Niagara Falls, Canada

Whether observed day or night, from a viewing platform or from a boat, the 3,160 tons of water that flow over Niagara Falls every second are a sight to be seen.

The Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA

The Grand Canyon is 277 miles long, and, at its widest point, 18 miles across. You can explore various areas of the massive canyon at the Grand Canyon National Park

Peyto Lake, Banff National Park, Canada

It’s hard to believe that Peyto Lake’s sparkling turquoise water is natural, but the color actually comes from significant amounts of glacial flour (tiny rock particles that result from glacial erosion) that are deposited into the water.
