Canada holds a lot of beauty reflected in its soaring fog clad mountainous regions, lush forested areas, meadows and prairies and stunning beachfront. While the country itself is quite large and it’s practically impossible to explore the entirety of it in a single trip, there are many famous spots that highlight the best scenery and sights Canada has to offer.
There are many ways to visit Canada with visitor/tourist visas and eTA, but one of the most attractive options for a large population is the Working Holiday Visa. It combines the best of both worlds by not only letting you explore the Great White North, but also gain some valuable and precious Canadian experience to further your prospects of immigration, with no need to get in too deep to the Canadian immigration system and deal with terms like Express entry, Canada CRS score and others. If you are a youthful and ambitious person falling in the eligibility criteria for IEC, satiate your wanderlust by applying for it and visiting Canada the right way.
Here are some of the best places that will make you fall in love with the country and encourage you to make it your forever home.

Another splendid alpine lake with an even more dramatic surrounding is the Morain Lake just a short walk from Lake Louise.
