After the break-up of the former Soviet Union Canada
has now become the world's largest country.
The land mass covers 9,980,000 square
kilometresor roughly the size of Europe.
If you'relooking for some of the most
diversescenery in a single country
then Canada will not disappoint.
On the West coast the Pacific ocean
laps gently around the various inlets
and coastal islands that are a
haven for all marine animals such
as Orcas, seals and dolphins who
live in some of the richest fishing
waters in the world.
As you roll inland the temperate forests quickly yield to the coastal mountains that are thickly covered in snow for six months of the year. Mountains generally take precedence until you fall down the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies and the prairies fan out to produce one of the largest wheat belts in the world. Gradually travelling east the prairies and forests never quite give up the horizon but are interspersed by the great lakes in the south-east of the country until the Atlantic rolls into view. The Northwest Territories and the Yukon extend right up to the North Pole and the arctic temperatures and tundra that coats the land and ensures that only the hardiest of species survive, including people.
Alberta enjoys distinct seasons with a warm summer from May to September. The winter months see an abundance of snowfall. Edmonton, the province capital, rarely sees winter temperatures rise above freezing from November to March.
To travel across B.C in one day you might find several seasons at once. The south coast sees the mildest of the country's temperatures. Even the depth of winter can feel like a spring day which strongly contrasts the snow-capped mountains surrounding the city. The storms that roll in off the Pacific give a lot of rain at lower elevations and drapes the Coastal and Rockie mountain ranges in a deep snowpack.
Known as the heartland of Canada its long-warm summers and the country's best sunshine record make sitting on the beaches of Lake Manitoba a pleasant affair. However, the winters like the other provinces can be long and cold with temperature extremes, particularly to the north .
By the time the winds have moved from the west coast to Ontario they usually have dropped somewhat in temperature and can make for cold dry winters. Rainfall isn't as high as the mountainous states and summers are pleasant with average highs of over 70 degrees for July and August.
Much like its neighbour Manitoba with long warm summers and cold dry winters.
Yukon and Northwest Territories
It seems that winter hardly relinquishes its grip on these two neighbouring provinces. Even the almost 24 hour daylight during June still makes for cold evenings. The depths of winter see some of the coldest temperatures on the planet with an average high for January in Whitehorse a bitter -10c.
