The world's second largest country isn't short of charms, quirks and attractions, from vast painterly landscapes to ice rink action, shining cosmo-capitals to dirt-lined and thrilling rodeos. Big, boisterous, beautiful and surprisingly hard to define, Canada is a traveller's dream. See itinerary ideas

Culturally, Canada is a cross-stitch of a thousand threads, combining indigenous traditions and a mix of European and Asian and other immigrant influences. City high streets boast a wonderful array of cafés, shops and cuisines and French-speaking Quebec is one of the world's finest examples of preservation of a culture. Canada is tolerant, inviting and, according to many, friendlier than its flashy neighbour.

The country has produced some of pop culture's best-loved stars, from cult-favourite Leslie Nielsen to revered painter Kenojuak Ashevak, the Group of Seven to Quebec's world-famous Cirque de Soleil. Leonard Cohen, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell all hail from Canada, as does the world's favourite baby faced pop star, Justin Bieber. You win some, you lose some.

Canada's greatest stars however are the phenomenal and endless wild landscapes, so varied in topography and rich in animal life. The nation is literally crammed full of lakes, great and small, and boasts mountain ranges, frozen tundra and forests, home to birds and bees, bears and bison. Head into the wilderness, and you'd be unlucky not to spot a black bear, a moose or a beaver. You might even hear grey wolves howling in the distance.
