Set on the west arm of sapphire-blue kootenay lake in southeastern bc’s selkirk mountains, nelson is often called one of canada’s prettiest and fall is the best time to visit. mix in victorian architecture, hearty locals, and urban escapees, it is no surprise why we love this laid-back mountain town. head to our ig story for 8 other bc towns you should visit this season—you’ll find plenty of autumnal delights: from alpine architecture to harvest-time hikes and farm-fresh feasts.

Tucked into montreal's vibrant downtown is the basilique notre-dame de montreal, the first gothic revival style church in canada. it’s stunning interior is complemented with numerous interpretive programs that allow you to learn about and experience the unique location in interesting ways. a fan favourite is their “take a seat at the organ” event that allows you to listen to the incredible melody of the o***n while experiencing the amazing architecture of the church in a small group setting. #explorecanada

A beautiful shot of the lionsgate bridge in vancouver, bc!
this impressive suspension bridge crosses the burrard inlet and links the city of vancouver to the north shore. the ‘lions gate’ refers to the lions - two mountain peaks north of vancouver that are visible from the bridge. to get the best views of this beauty, head to stanley park and cycle or walk around the sea wall, which goes directly under the bridge. or, for a higher perspective, you could head up to prospect point, where you can also enjoy some area-sourced canadian food and craft beer at the bar & grill while you take in the views! #explorecanada
