Explore The Beauty of Canada With Study Travel

For incredible inspiration and an injection of adventure in the subject you study, travel to Canada, one the most naturally diverse countries in the world. Famously clean-living, laid-back and very welcoming, the Canadians have a good standard of living and seem very content and positive about their beautiful country. Combining study, travel and a touch of adventure is the perfect way to enhance a student’s learning and encourage personal development.

Canada has much to satisfy the adventurous student. With a popular outdoor culture there is the opportunity to hike, climb, ski or kayak and explore some of the magnificent natural playground that makes up the majority of this vast country. You may be lucky enough to encounter a Grizzly Bear or even spot a Humpback Whale while on a boat trip off the west coast. Seeing one of these beauties gracefully break the surface of the ocean is an awesome experience.

Visit Niagara Falls, Canada’s Most Famed Attraction

Niagara Falls is one of the world’s most stunning [and certainly its most voluminous] waterfall in terms of water flow. The Niagara Falls waterfall is actually a group of three that is located right on the border between The United States and Canada. Just standing and taking in this amazing sight is breathtaking, but the more adventurous can get really close and take an exciting boat trip right under the fall of the water; it’s a lot of fun but be prepared to get very wet! The water racing over the precipice is deafening, the spray is spectacular and the feeling of human insignificance in the presence of such a sight is heightened. Visiting these falls is certainly a memorable and also somewhat humbling experience.

City Life

Vancouver is situated on the coast of Canada and is considered one of the best places in the world to live. A visit to Vancouver helps students identify the differences between this first world society and their own, as well as question the economic disparities and reasons for these. This city is home to a very diverse population and therefore many languages are spoken – in fact, English is the first language of only about half of the people that live here.

Another great city is the provincial, cultural and economic capital of Canada, Toronto. There are so many opportunities in the city to suit several different areas of study. Travel to Toronto to visit one of the many museums, explore Toronto Island, or climb the tallest free-standing tower in the western hemisphere, The CN Tower. The more daring among your students can even do an Edge Walk, an exhilarating no-hands walk right on the outside ledge of the tower. The views are second to none even if the experience makes it tough to keep your eyes open.

Montreal is another cultural gem. There is an eclectic art scene here and some wonderful museums housing them. If French is your field of study, travel to Quebec where students can immerse themselves in the bilingual culture. Canada has endless opportunities for exploration, study and adventure and a holiday here will certainly be one to remember.
