancouver to taste the civilised lifestyle of this nation.
Wherever you go, you will be won over by its inhabitants' warm, cordial welcome, be it in a tepee, a maple farm, an igloo or a café terrace. If one word were to sum up a Canadian vacation it would have to be "Diversity"!
