As the world’s second largest country that spans six time zones, borders three oceans and shares the longest undefended border in the world, Canada has much to offer any tourist that decides to visit this northern wonderland. While most tourists visiting Canada stick to the main tourist attractions of the western national parks or the eastern metropolises, they miss out on many hidden gems spread across the country that tell stories of Canada’s history, which made the country what it is today.

L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978 and contains the first known artifacts that confirm European presence in North America.
