Canada’s top 7 most beautiful dog-friendly locations

October 29, 2019

A picturesque trip around the country’s most stunning sites. To visit with your dog, of course!

From ocean to ocean to ocean, Canada is bursting with breathtaking locations. And who wouldn’t want to share the beauty—with your dog at your side—on Instagram? Here are our top picks.

1. Lake Louise
We’ve all seen the stunning photos. And we all know that Lake Louise is in Banff National Park in Alberta. But did you know that this magical location—with its turquoise water and snow-capped mountains—allows dogs on site? A few words of advice: avoid the crowds by visiting early in the morning (there’s nothing like hordes of people to spoil your Instagram pics!).

2. The Capilano Suspension Bridge
One hundred and forty metres long and 70 metres high, the Capilano Suspension Bridge is not for people—or dogs—who are scared of heights! But if you’re up for the adventure it’s well worth the trip. The bridge is one of the most popular attractions in North Vancouver. Another reason to strut your stuff on Insta.

3. Mont-Orford National Park
To take in the beautiful views of Quebec’s Eastern Townships, “Orford” is simply a must during the fall months.

With stunningly colourful panoramas, Mont-Orford is the ideal location for hikes with your dog … and your pictures are almost guaranteed to make your friends jealous.

4. The Fundy Trail Parkway
The word “trail” may not trigger everyone’s imagination but there’s so much to do and see along this spectacular parkway on the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick. You can walk along the coastline for more than 30 kilometres, fork out onto adjoining trails and kayak in the bay … as long as your dog has sea legs!

5. Percé
When you talk about the Gaspé Peninsula, the photogenic village of Percé, is probably the first place that comes to mind. You can’t stop by without taking a selfie in front of the famous rock. But there’s so much more! Cap-Bon-Ami, just 2 hours away by car, is less popular but just as spectacular. Your dog will thank you.

6. Chedoke Falls
It’s more than 18 metres and one of the jewels in Ontario’s crown: Chedoke Falls, one of the best-known waterfalls close to Hamilton (a.k.a. “the city of waterfalls”). When it comes to water, people in Ontario have an embarrassment of riches: much of the province’s rugged shoreline makes you think of the sea. Enjoy all that beauty with your dog at your side!

7. Pembina Valley Provincial Park
No trip to the prairies would be complete without a visit to the spectacular Pembina Valley Provincial Park in Manitoba. Take in the varied landscapes and wealth of wildlife. And be sure to prepare your dog for chance encounters … with the park’s abundant deer and wild turkeys!
