Although beautiful in all seasons, Canada in the winter can appear to be almost magical.
Thick white snow not only sits on the mountain tops, but covers the cities, lakes and forests. Although the temperature drops, The Great White North thrives in the colder weather. Incredible winter activities await you no matter where you visit.
What are you waiting for? Here’s our favourite photography which captures Canada looking like a picture-perfect winter wonderland.
