From an impressive waterfront steeped in local arts to the seventh modern wonder of the world – the CN Tower – immerse yourself in cosmopolitan Toronto, a thriving Canadian metropolis surrounded by magnificent landscapes.

“This is Canada – get into nature and outdoor activities. In winter try ice skating, go dog-sledding or snow-shoeing, while in summer hiking, mountain biking and swimming in Lake Ontario are highly recommended. The locals are very active all year round – it’s a way of life that you should try too.”
